Let's hope this represents the shoebox of the future

The package was huge.

It was a big cardboard box measuring a meter square and 30cm deep. How did this package end up at my house? Did I subconsciously order several pairs of running shoes or boxes of gels? It was bulky and heavy and I had no idea what it was or who it was from.

When I opened the box, I was completely surprised at what was in it.

It was a spaceship.

The ship had the name “Transcend 01” on it. There were labels all over the ship describing its features such as: “Banana Cannons”, “Electrolyte Lasers”, “BMI Boosters” and a “Carbo-Loading Dock.” It appeared to be a running package after all.

Excitedly, I pressed the button to open this pod and a video screen on the ship began playing. It was a spaceman from Brooks headquarters and he had travelled back intime to deliver a shoe from the future, the Brooks Transcend. The video instructed me to open up the package via a thruster nob on the back and voila, these shoes from the future were revealed.

Here’s a sneak peek at the Brooks Transcend which will be available in the near present starting in February.

This shoe literally has "ultimate ride" written all over it.

Making a coral colour combination look good for a men's shoe is a futuristic task.

I could take photos of this shoe all day.
The upper is impeccably designed and worth of many a photo.
The black guard rails wrapping around the base of the shoe provides support to those who need it.

This is premium ride with plush cushioning that doesn't feel heavy.
