History Of Brooks Running
- Brooks, established in 1914, initially produced shoes for a vast range of sports. In the mid-70s, the company staggered in the latter part of the decade and filed for insolvency protection in 1981. In 2001, the product line was slashed by more than 50% to concentrate the brand entirely on running, and its engagement on performance technology improved. Brooks Running came to be the top-selling brand in the specialty running shoe market in 2011 and kept going so through 2017 with a 25% market share.
Achievements of Brooks Running

About Brooks Running Shoes
Brooks is moving away from using levels of durability as the key differentiation for categories in their range. Other brands are also moving in this direction, like Nike, which is the biggest example.
“Run Happy” is Brooks slogan, and their running shoe ideology is that there is no right or wrong way to run. That a running shoe is not inherently right or wrong for you, but that each runner should select the shoe they need based on their personal preference and the experience they expect to get out of a run.
