Turntec Running Shoes

Previous Turntec Logo

The Turntec running shoe brand was started in the early 1980's by Jerry Turner after he left Brooks. It became part of the American Sporting Goods group brands which is now owned by the Brown Shoe Company. The brand was innovative and popular with runners in the 1980's, but declined in prominence after that, but the brand is still available today. The Turntec Roadhawk and Road Warrior were the popular models with runners in the 1980's.

Currently the Turntec brand has two running shoe models available catering for the lower price points of the running shoe market; the Expanse TR and Blast. Not a lot is known about these shoes.

    My Turntec shoes fell apart the second time I wore them. Sole came off.
