Brooks Levitate Review
The Brooks Levitate is a new shoe with new mid sole technology that has one of the most comfortable uppers that I have ever tried though can run narrow in the mid foot arch area. It rolls very well through the gait cycle with an 8mm offset and is an interesting new shoe from Brooks. The Levitate is a great shoe for new and casual runners who stick to distances around 3-10KM with perhaps an occasional longer run up to the half-marathon distance.
The biggest issue is that the Brooks Levitate is a heavier than average shoe and is limited by it, 13.35oz in a size 11.5. While the weight isn't felt dramaticly on shorter faster runs longer slower efforts may become tedious and uncomfortable. The DNA AMP mid sole does absorb shock and provide some extra energy return but particulary at larger sizes the weight is an issue.
