Salomon Park t-shirt

The future of footwear design, especially in the upper part of the shoe, is what you will find in the Speedform Apollo shoes from Under Armor. Finding its way in the super-lightweight category, the simple design is stripped out like any racing seat in a sportscar. But you get nice performance from a rebound sole which is thin and loaded with 8mm of heel to toe.

HIT: Weight (light). Form fitting.

KNOCK: Sole grip in wet weather might be of 
concern outdoors.

Salomon Park Tee

What's really impressive about a favourite running t-shirt is the comfort of the fabric. The Park Tee, available in male and female styles and colours, is exceptionally comfortable. For added carrying capacity­-a small zipper pocket is featured. The shirt fits a little on the small side and comes with reflective logos and flattened seams.

Pros: Very comfortable and fast drying Clima fabric.

Cons: Price. Size runs small.

Verdict: A very natural feeling, comfortable sports and casual tee.

Puma Performance Midweight Socks 2 pack

You can put up to 4 times your bodyweight on your feet when running. If you calculate this figure

By anyone running long distances the numbers are incredible. This is why Puma have included subtle padding under the ball of the foot and heel in the Performance socks. The fabric is 'mid-weight' meaning not thin nor thick, almost the perfect balance. What sets these apart is the lovely firm elastic arch support.

Pros: Coolmax ® fabric and extremely comfortable fit.

Cons: Availability.

Verdict: Excellent 
value and perfectly 
balanced for running.
