Quick question : how do the shoes above compare with regard to the amount of support they provide? Any experience from runners who own both?

Hi Greg

The shoes will give you two completely different feels and rides, and the quick answer to your question is that the Adrenalibe will offer you more support. The Kayano is softer, smoother, lighter and for some people the perfect shoe. The amount of support is moderate. The Brooks shoe is definitely firmer and stiffer and subsequently offers more support. The Kayano is a joy to wear staright from the box, the Adrenaline needs a little running in, but is worth the wait.

Hope that helps.
Thanks Nick, yes it does help a lot.

I own a pair of Adrenaline and I agree with your comments - they are a bit stiff but they are a fantastic shoe, I love them. However I'd like to find a second pair, probably with slightly more support, but without going motion-control. I have 2 very different feet pronation-wise : 1 pronates very slightly, the other one pronates quite a lot and I'd like to see if there is a shoe which would support it
- without making the other one supinate
- without needing orthotics

I will visit a shop next week (prob will be a Sweatshop as I'm round Teddington-way) but wouldn't mind being able to look up a few models beforehand.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
