Performance running shoes are created with only one thing in mind - the run. Designing shoes for running means designing a tread that performs better than any other when moving in a forward motion. Using our shoes for other uses, particularly those involving lateral movement, can result in tread separation earlier than the normal functional life of the shoes, which is 300-500 miles.
If you believe that a Brooks item has a defect in materials or craftsmanship that has caused the product to fail during the functional life expectation, we want to help. Please complete our Product Replacement Request and we will evaluate the problem and find a solution.
