EB Lydiard Road Runner Shoe

The EB Lydiard Road Runner Shoe from Brütting was the result of a collaboration in late 1960's and early 1970's with the athletics coach Arthur Lydiard.


The shoes were launched to the running community, mostly via mail order in the early 70's. At the time they did retail for USD$32, which was almost double the price of a comparable shoe, so they were not widely used; but they did have a good reputation amongst the runners that used them.

The shoes were made of soft one piece Kangaroo skin leather upper; were very roomy in the toe box; and were well padded under the heel.

The Brütting company still manufacturers them the same as how they were manufactured from the early 70's. They can be purchased at Manufactum's website: UK, Germany & International.
