A History Lesson with Brooks Regent

    Discover the Brooks Regent Alumini

    The brand new Brooks Regent is here. “The Great Mistake” by Brooklyn-based Alumini displays a cream midsole, however, the upper comes with a twist.

    The uppers are made of different materials: the right toebox is built with suede while the left is built with nubuck leather. The right toebox uses some type of matte leather and, as expected, the left toebox is mesh constructed.

    All of these subtle differences represents and emphasizes differences as well as a message of unity. To top it all off, special insoles are present at every pair as well as embroidered logos on each tongue.

    The Alumini x Brooks Heritage Regent “The Great Mistake” is now available at Sneakersnstuff.



    About Brooks

    Brooks was founded in Philadelphia over 100 years ago; the name of the brand comes from the founder’s wife maiden name “Bruchs”, a Hebrew-related word that means “blessed”.

    However, the brand only started producing the so well known running-shoes by the 1930s. They have collaborated with major shops worldwide, allowing the brand to jump-over to a lifestyle section rather than stagnating in the tech-runner category.
