So you’ve decided to become a runner. You’ve come to the right place. Not only does Boulder Running Company live and breathe running (plus walking and hiking), but we also have the footwear and know how to get you fitted in the right shoe to accelerate your running enjoyment.
Newbies may think that they have to buy high-end running gear to get started. That’s not necessarily the way to go. While you will want good quality gear, it’s best to buy what’s right for your current budget and abilities. Think of it as the start of a relationship with us at Boulder Running Company.
The Brooks Trance 12 for Men ($149.95) is a great everyday shoe that provides plush levels of cushioning along with stability and support. The Caterpillar heel crash pad improves the heel-to-toe transition. A built-in bootie in the shoe’s upper creates a great fit.
Long considered the shoe for runners with a neutral gate, the Adidas Glide Boost 6 for Men ($129.95) has an enhanced Boost midsole cushioning technology for greater rebound, energy return and comfort which makes for a better running experience for you. The shoe is lightweight with breathable mesh uppers to help keep your feet dry and comfortable.
The Asics Gel Foundation 2014 for Women ($109.95) is newly modified, improved using runner feedback. The popular and supportive training shoe now features a wider-fitting platform. The modified upper has a wider toe box with a snugger fit in the heel. The Gel Cushioning System attenuates shock during impact, allowing good transition through every step you take.
It may look unusual, but the Hoka One One Kailua Tarmac for Women ($129.95) wins the popularity contest in running. The cushioned rocker profile is light and comfortable. As you start running longer distances, this shoe is right for a variety of surfaces. The beauty of the design is that the oversized midsole absorbs any hard obstacle your foot might pass over. Then, once it’s compressed, the midsole springs back up under your forefoot for increased acceleration.
The Brooks Sherpa 2 in 1 Short for men ($49.95) has a boxer brief liner for comfort and to wick moisture away from skin. It also has retroreflectivity for added visibility.
You could wear just any old t-shirt but why, when you can wear the Nike DriFit Knit Short Sleeve Shirt 519714 for Men ($70.00). Be visible while comfortable with the knitted weave fabric. Absent seams, this shirt decreases any chance of chafing.
Brooks Epiphany 2 in 1 Short- Women
With classic lines and a flattering fit, the Brooks Epiphany 2 in 1 Short for Women ($39.95) has a 6” inseam and a stretch woven shell for great range of motion. There’s even a hidden pocket on the inner short for your I.D. and a little cash.
A good sports bra is essential for any woman-runner, beginner or pro. The Nike High Compression Bra 548544 ($45.00) provides support plus breathability. The built-in bra has molded cups and durable shoulder straps that don’t cut into your shoulder while allowing for movement from the mesh racerback.
