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 on their 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 great 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.
Brooks Women's Running Shoes
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19
The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19 is the latest successor to the Go To Shoe throne.
Designers packed the Brooks Adrenaline with DNA Loft foam for a cushy but responsive ride, and the new GTS has a sleek engineered mesh upper that gives it a clean, modern look. But this time around Brooks installed its new GuideRails support technology to provide holistic support to your feet and legs.

Brooks Men's Running Shoes
Brooks Ravenna 10
Brooks' innovative Guide Rails support system uses a unique midsole construction to align your hips, knees and joints through their natural stride instead of trying to correct how you run with traditional midsole posts.
When used in the new Ravenna 10, Guide Rails provide stability and allow you to run naturally and efficiently.
Paired with Brooks' DNA foam, Guide Rails help make the Ravenna a comfortable, lightweight running shoe that will crush your training.
Brooks Running Technology
Brooks packs years of research and breakthrough technology into its running shoes, apparel and gear. Here's a look at some of their top technology:
- 3D Fit Print. The revolutionary process uses screen-print technology to build engineered structure for the upper of a shoe. 3D Fit Print maintains the shoe's structure but gives it better flexibility and a lighter weight.
- Guide Rails. Brooks' Guide Rails are a breakthrough stability technology that are built right into the midsole of the shoes instead of using traditional posts like other stability shoes. Guide Rails promote your body's preferred running motion, which alleviates the pressure of trying to force it into a set pattern. Guide Rails are used in the popular Adrenaline GTS 19.
- Segmented Crash Pad. The Crash Pad is a midsole design that uses independent, but fully integrated, shock absorbers to smooth out your ride. The segments work together to customize your landing when your foot hits the ground, making for a seamless heel-to-toe transition.
- DNA midsole foam. DNA foam adapts to the force you apply to it, so you get cushioning tailored for how you run. The Brooks Ghost 11 uses DNA Loft foam for softer landings.
- Ballistic Rock Shield. A strong, plastic sheath sandwiched between the outsole and midsole protects your foot from sharp objects on the trail, like rocks and roots. It's used in trail running shoes, such as the Brooks Cascadia 13
