Your hometown is a special place. It holds your favorite running routes, local races and it may even be the place where you first laced up your shoes.
Seattle, Washington is our hometown and we wanted to pay homage to our incredible city! To the trails and people who have made our time in the Pacific Northwest nothing short of spectacular.
The Brooks Emerald Chariot is the first shoe in the Northwest Pack within the Brooks Heritage Collection – a lifestyle sneaker collection that pays tribute to the history of running. The Emerald Chariot features a stylized blue and forest green color scheme which pays tribute to the Pacific Ocean and fir trees that beautifully line the Pacific Northwest region. With an ultra-rich suede upper and air mesh for breathability, the Brooks Emerald Chariot is a fashionable way for the community to sport their city pride.
“As a brand with deep roots in the Seattle community, we wanted to create a shoe that embodied and celebrated the spirit of the Seattle community,” said Shane Downey, Heritage Creative Director and Business Manager.” “The hometown makeover of the historical Brooks Chariot provides the Pacific Northwest with a way to proudly sport their regional pride.”
The limited edition Brooks Emerald Chariot will be unveiled and sold exclusively at the Brooks Trailhead (3400 Stone Way N) at 9:00 am PT on January 31st. The Trailhead has special hours on Sunday, February 1 and will be open from 10:00 am PT to 3:00 pm PT. The shoe will be available for $89.99 while supplies.
And for those who won’t be in Seattle this weekend, never fear. We will be selling the Emerald Chariot on BrooksRunning.com in March. More details to come.
