Brooks Green Silence $100

Brooks Green Silence $100
The Green Silence is Brooks’ first new racing shoe in a decade.  

The shoe demonstrates that performance and sustainability are compatible; many of the components are made from recycled plastics and the shoe is built with water-based adhesives and uses soy-based inks. The new midsole geometry provides flexibility and cushioning, with just enough outersole for traction and durability. The upper is open mesh with a nicely cushioned tongue that opens only on the lateral side in order to provide extra medial support. The shoes have a unique appearance, as the contrasting red and yellow colors are transposed, so the shoes aren’t identical, and the midsole of the right is red, while the left is yellow. The curved shape favors the higher-arched feet, however the roomy forefoot may allow enough wiggle room for lowerarched feet to find an acceptable fit.

  • Sizes: men 4–12,13,14 (unisex)
  • Weight: 8.0 oz. (men’s 11)
  • Shape: semi-curved to curved
  • Fit: snug heel, wide forefoot For: medium- to high-arched feet with neutral biomechanics
  • Range: efficient runners - up to a marathon; heavy strikers - up to 20K or just beyond

Newton Gravitas=Gravity $175

Newton Gravitas=Gravity $175
Newton’s neutral trainer Gravitas=Gravity (Gravitas is Latin for gravity) has reached the second round, with some improvements. The upper continues with the same stretchy airmesh as before, but has altered the overlays to provide the saddle-like support with a bit more open forefoot.  

The midsole features a denser foam throughout, both for durability and improved responsiveness. The heel has been slightly reshaped to aid in transition—yes, you’re expected to land on your midfoot or forefoot, but it takes some getting used to—as does the aforementioned reshaped heel. The outersole has a tougher rubber compound on the actuator lugs, blown rubber beneath the toes, and carbon rubber in the heel. Bottom line? The shoe has been upgraded, adding value to a well-designed, high-end shoe.

Vasque Transistor FS $100

Vasque Transistor FS $100
Here Vasque takes a different approach to construction and improves performance in the process. Using a new, better-fitting last that’s contoured to represent the bottom of your feet (most other lasts are fairly flat-bottomed), the construction merges the Strobel board and innersole for the first time in a trail shoe.  

Vasque’s Foot Sync uses its Integrated Custom Footbed over a Flux Foam Strobel board (similar to other EVA boards) to allow the midsole and upper to fit together a bit better. Since the fit elements are distributed between both the upper and the midsole, rather than all in the upper as in most shoes, the shoes fit a bit differently. Generally, medium- to high-arched feet will be best served here, but since it has good volume, it can accommodate a foot that’s bit on the fuller side, as well. A hollow space under heel gives the ride both a more responsive and stable feel. The tread has a grippy traction, the large zigzag lugs flexing well with the sole. For its performance, fit, and innovation, the Transistor FS earned our Best Trail Shoe award.

  • PERFORMANCE TRAIL
