Last year, we saw a bevy of special-edition releases from brands celebrating our National Parks Centennial. Now, a year later, it seems as if Brooks Running is out to prove that you don’t need a special occasion to show your appreciation. Introducing the Brooks Limited Edition National Parks Shoes.
The Seattle, Washington-based running company has gone ahead and created five special edition colorways for their popular Cascadia 12 trail running silhouette with matching technical shirts. As far as silhouette choice – they couldn’t have done better. The Cascadia 12 is tailor-made for trail running, with a wide toebox, serious lugs, and lightweight cushioning. As far as their looks goes; each colorway represents a separate park (Ranier, Yellowstone, the Great Smokey Mountains, and Yosemite) and boasts a specialized medallion on the back heel. To help support these national treasures, Brooks has said that they’ll be donating five percent of the wholesale of each shoe and shirt to the National Parks Foundation.
