Brooks Vanguard Men's Vintage Running Shoes

Hover to zoom

$84.99 $55.00

Style #110166

Originally introduced in 1976, the Brooks Vanguard captures the essence of the 1970's running boom utilizing clean design lines, rich aesthetic, and classic styling with an iconic T-toe. The Vanguard features a real pigskin upper, as well as Brooks iconic Octopi outsole for traction, which has been recreated along with a pebbled Chevron and heel tab for opulence. The Vanguard is the signature shoe in the Spring 2014 launch as it embodies the running past and fashion-forward approach the Heritage collection defines itself by.

Please note: The Vanguard pays tribute to its original design, but this modern refresh is not a performance running shoe. As everyday kicks, you may wish to choose a half size smaller than your Brooks running shoes.

      Great retro sneaker

      By Kate

      from Arlington, TX

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Pros

      • Cute
      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Poor Arch Support
      • Squeaky

      Best Uses

        Comments about Vanguard:

        I love these shoes. I wear a women's 10 and a men's 8, and the 8 fits perfectly. The burgundy looks great and overall the retro look is perfect. I wouldn't mind a little more arch support, especially because there's not room to add a inserts. My only other concern is that they're so squeaky! I think k they'll be better once I break them in a little more. Overall a great shoe for casual wear.

        Great for casual use and while they are a little narrow, you get used to it and forget about it.

        Love them

        from Louisville, KY

          Best Uses

          • Casual wear

          Comments about Vanguard:

          These shoes look awesome and are super comfortable, but are definitely meant for casual wear and not training. Fit runs about one full size smaller than dress shoes, but the same as I wear in another northwestern based athletic brand.
