Since we were kids, fall has always been a time to shop for clothes. Fall also happens to be the season for runners, so, naturally, running apparel companies are eager to take all our money. In catalogs and ads everywhere, we’re seeing the hottest trends. Some, like the all grey footwear or cozy cowl necks we can get behind. But others leave us saying, “Hmmm.”
Shirts that are so complicated you can’t figure out how to put them on. Puffer jackets when it’s not -20 degrees. Vests and shorts ever. A complete ensemble of sports bra and tights, capri or full-length. Who wears this stuff?
So we want to know:
- What’s the weirdest running ensemble you’ve seen in an ad?
- What’s the weirdest or most fashion forward article of running clothing you own?
- What circumstance if any would you run in just a bra and tights?
- On what level do you care about fashion over function when it comes to your running clothes?
