Cross Country Running Shoe
Suitable for off-road use. Good to clean
The "Astroturfer" is designed for off-road walking. Its tread grips even on damp, uneven ground, and the upper made of black, full-grain and greased cowhide is easy to clean and maintain, even with heavier dirt. Thanks to the originalBrütting last, the shoe has a pronounced anatomical shape with a spherical heel and indicated orthopedic joint support, which is reflected in the footbed. The shock-absorbing sole has a three-layer construction with abrasion-resistant rubber outsole, wedge and full-length cellular rubber midsole. The sole edge and the rear cap are reinforced with rubber, and there is an additional leather cap over the toe area.
Brütting. Genuine running shoes, crafted by shoemakers
Since the end of the 1960s, Brütting has been producing sports shoes that were developed in close cooperation between Eugen Brütting from Nuremberg and trainers and active athletes and are still "hand-made in Germany" today. The Brütting-shoes are throughout shoemaker worked. They are built on a sickle last, which is more curved than usual lasts. The foot is enclosed at the heel by a soft-fitting border lining. The back cap is rubber reinforced. The sole construction refrains from today's common methods (foamed plastic with air or gel inclusion, etc.) and solves the task of cushioning the walking stride in a conventional, precisely shoemaker's way. In combination with the vegetable tanned leather insole made of cow split leather and the whole pigskin cover sole, this provides for a medium-hard step - one should not expect a butter-soft "sinking in".
Brütting and the others
Ever since we started stocking Brütting leather running shoes, we've been told that this is an assault on the joints of our unsuspecting customers because we deprived them of the blessings of midsole-compression-gel-sole advancements that have been poured out annually for decades. We have always been surprised that running shoes from the 1960s should today represent a major orthopedic risk, because in the time that has passed since then, rather little has changed in anatomy and path construction, but a lot has changed in sports fashion marketing. In this respect, we are not surprised that the major brands are now downgrading a bit in terms of gel and compression, because critical voices note that the over-cushioning of today's sports shoes only shifts the loads and tends to delay a training effect. We'll hold back and leave it up to you whether you actually use these leather sports shoes for training or just for après-sports. Because - that's one of the main differences - they cut a fine figure for the latter, too.
