Father's Day Gifts 2021
Don't leave Dad hanging for Father's Day! Check out our top 6 picks here:
Hyperice Vyper 2.0
Foam rollers are the classic recovery tool for runners. The Hyperice Vyper takes the concept of rolling to the next level with high intensity vibration. The vibration is shown to be twice as effective as normal foam rolling, reducing muscle soreness and increasing flexibility and circulation.
Speed Hound ProPerformance Recovery System
The Speed Hound recovery boots use an air pressure system to provide an at-home recovery massage. They’ve been FDA approved as a medical device to reduce muscle soreness and swelling. They’re also lightweight and easy to clean, making them the perfect gift for an athletic dad who loves some couch recovery time. Use code SMM6 for $45 off.
Garmin Instinct Solar
This is one of Garmin’s most rugged smartwatches. 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 to give a high performance, durable gift at a reasonable price, check out this watch.
The Whoop band continuously collects in-depth metrics that you can analyze from your phone. These metrics go beyond step count and heart rate monitoring; rather, you get analysis of recovery, strain and sleep that allow you to optimize training. Our staff has been testing it for weeks and the results are surprisingly accurate. It tells us when we need to sleep and recover as well as when we need to step on the gas with our training. Whoop is offering our readers $30 off at the link below.
Brooks Ghost 13
The Brooks Ghost 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 soft cushioning, but plenty of spring. It won’t break the bank like a carbon-plated shoe and it’s available on Amazon. Check it out as a gift for a runner dad that needs a shoe upgrade.
New Balance Men’s 624
Are you really a dad without these shoes? These shoes paired with jean shorts, a belt and a white polo guarantee the best results for mowing the lawn and throwing down on the grill. Jokes aside, these trainers provide great support for mixed activities and are affordable and durable, making them a perfect gift for dad.
