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.

    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!

    Second pair and I love them. They are great for everday wear. Not really a work out shoe although they are great for walking.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Tried to order a different color combination but ended up with this one when I couldn't find the one I wanted. I absolutely am pleased with this choice and they go with alot of my outfits for work and casual.

    Vanguard shoes

    2017/03/31 | Ohio |

    Very nice shoes, but the toe box is too narrow for my foot. I had to send them back. The return policy was simple with easy to follow instructions, and BEST of all FREE! So I got to try the shoes without worrying about a high return fee.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Great casual shoes

    2017/03/15 | Fort Mill, SC |

    I work at a creative agency where the dress code is a little more casual, and these are great with jeans. My only complaint is that they don't fit as well as my Brooks running shoes. They slip a little on my heel, but I can't go any smaller on the size, because I don't have any room elsewhere in the shoe.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Great shoes

    2017/02/10 | Houston, TX |

    I'm using these shoes for everyday wear. They are super cute and lightweight. Very comfortable! I would guess that if you have a wide foot these may not be the shoes for you, though.

    classic in blue, elegant in its own way

    2016/10/09 | new york |

    I thought with an orthotic insert this would help in walking without pain (plantar fasciitis). Didn't help, not the fault of Brooks. The blue colour is really what made me buy it.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
