Lady Liberty On the Run

 

 

It’s Marathon weekend here in NYC and to commemorate this always epic event, Saucony has released a special limited edition of their Freedom ISO running shoe. The NYC Freedom ISO celebrates the 2017 NYC Marathon and the iconic symbol of New York City, The Statue of Liberty, in all her green patina glory. Available for both men and women in slightly different hues, the NYC Freedom ISO features Saucony’s full-length EVERUN™ midsole, noted for delivering continuous cushioning throughout your run, no matter the distance.

The NYC Freedom ISO features Saucony’s dynamic ISOFIT™ system and a breathable mesh upper, with engineered overlays embellished in a liberty-green metallic glow. The sole is speckled with copper-colored flecks, reminiscent of Lady Liberty’s original copper-brown hue, and shiny copper covers the lace tips. The outsole displays her signature torch. Other details include an imprint of her crown on the sockliner, and NYC is printed on the heel tab.
 


 
This special edition shoe also honors runner Ryan Shay, who tragically passed away 10 years ago during the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in NYC’s Central Park. Saucony has made a donation to The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc, in his memory, and The Saucony family continues to honor Shay’s life with an annual private sunrise run during NYC Marathon weekend that finishes at Ryan Shay’s memorial bench in Central Park.

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate NYC, its marathon, and a very special runner with this awesome running shoe that delivers a winning combination of enhanced energy return and continuous cushioning from your first step to your last.

The NYC Freedom ISO is now available at www.saucony.com.

 

Time For A SUPgrade

 

 

If you’ve been into Stand Up Paddleboarding for a while now — preferring the serene waters of the bay or lake over ocean waves, but still riding a traditional surfboard shaped SUP — it might be time to graduate to a race or touring board. With a nose shaped more like a kayak, called a “displacement hull”, these sleek and streamlined boards are designed to go fast and straight, cutting though choppy waters and gliding with ease.

Touring boards are generally more stable and are wider than race boards, designed for recreational paddlers, while race boards tend to be narrower, designed for more advanced and competitive paddlers. Touring boards come in a variety of different lengths, while race boards are either 12’6 or 14 ft. 

As we kick off the second half of the summer and head into those beautiful fall months ahead, here are 6 of our favorite race and touring boards to take your paddling to the next level.

CLICK BOARD FOR SHOPPING INFO:

 

FROM LEFT: BARK CONTENDER LITE PRO ELITE 12’6. Joe Bark is one of the most respected paddleboard designers, and more races have been won on Bark boards than any other brand. The new Bark Contender Lite is a reflection of the shift in design towards lower-volume, narrower boards. It’s fast and responsive, and the ideal choice for the experienced paddler looking for the playfulness of a lower-volume 12’6″ board that can handle any variety of conditions.

STARBOARD ALL STAR CARBON 2017. The Starboard All Star has long dominated the racing scene. Available in 12’6 or 14′ and a variety of widths, it offers performance, comfort and stability with its recessed deck and tri-concave bottom.  The All Star comes in a more expensive lightweight carbon sandwich construction that flexes with each stroke, or a hybrid carbon that’s slightly heavier, but more durable. Flat water, choppy, or in the surf, it’s a versatile favorite in any condition.

From a colorful titanium spork to a stainless steel kettle to a folding bamboo table, these products are so simple and lovely, you might even be tempted to use them at home.

This summer, an exclusive collection of Snow Peak gear is being featured in a special shop-in-shop at select REI stores and online at REI.com. The Snow Peak Camp Couch, Tortue Shelter Tent, Jikaro Firering Table, Folding Chair, and Li Baja Burner Camp Stove, are just a few of the items included.

With great acclaim from the fashion and outdoor industries, Snow Peak is creating a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts… even if they are only traveling as far as the backyard… or the nearest REI.
