Elevate your summer season with these expertly crafted and season-appropriate gear
Saucony Kinvara 10
Featuring an Everun topsole and a flexible EVA+ midsole for a smooth, energetic ride, the limited edition Kinvara 10 is as supportive as it is breathable, thanks to an engineered mesh upper.
Internal heel pods, a nod to the original Kinvara, comfortably lock the foot down as the runner’s pace ramps up. Because no two feet are alike, enhancements to the Kinvara 10 include Saucony’s newest fit technology Formfit, a 3D-contoured footbed that cradles the foot with three layers of foam for enhanced adaptability and impact absorption.
Adidas Nite Jogger
Following the return of the classic Adidas Nite Jogger sneaker, Adidas Originals offers new iterations of the Nite Jogger model. Drawing elements from its iconic origins, the modernized Nite Jogger silhouette has been designed for both day and night.
Reflective details complete the upper while it is rounded off with a Boost midsole, a durable rubber outsole, and a flurry of new colorways, featuring tonal grays, pastel greens, and eye-catching orange, resulting in a shoe that is elevated for comfort and engineered for night time exploration.
With dangerously hot weather prevailing in the Philippines during summer, we need to make sure we’re well-hydrated at all times. It’s a no-brainer to drink plenty of water but instead of purchasing bottled water every time you feel the thirst (which also isn’t sustainable), your best option is a reusable water bottle like Urbanize’s Hydrapak Stash.
The 1L collapsible and compact stash is 50 percent lighter than a regular hard bottle but large enough to handle all-day hydration, expanding for use and crushing back down for maximum space in your bag.
Cabinzero hip pack
Some of us are inseparable with our bags. They are essential to our daily lives as they keep everything organized. But if you’re someone who doesn’t really need to carry a huge bag, go with something smaller that would safeguard valuables such as wallets, keys, a passport and charger, and other essentials.
The problem is, how can you look good in a small bag? Fanny packs. This has become an obsession in street fashion and there’s no denying how big it has gotten. Our pick is this Cabinzero hip pack, a minimalis yet sophisticated summer accessory available in 12 colors so you can have more options to fit your personal style.
Nike Free RN 5.0 and Flyknit 3.0
In a classic case of innovation, the 2019 Nike Free Running Collection introduces new elements that enable a more barefoot-like feel than previous iterations. The foam cushioning in the new Nike Free midsoles is firmer, flatter, and lower to the ground, delivering greater connection and more natural range of motion than before.
The midsole now features siping along the top and bottom to increase dorsi and plantar flexion. The Nike Free RN 5.0 (P4,995) is 26 percent more flexible and 2mm lower to the ground while the Nike Free RN Flyknit 3.0 (P6,745) is 1mm lower to the ground than the 2018 models.
