The perforated cowhide suede of the
1969 Brütting Marathon shoe prevents
heat from accumulating in the interior.
Built-in joint support with padding for
heels and balls of the feet and a hugging
fit that nevertheless gives plenty
of room for the toes.
The outsole and wedge made of cellular
rubber, the insole made of vegetable-tanned split cow leather and the pigskin
leather inner sole provide a medium-hard step (you won’t “sink in” as
you would with today‘s foam shoes).
Brütting. A real running shoe.
The Brütting sports shoe has been made
since the end of the 60s and enjoys
cult status among connoisseurs and
competitive athletes. It was developed
in close co-operation between the
Nuremberg shoemaker Eugen Brütting
and several coaches and athletes and
is today still “handmade in Germany”.
Made of leather – crafted on a last.
The shoes are constructed on a
crescent-shaped last. A soft border lining
surrounds the heel and the sole‘s
edge and back are strengthened with
rubber. The sole structure is produced
in keeping with a conservative, traditional
shoemaking method, the three-layer
structure, with a hard-wearing rubber
running sole, wedge and front-to-back
middle sole made of cellular rubber,
and the chrome-tanned leather insole
provide a medium-hard step.
