Brooks Biomechanics Lab Testing Program
Brooks conducts continuous research on runners’ biomechanics (the
way you move), and the effects of running footwear on biomechanics, performance, and comfort. Our studies, conducted at our Bothell, WA headquarters, examine the effectiveness of current Brooks product in
meeting runners’ needs—as compared with competitors’ products and in
an effort to pioneer new technologies that enhance running efficacy and performance. The data we collect from runners in the lab directly informs
the development of Brooks products.

The duration of testing ranges from one to two hours, one to four times

a year. Testers will be required to run for a maximum of three minutes at
a time and at a pace of 8:30/mile.

Brooks Wear Testing Program
Brooks needs your expert opinion on products in development. Your input
will shape the fit, function, design and color of future footwear. At times,
you will be able to keep the product you wear on your regular runs.
However, at other times, we will call to request that you ship product back
to Brooks at your own expense. If we do not have to cut open your shoes, we can return them to you upon completion of our analysis.
