It has been more than a hundred years since Brooks Sports, Inc. was founded in 1914.Yet it’s still there in the market even now. While being one of the best running shoes manufacturer of the world and while delivering to more than 60 countries of the world, it wasn’t always running shoes that formed its way to success. 

Before the First World War., Brooks started as a small factory for ballet slippers and shoes for bathing in the US, in Philadelphia. Later on, it became famous for the production of one of the first models of roller skates (in 1929). Over the years, it was extending its sports apparel portfolio to other different kinds of shoes categories. Such as baseball, football and for basketball players. 

But running shoes by Brooks came much later, in 1972. Since the Olympics in Munich in 1972, Brooks’s started specialising in running more and more. Since Millenium, it has been just running shoes that the company devoted its time and technology to. It has overtaken the running-shoes standard material by applying EVA midsole first and developed its own midsole cushioning BioMoGo in 2007.

 But it wasn’t always easy for Brooks. In 2001, it was on the edge of bankruptcy. After the CEO Jim Weber made cuts to its low-cost shoe models and focused with engineers on developing the highest performance running shoes, the situation recuperated. Thus, Brooks has been serving the best running shoes and belongs to the real elite until now.

Brooks Ghost 13 Review

Brooks Ghost 13 Review

Running every day requires high-quality midsole cushioning and durable outsoles for many kilometers waiting ahead. The latest release of the Brooks Ghost series, Brooks Ghost 13, are a big proof that shoes like that really exist. They are the real deal for long distance running in many aspects. And similar to Adidas Ultraboost 20, Asics Novablast or Nike Zoom Fly 3, they belong absolutely between the TOP running models that I have ever tried and that you might like as…

Brooks Revel 3 Shoes Review

Brooks Revel 3 Shoes Review

When I started running three years ago, I wanted running shoes that would be great and plus, that would be also really fancy. So I got the Swiss ON Cloudswift shoes and I loved them for one specific thing. Their design… It is very decent, elegant I would call it even unobtrusive. But the issue on the appearance of those shoes was the dominantly looking outsoles. When I searched half a year ago for new running shoes again and I…

Brooks Glycerin 17 Expert Review

I like to write reviews about running shoes. But even more than that, what I do like is to write reviews about great running shoes. If you pronounce Brooks Glycerin 17 (actually any other Brooks shoes) that’s what I immediately imagine as a premium quality shoe for running. I had the chance in the past to try Brooks Ghost 11 (for more specifications about Brooks Ghost 11 check here) and also, a model from the Glycerin series, the older version…

Brooks Levitate 2 Review

Brooks Levitate 2 debuted on the market in summer 2018 as a running shoe helping to reach top speed and saving your knees with extremely well-made cushioning.

Therefore, we did some testing on 60 miles in total under…

Brooks Ghost 12 Review

Brooks Ghost 12 Review

If you are a demanding, long-distance runner that requires a really high portion of cushioning and good support for your feet, then Brooks Ghost 12 should definitely belong to your running arsenal.  I had my first experience with Brooks with the previous version Ghost 11 and tried this updated version just recently. And, without a doubt, to buy them, it was a very good decision in the end. Where did they surprise me? Most interestingly, it was not even the…

Brooks Glycerin 13 Review

Brooks Glycerin 13 Review

Brooks Glycerin 13 will offer you an ideal combination of comfort and protection for your legs at the same time. That´s what I mostly heard before trying these shoes from the company. Well, I must say, it was a nice surprise for me as I am more a fan of Nike. Unfortunately, they make their shoes mostly very narrow. At least for me. But in this case, of Brooks Glycerin 13, the opposite is the truth. Quite a wide cut…
