Early Black Friday Deals
We love Black Friday, but hopefully we don’t see frantic crowds fighting their way into Best Buy amidst a huge spike in the pandemic. So whether you miss fighting with strangers over a $60 flat-screen TV or not, we recommend shopping online this year. And sure enough, online retailers are already hitting us with huge discounts. This guide is the best early Black Friday deals we could find for runners. Check them out here:
Brooks Ghost 12
The Brooks Ghost 12 is a favorite for runners who like grinding out miles. It’s the perfect comfortable long-run shoe because of the DNA LOFT foam, which has excellent shock-absorption. The shoe retails for $130, but you can get it for under $100 on Dicks Sporting Goods through Black Friday.
Garmin Instinct Solar
This is Garmin’s most rugged smartwatch. It features continuous solar charging for vastly extended battery life, waterproofing up to 100 meters, and construction that meets Military Standard 810 (combat-ready) for thermal and shock resistance. If you want a durable, high-performance watch at a fair price point, this is the product for you.
Nike Zoom Pegasus Turbo 2
The Pegasus is Nike’s iconic workhorse trainer. With the Turbo 2, Nike took the classic high-mileage trainer and made it race-worthy with Zoom foam and a lightweight upper. If you want a shoe you can use for both weekly runs and race day, try out the Peg Turbo. Jackrabbit has it pretty heavily discounted:
These inserts are pretty cheap and allow you to customize any pair of running shoes with a variety of options. The insoles range from the Comfort Max, which provides a very cushy feel, to the Comfort Thin, which adds support and comfort with minimal material. They’re all 25% off here:
Nike Reach Infinity Run Flyknit
Nike designed the React Infinity shoe to prevent injuries, and they backed it up with an independent study, which stated the shoe reduced injuries by 52%. The shoe features React foam and a rocker-profiled bottom to provide a smooth ride. Most colors are on sale here:
Swift Running Pants
These running pants check all of the boxes, with great sweat-wicking fabric, perforations for cooling, and a stretchy waistband. They’re a great item to add to your wardrobe as temperatures drop. And best of all, they’re more than 50% off on Jackrabbit.
