Run responsibly with the new collection from Brooks

We all know how important it is to tread lightly on our planet, and being thoughtful about what we buy is a big step on the journey to reducing our impact. We love Brooks running gear already: their clothes and shoes are carefully designed with runners’ every need in mind. And now there’s another reason to have a browse: the latest collection from Brooks ticks all the boxes: it’s beautiful, it performs as brilliantly as you’ve come to expect from Brooks, and each item has been produced sustainably.

Brooks believes that running should be an endless source of positive energy – for ourselves and for the world. That is why Brooks aims to reduce the environmental impact of its products through a continued focus on materials, waste, and chemicals. Brooks is aiming to replace all polyester and nylon in its apparel line with recycled materials in 2023.

Find out more about the collection below or on the Brooks website.

BROOKS Canopy Jacket £80

This jacket has a surprise up its sleeve (or, to be precise, in its pocket). Made with a breathable DriLayer Seal fabric to let excess heat out without letting the elements in, this smart, lightweight jacket stuffs into its own back pocket and transforms into a mini backpack, so you can carry on your run uninterrupted when the sun comes out. With pockets galore and a fold-away hood, you have no excuses to get out there!

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Dash 1/2 Zip £50

This is one of those tops that will become a mainstay of your running wardrobe: with a half zip to allow for temperature fluctuations, those all-important thumbholes, and designed in soft breathable recycled polyester, the Dash is a Brooks design that keeps on giving.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Distance Graphic Long Sleeve £35

Not all tees are created equal. With thumbholes and an exceptionally flattering fit, this lightweight long sleeve top is made from 88% recycled fabric and is ideal as we move into warmer days, and can be effortlessly layered over vests and under jackets. The slightly shorter fit means that it doesn’t ride up, and the fabric wicks sweat beautifully. It’s that very rare thing in running: a trans-seasonal essential!

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Drive Convertible Run Bra £45

Brooks bras are made for running. Tons of research and development go into each one: rest assured, these are no mere crop tops; these are performance bras that will help you run each step more comfortably. This Convertible Bra is one of three in the new Drive range, and has adjustable back straps so you can choose to wear it how you prefer.

Available in sizes 32B-40E

BROOKS Drive Mesh Run Bra £40

The Drive Mesh Run Bra offers compression-led support with a flexible hold that moves with the body. As with the Convertible, this bra delivers comfort and support designed specifically for running. This beautifully designed two-layer bra has a free-cut bra and a mesh overlay.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Chaser 5″ 2-in-1 Short £55

All shorts in the collection are made of at least 88% recycled materials. These gorgeous Chaser shorts are made from recycled polyester made from five post-consumer plastic water bottles. As part of these efforts, Brooks has already diverted 22 million plastic bottles from landfill and oceans. And on top of which, these shorts perform as brilliantly as you would expect, with seams of stretchy nylon air-spun thread for a soft feel, and a new mesh and jersey liner to prevent chafing. With brilliant freedom of movement and all the pockets you could need, these are an essential bit of kit for spring and summer.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Method 8″ Short £45

The fit of these shorts is just spot on: with a lovely high waist that hits just where you need it to, and a longer length for good coverage, these are equally good worn on their own or under looser shorts. Made with sweat-wicking, lightweight fabric that offers just the right amount of compression, plus a useful back pocket, these are a perfect summer run short.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

BROOKS Method 7/8 Tights £68

With flames licking up your legs, how could you not pick up the pace?! The design of these is just gorgeous. With a sculpted fit, created in a compression-fit fabric, these beauties are a fab addition to your running wardrobe. With two thigh pockets (TWO!) and a back pocket, you can head out for your long run with everything close to hand.

Available in sizes XS-XXL

The Spring apparel collection from Brooks will be available at selected retailers and on www.brooksrunning.co.uk from 1March 2021.
