The sun is shining, and it’s time to suck up that vitamin D like a sponge. Get out there with our pick of the best new kit for June…


Hear, Hear

Jabra Elite Active 75t earphones | £189.99

These are a game changer. The Elite Actives have a truly comfortable, snug fit, up to 28 hours’ battery life from a single charge, and the brilliant HearThrough functionality, enabling you to listen out for traffic and pedestrians (as well as your podcast) while you run. The new colourways – including Mint, Navy and Sienna – are proper gorgeous too.

Yoga Mat

Block Party

Meglio yoga block | from £9.99

Available in natural cork or pretty marble colouring, both with a non-slip surface, these blocks from Meglio are perfect for yoga and Pilates. Perfect for home workouts designed to strengthen your core and your balance, this is a cost effective way to improve your running form.


Get Your Happy

Happy Stride Shorts | £28.99

Gorgeous, flattering shorts in a brilliant go-with-anything leopard print (we agree with Caitlin Moran: leopard is a neutral) these pretty shorts come complete with a zipped pocket large enough for a phone, a key pouch and that all-important fitted inner short.

Vest Final

Vest In Test

Zaazee Azura Racer-back Fitness Vest | £37

The loose fit here is a total winner. This racerback vest made from premium high grade Italian fabric, is super soft, washes brilliantly, and is perfect for running. The flattering fit never rides up and keeps you cool as you go. Bliss.


Under Where?

BP3 Sporty Knickers | £18

These quite rightly won Best In Test back in our May issue. Period pants that are effective AND flattering – we bloody love these. Yes, that was a play on words. Fab support just where and when you need it, in case of the odd wee accident and totally period proof. Save the planet and run happier, frankly.


Don’t Just Run; Levitate

Brooks Running Levitate | £140

Oh we’ve lusted after this shoe for AGES. With gorgeous styling and a super springy ride, the Levitate is one of the most perfect road shoes for neutral runners. The fit is spot on because of that sock-like upper, and that cushioning is just… dreamy.

Running Bra

Bounce Back

Runderwear Runderbra Original Running Support bra | £50

That hot pink is a bit of a winner, isn’t it? The original running support bra is available in A-E sizes, is created in supersoft, technical fabric, and designed in a classic raceback style for no chafing during the run. For bigger boobs, try the Easy-On Support Running Bra, available up to an H, and also £50.


Sock It To Me

Lululemon Speed Tab Sock | £18

These are an absolute must for summer running. Lightweight, stylish running socks with micro-cushioning in the heel and toe, you’ll get no rubbing or irritation from these beauties. Plus, we love the shade – while they’re also available in white, our ability to chuck a pair of white socks in with the coloured wash is legendary. Bring on the grey!
