When it comes to running sneakers, Brooks is a go-to brand for the truly devoted. In business since 1914 — originally producing bathing shoes and ballet slippers — the American brand started designing running sneakers in the ’70s, and was the first label to introduce a runner with an EVA sole.
And while Brooks has not proved quite as popular as, say, Salomon or ASICS with the more fashion-conscious sneakerheads, some of the brand's latest offerings are serving up some not-to-be-sniffed-at designs in aesthetic terms, too. Below, we've selected a few Brooks sneakers that have caught our eye for more than just their technical nous in recent times.
Some of our favorite Brook sneakers right now include a pair of Ghost 11s which, as well as sporting a waterproof GORE-TEX upper perfect for rainy spring days, comes in a super wearable all-black colorway with steezy orange accents. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Brooks' Launch 5s come in a multi-colored tie-dye design that'll instantly turn heads whether you're running track or stunting on the streets.
