Happy New Year! Ever since Brooks discontinued the Green Silence last year, I’ve been looking for a shoe to replace it. I’ve tried a couple, including the New Balance 1400, Saucony Kinvara and more recently, the Altra “The One”. However, none of them really felt great on my feet – but one that did was the Altra Provision. It’s zero drop (so a bit less than Green Silences actually) with a little cushioning and also laces up nice and tight. The tongue and heel cup seem to fit my feet perfectly as well. Make sure to order a half size up from what you regularly wear though as they seem to run a bit small.
Anyways, just something to consider if you’re one of those looking to replace your old Brooks Green Silences!
