The Armoire Assistant: Brooks Has Got a Brand New Bag

The legendary Brooks Adrenaline just got a total makeover!

We’ve been hearing talk about Brooks changing the stability shoe game for months now — talk about the miracle, the myth, the legend of a stability shoe being totally re-imagined — and now it’s here! The Brooks Adrenaline 19 has LANDED, and it’s better than ever!

When your adrenaline is high…

Asics Graphic Muscle Tank (Heather Grey)
On Weather Jacket (Navy/Storm)

What’s the hype about? For one, Brooks has brought their GuideRails stability system to their most popular stability shoe for the first time. Taking attention off the foot itself for a hot second, these GuideRails are touching down to protect your knees (and beyond) by keeping any excess motion down in the ankles and feet in check!

The BioMoGo DNA foam underfoot is now joined by a layer of plush DNA Loft foam in the heel, making this classic even more comfortable. So, let’s make sure we stay comfortable all over! We’re diving into both Asics’ and New Balance’s training lines here to keep you situated and cool on your run, be it indoors or outdoors! This Graphic Muscle Tank by Asics has a soft, brushed exterior that’ll wick moisture from the front and back while allowing ample air to hit you under arm and along your rib cage. The cinched waist will hold it in place so you don’t have to constantly be fussing with it in the middle of your workout!

New Balance’s training line, like their footwear, is all about form and function. These Impact Crops have a mid-compressive fabric mixed with mesh and an engineered knit at the knee to hold you in on the go, while the waistband will hold you in place where you favor the most support. Even on the hanger, you can see the unique, body-contouring shape this legging takes even before it’s on the body!

Speaking of shape, if you’re in the market this holiday season for a jacket you can seriously live in year round, look no further than On’s Weather Jacket. You can thank some seriously featherweight fabrics from Japan for allowing this piece to feel weightless while withstanding the elements, with its tear-free fabric up top and it’s DWR-treated fabric down below. We’ve sported our very own on several long runs and wow, does it deliver in performance and style!

…and how to keep it that way!

Goodr Running Sunglasses (Nessy’s Midnight Orgy)

Is that our hot date with destiny we hear rolling up alongside us on a Friday night? Or are we just remembering to charge our Garmin 235 before tomorrow AM’s trail run? Whatever the case, this look will transport you from day to date instantly!

What we’re loving about Vimmia’s entire line of Isle pieces is that they are INSANELY light in weight but not in coverage! They’re testing the boundaries with some more avant garde styles (like the Ruffle Sleeve Top and the Ladder Tank), but also playing it classic with this Double V Tee.

This top can totally be French tucked into those New Balance Crops after your workout or worn with your favorite pair of high-waisted Paige denim jeans. Complete the look with a flashy but still functional piece like this Vimmia Strobe Bomber. Its material falls loosely on the body to wick moisture away from you if needed, and its exterior is bright and shiny (not reflective, but uh, hard to miss) so you’ll catch the eye of passing cars at night! We’re considering this to be a “can’t live without” piece for all your holiday parties too, so get it while it’s hot (and cold out).

Fashionable & Fast,

Your Armoire Assistant
