Does your bestie or sister need some new gear? Maybe you need a gift for the most important person in your life (YOU!). Either way, we’ve found some of the best winter gear to get you through the season feeling fit and looking fly.[starting from top right and going clockwise]
Tracksmith Prospect Beanie, light blue, $38. Keep their noggins warm with this cushy and comfy hat, named after our favorite local Brooklyn park. It’s snug enough for runs and cute enough for date night. Made from Merino, this topper will wick without any annoying itchiness.
Tracksmith Brighton Base Layer in yellow, $88. MVP—that’s how essential this base layer is. Warm and wicking and just the right amount of snug, we suggest starting their collection with this lovely marigold one and building on it yearly. Did we mention that it doesn’t get stinky even when it’s soaked with sweat?
Nux Metro Backpack in white, $86. This pack is perfect for the friend who likes to fit in a mid-day sweat session, but doesn’t want to cramp her style. This vegan leather backpack has a water-resistant lining and an interior laptop pocket so she can fit in some work after her spin sesh. We love how the quilted pattern looks in this dreamy white, but it also comes in black.
Pro Compression Marathon socks in pink argyle, $50. Made in the USA from a proprietary (and machine-washable) blend of nylon and poly materials, these fun socks feature graduated compression to keep your feet and legs feeling fresh mile after mile. Get a pair for your training partner or that friend who needs an extra spring in her step.
Brooks Levitate 2 Running Shoes, $150. If the glove-like fit of this springy shoe isn’t enough to make them fall in love, the faux-suede Achilles Guard will make them melt. It cradles your Achilles tendon in softness, protecting it from irritation. The DNA AMP midsole helps provide energy return to keep you moving forward. And that silver flash on the midsole—that just looks hella cool.
FitVine Prosecco, $19.99. It’s nice to celebrate all your hard work, but you don’t want to be out of commission to train the day after. That’s why we’re big fans of FitVine. They use a proprietary fermentation process to lower the sugar level in their wines to a minimum. That process also boosts the antioxidant level and reduces the sulfites in the bottle. That might mean you and your mates can enjoy an extra glass of bubbly and still make it to boot camp feeling energized. This sparkler is crisp, with notes of green apple and tropical flowers. Bring a bottle to your next girls’ night in.
