Brooks, the Seattle, USA-based maker of running shoes is finally in India. The iconic brand has cemented its status as the go-to running shoe maker, thanks largely to its single-minded focus on producing the best running shoes available right now, as well as its 105-year legacy in quality shoe-making. A subsidiary of the Warren Buffett-owned Berkshire Hathaway, Brooks has worked extensively on shoe design, incorporating smart technologies that ensure that you get the right fit and function on every run. While Brooks is known for its BioMoGo DNA technology, in 2017 it introduced DNA AMP. This is the brand’s most responsive midsole, which channels more energy to the runner than any other shoe. And in 2018, Brooks unveiled its DNA LOFT and GuideRails 2.0 technologies, which cushion the midsole and provide maximum support on the hops, knees and joints respectively. Ready for a superior running experience?

What to Keep in Mind While Buying Your Brooks Running Shoes

  • When it comes to fit, you might need to pick a pair of shoes that are half a size larger – this is because your feet widen and lengthen when they make contact with the ground (they return to normal in mid-air).
  • Even if you’ve purchased them online, try your shoes on at the end of the day. Your feet swell by the end of the day, and are at their largest. This makes it the best time to test the fit. Also note that there should be at least half a thumb length of wiggle room around the toes.
  • Wear the socks you’ll be running in to make sure your shoes fit comfortably.
  • Since both feet are never exactly the same size, make sure your running shoe fits the bigger foot comfortably.
