BrooksWith award-winning technology, Brooks makes the road to fitness fun and comfortable. That's why Brooks shoes are favorites for everyone from power walkers and joggers to avid runners and marathoners.
Brooks has always focused on fitness, and it shows. Established in 1914 in Philadelphia, this front-running brand started innovating arch support in 1930 and never stopped. Brooks was an early adopter of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate), now an industry-standard material for shock absorption, and in 1975 became the first brand to manufacture midsoles with it. You can also thank this athletic label for inventing the first running shoes that provided over-pronation support, finally giving flat-footed folks happy feet. The orthopedic innovation won them a top award from Runner's World, but it wouldn't be the last award from the famed magazine — the Brooks Adrenaline GTS running shoes collection alone has won more than a few over the years.
These days, Brooks' lineup of performance pairs is popular for its high-tech, adaptive DNA cushioning and fabrics that make for exceptionally lightweight, breathable, flexible, and comfortable running shoes and walking shoes. They'll not only feel custom-made for your one-of-a-kind feet — they'll actively react to your body temperature and motion, improving durability and mobility. Guide rails built into the midsoles add extra balance and support for your unique shape, allowing a more natural stride for your body to help minimize your own wear and tear. Add in 3D-printed uppers, rounded heels, and state-of-the-art tread with 3D hex lugs, and you've got a truly smooth ride.
But you don't have to be born to run to appreciate Brooks. If scenic strolls are more your speed, you'll love the cozy Addiction Walkers. Just love colorful, sporty sneakers? Their Addiction running shoes or Ariel styles are also pack leaders in athletic looks. So no matter how serious or casual your exercise goals are, Brooks running shoes are sure to please.
