Style #120171

Originally born in 1982, the legendary Brooks Chariot was one of the most worn running shoes by runners in the eighties. Our rejuvenated award-winner features many of the same tech qualities pioneered during the decade. A medial wedge for pronation control, molded tri-layer insole for cushioning, solid rubber outsole, reflective hits for visibility – this shoe blew legwarmers out of the water. Crafted from our history yet designed for the modern woman, what’s past is prologue has never been a truer statement.

Please note: The Chariot 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.

I was looking for a pair of casual shoes that would provide me some good support. I usually end up wearing my running shoes everywhere because casual shoes do not provide enough support for me. I'm glad that I tried these shoes! They are good for walking and provide great support. I would never run in them, but they seem to be a nice compromise for me so that I don't have to wear my running shoes in order to get the support I need. They look cute with jeans and even a maxi skirt. I ordered Black/Rose Quartz. The "Rose Quartz" part of the shoe was REALLY shiny (almost metallic looking) when I first pulled them out of the box. They were a little too flashy for me...but I decided to give them a chance. Online it looked more pink to me, but out of the box it is more gold. Now I've worn them for awhile and the color has faded. They are perfect! I want another pair.

I only wear Brooks for running shoes, so I was excited when I saw these super-cute retro styles for casual use. I forget what the color I got is called...the shoes looked kind of light blue on my computer but when I opened the box they were BRIGHT TURQUOISE! I was also surprised after reading a bunch of reviews on how narrow they were to find them VERY ROOMY. I do not have narrow feet by any means, but these are almost wide. Another sizing issue: a lot of people said these ran either big or small; I ordered the same size I do for running shoes and it works perfectly. One last thing: these shoes are like heaters for your feet! My feet get hot just walking my dogs around the block. Bottom line, I think these are comfortable so I kept them, but they're not as cute as I was hoping they'd be.

      Comments about Chariot:

      I have tried over 5 pairs of shoes this year from running and weight training and these shoes exceeded my expectations. I have great support on my legs, and feet when I run. I can do my leg excercised for 2 hours with full support. Not only do I love the retro look, but it gets me pumped when shoes really do what they are suppose to do. I'm not a great athlete by any means, but for the running, hiking, training and biking, these fit the bill.

          Comments about Chariot:

          I bought this Chariot on Sale, as a walk about, errand running shoe. It is extremely comfortable and my arch supports fit nicely. If you intend ordering the aqua blue (color 556) remember what you will end up receiving is a sea foam/ sea glass GREEN shoe. NO part of this shoe is even remotely close to aqua blue. I happen to like the color so it's a keeper.

            I wear these as everyday out-and-about shoes. They are strong enough to put up with a dry-weather bike commute, comfortable enough that I don't notice I'm wearing shoes at all, and bright pink enough to make me feel awesome all day long.

                      I've coveted these shoes for a long time. After following Brooks Heritage on Instagram I knew I had to purchase them. I love the retro style of them the best. They are athletic but casual looking. I've received several compliments on them. I've worn them out shopping and also to work on casual days at work. I usually wear an 8 in Brooks running shoes and even though suggestions were to size up...I stuck with an 8. They are a tad tight, but I wont be running or working out in them so I'm OK with it. I got the black and white ones but I'm sure I will purchase a fun colored pair in the future.
