Brooks Running Company is launching a new National Parks Collection of footwear and apparel at REI to celebrate the parks that runners love to explore, and to inspire them to get out and enjoy outdoor spaces.
The Brooks National Parks Collection goes on sale beginning Aug. 1 in stores and online at REI.com; footwear will retail for $130 and shirts for $34. As part of Brooks’ ongoing investment into the places where people run, the company is donating 5 percent of the wholesale cost of every National Parks Collection pair of shoes and T-shirt purchased to the National Park Foundation to help support its mission, aiming to conserve outdoor spaces for use and enjoyment today and for future generations.
The Brooks National Parks Collection includes a series of limited-edition Cascadia 12 trail running shoes and Brooks technical running shirts that celebrate national parks across the U.S. Each shoe is stamped with its own unique national park crest and is designed in colors representative of the park. Accompanying shirts feature one-of-a-kind designs that are inspired by the park they celebrate.
The collections parks and designs include:
Mt. Rainier National Park which uses gray and blue tones that are iconic to the northwest mountain;
Yosemite National Park is brought to life by deep blues and bright greens—colors often seen near the streams and creeks of the park;
Great Smoky Mountains National Park represented through deep reds and oranges often seen against the mountains at sunset;
And Yellowstone National Park, paid tribute to by vivid colors drawn from the park’s awe-inspiring hot springs.
The collection also includes a shoe and shirt dedicated to all National Parks and is inspired by the look and feel of park ranger uniforms.
