Brooks Regent History

As a celebration of a century of rich running history, Brooks released the Brooks Heritage Collection. The Collection includes their classic shoes from the past with modern innovations. With the Heritage line, the brand maintained the vintage look, solid quality and impressive comfort of the shoes to give honor to the original designs.

The Brooks Regent is one of the shoes in the Heritage Collection. It was first released as a running shoe in 1993. The remake of the shoe still has the classic look and filled with innovative technologies. The stylish plastic heel window that makes the heel cushioning visible, is still present.

Aside from reintroducing the classic colorways, Brooks Regent is also available in fresh modern color combos.
