• Find the Best Running Shoes for You + GIVEAWAY

    March 7, 2016

    Hey, hey!

    Are you in the market for a new pair of running shoes, but don’t know what to buy? Well, Brooks can help with their online Shoe Finder. It works like magic, but it’s rooted in the best running science to date. Stride Signature is the new idea that there is no right or wrong way to run, except your own unique way of running. Based on Brooks’ own scientific research, they assess the way each body naturally runs. Then, you choose how you want to experience your run—whether it’s soft, springy, flexible, or fast. This combination makes for the most comfortable and personalized running experience ever. Basically, Brooks has made it easier for all of us to find our favorite shoe!

    Brooks Running

    I recently tried the Shoe Finder myself, and it recommended the shoe that I am currently wearing (Launch 3) with the Glycerin 13 (my other favorite) as a secondary suggestion. Nailed it. The questions in the Shoe Finder are so unique– many of which I had never been asked related to running– so it was really cool to see that it was spot on with my preferences.



    Giveaway time! One lucky CNC reader will win their choice of Brooks Running shoes!

    To enter: Try out the Shoe Finder and leave a comment with your results. I’ll randomly pick a winner later this week to win a pair of Brooks of their choice! Good luck!

    I got the launch 3!!!!


    Amanda Reynolds March 10, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    I got the Glycerin 13!


    Sam March 10, 2016 at 8:46 pm

    I got the glycerin!!! It’s always hard for me because I’m a narrow foot so my options are limited..


    Victoria March 10, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    I got the ConnectMe Women’s PureFlow 5. I’ve never tried any of their shoes, so I wouldn’t know. If I got those ones I would definitely choose the pink version.


    Sarah Pitman March 10, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    Yay! The Launch 3!!! Energize Me 🙂


    Kathryn March 10, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    launch 3!


    Sarah Fo fo March 10, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    Glycerin 13!!

    My sides of my feet have been killing me (I think I pronate outward…if that’s the correct term!?) I know I am in the need of a better running shoe. It is sad when foot pain shortens your run, even when you have fuel left in the ol running tank!

    Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂


    Rachel March 10, 2016 at 9:37 pm

    Glycerin 13! Would love to try them out 🙂


    Mary March 10, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    I got the Launch 3. I am a Brooks girl, so I am excited to try this show!


    Sara March 11, 2016 at 6:49 am

    Ravena 7, which is interesting as I always go to a running store to get fit and I’ve been wearing the ghost shoes for awhile. The ghost 8 s didn’t fit me well so I’m actually in ascics right now, I’ll have to ask about these when I go shopping next time.


    Nicole March 11, 2016 at 8:39 am

    I got the PureFlow 5! This is pretty neat


    Nicole Z March 11, 2016 at 9:27 am

    Pureflow 5, definitely need new workout shoes!


    Janice March 11, 2016 at 11:50 am

    I got the Glycerin 13 shoes.


    Kristin March 11, 2016 at 12:07 pm


    I like the shoe finder. I am interested in trying out the recommended shoes, Women’s PureFlow 5, because I usually run in a different Brooks shoe.


    Debbie F March 11, 2016 at 4:03 pm

    I got the Women’s Launch 3 – and they’re so pretty. 🙂
    well, for me, I’m not a pink or purple kinda girl so I love the darker color!

    Also, that was an interesting test – it’s interesting to know you being able to bend your finger indicates what kind of shoe you should be running in. 🙂


    Jennifer S March 11, 2016 at 7:44 pm

    I got the Launch 3! Love the colors it comes in.


    Laurel E March 11, 2016 at 7:58 pm



    Dalit March 12, 2016 at 9:04 am

    Pure Flows! (which I love, haha!)


    Andrew Firth March 13, 2016 at 12:07 am

    Great Tool, cameo utility with the Men’s Adrenaline GTS16 for me.


    Pam March 13, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    I absolutely LOVE Brooks and thanks for offering the giveaway. I was suggested the Glycerins which thankfully I have been wearing for years! PHEW!


    Ilana March 13, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    PureFlow 5! I have been trying to find a replacement for my previous shoe which is now discontinued and this would be a great way to try a new pair!


    Corcoran March 13, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    I got the PureFlow5…. have never tried them out but will now!


    manda March 14, 2016 at 9:42 am

    Pure flow for me!


    Ken C March 14, 2016 at 11:50 am

    The Brooks Ghosts look to be a good match for me


    Tamieka March 15, 2016 at 11:38 am



    Trenda T March 15, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    Pure Flow5 🙂


    Kristin March 15, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    I got the launch 3s – I guess I should try these out if they are saying it’s right for my feet


    Liz Borders March 25, 2016 at 2:06 am

    Brooks Ghosts! I thought this would be a good shoe for me based on what a podiatrist told me. I like the confirmation!


    Alli B March 29, 2016 at 10:54 am

    Hi Tina! I commented on this post but now I can’t find my comment and I don’t remember which shoe was recommended to me! Can you help!?


    Nicole March 29, 2016 at 8:02 pm

    PureFlow 5 – I’ve always worn the Ghost though!


    Nicole March 29, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    PureFlow 5 which I’ve never tried. I’ve always worn the Ghosts!


    Fitzy March 31, 2016 at 7:08 pm

    neuro have been wearing pureflow5


    Madeline Delaney April 5, 2016 at 4:02 pm

    Ghost, which is good because I’ve been wearing them for awhile!!


    Rosie April 6, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    I love this!!! I got Women’s Glycerin 13 SUPER SOFT!!


    Petr April 9, 2016 at 6:01 am

    MEN’S GLYCERIN 13 RUNNING SHOE – and I have to say it looks great. It fits my sprint and run for distances around 10 kilometres.


    Rebecca Dawkins April 19, 2016 at 6:53 am

    I am interested in Glycerin 13. Yes, they are really super soft.


    Nicole L May 19, 2016 at 12:13 am

    This is my first time trying out a shoe finder quiz! I got Women’s Neuro as my first suggestion and and the Unisex T7 Racer as my second. I’m so excited to try them out especially since track and field kills my shins, hip flexors, and feet arches every year!
