Run Wild with Brooks

Running the concrete jungle can feel a little dull sometimes. The roads, the buildings, even the skies can lack that certain something the true wilderness offers, so Brooks has injected some wild into our runs with their new limited edition Urban Jungle collection.

There are three shoes available, each with its own jungle print that will bring out your animal instincts. Cushiony, structured Ghost 8s – with zoomy zebra print for men and speedy leopard print for women – and energising women's Ravenna 6s in a vibrant green print. The same brilliant Brooks shoes, just a little wilder.

I tested them out in what can only be described as an urban rain forest, a very soggy ZSL London Zoo during a scavenger hunt to find the wildest animals. It turns out that even the scariest of animals don't like the rain though, so it was down to us to bring the spirit of the jungle to the city.

Win Wild!

  1. Great competition! The weather here is wild as anything so I'm sure I will have a wild run image in no time! x
