The Eliot Runner — like the company’s hare mascot — takes its name from Eliot Lounge, Boston’s famous runners’ bar. The shoe also epitomizes the brand’s clean, vintage aesthetic, so you won’t find bright, neon colors here.
While this might be Tracksmith’s first running shoe, they’ve been designing and researching the Eliot Runner for years. Made for forest trails, wood-chip paths, and other natural surfaces, it offers a responsive sole, ample cushioning, and a snug fit.
Outfitted with a Pebax insole and midsole, the Eliot Runner delivers a soft and springy step. Plus, its footbed is triple the thickness of a normal sockliner. Together, with a mesh upper, suede collar and eyestay, and a durable rubber outsole, the Eliot Runner promises to handle the rigors of any marathon or ultra-marathon.
