I can't find any good information out there on this. I got a postcard from Road Runner Sports saying that the Brooks Infinity 2 is being discontinued - what does this mean? Is Brooks going to come out with a 3, or is the line completely going away?

I don't know for sure. One of my training partners (a fellow Brooks ID runner) trains in these so he's pretty plugged in to what's going on with them. I'll ask him. I can also ask my Brooks rep what's going on with these.

I saw my Brooks Glycerin 7s on closeout for $60 a pair online at runningwarehouse - soes that mean they're discontinuing them? And how does one find out these things in advance so one can stock up? Luckily they had 3 pair left in my size.

Kinda sorta. Unfornately, I haven't crossed paths in the last couple of weeks with my buddy Wade. He's been out of town running marathons and I've been out of town for work. I should see him this Wed though.

When we were out on a long run, he told me something about the Infiniti 2 and it's future and what may or may not be replacing it or something like that. But, I can't remember what he said.

The Infinit 2 is in the 2010 Brooks shoe catalog so you're good at least in the short term. I'll try to remember to mention it to Wade on Wed morning.

Ok, so I just decided not to wait and called Wade on the phone. He confirmed that the Infinity 2s are going to be discontinued. The Ravena is the current shoe in that category that they (Brooks) claim is similar. Also, a yet to be named shoe is scheduled to replace the Infinity 2 in the fall.
