The Pacific Ocean, the largest ocean on earth, holds significant meaning to both the people of Tokyo and Seattle, connecting two world class cultures via a vast expanse of water that sits majestically between. As two metropolitan cities that celebrate and find harmony in nature, Brooks Heritage and Atmos (a Japanese sneaker boutique) wanted to bring to life the fluid and natural beauty of the water and the atmosphere around it. Taking inspiration from the majestic Pacific Ocean that separates Seattle and Tokyo, Atmos have taken the famed Brooks Chariot silhouette and re-imagined it with premium materialization and modern coloring that truly captures the essence of the ocean and the port cities that both Brooks and Atmos call home. The Brooks Heritage x Atmos "Pacific" Chariot features an upper constructed of rich grey suede reminiscent of the pale grey sky that touches the coast lines above the ocean while perforated detailing in the toe box and side panels add texture and richness to the shoe. The ocean blue of the sea is touched in the shoe in a rich collar leather lining as well as on the midsole wedge and heel logo. Similar to the sunrise breaking free through the clouds, the pale pink pebbled leather chevron beautifully contrasts the rich grey suede and highlights the beautiful materials and exceptional finish of the shoe. A custom branded insole features branding for both Brooks Heritage and Atmos.
The "Pacific" Chariot will include a custom box, tissue, laces, and sockliner. This collaboration is limited and supplies won't last so make sure you come in to get a pair! Release date Feb. 28th, 2015.
