Brooks didn't always make running shoes.
The Seattle-based company started out making ballet slippers before turning to baseball, football and softball cleats. But when running took off in the 1970s, so did Brooks.
What started with the Villanova and Vantage in the '70s turned into names like Beast and Adrenaline GTS in the 1990s. Then, in 2001, Brooks made the call to focus solely on their biggest strength: running.
Today, Brooks makes running gear—and only running gear. The Brooks Adrenaline is still one of the most popular running shoes on the market, but shoes like the Brooks Ghost and Brooks Glycerin have joined the ranks.
With its sole focus on designing the best running shoes and apparel, Brooks pores over the details to make sure its products stack up. Lace up a pair of Brooks running shoes, and you'll be running happy in no time.
