Brooks Dare Crossback Run Bra

Brooks overhauled its design process on how its constructs sports bras for performance-oriented running and found a way to more optimally blend comfort and support. Made from a mix of moisture-wicking nylon and spandex, the Dare Crossback bra has a streamlined, form-fitting design with built-in cups, smartly placed perforations for breathability and a comfortable support band, but no hooks, zips or uncomfortable or unsightly straps. It provides the same level of comfort, style and performance for a range A/B to and C/D sizes, no matter if you’re running, going to yoga or at the gym.

ASICS Gel-Kayano 26

Weight: 11.1 oz. (men’s size 9.0); 9.2 oz. (women’s size 7.0)
Heel-Toe Offset: 10mm

The Kayano has long been known as one of the best-fitting and most comfortable everyday running shoes for overpronating runners with low to flat arches. It’s a classic stability shoe with firmer medial-side foam to help offset a runner’s feet rolling inward upon hitting the ground, but it also provides plenty of cushioning and long-haul comfort thanks to the Gel cushioning units in the heel and forefoot.

New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro v5

Weight: 11.3 ounces (men’s size 9); 9.4 oz. (women’s size 7)

Heel-Toe Offset: 8mm (32mm heel, 24mm forefoot)

Whoever says it doesn’t matter what your trail running shoes look like haven’t worn the latest edition of the Fresh Foam Hierro. This shoe is lit, and we’re not just talking about the eye-catching paint-splatter graphics package. With a cushy and stable Fresh Foam X midsole and a grippy, Vibram Megagrip outsole, the reconfigured Hierro can tackle moderate to intense terrain with aplomb thanks to the sturdy but flexible undercarriage and a reinforced upper that helps ensure a locked-down fit. And yes, we love the slick paint job, too.
