Nike, Adidas, Champion, Puma – All of these brands and more have been by athlete’s sides during times of hard work, crossing finishes lines, defeats, and victories. Which brands do you stand by? We want to know who gets your vote. Take our poll below!
We’ve also done our own research to find qualities to look for in the perfect running shoe, well fitting yoga pants, and jackets that do more than you’d expect!
- Check your arches and make sure your running shoe is a good fit for your specific needs. Do you have high arches? Are you flat footed? Support what you’ve got properly.
- Ensure a good fit. You don’t want your shoes to fit too tight as this can cause your foot to do wonky things in the shoe. Give your toes a little breathing space.
- Ask your chiropractor or pediatrist to examine your feet before you buy. This will help you learn what your specific feet need to thrive!
Perfect fit for Pants
- When participating in Yoga and Pilates, you’ll want pants that move with you to avoid uncomfortable or embarrassing situations. Always try on the pants in many styles until you find a fit you like and fits your body type specifically.
- Choose a drawstring pant if you like to have more security.
- Materials make a huge difference. Consider lycra, a highly flexible fabric that bounces back easily. Cotton is a good alternate choice if you tend to sweat.
Jackets that Jive
- When it comes to shirts and jackets you may want to consider a wicking fabric. This fabric pulls sweat away from the body. Polyester lycra blends are great fibers for this quality.
- Don’t forget to size up for layering. Especially when working out in colder climates!
- There are a lot of great technologies that are now incorporated into clothing.
- Look for jackets with iPod/mp3 hidden storage to keep you tunes going as you run!
- Reflective fabrics can keep you safe on early morning or late night runs.
- Some fabrics have built-in UV refactors to help keep you safe from harmful rays with no chemicals.
