Thank you for that info, I was wondering when they were planning on releasing them. I have the 6's right now, but they have around 1000 miles on them so I am going to need a new pair. I guess I'll just wait for the 7's!

Yeah it says it's supposed to release tomorrow. I bought the 5's and hated them and switched to Sportiva shoes. As soon as the 7's are available, I'm going to try them out though. Possibly rekindle my love of Brooks. Haha.

Ya I cant wait, I do like the 6's but I'm sure that the 7's will be a very necessary upgrade. Although I have to say my 6's have held up extremely well for how many miles I have put on them and the activities I use them in.
