Today, our running team In Kashiwa had an event sponsored by Brooks, Runx staff did PR for Brooks shoes and we could try on any shoe we wanted!

BTW, of course they mentioned the Green Silence, one more reason to like them to be our sponsor for the Eco-Marathon!
That wraps it up, thanks mate!
A history lesson. So pay attention!
In 1985 Brooks introduced the Chariot which incorporated the rollbar in the medial side of of the mid sole to combat pronation and was thus the shoe that catered for pronators. Although discontinued I still see the a varient of it in Japan for walkers.
In about 1988-89 they brought out their hydroflow system which was located in the heel of several of their shoes. Resembling a spirit level, it was basically a cushioning fluid ( don't ask me about the scientific theories behind it as I've been out of the shoe retail buisiness for nearly 20 years)) that responded according to the runner's foot strike.
The thing they have now is concept of enviromentally friendly shoes. The person that's standing in the photo is wearing the Green Silence which is a racer constructed of recyled materials ( Could be a good shoe for you Juergen)
So Brooks have very much been at the forefront of running shoe design for many years. And fine shoes they've been producing too.
Good...we are back in Feb.
Well, I hope we can secure a pair of shoes for Jordan! I found an old pair of pants in my closet, I got it about 20 years ago, and yes, my German Club's kit was - Brooks!
I work at a specialist running shoe shop in Derby, the brooks adrenaline is still a very popular show in England as far as I am aware, more so with experienced runners. New comers have rarely heard of the brand and so this actually puts them off when comparing against more established brands within the wider market such as Aasics and Nike...I am looking forward to getting involved in these events!
Great...my size is 27.5 Cm !!! :-)
