For a deluxe ride from heel to toe, look no further than the Trance™ 11. Souped-up with the latest and greatest from Brooks, this shoe delivers total plushness in an incredibly tailored package. A full-length caterpillar crash pad with independent yet integrated segments provides an exceptionally smooth laydown and a foam constructed saddle conforms to the foot for a custom fit. We took the Trance and we turned it up to eleven.
Runner's World named the Trance 11 their Editor's Choice in the Spring Shoe Guide in their March 2012 issue. 26 out of 29 wear testers rated the Trance above average or better, including one who gushed "I felt as if I were running on clouds." Float on!
BioMogo: Among our proudest achievements is the creation of the BioMogo midsole, one of the sporting goods industry's most exciting environmental innovations ever. Traditional midsolesmade of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate™ (EVA) are one of the least biodegradable shoe components, lasting up to 1,000 years in a landfill. We added a non-toxic, natural additive to our MoGo compound that encourages anaerobic microbes to munch away once the material hits an active, enclosed landfill. A five-year study found that BioMoGo degrades 50 times faster than the standard midsole in anaerobic conditions, and will save 29.9 million pounds of landfill waste in roughly 20 to 25 years. BioMoGo made its debut in the Trance 8 in 2009, and by 2010, was available in most of our men's and women's performance running shoes. BioMoGo technology represents valuable intellectual property resulting from major investment of resources, yet Brooks decided at the outset to treat this advancement as an "open source" innovation.
Brooks DNA: Provides custom cushioning for runners of all types and sizes. Engineered from what's called a non-Newtonian liquid, this midsole technology responds to the amount of force placed on the foot and disperses the pressure, providing just the right amount of resiliency. Simply put, you can expect soft comfort when you want it, firm support when you need it.
