Founded in 1914 in Philadelphia, Brooks started out as a manufacturer of shoes for a broad range of sports, from ballet to baseball. Brooks began making running shoes in the 1970s and it wasn’t until the 2000s that Brooks moved away from other sports to focus on one thing only: running.
Singular in their pursuit since the turn of the millennium, Brooks has developed into a brand that’s known and loved for helping runners to ‘Run Happy’. A mantra that goes against the grain of competitive, faster, further – to celebrate the joy of running and champion diversity and inclusivity in the running community.
Brooks’ signature shoe cushioning technologies include DNA Loft, Brooks softest midsole material and DNA Amp, Brooks springiest midsole material. With their new nitrogen-infused DNA Loft v3 foam (found in the Glycerin franchise), Brooks were able to develop something that’s softer, lighter and more responsive - delivering on all fronts.
The GTS or ‘Go To Support’ models in the Brooks range offer additional stability through the use of GuideRails technology. GuideRails is a holistic support system that allows your body to embrace its natural motion path while limiting excess motion.
The care and attention devoted to running shoe development carries across to all other Brooks products. Brooks clothing and Brooks run bras are made with distraction-free comfort in mind, using fabrics and technologies which are chafe free, creep free and constriction free – to keep you moving in comfort. The Brooks Run Visible collection is a family of high-contrast reflective gear that makes it easier for drivers to see you when you are running in the dark.
Brooks stand behind their products and want to make sure you have what you need to Run Happy! Under the Brooks Run Happy Promise, you can take your Brooks gear for a 90-day test run and if you are not 100% satisfied, you can return it to us for free.
