Running shoes continue to come out in a wide variety of shapes, colors and design elements. This week Brooks unveiled a limited-edition Urban Jungle Collection, featuring bold cheetah- and zebra-inspired printed uppers on special make-up editions of its Ghost 8 and Ravenna 6 shoes. The neutral Ghost 8 (for men and women) carries a price tag of $130, while the stability-enhancing Ravenna 6 (for women only) is going for $120. (Men’s shoes have the Zebra print, women’s shoes have the cheetah print.)
An announcement unveiling the shoes this week said the shoes are “inspired by the animals that inhabit the Africa plains and designed for the urban concrete.” The shoes are available at a select number of retail shops and also online at BrooksRunning.com.
