Brooks officially launched their National Parks collection today, available in stores and online at REI.com. The collection includes both footwear and apparel with a series of limited edition Brooks Cascadia 12 trail running shoes and technical running T-shirts.
Brooks is donating 5 percent of the wholesale cost of every National Parks Collection pair of shoes (retail for $130) and T-shirt (retail for $34) purchased to the National Park Foundation to help protect the places and spaces where people run.
The collection includes a shoe and shirt dedicated to all National Parks and is inspired by the look and feel of park ranger uniforms. Other specific parks and designs include:
- Mt. Rainier National Park which uses gray and blue tones that are iconic to the northwest mountain;
- Yosemite National Park, brought to life by deep blues and bright greens—colors often seen near the streams and creeks of the park;
- Great Smoky Mountains National Park represented through deep reds and oranges often seen against the mountains at sunset;
- And Yellowstone National Park, paid tribute to the vivid colors drawn from the park’s awe-inspiring hot springs.
