It’s hotter than a Bikram yoga studio out, so we know that thinking of fall may seem a bit weird right now. But, guys, we got to see some of the new Brooks Running fall line, and, well …
It is that cute and that just … well, smart. Yes — disclosure — we are a Brooks Running blog ambassador, so we’re clearly big Brooks fans, but even if we weren’t, we’d still be smitten with this stuff. Because, year after year, Brooks strikes just that perfect balance of creating gear that looks awesome but also performs beautifully with thoughtful details that are darn near life-changing (and definitely run-changing!). Here are a few pieces from the new Brooks Running fall line that we are in L-O-V-E with.
Go-To Capri ($65)
Talk about an appropriate name. These will become your want-to-wear-it-all-day-every-day capris. Soft and stretchy without feeling restrictive or stretching too far out with repeated use, these are the running capris you’ll want multiple pairs of. They have a lined gusset so you can go commando (or not, whatever you prefer!) and have a flat waistband with a stretch drawcord for the perfect comfy fit. Oh, and they have two pockets … because pockets are awesome. Comes in black, navy and the fun sangria color you see above!
Streaker Short Sleeve ($55)
I know $55 seems pricey for a T-shirt. But this is truly a performance shirt. And it feels amazing on. Odor-resistant and seamless (yes, no seams, people), it won’t chafe you or leave you smelling. Plus, it’s hella comfy. Nice and long, forgiving in the midsection, and with slightly longer sleeves than most short-sleeved shirts, it’s got more coverage than a lot of other running shirts. It also has a really pretty design, right? Like the capris, you can get the top in the blue color pictured above, along with black/gray or pink.
Joyride Hoodie ($125)
Oh, how we love us a good hoodie, and this hoodie is one of those jackets that transitions perfectly from your run to brunch or coffee. It’s super soft, super cool looking and made of a super awesome Merino wool blend that naturally wicks away moisture, stops odors and helps you regulate your body temperature. Plus, um, it’s got thumbholes, a fitted hood (if you’ve never tried a fitted hood before, believe us, it’s a game-changer!) a place for your headphones and pockets. This hoodie comes in white, gray and a really pretty light blue.
Joyride Pant ($95)
The Joyride Pant is back and we love it as much as we did last year’s version. A little funky and a lot awesome, this pant is just cool. With those wide side slash pockets, a wide flat waist and fun ribbed cuffs, it’s the most fashion forward of any of the new pieces, but it also boasts more of that awesome performance Merino wool blend. Great for a run, lounging around the house or just running errands around town and looking awesome. Comes in the color you see above (which we love).
All of these will available on the Brooks Running site in early July. They may be for fall but they’re hot, hot, hot! —Jenn
