BlueLine shoe with tech elements

The Brooks BlueLine Lab

It’s not rocket science. But it’s close.

Introducing the out-of-this-world technology of BlueLine. The BlueLine Lab is charting the course for the future of running shoes by developing limited quantities of innovative prototypes at a sprinter’s pace. Stay tuned for the release of the Aurora-BL — a gravity-defying shoe right here on earth. Sign up and be the first to know when it takes off. Happy landings.

BlueLine Lab History

In major marathons, racers follow the blue line — the fastest route from start to finish. Our BlueLine Lab tackles futuristic shoe technology with the same approach, using the fastest path to get advanced prototypes developed and on to the feet of runners at lightspeed. The BlueLine team is quick on their feet and have been breaking new ground in speed, trail, and cushion shoes for years. Take a look at the roadmap of BlueLine Lab shoes, past to present.

Header : Hyperion Elite (June 2020)
Body : A shoe rooted in speed. The Hyperion Elite was developed at a rapid pace, which is fitting considering the prototype is what Des Linden wore to win the 2018 Boston Marathon. The Hyperion Elite features responsive, nitrogen-infused DNA FLASH cushioning and unique carbon fiber propulsion plate to keep you running faster, longer.
