The Transcend has middle-of-the-road cushioning—not too soft that I feel like I’m wearing bedroom slippers, and not too firm that I feel every crack and pebble beneath my foot,” said associate test director Jen Sherry. The seventh iteration weighs less than the previous model, and yet its midsole is much softer due to Brooks tinkering with the DNA Loft foam to increase comfort and support. It can be thought of as paired to the neutral Launch whereas Transcend is paired to Glycerin and Adrenaline to Ghost. Two most similar shoes as they share a DNA Loft midsole and similar fit, the Glycerin is purely neutral, while the Transcend brings stability to the table. Just like the namesake, it's there to assist the foot through that transition and hopefully reduce the impact of overpronation for that runner.

The midsole is composed of Brooks’ DNA Loft foam; for the unfamiliar, it’s EVA with air injected into it for a softer feel. While we're talking comparisons, the Glycerin GTS 19 and the Glycerin 19 are on the exact same stack height as well with a 10mm heel-to-toe drop. Another tester, who is a self-described pavement pounder, said the shoe “had great push off and was equal to or better than my Adrenalines.No irritation to be found, but you may want to size down in this shoe if you want more lockdown, because it is roomy to say the least. As a neutral runner, I didn’t feel any extra elements to the shoe compared to the Glycerin 18 for the majority of my runs - in the 4-6 mile range.

Brooks seems to agree as all GuideRails going forward Transcend 7, Adrenaline GTS 20, and upcoming Ravenna 11 are reworked. As knees are seen as key, the idea is to limit excess heel and shin rotation to keep your natural knee motion within a safe range thus hopefully allowing less pain and discomfort while also better aligning the gait in a forward path. The reconfigured midsole and outsole ratio allows an increase in DNA LOFT for even more extreme softness underfoot without losing responsiveness or durability on your run. It's not overly intrusive which is great because the thickness of memory foam around the internal heel collar is just about perfect. The Transcend can be that everyday workhorse or long run trainer you need, its DNA Loft cushioning providing a softer ride for your legs.We're talking about the runner that makes contact on the entry point and as they transition through to midstance, there might be a little bit of bias towards that medial side, resulting in mild overpronation as you get ready to come out of your gait cycle.
