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.
Looking forward to the future,
