If neutral shoes are sedans and stability shoes are SUVs, then the Infiniti is a minivan. It’s part of Brooks’s new “guidance” line of shoes, which are designed to be a bit less structured than stability shoes but not quite as minimalist as trainers. To wit: The Infiniti boasts a luxuriously soft impact area in the heel, while a stiffer block of foam in the midfoot stabilizes the foot through the toe-off phase. A blend of three motion-channeling foams in the forefoot translates to a smooth-rolling feel, so step it up: The midsole and outsole are built to endure up to 400 miles, making the Infiniti a reliable choice for high-mileage training. 11.5 oz; brooksrunning.com
