It’s that time again, shorter days, chilly nights, golden Aspens. Fall is here! Before it’s too late, get out and explore. Here are a couple of essentials to get you out and enjoying this Fall season.

A Great Pair of Running Shoes

Hoka Speedgoat GTX - Men's & Women's - $170

Why we love them:

The Hoka Speedgoat 5 is a workhorse in all sorts of variable terrain. With its newly designed upper and an upgrade in moisture control (thanks to the GORE-TEX membrane) this shoe is ready to conquer the wettest adventures. Waterproof shoes are a huge benefit to Fall running when flurries and rain create unpredictable conditions.

Don’t Skimp on Socks

Why we love these:

For every good shoe, there is a great sock to go with it. Heavy research and new technology have upped the sock game. Good socks can make all the difference to the enjoyment of your outing. Plus, Darn Tough has a lifetime warranty! Got a hole in your sock? Bring it in (clean, please!) and you can exchange for a new pair on the spot (note: we only exchange 1 pair at a time).

From no-show to over the calf length, zero-cusion to full cushion, lightweight to heavyweight socks Darn Tough has what you need. Available in men’s, women’s, and kid's sizes.

A Beanie for Every Season

Smartwool Isto Retro Beanie - $40 & Creek Run Beanie - $38

Why we love them:

Who doesn’t love an excuse to wear a beanie? Warm enough to keep those ears toasty when the wind whips but light enough to wear on a casual day. The materials used are a blend of merino wool, recycled polyester, and nylon so these hats are soft, warm, and durable. 

Bonus Points: For the month of October you can buy 3 pairs of Smartwool socks & get a 4th pair free!

Light and Cozy Pants

Vuori – Mens and Womens Performance Jogger – W $94 / M $98
Fall Essentials vuori mens performance jogger
Fall Essentials women's vuori performance jogger

Why we love them:

I mean really love them! Soft, stretchy, versatile. Need we say more. These cozy pants will take you from Netflix on the couch to a jog through the woods. Their light and airy design along with a tapered ankle give your run that extra kick it needs. Soft enough to wear to sleep, fashionable enough to wear to the store, and certainly durable enough to wear on a run or walk in the woods!

The Hybrid Jacket

Salewa – Fanes Sarner Down Hybrid Jacket – $300
