Brooks Running has more up its sleeve than a completely new shoe (if you haven't heard, check out the Transcend), this brand has a healthy number of updated runners hitting stores next year, as well as a completely new running apparel collection inspired by their PureProject footwear. Take a look at Brooks Running's Spring 2014 Preview.
Brooks Adrenaline 14 GTS
The Adrenaline is back for the 14th time! Enhanced with a 3D Fit print and a fuller ground contact, the Adrenaline 14 GTS employs more EVA underfoot for a smooth rider from toe to heel (think of it like a caterpillar inching its way forward, but sped up). The Adrenaline will launch December 1st for $120 in 2 colorways with 2 more to release later in the year.
The latest cushioned shoe from Brooks Running is set to take smooth rides to the next level, featuring more EVA on the outsole for more ground contact. Check out the unveil of this brand new model here.
This is a very popular shoe right now for Brooks Running, as the Ravenna is up 40% in sales. For a younger, faster crowd the Ravenna has been upgraded with a no-sew upper that employs a TPU film for structure without added weight as this model focused more on the fit of the shoe than its predecessors. The medial saddle hugs the foot to bring the center of pressure back to the middle of the foot with a blended BioMoGo midsole. The Ravenna releases January 1st for $110.
Brooks Cascadia 9
The ninth generation of Brooks popular trail shoe got a dramatic design update, using a more aggressive cage-like support system and a 10mm offset change from heel to toe. Built for the trail with rock lugs and a water in / water out construction, this hydrophobic runner will debut February 2nd for $120.
Brooks Running PureProject 3 Collection
The Cadence, Connect and Flow 3 doesn't boast a dramatic change like what we saw from the first to second generation. Still using a "burrito-wrap" style upper, the direction of the "wrap" has changed to that the larger piece meets on the medial side for a better fit. The Nav band has switched from a stretch knit material to silicone, and the toe flex has moved from splitting up the first and second toe to center between the 2nd and 3rd digits for a more centered stride.
The Connect ($100) and Cadence ($120)will be available December 1, while the Flow ($100) will be available January 1.
Brooks Running PureProject Apparel for Men and Women
Set to release in the spring of next year, the PureProject performance apparel line is like the rest of Brooks softgoods with a focus on function and a knack for finding the small details that make a big difference for runners but with just a touch of street cred. Featuring subtle strands of reflective materials for enhanced visibility, a beyond-4-way-stretch thanks to the DNA adaptive technology, and some badass prints, Brooks Running is making major moves with the upcoming spring product lineup. Now if only we can get some matching shoes...
