Are you looking for a gift for a runner this holiday season? Let our runners help you out! With a variety of runners in spanned across 4 seasons, we have the plenty of knowledge on what's best when hitting the concrete.
We asked our CRew to share the best gifts to give to runners this holiday season. The gifts they would GIVE are products that have tried before and think that other runners should check them out. The gifts they would RECEIVE are their wish list items to complete their ultimate running kit. Hopefully Santa is out there reading this!
First up is Season 3 runner, Loree @Itsloreeeee:
To Give: Nike Pegasus 33
This would make a great gift for a fellow runner because I love this shoe. I own a pair of Pegasus and it's simply one of the best shoes that I have ran in. The comfort as well as the cushion it provides is well suited for all runners. I'm a heavy foot runner myself and I always looks for a shoe that can absorb the impact that I put on my feet when I run and this shoe does that. I go up a half size with running shoes and I suggest doing that with the Pegasus. It is light but not too light where you will feel impact when either the heel or balls of your feet strike the concrete. With many shoes coming out lately, I still recommend getting a pair of Pegasus to add to the rotation.
To Receive: Nike Lunarepic Flyknit Shield
This is on my wish list because I have yet to own anything Flyknit and my running friends say that this shoe is definitely worth it. They love the comfort that the shoe offers as well as the cushion it provides. It comes close to the Pegasus feeling like some of my friends said. As of my last race, which was in the rain... My shoes were soggy, my feet were cold and well, I wasn't in the greatest of mood with wet socks while running a half marathon but I did suck it up and finished. But these shoes are made with the shield protection so in future rainy wet runs, I'd love to be able to get these bad boys to run in.
Stay tuned for more gift ideas!
