TRE: Brooks 2024 Line Up – The need for speed

Brooks is always a very well received brand in running circles. Dependable, durable and comfortable. The Brooks 2024 collection looks to bring some excitement.

Brooks – A passion for running

With the belief that running is a gift and that we should always run happy, Brooks ethos is to make each run a special occasion. Be it a race or a gentle jog with friends, there is a Brooks shoe for you. Obsessed with detail and design, the team tries to engineer every item to improve the running experience. This is why they are one of the best selling running brands in the whole world. Their shoes have recently graced the gold medal spot in an incredibly exciting men’s 1500m final at the Budapest World Championships. 


With that in mind, let’s take a look at their new range.
