In honor of triathlete Chrissie Wellington’s return to Kona in 2011, we created a custom T7 Racer. Now you can order 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. These super-fast Wellingtons also feature:
- 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
Only 200 pairs of the Wellington limited edition are available to order for $85 on BrooksRunning.com. Brooks will donate all proceeds from each pair of Wellington edition T7 Racers sold 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.”
Below is a video featuring Chrissie from when she first joined Brooks as one of our athletes. You can cheer her on this weekend at the 2011 Ironman World Championship in Kona.
