These shoes have been developed specifically to keep your feet cool on the run. The minimalist upper lets air flow from all angles, utilising ClimaCool? material and offering 360-degree ventilation to open the air channels with every step you take and giving you all-embracing breathability. The technology in this shoe should reduce the moisture in your shoes by 20% and your foot temperature by 12%. Furthermore, the unique sole construction ensures the ultimate in full-foot flexibility and freedom of motion through unique soft technology and full-length cushioning system. The CC Ride also features a perforated sockliner for increased breathability and a non-woven fabric lining for additional comfort. But it doesn’t only feel cool, it looks cool too! They are available in fresh pink, intense green, sun yellow, radiant gold and red, and they are miCoach compatible.
Available from adidas retail stores and Total Sports.
Falke Active Men’s Boxers and Briefs
The Falke Active Men’s Boxers utilise the unique Drynamix Moisture Mangement System to provide the ultimate in coolness, all-day dryness and freshness. The front panel mesh lining optimises ventilation to help keep you cool and dry while the wide, soft brushed elastic bands will minimise friction for a more comfortable fit. The flat seams and longer legs mean no chafing or riding up, and the rear offset seam will help you step out in comfort every time.
Available at Sportsmans Warehouse and selected Cape Union Marts.
Footdisc Performance Insoles
FOOTDISC insoles use several technologies to not only absorb harmful shock, but also create a more efficient force transfer, meaning less fatigue. The sensor gel beneath the heel absorbs shock but also releases this energy again to optimise the propulsive phase of your gait. The 3-D Behavioural System provides arch support to the common foot types, highlighting the differences in arch profile, cushioning and stability needed. It has been designed to redistribute pressure evenly and stabilise excessive movements that can lead to injury, such as overpronation. The DryTek top sheet is hard-wearing and designed to wick moisture away from the skin, and the Freeflex mid-layer is a memory foam enriched with bamboo charcoal, which adapts to the contours of your foot, improving comfort and preventing blisters, while the bamboo charcoal reduces odours.
Available at specialist running stores in Gauteng and Eastern Cape.
