Seattle’s Brooks Sports celebrates its 100th anniversary this year with the Heritage Collection, a reimagination of the iconic shoes that defined the running-obsessed 1970s. The two classic models, the Vanguard ($89.95) and the Vantage ($79.95), were released in March. “We’re creating a thoughtful lifestyle collection,” explains Shane Downey, designer and Brooks Heritage business manager. The modern updates are trendy (think white leather chevron stripes and mint green suede), but don’t detract from the authenticity that defined a truly righteous era.
