…a pair of Brooks T7 Special Chrissie edition. I won’t take these out with all the slop on the roads so a review will have to come later. I have been wearing them around the house barefoot and the right shoe does seem to rub along a seam on the inside. This might be a problem.
The sole seems to be unchanged from the T5, T6, to the T7. It is the upper that is different: notice the offset lacing. I can’t say whether this is better or not.
The size 11 T7s weigh 13.7 ounces. My Asics Piranha 3s weigh 9.9 ounces and my Mizuno Universe 3s weigh even less: 8.5 ounces. Still, the T7s are lighter than the T6s which weigh 14.1 ounces.
I’ve raced in the T5 and T6 over the last three years. This year I’m leaning towards the Asics Piranha.
The last includes a good luck wish from Chrissie.
