The Brooks Transcend 3 is the premium stability model from Seattle's brand for those runners looking for overpronation support (no medial post!), luxurious materials and plenty of cushioning. With 8 mm drop and Guide Rails™ instead of typical medial post for a more natural running it is a great choice for long distances with outstanding comfort level.
Current edition features a simplified upper compared to its predecessor the Transcend 2. It keeps the dual layer structure for great breathability with the external (laser-cut) one improving moisture management. Heel counter has also been redesigned to enhance stability from rear area keeping both heel collar and tongue plenty of padding for superior comfort.
Cushioning does not change in Transcend 3 with reliable midsole material "Super DNA". It provides an enjoyable soft feel (softer than Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 but not as much as the superlative Saucony Hurricane ISO 2) adapting to each stride taken while ensuring plush comfort and shock absorption. Pronation control relies on melded Guide Rails™ allowing the complete body to align and outsole disperses pressure (through Ideal Pressure Zones) evenly in the heel for smoother ride.
