Team WR picks its favorite summer fitness gear for August 2017.
Funky Running Fun
It’s all fun and games until…well, running is always fun and games with these products celebrating our sport in refreshing ways!
YogiRu Cliché Leggings, $79
YogiRu is a new brand of yoga apparel that features the work of artists, and the Cliché leggings, based on an oil-and-gold-leaf painting by California artist Carolyn Brann, are perfect for the new runner. Her painting is inspired by the feelings that arise when you start falling in love.
Funktional Wearables Angelina, $36
Let us guess—you love your fitness tracker and wear it all the time. Good for you! It’s also fun to sport some shiny bling, and the Angelina from Funktional Wearables lets you do just that, without missing a step. This hammered silver bracelet securely hides the Fitbit Flex or Flex 2 so you can dance the night away in style, while counting every calorie you burn.
Sarah Marie Design Studios Infant Bodysuit, $25
Let your tiniest fan show her support with this adorable (and very funny) onesie from Sarah Marie Design Studios. Available in sizes 3 to 24 months, the 100 percent cotton design will keep your baby cozy in or out of the jogging stroller. We have an affinity for My Mom Is Fast AF, but if you don’t want to deal with “Mommy, what does AF mean?” other styles like Putting the “Ma” in Marathon are available too.
ThinkSport Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+, $24 For 6 Oz.
The dog days of summer call for a sunscreen that works, smells decent and doesn’t include a lot of harmful chemicals. ThinkSport’s Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+ checks all those boxes and offers the highest SPF available in a ’screen. And it’s been editor tested—it does not come off in water!
Matador NanoDry Shower Towel, $35
Summer running fun usually involves plenty of sweat and water—be it from a refreshing swim, soaking feet in a cold mountain stream or getting caught in the rain. Regular towels are rather bulky to keep handy when you’re on the go. The portability and quick-dry absorbency make the Matador NanoDry Shower Towel ideal for keeping in your sports bag or even your purse. Not only does it pack small, but it’s also big enough to wrap around you for quick changes.
LipSense Lip Kit, $55
An easy way to add a little color to your post-run routine is with a fun shade on the lips. The LipSense Lip Kit has a ton of color options, comes with a gloss for added shine and will not wear off once you hit lunch hour. And for those wanting a little extra pucker power, the kit also comes with a lip plumper, making that feature a little more full.
Ban.do No Bad Days Swimsuit, $99
Our favorite swimsuit look is a sports bra and shorts combo that transitions seamlessly from a summer beachside run to a post-workout dip in the surf. However, this is a close second. Fun, easy and full of positive vibes, the Ban.do No Bad Days Swimsuit is an instant classic.
Aquinnah Jewelry Giraffe Love Necklace, $45
Named after the artist’s favorite place on Martha’s Vineyard, Aquinnah Jewelry is a celebration of rustic beauty and vintage vibes with its unique designs. The Giraffe Love Necklace is a fun piece for any runner with a wild side and love for the graceful movement of this large animal—and that of a runner, of course!
Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals, $99
Ah, a customized fit—the best thing for a runner to hear. That’s exactly what the new Wiivv Custom Fit Sandals deliver. Download the Wiivv app and snap a few pictures of your feet. Then you choose your strap and arch cover to be paired with your custom-fit, 3D-printed arches for all-day support.
