Vans x Karl

 

 

There are too many sport x fashion mash-ups to report about on a regular basis, so you know that when we do it’s because it’s BIG… as big as Vans x KARL LAGERFELD! The iconic skate and sneaker brand Vans, meets its couture match in a capsule collection of 12 classic styles, reinterpreted by none other than the fashion house of Karl Lagerfeld.

The Vans x KARL LAGERFELD collection features both footwear and apparel rendered in Lagerfeld’s preferred palette of black and white, distinctive quilted leather, and of course that Chanel boucle — referencing the unmistakable Vans checkerboard design. The sneakers include six interpretations of Vans Classics, such as the SK8-Hi, Old Skool, and Classic Slip-On. Apparel offerings include a t-shirt and sweatshirt with the Vans x KARL LAGERFELD logo, along with a t-shirt featuring an image of Karl Lagerfeld wearing a checkerboard tie.

Converse x Carhartt WIP

 

CONVERSE X CARHARTT WIP CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STARS

We love a good mash-up, and the collaboration between these two venerable brands might be one of our all time favorites. The Converse x Carhartt WIP collection features three Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70s Ox sneakers, each style utilizing the classic workwear-inspired Carhartt WIP fabrics of Tiger Camo Ripstop, White Drill, and Hamilton Duck Canvas. Bringing the utilitarian Carhartt influence to the iconic Converse All Star silhouette, the collection highlights everyday wearability and quality craftsmanship.

Converse and Carhartt are two heritage brands rich in both sports history and American culture. The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star, introduced in 1932, is the original basketball shoe, and Carhartt, founded in 1889 was one of the first American companies to pioneer workwear in the USA. Carhartt WIP tailors the company’s core product design to a new consumer who values the brand’s origins while looking for a more modern design and fit. Converse x Carhartt WIP collection perfectly integrates both brands’ distinct culture and aesthetic.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), CrossFit, and Boot Camps have become some of the most popular workouts, providing maximal results in minimal time, and proven to offer continual calorie and fat burning benefits even after the workout is done. Based on the concept of interval training, periods of highly strenuous activity are alternated with easier recovery periods. The cardiovascular benefits are the heart rate is kept high as the body stays in motion, rotating exercises and targeting different muscle groups throughout the workout. 

Classes at favorite studios like Barry’s Bootcamp, Orange Theory and others we reviewed in the 31 Days of Fitness, combine treadmill and rowing intervals with explosive plyometric and power moves, multi-directional floorwork, and weight bearing exercises. They require the agility and support of a training shoe with the cushioning and traction of a running shoe.

Here are 6 versatile hybrids, for men and women, we think hit the mark for all your training needs — ready to take on any workout with style!

2 Runners, 5 Shoes

 
TWO RUNNERS: SARAH & CLAUDIA

 
Looking for a little motivation to get you out on the road? How about a new pair of running shoes! We asked Nike, Asics, Newton, Hoka, and Brooks to send us their top picks for a lightweight neutral trainer. Since different runners like different shoes, I invited Sarah Toland, co-author of Lindsay Vonn’s recently published book, Strong Is The New Beautiful, and a 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier in the 5K and 10K, to road test these running shoes with me. She’s a tall and lanky gazelle of a runner, while I’m shorter and more compact in my running style  — what Sarah describes as “a recreational marathoner with zeal”. My goal is simply to get from point A to point B. Hers is to do it fast! Here are two different runners thoughts on five of the newest top trainers:

NIKE LUNARGLIDE 8 $120

Nike says: The LunarGlide 8 offers breathable support and exceptionally soft cushioning to help you glide through your longest runs. Engineered mesh provides comfortable breathability while Flywire technology adapts to your foot for a secure fit. The soft, contoured Lunarlon midsole has precision-lasered cuts on the sides that collapse during footstrike to help you reach a smoother stride. A dynamic support platform adds comfortable, lightweight stability without weighing you down.

Sarah says: I loved how the Lunarglide fit my narrow foot and offered a great combination of a firm feel and well-cushioned ride. I wish it was a bit more springy and responsive, otherwise it might be my favorite out of all those we tested.  Read More
