Neutral. Brooks has brought the supreme fit and feel of their famous Adrenaline GTS to neutral runners with the Brooks Defyance 6. Built on the Adrenaline GTS platform, the Defyance 6 has no medial support, and has a lighter upper for improved breathability and fit.
Upper: Adjustable saddle construction for comfort. Moisture-managing Element mesh upper helps keep your feet dry and comfortable. Synthetic overlay materials for support and wrap-the-foot fit. Moisture-managing Element lining wicks moisture away from the foot. Internal support saddle. Padded tongue and heel collar.
Midsole: Anatomical Brooks DNA provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds by responding to every step, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection. Full length BioMoGo midsole provides long-lasting cushioning but has a non-toxic, natural additive that lets the shoe decompose 50 times faster once it hits the landfill. DRB Accel, a shank-like thermoplastic device, provides torsional rigidity to the midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently. Heel Caterpillar Crash Pad segmented crash pad customizes the individual's lay down with just the right amount of cushion and stabilization giving the runner a smooth heel to toe transition. Removable Profile sockliner for added comfort.
Outsole: HPR Plus higher durability, abrasion resistant rubber outsole compound wears longer than traditional outsoles. Forefoot Stable Pod is engineered to set the foot in an efficient balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum stability and responsiveness. Strategically placed Flextra rubber piece in the forefoot provides tuned flexibility. Forefoot flex grooves allow the foot to move naturally. Blown rubber forefoot for durability and traction.
