These are so casual and classic, I love them- my first pair I bought a size too big but wore them for a year anyway because I loved them so much. I recently purchased a second pair in a size down and I love them even more. The first pair developed small holes in the sole but I didn't know if that was potentially from them being too big and sliding. Both the ones I have are the maroon sort of…

The first pair developed small holes in the sole but I didn't know if that was potentially from them being too big and sliding. Both the ones I have are the maroon sort of color that is presently sold out, would love to have a gray pair- heck, even a dark and light gray pair if you guys would do them, but I would take the gray previously done if you would do them again. Personally, I'm not sure why you guys are doing these bright bright colors with this shoe, it looks so good with the more muted colors like navy, gray, and maroon. Read More

Break in Period needed

These aren't running shoes, let's get that straight. They're great day to day shoes, though. That said, they surprisingly have a break in period. You wouldn't think so because they're so flexible and light. However, the first week or so of wearing them they would cave in towards the toes causing irritation and would have led to blisters. I swapped them out for thicker socks, and after a week or…

I swapped them out for thicker socks, and after a week or so of walking around, presto, no more irritation. They look slick, they're crazy comfortable now, and are perfect for day to day use.

More colors and sizes in stock please

Love these shoes, I have them in 3 colors. I want to buy more but you only have weird colors in random sizes. Please restock in cool colors and sizes so I can buy them.

Great wave of nostalgia!

Bought these shoes out of powerful feelings of nostalgia. I ran in these shoes many miles in the early 80's. Loved them. Took them with me to China for two years. Patched soles with shoe goo to keep them going. This new version is still very comfortable. They do seem a bit too soft to do much running on pavement. I am a walker these days and look forward to striding out in my Vanguards!

What type of leather is used in this shoe - Cow Hyde or Pig skin? Thanks

2017/11/22 MIAMI, FL NAV

The Vanguard features a real pigskin upper.

Does this use real leather or synthetic?

2017/10/29 Boston, MA Sam

The Vanguard features a real pigskin upper.

Are these shoes made of man made materials?

2017/10/20 Fort Worth, Texas Just Some Dude

Not entirely, the Vanguard has leather in the shoe.

Hi, Do any of the stores in NYC sell these? Preferred color: Blue Size: Euro 42 / US 9.5

You can view stores that carry Brooks products on our Store Locator! http://www.brooksrunning.com/en_us/store-locator

Would these shoes be good for those with lower back pain? I know it says that these are not actual performance running shoes so I wasn't sure if that meant they did not have the same type of support and features you would expect from a running shoe.

Our lifestyle shoes do not offer any type of support.
