12 Days of Gifts: Day 5

day5-athletics

We know not everyone is easy to shop for, so this holiday season, we’re giving you 12 days worth of gift ideas!

Day five is all about the athlete in your life: whether it’s your mom, your favorite gym partner, or your neighbor who jogs daily.  When it comes to cross-training or running, Inov-8 shoes are usually at the top of our list, so we’re happy to tell you about them. Here’s a breakdown of some of their new arrivals — and some of our old favorites.

 

FastLift 325

The FastLift 325 is the latest version of inov-8’s hybrid weightlifting shoe.  Perfect for functional fitness and plyometric training, the FastLift 325 is super lightweight without compromising stability.  The combination of inov-8’s famous sock-like fit and an adjustable strap lock in the foot without weighing you down. Available in bright color combinations or classic black and white.

 

F-Lite 250

The F-Lite 250 offers more versatility than any of its predecessors. The new 250 has a 3mm footbed that allows for more support without compromising speed, power, or flexibility.  The POWERHEEL is 40% denser than the forefoot of the shoe and a midfoot lockdown keeps your foot in place so you can lift heavy. Perfect for the cross-training athlete that likes a little more support.

F-Lite 195

The classic 195 is Inov-8’s signature lightweight fitness shoe.  It’s flexible and fast enough for any workout, and stable and comfortable enough to lift weights in.  Rope-Tec reinforcement and a sticky gripping sole make this shoe great for functional fitness workouts. Available with either a Standard or Precision fit. The Standard fit features a wider toe box and is perfect for forefoot strikers, athletes with wider feet, and for lifting heavy weights. The Precision Fit is ideal for athletes with a narrower forefoot that need a more snug fit.

12 Days of Gifts: Day 2

We know not everyone is easy to shop for, so this holiday season, we’re giving you 12 days worth of gift ideas!

For day two, we’re showing you how to stuff the stocking of a serious shoe lover. I bet you’re wondering what all this stuff does, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we?

Shoe Trees

Cedar shoe trees are an essential part of caring for leather shoes. They extend the life and durability of shoes by naturally deodorizing and absorbing moisture while helping shoes retain their shape.

 

Shoe Polish

Alden Color 8 Shoe Paste Wax

Nothing makes an entrance like a superior shine.  Help make their shoes glisten with shoe care products from Alden, Meltonian, Saphir, and more.  Want to make shining even easier? Add in a Shine Mate so that shoe polish stays put!

 

Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender

Alden Leather Defender is designed to prevent the spotting and discoloration that can occur when shoes are exposed to the elements.  Great for protecting quality footwear.  Not for use on suede or nubuck leathers.

 

Shoe Horns

Shoe HornsShoe Horns Shoe Horns

Long or short, metal or covered in leather–we have a shoe horn for everyone.  Long shoe horns are great for those that have trouble bending down to put on their shoes, while shorter ones are easier to pack.  Using this device to ease your foot into your shoe keeps you from destroying the counters, which are the “heel cups” of the shoe.  Our shoe horns make great gifts!

 

Boot Bags

Alden Boot Bags

Shoe bags and boot bags help to protect your shoes during storage or travel. These are particularly useful for keeping dust and nicks off of your formal shoes, as well as for separating your shoes from your clothes in a suitcase.
