Brooks Running is closing out National Ice Cream Month with a sweet new shoe line inspired by your favorite ice cream flavors and treats.
Brooks' Melts Collection features its classic running shoes—Ghost 12 and Ricochet LE—with a few updates and fresh designs. The shoes each resemble four iconic summer ice cream flavors: vanilla sprinkles, rainbow sherbet, cookies and cream and red, white and blue rocket popsicle. And, you're going to want all of them.
“Some of our favorite runs are under the sun during summer, and we know that many runners, like us, enjoy a cold, tasty post-run treat to cool down,” Director of Footwear Merchandising, Brice Newton, said in a press release. “With the Melts Collection, we give a special nod to those moments by paying tribute to the ice cream and Popsicle flavors we turn to after the miles are in the bank.”
In total, there are five shoes in the collection: Women's Ghost 12 in the vanilla sprinkles and rainbow sherbet colors, women's Ricochet LE in vanilla sprinkles and men's Ghost 12 in cookies and cream and rocket pop colors. The women's Ghost 12 and Ricochet LE vanilla sprinkles versions (our favorite!) feature a creamy neutral toned shoe with bright tie-dye shoelaces that fade from pink to orange and rainbow sprinkles printed on the sole.
The Brooks Ghost running shoe is a favorite amongst the running community, celebrated for its neutral fit, cushioned midsole and an integrated system of shock absorbers. The limited-edition Ghost 12 even comes with a newly engineered mesh and 3D Fit Print for a secure fit. In other words, they "cushion every stride and provide smooth heal-to-toe transitions" while you run so your last mile feels just as good on your feet as the first.
Brooks' Melts Collection is available starting Thursday, July 25 for a limited time on the Brooks Running website and at select retailers like Dick's Sporting Goods, Zappos and Road Runner Sports. You can shop the entire collection below!
