Our Go-To Outfit For Women’s Running

The Lightweight Layers You Need To Get Ahead Of The Pack This Spring

Running, at its core, is a simple sport. Picking out your running gear should be simple, too. But with so many options out there, it’s hard to know which ones are the best. And it’s even harder to make sure your outfit looks as good as it performs. Luckily, that’s why you have us. We’ve sorted through all the options for spring and picked the best of the best so you can stop worrying about what to wear and start enjoying your run. Let’s start with the basics.

Eastbay Women's Running Bra

The Support Team

Distraction-free support is key when it comes to getting the most out of your workout. You need a bra that can help with the heavy lifting. Meet the Eastbay EVAPOR Sports Bra 2.0. This compression-fit bra keeps everything locked and loaded, even when you pick up the pace. And no matter how hard you’re working, our EVAPOR fabric will keep up, wicking away sweat to keep you feeling fresh. The bra is available in multiple options, from basic colors that match any outfit to fun prints that add a pop of excitement.

Layer Up

Spring weather can be unpredictable, but you can’t let that stand in the way of your run. That’s why the adidas Response Icon Hoodie is the perfect lightweight option to help you make the transition into warmer weather. Made from ClimaWarm fabric, this hoodie locks in heat while remaining light and breathable. It’s the perfect compromise for cool rainy mornings and warm sunny afternoons. Reflective details keep you safe and visible when running in low light, and the simple lines and light grey color make this versatile hoodie an easy addition to any outfit.

Eastbay Women's Running Tights

Run Strong

Fashion and function combine perfectly in the Nike Dri-FIT Hyper Power Speed Tights. The ultra stretchy Dri-FIT fabric wicks away sweat to keep you comfortable, and the tight fit helps support your muscles and joints. This compressive fit improves your performance and cuts down on recovery time, so you can run farther and faster than ever before. Screen-printed line graphics running from hip to knee lend even more support to your IT band. This is especially important for your health, since overuse injuries to this ligament are one of the most common in runners.

Eastbay Women's Running Shoes

From The Ground Up

The most important part of your running outfit is absolutely the shoes. You need something light, fast, and durable enough to carry you through the miles. Enter the new ASICS Fuzex. The Fuzex uses seamless upper construction to create a super comfortable, sock-like fit. Meanwhile, a Solyte heel cradle holds your foot firmly in place, leaving no wiggle room for injury. The real kicker, though, comes in the new midsole technology fuzeGEL, a combination of ASICS’ tried-and-true GEL and foam. fuzeGEL is evenly distributed throughout the full length of the shoe, meaning you get the best impact protection no matter where you land on your foot. If you’re dying to know more before you lace ’em up, we break down this innovative new shoe for you here.

At Eastbay, we want you to get the best to be your best. So use these building blocks to create any number of running looks to keep you going strong well into the summer months.

Now that you have the perfect running outfit, it’s time to get out there and enjoy your workout!

ASICS Fuzex: A Cool New Look For Cushioned Running

ASICS Fuzex: A Cool New Look For Cushioned Running

ASICS Fuzex

Something new is happening in the running world: The ASICS GEL cushioning we all know and love is getting a makeover.

But Why?

ASICS’ GEL Cushioning System has been around since the 1980s, and while this trusted midsole has more than proven itself over the past three decades, there is always room for growth and change.

Feeling doubtful? Think of it this way: Just like permed hair and parachute pants have been reborn into the beachy waves and joggers of today, ASICS GEL units have been readapted to fit the modern runner. ASICS is keeping all of the best parts of GEL and using them to create a brand new midsole technology that results in even better performance. That technology is called fuzeGEL.

Meet the shoe: ASICS Fuzex

fuzeGEL is making its debut in ASICS’ brand-new Fuzex running shoe. So, how does it work? We’re glad you asked.

Instead of the traditional placement of GEL units throughout high-wear areas of the rear and forefoot, the entire length of the Fuzex features a consistent amount of GEL cushioning fused with foam (hint: that’s the fuzeGEL we’ve been ranting about). fuzeGEL’s even placement ensures that regardless of how you land in the shoe when running, you’re experiencing the same amount of ground feel and impact absorption.

The addition of foam also allows for more energy return. With every step you take, that fuzeGEL cushioning softens the blow, absorbing your impact and giving it back to you at toe-off, helping to propel you forward for a faster, more energized run. And who doesn’t want that?

The Fuzex also features a Solyte cradle to help hold your heel firmly in place and just an 8mm drop from heel to toe for a faster, smoother stride. All of these features combine to keep you comfortable so you can run with confidence, no matter what.

We think all of this technology is great, and as a bonus, the Fuzex looks awesome, too. The seamless upper design seriously cuts down on overlays for a sleek, streamlined look and a sock-like fit that eliminates any discomfort.

Get The Best To Be Your Best

Part of being your best is being willing to try new things. And with springtime fast approaching, we think now is the perfect time to branch out. Grab a pair of the great colors we have available in the ASICS Fuzex and give ’em a spin. And don’t forget to let us know what you think.
