Long one of our favourite brands, and ubiquitous in the running world—trusted, innovative and synonymous with quality and ethics—New Balance manufactures a brilliant selection of winter gear, both for style, and for your workouts. As we enter our last week of holiday shopping, iRun is pleased to present the New Balance Gift Guide for Runners, quality gifts we are proud to recommend.
Fresh Foam X Hierro v7 GTX
With a Vibram mega-grip outsole and Fresh Foam cushioning, these amazing winter warriors are excellent both on roads and in the trails. There’s superior traction on slippery surfaces and the waterproof, breathable membrane offers cozy toe protection. Available in multiple widths and orthotic-friendly, hard to picture the runner in Canada who wouldn’t appreciate these beneath their tree. Click here for details.
Dry moisture wicking material and anatomically-friendly construction makes these ankle socks a no-brainer for any runner. Besides, who doesn’t need socks this time of year? Click here, and please dig.
Don’t sleep on the New Balance line of athleisure-wear. The brand has emerged as fashion-forward and there’s no better example than their flat knit street-style hats, available in multiple colours.
New Balance has multiple genderless lines available and this pink hoodie sweatshirt never fails to elicit raves when worn on a Saturday night. Again: if you only know New Balance for their 880 sneakers, look again at the brand: this is no longer a dad joke company. Stand out, by clicking here.
