Were you one of the lucky Coloradans, Iowans, or New Englanders who, on Monday, saw a rare southern display of the aurora borealis, aka the Northern Lights? No? Well, all is not lost. On Wednesday, July 1, Brooks will release its Aurora Collection, a tie-dyed facelift of four of its shoes, with colors inspired by the shimmering lights.
Shoes receiving a makeover include Brooks' category-leading neutral trainer Ghost 8, max cushion impact-absorber Glycerin 13, stable Adrendaline GTS 15, and zippy Launch 2. (Read all about the Launch 2, our Gear of the Year winning running shoe in the Summer Buyer’s Guide.) All models are available in both men and women’s fits.
So maybe you didn’t peep a rare southern display of the northern lights, but that doesn’t mean these special-edition shoes can’t light up your runs for the rest of the summer.
