In honor of Pride month, Brooks has created a “Run Proud” collection featuring sneakers and apparel with colorful custom designs by Queer artist and activist Wednesday Holmes.
Among other things, the star of the pride-filled collection is a rendition of Brooks’ beloved Ghost 15 running sneaker. The updated sneaker is comprised of a whimsical print featuring catchy phrases in an array of swirling shapes and vibrant colors from bright yellows to deep greens.
The active footwear is carbon neutral and crafted out of comfortable and cushy recycled materials and breathable mesh uppers, making them perfect for just about every occasion from running to walking and everything in between.
The Ghost 15 sneakers are soft and lightweight, offering distraction-free wear with each stride.
Other features of the inclusive footwear include all-black laces, Brooks sleek logo detailing and a durable and walkable rubber tread. The running shoes are practically bursting with color, encapsulating themes like joy and togetherness. The “Run Proud” Ghost 15 sneakers are available in a wide array of men’s and women’s sizes for $140.
Along with sneakers, the collection includes “distance” tank tops in two styles, a “Moment” baseball cap and cozy socks that allow runners to show off their true colors.
Each piece reads “Run With Pride” in rainbow font alongside Brooks branding. The “Run Proud” apparel is also available in a wide range of sizes and retails for $18 to $32 depending on the product.
