Style #120159

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 shoes for those suffering from plantar fasciitis.

    2017/05/05 | Bothell, WA |

    I am NOT a runner, but a 77-year-old woman who has had plantar fasciitis and my podiatrist recommended your shoes. They make my feet much happier. My husband wears the Addiction Walker exclusively, and likes them very much.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Vintage Comfort Perfected

    2017/04/25 | Greenville, SC |

    Got this shoe because I absolutely love vintage sneakers. I've had other vintage sneaker brands in the past but was very surprised at the great comfort and quality of the Brooks. I guess that's what made Brooks such a top tier shoe brand in the first place. This shoe is stylish, lightweight, and very comfy. I am definitely going to buy another one in a different color because I wear this one all the time it's getting worn out already. Definitely a must for the vintage sneaker enthusiast!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Cute but runs big

    2017/04/14 | Pittsburgh, PA |

    I ordered a half size down from what I typically run in, but I should have gone at least a full size down. They were huge!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Wanted to Love

    2017/04/12 | NC |

    I bought these for a trip to NYC. One afternoon of walking and these were killing my feet. I added my orthotics hoping it would help, but I hardly noticed a difference. They felt unstable and unsupportive. Pro - they are really cute, so if you're just kicking around and not doing a ton of walking they would be a great option. The suede also helps them with a little water resistance.

    LOVE so much!
