"My average run is 5-6 miles per while training around 25 to 45 miles a week and it's not unusual to experience an elevation gain in the 300 to 500-foot range per run. I have noticed that my form deteriorates after 12-15 mile runs and that a shoe could help to counteract some of those negative effects. With that said, I was really open to trying out a stability shoe to give my legs and knees a bit of a relief during the fall/winter as I scale back my miles through the winter.
Since receiving these shoes, I have completed some easy miles, some fast miles, and a nice slow recovery long run. My early feedback is that the upper and lacing system is developed to hug your foot but also allow it to be comfortable as it swells on a run.
Usually, on a long run I get accustomed to needing to work harder as I get tired, but with the DNA system, I get a little bit of help from its energy return and it's better than expected in the forefoot. This definitely helped with keeping my form longer.
Lastly, I really like the effort that was put into designing the heal of this shoe. In the past, I have tried to branch out from a few models that I'm comfortable with but had minimal success because I usually get blisters or need more heal support, but the Adrenaline passes the test here. It's comfortable and very supportive of the heel.
I look forward to logging more miles in these shoes in the future and through the winter months."
