Men's Vanguard

$84.99 $55.00

Style #110166
Special Offer:
Free tech tee with $75 purchase!

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.

      Comments about Vanguard:

      I didn't buy these for running. Having recently moved from a very un-walkable city, to Seattle, where I walk everywhere, I realized quickly that it's time to retire the Vans. These are great, comfortable, casual shoes that are perfect for lots of walking.

      • 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.

        The retro styling is good. All of the Vanguard line are horrible cheap shoes.
