Ecco’s NEW Life Street Booties ($180) will take your fashion game to the next level because everyone will be staring at your feet. These golf shoes sparkle beautifully in the sun. They have a glittery, metallic finish in an overall neutral shade that goes with anything. The Life Street Booties are wearable on and off the course, and could be mistaken for a luxury hi-top sneaker.
They’re designed with 100 TPU traction bars that are barely noticeable and they’re made to hold up through rain and heat. A perfect fit for the golf fashionista who strays from the conservative. They also come in white but we’re loving the gold-tan color combo best!
Satisfy your sweet cravings with dessert-inspired color schemes on sportswear. It sounds crazy but it makes sense especially since spring fashion 2013 is all about pastels and soft color blends. If you’re hell bent on cutting out desserts (haven’t we all tried this?) try wearing them instead.
Roxy surf wear will be releasing the wetsuit you see above, which reminded me of Neapolitan ice cream—one of my favorite indulgences. I’m forecasting more flavor-colors in fitness fashion that will coast us into summer, like sliced watermelon with seeds, mint ice cream sandwiches, swirled orange sherbert and strawberry shortcake.

You wear your body out enough during your workouts. No need for your detergent to do that to your clothes. The next time you go to wash your favorite sports bra or sport bikini, use Roux Maison’s detergent and I promise you’ll see a difference!
Here’s why: other detergents leave a harsh chemical residue that breaks down the fabric in activewear, stretching out elastic, and causing colors to fade. Roux Maison Sport and Swimwear detergent ($13.75 - $16.99) is different because it’s eco-friendly, all-natural, and uses only 100% pure oils to keep your clothes smelling fresh. Now that’s what I call endurance!!!
I love when fashionistas and surfers teams up! The DVF Loves Roxy swim line ($30 - $80) is the perfect marriage of sporty chic and bold prints. This genius collaboration features DVF’s playful prints and beachy details splashed all over a range of silhouettes and accessories that, in the words of DVF herself, “empower women to go for it and ride the wave.”
From extra-roomy beach bags to board shorts, rash guards, bikinis, and cover-ups, this line is perfect for anyone who likes their daily dose of Vitamin D. The iconic prints and feminine flair of DVF’s label add designer finesse to Roxy’s board-culture inspired pieces. And with an affordable price range, you’ll be ready to dive into summer ASAP…never mind the fact that it’s still snowing in March.
That’s not a dumbbell. It’s a Trigger Point Performance Cold Roller ($87) designed to help you treat muscle soreness and tightness. It’s an ice bath and foam roller in 1 sleek instrument (made of stainless steel with a gel core). Just pop the cold roller in the freezer before your next long run (or crossfit class or kick-in-the-arse bootcamp session…whatever workout “tears you up”) and it will be ready for a-rollin’ when you return.
The gel core on the roller delivers cold compression to your muscles as you experience a myofascial release from rolling them out slowly with pressure. No need to sit in a freezing tub of ice or suffer through the annoyance of leaking ice-baggies. Instead, let this cold roller inspire you to do more with your freezer, like make healthy popsicles! Considering the pain you’re in, you could use a treat!
This is a great injury prevention and recovery tool for extreme sport enthusiasts like marathoners and triathletes!!! Pricey but you won’t be sorry.
I spotted a Nike publicists (top left pic) sporting Nike’s “Xray Bone” Dri-FIT Tights during NYC Fashion Week. They’re too hot to handle which must be why they were made Limited Edition! Nike designed these leggings to withstand the harshest of workouts while winning the favor of the most discerning of fashion critics. Mission accomplished because they’re SOLD OUT. Never fear, Black Milk Clothing makes a legging that’s similar for fit-fashion lovers in both a muscle and bone print. Get yours to start flashing your insides while you sweat!
Who said weight training gloves have to look like weight training gloves? Not BodyRock Sport because the fitness-fashion brand is now selling some of the edgiest fitness gloves ($50-$60) we’ve ever seen!
The benefits of wearing fit-gloves are great. They protect your hands from injury, bruising, chafing and drying out against rough surfaces in fitness environments. Gloves also shield your precious digits from bacteria easily spread through shared equipment. The gym is a fantastic place, just not one you want to take a microscope to. Our favorite BRS glove is The Robin. What’s yours?
I’m not going to lie. I hate scales and the whole weighing-in process. But Fitbit’s NEW Aria Scale ($129.95) trumps all scales because not only does it recognize you and every person in your household from each other, but it taps into your home’s Wi-Fi to upload and graph your progress…or perhaps your downward spiral, like mine after Thanksgiving.
The Aria sends your info including your body fat % to your personal account on Fitbit.com which you can log into without anyone knowing your business. There’s also a free iphone app in case you want to obsess over how much weight you lost for the New Year. Because that’s one of your resolutions, right?
Meet the sports bra that feels light as a feather and seamless against your skin. It’s from Naked Sports Gear ($42). Even more than the bra’s lightweight construction, I’m loving the color transparency. You’ll feel naked enough to streak through the gym! Just make sure you’re covered up on the bottom to avoid a #TotalGymFail.
NatureBox is changing the face of snacking by showing up at your door once a month filled with nutritious, protein-rich treats that you don’t have to feel guilty about. There’s even an element of surprise because the nutritionists who curate the boxes don’t want you to get bored, so every month they change things up.
It’s the perfect gift for fitness foodies (who turn their noses at energy bars) and the best way to clean up a junk-food lover’s act. The only downside is you might fall in love with snacks you’ll never see again, like the cinnamon coated almonds that still make my stomach growl every time I think of them. NatureBox comes in subscriptions of 3, 6, and 12 months starting at $60 for 3 months.
Biking can be dangerous, especially in urban areas (ahem, NYC) where people (ahem, cab drivers) drive like psychos. But as much as you want to dress with safety in mind, you don’t want to be a eye-sore. The Vespert bike vest ($138) from Vespertine helps solve that problem! It’s flashy in a “major” Fashion Week kind of way. Covered in Hologram silver sequins, The Vespert has a loose fit that’s slimming and easily slipped over a t-shirt. And you better believe those sequins reflect light! Anyone who runs you over in this vest is either blind or wants to steal it. I just bought my very own Vespert from designer Sarah Canner and can’t wait to cruise around in it!
They may be longer than what you’re used to, but Sport+Store Water Bottles ($19.95) sure hold a lot! They’re great if you’d rather not carry a purse, gym bag or stuff your pocket with unruly keys. Just don’t forget your water bottle at the gym (like I always do).
