The Armoire Assistant: Pep in Your Step Pre-Summer

The Brooks Ravenna 10 is the training shoe you can’t afford to be without!

The people spoke and Brooks listened! The newest version of the Ravenna is sleeker and faster looking, all while adding their new adaptive GuideRails stability system. The updated midsole has additional foam under the forefoot, making you feel light and cushioned during your next run! Couple this with its built-in bootie that makes it so easy to glide your foot into these shoes, and you’re ready to roll!

A little pep in your step…

On Performance Tee (Navy)
Patagonia Nine Trails Shorts 8” (Black)

Y’all are gearing up for some warmer temps coast to coast, so keeping it simple with your workout look is the way to go. And simplicity in numbers doesn’t mean simplicity in function when it comes to these two brands Derek is rocking during his HIIT workout.

On’s Performance Tee has done just that for the past year across the world — perform. Every tapered edge and seamless fusion is designed to offer you coverage and comfort without foregoing an awesome, tailored fit. You can depend on a super fast dry feeling, so when you do take your workout indoors, you don’t have to worry about walking out of it looking like a drowned rat.

While Patagonia got its roots in the outdoor retail world, they have made leaps and bounds in the run specialty world almost as quickly. Their Nine Trails short is 8 inches long, giving you the coverage you want without adding too much weight. They also come with a lightweight and moisture-wicking recycled polyester boxer-brief liner with permanent odor control, providing odor-free, chafe-free comfort.

You can stash just about anything between their two side pockets, back zippered pocket, and side pockets that have room for a smartphone and much much more. Hell, you can pack a liquid lunch in your Ultimate Direction bottle and then pack these pockets full of gels or electrolyte tablets.

Vuori Ponte Performance Short (Black)
On Performance Tee
Janji ½ Zip Transit Midlayer (Marine)

You Ravenna’d, you ran, you conquered. Now it’s time to conquer that couch, you’ve earned it! First ingredient is Vuori’s Ponto Performance Short, which they’ve deemed as “quite possibly the only short you’ll ever need.” It’s giving all those other workout-to-lounge shorts a run for their money!

With their technical but totally smooth brushed jersey fabric, their plush adjustable waistband and roomy side pockets, you’ll be lounging up a storm both during and after your workout. You can keep that On Performance Tee as your base layer — by the time you change, it’ll be totally dry under this incredible Janji ½ Zip Transit Midlayer from their Cambodia collection.

This jacket’s mock-neck combined with a semi-elastic hem with a reflective shock bungee and durable rubber stopper allow for an adaptable fit. You can zip close the front kangaroo pockets when you’re on the run or if you’re hiding your valuables getting from A to B during a low-key weekend.

Fashionable & Fast,

Your Armoire Assistant
