Brooks Chariot Heritage History
Taking inspiration from the Brooks Chariot released in 1982, the Brooks Chariot Heritage is an homage to the biggest selling trainer shoes of the brand and probably the most worn running shoes by runners in the 1980s.
The Brooks Chariot has been praised in running magazines that include Running Times, Runner’s World and Triathlon for its overall stability and support. In the July 1985 issue, Runner’s World survey of their subscribers showed that more men and women run in the Brooks Chariot than any other running shoe.
In time for their 100-year anniversary, the Brooks Heritage line has been introduced in 2015. As soon as Brooks announced this to the public, they began unarchiving two of its popular shoes in the 1970s that include award winning performance runners the Vanguard and the Vantage. Soon other archived shoes of Brooks were released including the Brooks Chariot and basketball shoe Unique.
The Brooks Chariot Heritage line pays tribute to the original design of the Chariot but veers away from being a performance shoe and instead focused on being a retro fashion sneaker for daily wear.
Shane Downey, Creative Director and Business Manager for the Brooks Heritage Collection said that during their research they came across the most famous shoe in their archives which he calls as the “Crown Jewel” of their Heritage line collection: The Brooks Chariot.
Brooks Chariot Heritage Style
When it comes to style, the Brooks Chariot Heritage retained its original looks in the 1980s giving the shoe a classic retro vibe including the use of the same features as its origins. The majority of its users are those who love its vintage look but does not compromise the comfort.
Most sneaker fans wear them for everyday casual walks in the park, in the mall and even at work. The suede material for the upper also give it a feel good look and the leather chevron logo in colorways inspired by leading US schools and teams in the 1980s are still fashionable and in tune with the current trends.
Fit & Sizing
As in its classic origins, the Brooks Chariot Heritage is available in both Men’s and Women’s sizes. Men’s sizes range from US size 7 to 14 while Women’s sizes range from US size 6 to 11. Available width for the Men’s and Women’s shoes are D and B - medium.

Among its notable features include the molded tri-layer insole for cushioning and solid rubber outsole for shock absorption.

The shoe designers also retained reflective hits for visibility even during night runs.
