Additional Information

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 use this as a casual shoe but it is very supportive, I was able to take out the insole and use my own orthodics. I have narrow feet and they fit me fine. They look and feel great, no breaking in period, comfortable as soon as I stepped into the shoe. I may have to buy another pair in a different color!

        Comments about Vanguard:

        This is my first pair of Brooks shoes. I saw them in a magazine and was enamored with their retro look. I purchased them for casual every day wear,not for exercise. The shoe itself seems true to length, but quite narrow compared to other common sneaker brands. The shoe is very lightweight, leaving the perception that the value/price proposition is not there (i.e. the shoe is quite expensive for what you get). The shoe bends easily and is comfortable for casual use.

          These shoes are my "play shoes." The style isn't what I prefer for working out, but they make a great in-between shoe for walking around the city, hanging out at the park, etc. They look great with workout clothes!

              Found these shoes in a women's fitness catalog that was sold out in my size, 10-10 1/2, but tried these in an 11, and they were too big. I then ordered the men's shoe in a 9, and they are perfect. The only difference is the tweed is more muted, not as white/grey. The sole on the men's shows it as being all white, and instead it is like the women's, black and white. They feel very comfortable, and look so good!
