GORE RUNNING Men's/Women's Athletic Apparel SPRING 2014

Men's Urban Runner----looser cut, techy fabrics…who need to sprint when the light changes


Urban runners are getting major love from outdoor labels…and that would make sense because that's where most of us live.

One of the top tier athletic brands that are showing pieces for that market is Gore Running- a high end running apparel/accessories collection with technically fabulous men's+ women's pieces for those on the go--- in the city (women's Magnitude Lady, Air Lady, Sunlight Lady and Essential Lady, Men's Magnitude, Mythos, Air and Essential systems)--- or trail-ers with men's X-Run, Ultra and X-Running though-no women's :(

IMO-the separates are completely interchangeable---really depends on fit and purpose…especially if running attire doubles as gym wear---or bar wear.

Color options also factored into the mix for Spring 2014…with every piece we picture-in many tonal choices set to deliver.

And smartly, Gore Running completely ignored the Pantone color of the year, Radiant Pink-for its men's line. Seriously, we are curious to see how brands-fashion and not so much-are going to sell THAT color to men beyond ties, collar polo's (maybe) and Lily Pulitzer pants.

adorable-would golf in this Air Lady moisture wicking print shirt-tiny back pocket for essentials, flat lock seams for no chafing, mesh inserts=ventilation, reflective print on back. 
Digressions aside-Gore Running separates are very very smartly designed and naturally- feature top of the line Gore fabrics.
