Running in the rain, snow, sleet, slop, and slush can get pretty cold and pretty old, so Brooks designed the Adrenaline ASR 11 GTX Men's Trail Running Show to keep your toes dry and comfortable when the going's less than totally pleasant. By incorporating a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane into the synthetic upper, Brooks ensured that you'll never have to take a rain check on your run again. Of course, the Adrenaline also sports plenty of Brooks' other feet-pleasing designs like a cush anatomical DNA midsole, moderate cushioning, and 12mm drop, all based on a grippy rubber sole that won't make running down slippery trails feel like you're skating on ice.
