The Brooks Story

 

THE BROOKS STORY

 

 

BROOKS: RUN HAPPY

At Brooks, running is all they do.  They run happy, run with tech, run with innovation, and run to get every runner a better shoe.

They believe (and so do we!) that a run can flat out change a day, a life, the world! Because the run is a giver. It’s like the greatest relationship ever. And all it ever asks for in return is a little sweat equity.

It imparts clarity. Me-time. Euphoria. Smoking glutes. A longer life span. Everything. Problems THIS BIG, turn this big. So even though Brooks is a running company, the most important thing they make isn’t a shoe. The most important thing they make is your run.

Our advice is simple: Live the way you run. Run happy.

EXPLORE BROOKS

Lead by their scientific research, Brooks designs shoes based the way the body naturally runs. Then they help each runner decide how they want to experience their run. It’s a simple yet powerful combo that makes for enjoyable runs every time you lace up. They created four Run Signature categories based on the run experience you want to have – whether you like it soft, springy, flexible, or fast, we have your shoe.

CUSHION Soft and Protective to Cushion your Every Step.
ENERGIZE Responsive and Springy to add Extra Lift to your Stride.
CONNECT Lightweight and Flexible to Naturally Feel your Run.
SPEED Fast and Streamlined to Propel you through your Run.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A SPORTS BRA MAKES

Brooks are one of the nation’s masters – or should that be mistresses – of the sports bra arena. They know there’s more to a sports bra than high, medium, and low impact – straps makes a difference, adjustability makes a difference, lower bands make a difference. Add on to that design also makes a mental difference to how a woman performs when she’s got the support she needs.

As women runners, we all experience support and comfort differently. With that truth in mind, Brooks are leading the support journey by creating a wide collection of sports bras that offer the best possible range of fit and performance.

Dependent on your primary activity and with a wide range of features of styles, it’s now possible for every woman to find the right support for them, rather than buying and hoping it’ll work, or the dreaded doubling up on bras just to make them work.

No matter your size or activity, there’s a Brooks sports bra for you.

KEY BROOKS RUNNING SHOES

THE CLASSIC: BROOKS GHOST 10

A classic in the Brooks’ running shoe collection the Ghost 10 is a neutral running shoe that can take a beating as you beat the paths and roads to the finish line.  It delivers comfort with a great grip; a solid reason people keep returning time and time again to choose the Ghost. A go-to shoe for so many runners, isn’t it time you tried this phantom menace?

I've been wearing the Ghost since the original.  Always like to slip on other brands every few years to try but I tend to stick with what I know and like.

Gregory M

Shoe has a great fit for me when taking into account my orthotics.  No leg soreness following a run of any length.  Wider toe box and relatively high heel – toe drop helps me also.

Lawrence K

THE NEW: BROOKS LEVITATE

A new neutral running shoe in the Brooks line-up, the Levitate is a daily trainer featuring a new midsole from Brooks (DNA AMP midsole, for those who need to know). The goal of the Levitate is endless energy; and Brooks have delivered.  The ‘springiness; of the show is impactful; read our gear testers review to get the complete scoop on this sharp looking shoe.

Levitate is the ultimate in comfort and performance! When you step into the shoe for the first time you do not want to take it off. The footbed offers soft support and cushion while still giving you energy return. You are comfortable but still feel like you are propelling forward with spring in your step. This is like no there product I have tried. A new ride from a great brand. Also a great option to wear off the run for traveling and walking days. Feels fantastic on your foot.

Kirsten B

The fit-knit upper has a natural feeling stretch that is more forgiving, lighter, and breathable. Very 'runnable!

The Saucony Story

 

 

HERE'S WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT RUNNING.

It's a pair of shoes, and everything else is up to you.

You decide to get up, how hard to push, and when you've had enough. No one makes you do it, and no one cares if you don't. But you get up and go for it anyway! That's how it is with running, that's how it is in life. You decide to try something, to be something, to make the world just a little bit closer to how you want it to be. It's your call. But either way, you're getting up tomorrow. The good news? What you're getting up for is entirely up to you.

 

 

Everun

 

 

In 2015 Saucony introduced EVERUN continuous cushioning into their footwear line. A breakthrough in footwear design, Saucony used a topsole construction to place the cushioning closer to the foot than ever before. This allows runners to reap more benefits from the cushioning, such as more energy return and to reduce pressure on the body through the runner’s stride. EVERUN adapts to your foot in motion. More comfort, less stress- allowing you to run stronger, longer.

 

 

Liberty ISO

 

 

FREE TO GO FARTHER.


Experience the ultimate in lively cushioning with the Liberty ISO. Featuring full-length EVERUNTM, your run starts amazing and stays amazing, while ISO-Fit lacing offers a custom feel. The Liberty performs just like our award winning Freedom ISO, but with added medial support for runners who need just a little more stability.

 

 

Guide ISO

 

 

STOP STOPPING.


The all-new Guide ISO with EVERUN, made so you can always keep going.

The award-winning Guie has been setting the pace for stability shoes over the past decade. Now, the Guide ISO raises the bar again with ISO-Fit, offering a sleeker design and more custom feel. Medial support effortlessly guides your foot through every stride, while EVERUN provides plush landings and springy take-offs.

 

 

Triumph ISO 4

 

 

FORGET THE SHOE.


The Triumph ISO 4 with EVERUN offers the pinnacle in running comfot. Once you lace it up, you may never notice it again.

The Triumph ISO 4 is a truly luxurious running experience. An EVERUN topsole and EVERUN midsole combine for incredibly cush landings, reducing friction and pressure points, while still providing springy take-offs. Redesigned ISO-Fit with more stretch allows you to dial in the fit, and an engineered mesh upper wraps the foot. Try it on and you’ll say WHOA.

Salomon Speedcross 4 – Staff Review

 

 

 

Tech Specs

This past June, Salomon launched their latest update to their fleet, the Speedcross 4. Runners and hikers familiar with Salomon and the Speedcross line have come to love this shoe for what it is, a technical trail shoe that begs to play in the mud and steep stuff.


 

Snug like a glove fit. The open toebox allows my foot to expand and/or push forward on the downhill, but isn't so loosey goosey it feels void of support. Mudguard material surrounding entire base of shoe not only protects from mud, dirt, snow, but shields against rocks crashing in to my forefoot upon impact with trail. The new sole design maintains classic grip I’ve come to LOVE and EXPECT from the Speedcross style. It's not my every day trail shoe, I need more cushioning; days I know there will be rocky terrain and some scrambling, this baby performs.


 


 

There’s so many things to like about this shoe, so I’ll focus my comments on the top three that stand out in my mind.

Quicklace System – I look for this technology in every shoe I pick up. It really works! When I run trails, I want my shoe to stay snug on my feet. Any movement in my shoe and I get nervous that I will roll my ankle on the next rock bed.

Contragrip – The lugs on the Speedcross 4 work in any environment or trail condition you may run in. Although, these wouldn’t be my first choice on a hard packed smooth trail system. Soft, technical trails with obstacles is where the Speedcross 4 excels, and you really want it to in these types of conditions.

Gore-Tex Upper – These shoes shed everything you throw at it, it’s truly amazing. I found myself running through mud puddles like an adolescent school child without a care in the world. My feet never felt heavy and there was still no movement in the shoe even after getting wet.
