HYPE: This Season’s New Running Shoes & Gears

Its the new season and as usual, all the major sporting apparels and brands are coming out with their latest gadgets, gizmos and gears! With really exciting major races coming up such as the Adidas KOTR, Nike We Run Singapore (happening in September-October period), Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore and also the likes of Singapore G1,  NEA 10th Anniversary Charity Run/Walkathon and the National Day Run, one can expect to don on new gears to boost your running experience.

Add flava, add colour, add style. 

Well scroll down below to check out my Top 6 shoes and gears coming your way this season.

1) Adidas adizero Feather 2

On a technology side, the adiZero Feather 2 features the SPRINTFRAME platform directly attached to the upper which ensures optimum forefoot propulsion. It significantly saves shoe weight while maintaining important performance characteristics, such as comfort and energy transfer. Fully integrated in the SPRINTFRAME platform is the TORSION SYSTEM which allows independent movement of fore- and rearfoot.

The adiZero Feather 2 for both men and women is available at selected retailers and adidas Sport Performance Stores with a retail price of SGD$179.

2) New Balance 3090 aka NB IONIX

A lightweight everyday running shoe with a plush, underfoot feel with enhanced flexibility and comfort.

The Minimus Ionix 3090 is retailing for $155.00. Available at all New Balance Concept Stores and authorised retailers.

3) Nike LunarGlide+ 4 

LunarGlide+ 4 dynamic support reduces pronation – perfect for over-pronators. And still incorporates a soft underfoot feel to give an improved transition and ride.
You can try on these Lunar babies at all Nike outlets around Singapore!

Paired the LunarGlide+ 4 with the Nike GPS Watch (see below), runners will be treated to an unparalleled running experience. Also check out #GameOnWorld on Twitter for Nike’s latest movement. 

4) Columbia Women’s Kambi™ & Men’s Tango Thong

Columbia Women’s Kambi™ (left) &  the Men’s Tango Thong (right). Omni-Grip® provides the right grip for every environment. Designed advanced traction solutions for the trail, hiking, winter, and water in order to ensure outdoor stability, no matter where your adventures take you.

Retailing at $99, the Tango Thong is available at all Columbia stores (MBS and Velocity @ Novena Square), selected World of Sports and World of Outdoors stores.

5) Nike+ SportWatch GPS

Run Reminders: Users get automatic reminders from the watch when a run has 
not been logged in the past five days. :O
Runners can then upload their run data to the Nikeplus.com website, where new mapping features allow them to see where they ran and find great new routes, track their goals, receive coaching tips, challenge their friends, share their progress through Facebook and Twitter.

Estimated cost: $265. Also do check out the NIKE+ FUELBAND. And the latest Nike Innovation+ coming right up! Watch this space!

6) Columbia OMNI-FREEZE ICE Baselayer tee

Intense training + extreme perspiration = discomfort? Not with the Omni-Freeze. Cooling sensation troughout the “flame freeze-triathlon” held at Celebrity Fitness. And though it was soaking mid way through the ordeal, within minutes, I was dry again, ready for more.
