Desiree Davila shoe: Brooks T7 Racer

Alot of you sat glued ti the T.V as Desiree Davila almost became the first U.S female winner of the Boston Marathon. Even though she came up seconds short, Desiree Davila had the race of her life.

Desiree Davila fought to the tape to become the first American female finisher and second-place overall female finisher at the 2011 Boston Marathon. Desi clocked in at the official time of 2:22:38, an American women’s course record, making her the third fastest U.S. female marathoner of all time. Only Olympic medalists Joan Benoit Samuelson and Deena Kastor have run faster.

I know you all find that interesting but deep down, I know what you’re asking… what shoes was Desi wearing? It's the Brooks T7 Racers.

This would not be considered a true Mininalist shoe but I must say it's nice and light and is on the lower end of support.

Brooks say:
Looking for something "lickety-split"? This incredibly light road-racing shoe is the fastest in the pack, with a new eye-catching upper for fly-by style. The streamlined, asymmetric upper works with the anatomy of the foot to perfectly wrap the arch securely from start to finish.

Hansons-Brooks athlete Desiree Davila races in the T7 and wore it during this year's Boston marathon as she became the third fastest U.S. female marathoner ever. Triathlete Chrissie Wellington also races in the T7 and calls it "an amazing shoe!" She was rocking a pair when she smashed the world record at the Ford Ironman Arizona in November.
