Brütting Roadrunner – 1970s running shoe

Brutting

An obscure vintage sports classic that’s still doing the rounds in 2008 – the Brütting Roadrunner running shoe.

The Roadrunner was developed (as the name suggests) for road running in 1970 in co-operation with Arthur Lydiard, the Australian runner and long-distance running coach. it has a suede upper, ankle support and a cushioning of the heel and ball of foot.

Probably not the most technically-advanced shoe you might see on the market, but certainly one of the more distinctive. Yours for £110.

    I’m looking at this Brutting running shoe the was derived From the Classic Artur Lydiard Road runner classic. I’m wondering how to order a pair because I had a pair 20 plus years ago. Maybe sombody knows. they dont seem to be available in the USA.
    Thanks,
