Brooks Running Co. has launched a new line of trail running shoes and apparel with REI that will benefit the National Parks Foundation.
The new National Parks Collection includes a series of limited-edition Cascadia 12 trail running shoes ($130) and technical running shirts ($34) with color motifs and designs that celebrate national parks across the U.S. Each shoe is stamped with its own unique national park emblem, while accompanying shirts feature one-of-a-kind designs that are inspired by various parks.
Brooks says it will be donating 5 percent of the wholesale cost of each piece in its National Parks Collection to the National Park Foundation, up to $50,000 in total.
The collections parks and designs include:
- – Mt. Rainier National Park which uses gray and blue tones that are iconic to the northwest mountain;
- – Yosemite National Park is 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 by vivid colors drawn from the park’s awe-inspiring hot springs.
