This one will be pleasing to all those serious runners out there, and big up to Rich for providing this tip. Brooks, founded in 1914, is one of the oldest sports footwear companies out there. It’s great news that VK can endorse an entire brand since almost all Brooks shoes are vegan. From their website:
Does Brooks make vegan shoes?
Yes! Brooks does make vegan shoes. Except for the Addiction Walker, all of our shoes are vegan. That means there are no animal products or by-products used in any part of the shoe, including the glues.
Sweet! Now, I can’t really tell you much about the shoes themselves, and if there are any runners out there that know about these guys, please let me know or post a comment. I read that they are best known for their Adrenaline and Beast models (pictured above and below), which are known as “stability shoes.” But they are innovating beyond their bread and butter with Ghost and Pure. Below is a sampling of their best selling on Zappos.
Also, on a related subject, you should all know that New Balance does not guarantee that any of their shoes are vegan. “I also want to make you aware that in all of our shoes we do use different types of glues depending on what is available. Some of our glues will contain animal products as many glues do. As a result, we cannot guarantee that our shoes are completely vegan.” I felt that we should make that announcement since it seems like a lot of people think that some NB shoes are vegan.
