Customer Creates Alternative ST Racer Colors

ST Racer 5 Minimalist Unisex Shoe

Jeff Sheinkopf is a Brooks customer and graphic designer from New York City who regularly runs 100 miles a week. Between hitting the road in Ravennas and taking to the NY trails in Cascadias , Jeff mocked-up some alternative color schemes for the Brooks Racer ST 5 and tweeted them last week.

Thanks Jeff! We’ll share your feedback with our footwear team!

What do you think? Which of customer Jeff Sheinkopf’s Photoshop designs of the Racer ST 5 do you like most?

    I like the first design (black blue yellow), 2nd (red black with grey) and the 2nd to last (black & blue with grey) for sure.

  • Michael Robertson

    I’ll take the mostly grey ones with red and the dark blue ones!

  • JD Lavallee

    I would love to see the second from top (red/black) and second from bottom (blue/black) released as the next men’s colors! Great designs!

  • Steve

    I really like the original — but the last one is my favorite of the alternate designs

  • http://www.RunnerGirl.com Rae Ann

    Love the 2nd from bottom – royal blue with gray & black!

  • Eric T

    Second one please!

  • heather

    the 2nd, 4th and 5th designs are great! I hope Brooks can put new colors out soon. I love my orange and blue racers but new colors would be nice!

  • Anna

    4th and 6th from the top are my favorites… but i’m loving the original blue and orange!

  • Anna

    PS you guys should use some of these color schemes for the adrenalines!

    I have the original blue and orange and love them. but if i had to pick a new color, it’d be the last pair. great shoe, by the way!!

  • Michael

    I LOVE my new ST5s with the orange and blue. As to those designs…well, I like the first one and the last one. Those in between the first and last are…zzzzzz…oh, excuse me! I fell asleep looking at them because they are boring!

    Thanks all! This is great feedback.

  • Alex S

    2nd from the bottom!! looks killer

  • timdp

    If it ain’t broke. Don’t fix it. Orange FTW. They go so FAST.

    I REALLY like the third from the top, the grey, blue and yellow. Hot!

  • ruth

    they are really cool… BUT there really needs to be a HOT PINK option!!!

  • Chris

    I really dig the first two, blue/yellow and the black/red.

  • anne

    I don’t like all the black – it makes the shoe look heavy. I want my shoes to look light and flat. That being said, I’d take the yellow midsole and pair it with the blue mesh and add a yellow logo.

  • john arredondo

    the 2nd ones rock!

  • Alex

    I would definately buy the second from the top (red upper w/ black midsole). Also, the second from the bottom (blue upper w/ black midsole) looks good too. Great designs Jeff!

    The last one is sweet!

  • dlite

    6th, the last one.

    I’m not usually a fan of color, but I adore that shock full of orange hue on the opening post! It’s so vibrant, and makes me more inclined to run trails.

  • http://www.thoughtswithchris.blogspot.com Christine Jensen

    I LOVE that last one. (the others are great too!_

  • Brandon

    I really like #1, #2 if it had a black logo instead of gray, #5, and #6 with a red base instead of black. Great designs!

  • Mickey E

    2nd from the top (red/black/silver) are siiiick!!! Along with the 2nd from the bottom (blue/black/silver)!

  • Steve

    Hi im interested in buying my first Brooks shoes the T7 racer. I normally run in Nike size 7 ( UK size ). Are the sizes similar. Thanks

    @Steve A Men’s UK size 7 is equivalent to a Men’s US size 8.
