Plus, it has a built-in whistle to alert other runners if you are in distress or need to scare off critters.
Running puts your feet through a lot. Give them the comfort they deserve with a pair of OOFOS sandals. These recovery sandals cradle the curves of your feet in cloud-like foamy goodness, absorbing 37% more impact than traditional footwear to reduce stress on the knees and ankles.
With standout looks and unbeatable comfort, these are perfect to wear after your race or around town.
Women’s Vuori Halo Performance Hoodie 2.0
There are few things better in life than zipping up a comfortable, cozy hoodie, especially when the weather turns colder. Enter the Vuori Halo Performance Hoodie 2.0.
This hoodie will be your new favorite to reach for on chilly mornings. Plus, this incredibly soft sweatshirt is made with Vuori’s DreamKnit™ fabric, so it wicks moisture and dries quickly if you workout in it.
Men's Vuori Sunday Jogger and Women's Vuori Performance Jogger

These pants are so comfortable, you won’t want to wear anything else. They are made with high-quality, super soft DreamKnit™ fabric that’s soft and smooth against your skin. The athletic, tapered fit of these joggers is perfect for most body shapes. The material washes well, wicks moisture away and dries quickly. There is no better indulgence to buy yourself than a pair of these joggers.
Hydro Flask 32oz Wide Mouth Bottle
Keep your drinks cold and yourself hydrated throughout the day with the Hydro Flask 32oz Wide Mouth bottle. The TempShield™ insulation keeps beverages cold up to 24 hours and hot up to 12 hours. Plus, it is built like a tank with 18/8 Pro-Grade Stainless Steel construction and is dishwasher safe, so no extra dishes to wash by hand.
Pro tip: Grab some Nuun tabs to mix in your water for some variety and flavor.

The light cushion provides more comfort and extra protection in high-impact areas, while the iWick fibers in the sock wick moisture away to keep your feet cool and dry. With a lifetime guarantee, these socks are a great investment in your running future.
goodr Running Sunglasses
These sunglasses are polarized, don’t slip and don’t bounce, so they are perfect for running—and just about every other activity.
With so many patterns, colors and styles to choose from, you can find a pair that fit your sport and personality. Not only are these glasses great for running, but you can wear them around town or on vacation. And since they are affordable and fun, you can get a few pairs to match any outfit.
Shokz OpenRun Pro
Listening to your favorite pump-up song can propel you up that hill, so upgrade your tangled earbuds to Shokz OpenRun Pro wireless headphones.
These headphones sit outside your ear and send the music to your inner ear with bone conduction technology, allowing you to hear your surroundings as well as your jams. So now you can hear the car driving up behind you as you rock out to your favorite songs or your kids yelling for you as you clean the house listening to an audiobook.

How We Picked the Best Gifts
With more than 45 years of experience, Fleet Feet is the expert in running (and gifting). What makes the perfect gift for a runner comes down to the personal experience, goals, preferences and style of that runner. We use a combination of real-life use, quality of materials, seasonal trends and our own top-seller lists to pick out the best gifts. With all that in mind, we picked gear that lived up to our personal (and professional) expectations. Plus, as people who live and breathe running, we know what we would like to unwrap ourselves.
Standing Behind Our Picks
We picked the best gifts based on what we think will work for the most people in most situations. If you buy a gift from us and you don’t love the way it looks, fits or performs, bring them back within 60 days for a full refund.
Plus, we offer free shipping on all orders over $99 on fleetfeet.com, and we’ll match a lower price from a qualifying retailer. That’s our Happy Fit Guarantee.
