Best extremely durable Brooks shoes for Men

The Seattle-based Brooks is the number one selling shoe brand in running stores. This is because the running-only Brooks has stayed innovative while remaining true to the foundational success of its top styles, such as the Adrenaline, Ghost, and Glycerin. When a new runner wants their first running shoe, Brooks is often the perfect entry shoe since its award winning styles can fit almost any stride. And for the long time runner who has worn Brooks for years, there's no reason to try another shoe since the brand works great mile after mile.

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.
