No better time for new shoes

Stock up, stack up


Check back next week for even more good stuff


We’re back in the office after quite a bit of traveling, but things might look a little different for the next podcast. Our beloved headquarters is getting a facelift to make life a little easier, and that means videos and podcasts from the comfort of home — feels like the pandemic, eh? Anyway, one thing that isn’t changing is our Running Warehouse picks of the week.

This week, there’s a little bit of everything going on, including some options for both roads and trails. Some shoes, some not-shoes, but all of it is available at Running Warehouse. No matter what we end up choosing, there’s always something to pick up. Our goal is to provide a few new selections each week, so check back real soon if you’re not into this week’s options.

If we’ve reviewed one of our picks, we’ll link it. If not, maybe just trust us. We’d buy all of this gear ourselves if we had an unlimited budget.

NOTE: We earn affiliate revenue from Running Warehouse, so anything you buy helps us keep the lights on.

Women’s Nike Dri-FIT Aeroswift Shorts

Alright, it kind of feels like we’ve picked pieces of Nike’s Aeroswift collection for three weeks in a row at this point, but hear us out. The Swoosh’s top-end apparel is just really good and really lightweight for the heat of summer running. The three-inch split short has just enough flex, and Nike’s light gray color is just dark enough to hide some of that summer sweat.

PRICE: $80

Men’s Topo Athletic Pursuit 2

When switching from shorts to trail shoes, how can you beat what Topo Athletic is making? Honestly, you probably can’t. Tony Post and crew have been creating highly capable low-drop options for life on the wild side, and the Pursuit 2 is no exception. It has an aggressive outsole of Vibram Megagrip lugs with attachment points for gaiters and more on the upper.

PRICE: $145

Women’s Nike Pegasus Trail 5

We’re back to Nike with another option for life on the trails. You probably know just how much Robbe loves the Pegasus Trail, and it’s hard to believe the shoe is already in its fifth generation. This time, it looks like a mix between the road-ready Pegasus 41 and the newly updated Zegama 2, which means that the Pegasus Trail 5 is yet another stunner. I’m not sure how sturdy the massive heel tab looks, but style is style, baby.

PRICE: $150

Ultimate Direction Xodus Vest

Since we seem to be focused on trail running this week, let’s keep it going. Ultimate Direction’s Xodus Vest is a one-size-stores-all option with space up front for soft flasks and tons of pockets spread around the sides. Our reviewers equated it to fitting just a bit like a sports bra, but that pretty much guarantees both support and protection while you’re pounding down the trails.

PRICE: $180

Shop The Vest – Unisex

Women’s Rabbit Speedeez Singlet

Are all of our team members from Maryland? No. Does that really matter? Also no. When you move here, you’re immediately branded with our state flag, and you’re required to wear one branded piece of apparel every day for the rest of your days. Alright, maybe not all of that, but you know that Maryland residents love our flag. Thankfully, the folks at Rabbit do, too, and they’ve introduced a Speedeez Singlet to show off your love for the Old Line State.

PRICE: $65

Men’s Rnnr All Out Singlet

Our last pick for the week feels like a shout-out to a fellow Baltimore-based run club, A Tribe Called Run. They’re all about the bright colors and the exotic patterns, and someone at Rnnr must have heard. The All Out Singlet just dropped in a ton of colors with drippy cheetah print all over, and it’s tough to wear one without feelin’ flat-out fast.

PRICE: $45

  3. To tell the truth, I would like to choose WOMEN’S PATAGONIA HOUDINI JACKET. The Houdini Women’s Hooded Jacket is an ultralight windbreaker for running, cycling, weekend hiking, light trekking and everyday use. The jacket is made of durable and lightweight ripstop nylon that provides wind protection. DWR water-repellent coating for added protection against moisture. The jacket can be worn over a base layer of clothing or lightweight insulations. The hood is easily adjustable with one hand by means of a retractable drawstring at the back of the hood. When secured, it fully retains peripheral vision. Sleeve cuffs with elastic insert. The bottom of the jacket is adjustable with an elastic cord with a lock. The back is rounded and slightly low, it covers the waist during bending over. One chest pocket with zipper. The jacket is very compact, it tucks away into its own chest pocket, which has a loop for hanging the jacket from a backpack. The reflective logo on the chest increases safety at night. The Houdini jacket is a comfortable, compact and lightweight full windbreaker with all the features you need.
