With such amazing weather this summer, it is easy to get out and about outside. A few weeks ago I attended a fashion preview at the Brooks Running Headquarters in Fremont. A bright sunny evening was the perfect backdrop to browsing the newest styles at Brooks. Guests were greeted with a tour of corporate headquarters, followed by a fashion presentation of key fall 2015 styles, and an opportunity to shop.
I always knew Brooks as a quality running shoe brand, but little did I know they had an awesome selection of clothing, workout gear and sports bras. Brooks focuses on creating essential gear for runners, not the average consumer. This is evident in the quality fabrics, and practical styles that work overtime to keep you comfortable.
From neon brights to jewel-tones, punched-up color palettes were seen all over the collection. I picked out a few items in a mix-and-match set which have been on major rotation – a few highlights noted below:
The Pick Up Tank is cut longer than most workout tanks, and the lightweight moisture-wicking fabric keeps you dry even during the most strenuous workouts.
Brooks’ Streaker Capri has a tummy-hugging panel for extra support. Hidden details like a discreet key-pocket make these fashionable yet practical.
You should have no trouble finding the perfect sports bra. I have been loving the Moving Comfort Uprise Crossback – in a matching print, offers amazing support and comfort. Tip: Brooks has bra fit specialists to help you find your perfect fit.
The store at headquarters (or online at BrooksRunning.com) offers a plethora of running shoes to fit your needs (Check out their ShoeFinder to see what is right for you). I’ve been putting the PureConnect 4 running shoes to the test. Perfect for a run and just as suitable for a long walk or beach stroll, the PureConnect 4 is lightweight and hugs to your foot. Running in Brooks’ PureConnect series adds a little lift to your step.
Can we talk about the Heritage Collection? Think old-school kicks done up in seasonally fashionable colors and materials. I was obsessed with the heritage sneakers and am definitely putting these on my shopping list.
