UBIQ x Brooks Liberty Chariot

Brooks Heritage and UBIQ Partner to Launch the "Liberty" Chariot

Historic Lifestyle Brand and Famed Retailer Gives Nod to Philly
with Premium Collaboration

From the original signing of the Declaration of Independence, to the world famous microbrew industry the city is now known for, Philadelphia has always been a place where DIY reigns supreme and the status quo is upheaved. Giving a nod to the city by representing the Liberty Bell, UBIQ and Brooks Heritage have teamed up to introduce the exclusive UBIQ x Brooks “Liberty” Chariot which will launch in the UK on 27th December.

Taking inspiration from Philadelphia’s craftsmanship and the sheer beauty of its iconic relics, Brooks and UBIQ have put their own spin on the famed 1982 Brooks Chariot silhouette. Dubbed the "Liberty," the upper on the Brooks Chariot is constructed of smooth premium dark brown leather. Subtle and unassuming, it boasts a handcrafted look that is built tough for gritty Philly streets. Burgundy lining and gold details on the tongue, heel tab, aglet, and lace lock compliment the design, but never break its character. A white and black midsole mixes up the palette before giving way to a gum flavored EVA outsole, complete with a hardened rubber heel for durability. Staying true to the original design, the eyelets turn to D-rings midway through the vamp to ensure a snug fit. A custom branded insole features a split graphic of the Liberty Bell to represent perseverance.

“We are excited to kick off a series of partnerships with UBIQ through the launch of the UBIQ x Brooks “Liberty” Chariot which perfectly combines the 100-year history of Brooks with Philadelphia’s iconic Liberty Bell,” said Shane Downey, Heritage Creative Director and Business Manager. “Having reigned as one of the most popular running shoes of the eighties, the Brooks Chariot is a pillar of the Brooks Heritage Collection just as the original signing of the Declaration of Independence is a pillar of America’s freedom.”
