Andy Zalan, one of the organizers of last year’s Cycle Messenger World Championships which took place this time out in Guatemala, has written a piece for the 2011 Brooks Bugle about the experience.
This is how things stand. Last year’s collaborative project with Vans was a ride-away success. The limited edition of two thousand leather skateboard shoes produced under our joint auspices would appear to have already found close on one thousand pairs of feet to call ‘home’.
It’s been quite a week for Brooks in the German capital, and today marks our final session in the halls of Bread and Butter, at the iconic surrounds of what was formerly Tempelhof Airport.
It’s Day Two of one of the world’s most well-thought-of fashion trade fairs, the winter installment of Bread and Butter, and Brooks has really put on a show of strength this time out, sending its finest minds and lithest bodies to Berlin in order that anybody within shouting distance of Tempelhof Airport should know about the new bags and clothing items in our portfolio for 2011.
Later this week, Bread and Butter, the trade fair for all things sartorial will once again be convening its winter show in Berlin. Consequently, as these words are being written an ever-steadier trickle is mutating into a veritable bank-bursting flood of handsome, thoughtful, well-dressed people of both sexes flowing into the German capital to take up all premium bed spaces available until after the coming weekend.
Brooks is showing at the world renowned Bread and Butter fashion trade fair in Berlin next week. And as the thoughts of the excited personnel chosen to represent the company there turn slowly to the task of packing their bags, they find themselves immediately tossed on the horns of a treacle-sticky dilemma.
Which bag to pack?

Bread and Butter isn’t just a great accompaniment to a plate of fish and chips. It also happens to be the name of one of the world’s premier trade fairs for the fashion business.
About two months ago, we began to “wet our feet” in the perennial subject all cyclists of inclement weather face: How to keep oneself warm and dry in wet and cold weather- with special attention to one’s feet.
