Routefit: [route-fit]


1. A set of clothes worn together, typically for a particular purpose… like running!


Runners love getting creative with their workout clothes, but sometimes we all need a bit of fashion guidance. The Brooks apparel team picked out a few outfits perfect for your summer training made of brand new items from our redesigned fall 2015 line. You’ll stay cool in this gear made for the heat, but that layers and transitions perfectly into late summer and early fall. Plus, you’ll rock new style ideal for your 5-miler and post-workout brew with friends.

Brooks Men’s Outfit No. 1

This outfit is made for the runner. The men’s LSD jacket is the most versatile and lightweight jacket in the line, keeping the weather out while minimizing bulk on the run. Pair it with our Streaker Singlet for thermoregulation to maintain ideal running temperature mile after mile. The Sherpa 5” Short is designed with runners insight and includes  three pockets, one with a sweat proof zipper pocket and two side mesh pockets made for items that the runner might need to get to quickly on a run like energy gels. The Surge Crew Sock is our most technical crew sock in the line, made with DriLayer yarns to keep running feet dry no matter how far the distance. And for a plush, neutral ride that will feels like running on clouds, try the Glycerin 13. All in all, this outfit is created for the runner that needs to be ready for any situation the run can through at them.

Brooks Women’s Outfit No. 1

For this lightweight, versatile outfit, start with our lightweight, packable LSD jacket. Created with versatility in mind, the LSD Jacket is windproof and packs into its own pocket so it’s easy to take off mid-run if it heats up. A perfect pairing with thejacket is the Fly-By SS with a blend of our DriLayer Burst and DriLayer woven fabric for odor-resistance and a versatile style. Pull the shirt long for more coverage, or use the fitted, wide bottom band to make the shirt stay put at the ideal length. Under that, try the great Uprise Crossback from the Moving Comfort collection. This bra offers maximum shape with a versatile design and features ideal for the A/B cup bra. While summer lasts, try the Racey 3.5” Short, designed to be a shorter short with a beautiful petal hem to split when the leg really needs it. Our new Power Waistband is a critical feature on this short with its wide, flat, knit construction and two pockets (one sweat-resistant), it slims and stays put without the added bulk of a drawcord. The Blot Reflective Headband is a fully adjustable headband with 360 degrees of reflectivity, designed to hold your hair back and also add visibility in low light conditions. This outfit comes together with our most technical sock the Ravenna Double Tab. The Ravenna sock features our DriLayer moisture management yarns paired with our DriLayer Glide, a yarn created to minimize abrasion. These yarns work together to limit blisters and hot spots while creating a great fitting sock! Paired with the new Ghost 8, these styles will keep you running happy this season.

Brooks Men’s Outfit No. 2

Running is used for more than just exercise, sometimes it ends up being a commuting tool. For runners looking to meet up with friends for coffee but who want to run there, try an outfit like this. The Joyride Sweatshirt is made from our DriLayer Sheepish wool-polyester blend created to keep the runner dry on the run but also look stylish for the after run activities. Wearing the Fly-By SS will not only provide a comfortable layering piece, it will also help limit smell with the odor control provided by our DriLayer Burst fabric. The Sherpa 7” Short is made with the run and everything that comes after in mind. Two side hand pockets with one sweat proof hidden zip pocket on the back right provide tons of storage for everything you’ll need on the run. This outfit is rounded off with the lightest weight sock ever made by Brooks. The Radical Lightweight Sock is made for runners  who don’t care for wearing socks but who need to have the moisture management to keep away blisters and hot spots. Round this outfit out with the Ghost 8 to feel comfortable meeting up with buddies for a run or afterward in this versatile collection.

Brooks Women’s Outfit No. 2

Drinks with friends, a run with the buddies or both? Try this outfit, perfect for either situation. The Fly-By Sweatshirt is a critical style for the lifestyle of a runner. Created with reversible style, this sweatshirt goes from a fun heather look to a sporty color blocked style. The Pick-Up Tank is made with the versatility of the runner’s workouts in mind. We put a fun stripe design on our DriLayer moisture management fabric and developed the piece to be used for the run, yoga or any activity a runner might do. Under that super cute racerback is the Uplift Crossback Bra, which is so comfortable the runner will want to wear it all day. The bra is designed for maximum shape, developed with support for any activity and engineered specifically for C/D-cupped women. Wear the Greenlight Capri no matter the activity or weather with its reversible technology and pattern. For cooler days, wear the solid, brushed side against the skin for maximum warmth and style. If the day is warm, reverse the tight with the slick fabric against the skin to allow for breathable running. Of course, the runner wants to keep her hair out of her face and what better way to get on-and-off-the-run style than with a versatile headband. The Fly-By Headband is made wide for maximum hair holding and style. Round the look out with our most popular sock the Ghost Midweight and the Glycerin 13 for all day comfort no matter what the activity.
