Runner Gifts Series: Steve’s Wish List


Nike Dri-Fit Knit 1/2 zip $110

Almost too fly to sweat in, this well-crafted garment is great as base or mid-layer, but is also easily worn as a causal top for a laid back look. Nike’s signature Dri-fit fabric meets body-mapping in this versatile half-zip, ensuring that the body stays warm, temperature stays regulated, and our sweatiest parts have the most ventilation. The seamless knit promises a chafe-free workout, and added reflectivity ensures that safety and comfort go hand in hand. This particular piece runs on the snug side intentionally, to ensure that sweat is caught and quickly dries. So, if looking to add layers beneath the coveted “DFK” (as we say), be sure to size up!


Yurbuds Earbuds $30

Developed specifically for athletes, yurbuds are made with their patented TwistLock™ technology that secure into place for a fit that never falls out, even when working towards peak performance. The silicone caps that set the buds apart from other headphones on the market are ergonomically designed to avoid overly sensitive parts of the ears and allow for ambient noise to trickle through – a key component in making this the most comfortable and safe listening devices on the market. As if that wasn’t enough, most users wind up listening to their music at nearly half the volume, due to the slight extension into the ear canal that funnels quality sound from 15mm drivers more directly than over-the-ear headphones.


Adidas Energy Boost $150

These aren’t just awesome because they’re lightweight (although 9.5oz is pretty impressive!); they’re awesome because they make you want to run fast. Period. Made with Adidas’ innovative Boost™ midsole, these shoes are designed to give back. The energy-return from each step makes for a great and responsive everyday trainer, and an ideal racing shoe for any distance. The upper is made to be flexible, and allows for natural foot movements and accommodation of a wide variety of foot shapes – all without compromising the overall durability and support of the shoe.
