About our range.

With over 100 years of innovation, Brooks has come a long way since its beginnings as a ballet slipper and bathing shoe manufacturer! Today, they continue that innovation and create running trainers and clothing for men and women, with the aim of taking you further and faster.

Behind the curtains, their scientists work with researchers around the world to study movement as we run. It’s this knowledge that goes into the heart of their designs. The result? The feeling of supreme softness on every landing, as well as the smooth and stable heel-to-toe transitions.

Because of the technology and features, we believe that their footwear also has a handful of health benefits. This means that they can be worn casually, and is great news for those of you who want to avoid having a wardrobe full of footwear for each occasion! This is why we love Brooks trainers and the brand itself.

If you’re used to wearing other brands of running trainers, then take the word of other wearers, who describe the fit as if they’re walking on clouds. It’s no wonder that Brooks’ advertisements feature runners defying gravity!

The health benefits of Brooks trainers.

We believe that wearing Brooks footwear will bring you many health benefits for your lower limb health. At ShoeFit.uk, we break down each style’s properties in terms of what a shoe-fitter sees. This comes from over 20 years of shoe-fitting experience in a brick-and-mortar shop.

Today, this information is available to you. We hope that it will help you to make more informed purchase decisions when it comes to your next pair!

The following list isn’t representative of every pair, so we recommend booking your free personal shopping appointment with us for specific details. During the appointment, you’ll be able to speak with one of our expert shoe-fitters and narrow down choices for you. At no cost to you; at whatever time fits around your busy day; and from the comfort of your own home!

Brooks trainers are very good for most people based on our experience as shoe-fitters.

Whether you’re active and want something supportive, or needing footwear for everyday wear, there are styles to suit even specific foot types.

The bottom line is that it ultimately depends on what you’re planning to wear them for; how long you’re going to wear them for; and where you are wearing them to.
