New Year New Rear Giveaway: Free Pair of Brooks Running Shoes


Wanna run yourself to bigger, better and faster things in the New Year? Well, then you’ve come to the right place. Not only does today kick off our week of special New Year New Rear Week content (get all the fab posts here), but it’s also the start of a week of ah-mazing giveaways that’ll blow your compression socks right off. (Or almost blow them off; they should be tight enough to stay on!) And to start, we’re giving away a pair of new running shoes (like they just came out) from one of our fave companies (hence us being a blog ambassador of theirs): Brooks Running!

And — even better — YOU get to pick which new pair you win. Here are the three options that are up for grabs:

1. Ravenna 8: So energizing, the Ravenna 8 will keep you running. This sleek and springy ride is packed with responsive cushioning and trusted support to make any run seem short, while heel-to-toe transitions keep feet moving quickly from one stride to the next.

2. Launch 4: Filled with boundless energy, the Launch 4 is ready to take off on new adventures. The responsive ride gets a boost from an added row of rebounding rubber under the forefoot. Plus, the redesigned U-Groove at the heel frees neutral runners to truly run their own way. Add in a streamlined upper with a light on-foot feel and you’ve got the perfect vehicle for fun, comfortable and out-of-this-world runs.

3. PureFlow 6: Experience your natural side in the lightweight and agile PureFlow 6. The flexible midsole feels plush underfoot for a natural feel that still protects from impact where needed. Plus, the updated seamless upper hugs feet with a whole lot of style.

  1. I would love a new pair of Launch shoes. I have a pair of Launch, Launch 2 and 3. The Launch 3s carried me through the Army Ten Miler and they were the Olympic pattern style with red stars on a white background with blue accents. Very appropriate for the race. Right now I’m putting on my Launch 2s to go do a 5k in 35 degree weather. As an “overweight” runner, they fit very well and support me so that I can go out and run and try and move the Goo! They are my favorite shoes. I’d love a pair in 9.5. Thanks so much. Eileen Zelazny. BTW. I love the Near Year, New Rear line. That’s what I’m working on. Happy New Year!
