Fast Flats: U.S. Olympic Marathoners’ Racing Shoes

Desiree Davila, Brooks

Desiree Davila will be racing in a pair of custom Brooks T7 Racers. They’re also red, white and blue and have a stars and stripes pattern with “Desi 2012” emblazoned across the lateral side of the heel, plus a motivational message (“I’m Ready”) inspired by her fiancée inscribed on the inside of the shoe. Brooks had to modify the design slightly to fit its logo on the 4.7-oz. men’s size 5.5 shoes she’ll be wearing. (The Brooks T7 Racer is a unisex model).
