In celebration of the Independence Day holiday, Brooks Running this month launched its Old Glory Collection, which includes footwear and apparel designed to celebrate the Fourth of July and summer running. New designs inspired by the United States flag adorn the Launch 6, Adrenaline GTS 19 and the Pacesetter Short Sleeve, Crew Sock and Hat.
The Launch 6 (in photo, women’s model) features a new engineered, one-piece mesh upper and internal bootie for a breathable and lightweight fit. The shoe’s BioMoGo DNA midsole and rebounding rubber outsole offer a springy feel underfoot while a Midfoot Transition Zone gets the runner from heel to toe quickly. The Old Glory version of the shoe takes cues from iconic USA imagery and colors with a navy star print on the right shoe and a red stripe print on the left.
The Adrenaline GTS 19 features Brooks’ GuideRails holistic support as well as softer cushioning underfoot with a combination of new DNA Loft and BioMoGo DNA. The shoe delivers a modernized fit with engineered mesh and 3D Fit Print on the upper. Suede is used on the Brooks logo and collar lining. Red- and white-striped laces and stars on the tongue introduce American flag imagery.
In the apparel collection, the Pacesetter Short Sleeve for men and Pacesetter Tank Top for women along with the Pacesetter Hat showcase a one-of-a-kind “Stars and Strides” graphic while the Pacesetter Crew uses blue designs and red stars to celebrate the USA.
The Old Glory Launch 6 sells for $100, the Adrenaline GTS 19 for $130, the Pacesetter Short Sleeve for $34, the Pacesetter Tank Top for $34, the Pacesetter Crew Sock for $16 and the Pacesetter Hat for $76.
