Own the Limited Edition T7 Racer – Just Like Chrissie Wellington’s

Custom T7 Racer

Custom T7 Racer for Chrissie Wellington

In honor of triathlete Chrissie Wellington we created a custom T7 Racer for her to wear at the Ford Ironman® World Championship on 10/9/10. Soon you’ll be able to purchase these limited edition shoes for yourself. The ultra lightweight, ultra flexible T7 Racer features a streamlined, asymmetrical upper that wraps the arch securely from start to finish. The “Wellington” edition also includes:

  • Loops on tongue and heel for easy transition from bike to run
  • British flag depicted on the heel counter
  • Sockliner with a special message for Chrissie
  • “War on ALS” inscribed in the heel area

In late October, 200 pairs of the Wellington limited edition will go on sale for $85 on www.brooksrunning.com, more than three months before the standard T7 Racer’s launch on February 1, 2011. For each Wellington edition T7 Racer sold, Brooks will donate $25 to the Blazeman Foundation for ALS, a charity close to Chrissie’s heart.

“The T7 Racer is an amazing shoe!” says Wellington. “I love the way Brooks modified it to suit my specific needs, and that they’ve created a promotion around this shoe that supports a cause that’s important to me.”

When the shoes are available, we’ll announce it on our Facebook page and on Twitter, so stay tuned.

    would love one of those. will keep an eye out.

  • Ana

    I would love to have a T7. I am a truly runner “wanna be” with not much talent but lots of determination. I run or walk to suppot all the causes that i believe in like Autism, adoption, breast cancer. Running is one of the ways that helps me help others.

  • Dave

    Has the fact that Chrissie didn’t race going to affect this promotion?

  • DESi ROCKS

    I was in Chicago for the marathon over the weekend and saw the same shoe on Desiree Davila. They look awesome and would love them, but I would much rather have her shoes than Chrissie’s. She was the 4th fastest AMERICAN WOMEN EVER in the marathon with that time. Way to go DESI, you should be the new BROOKS covergirl.

  • TriMe

    Great shoe, great cause and I love Chrissy and Ironman but I second the thoughts on Desi… where is her shoe???

  • Mitch Martin

    I love that Brooks has gotten in to tri’s, and I once was a runner before and now do tri’s and love the support there also. Just like the others though lets see some more support for DESI she is your number one athlete, and the number 1 runner in AMERICA lets see her on the homepage and her own shoes.

  • We’re big fans of Desi here! She and the entire Hansons-Brooks team were wearing the new T7 Racers — like Chrissie’s, but without the loops, Union Jack, and custom messages. You’ll be able to get a pair of “Desi shoes” when they are released on February 1, 2011.

    I’m checking the website every day for these. I lost my dad to ALS and directed a 5K race in his memory for the Blazeman Foundation raising $10,000. Bob & MaryAnn Blais are wonderful people and they are truly committed to raising awareness and funding for ALS, a truly horrific disease with no treatment and no cure.
    There will be a Nation Cycle for ALS event coming up in February, please look for information and get involved.

  • This is an epic shoes! I would love to have this 🙂

  • Sean Roland

    Will there be a tri specific T7 offered? I miss the days when Brooks had the best tri shoe on the market–was that the Brooks Kona offered around 1995 or so?

  • Donna dourney

    Are these shoes ever actually going on sale?

  • Mark Blazeman Warrior

    Many of us close to the Blazeman Foundation are curious as to when or even if these shoes will be going on sale. Could you please give us SOME information?

  • Hi everyone:

    Rest assured, these shoes are being produced! There was an unexpected delay with the factory so our best estimate on when they will be available to ship is January.

    We are currently working on getting these posted to our site to be available for pre-order. I will post back here, and announce on Facebook/Twitter when that is live.

    Apologies for the delay – we are also quite eager to see these shoes released!

  • Hi folks,
    The shoe is available for order here: http://www.brooksrunning.com/T7-Racer/100019,default,pd.html. Cheers!

  • I use the whole line of Brooks shoes;training, racing, 5k and up. This looks like the perfect shoe for my Iron-man arsenal.

  • Gale V

    Has Brooks looked at or thought of an updated version of the Kona racing flat for release.
