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 a product replacement request and we will evaluate the problem and find a solution.
