The best running gear for fall

Varley Berkeley Bra

Designers like Roberto Cavalli and Sally LaPointe made a case for snakeskin this season, and athleisure is following suit. This crop top bra has V-shaped perforation to keep you cool and a pocket at the back for stashing your phone. The neutral color pairs with basics.


Nagnata Suki Houndstooth Biker Short

Inspired by suiting from fashion houses like Gucci and Chanel, this biker short combines an unexpected houndstooth print with technical merino wool fabric. The material, which is both odor-resistant and wicking, will keep you fresh during a long run or treadmill session. 


Doxa Run Jono Jacket

Reach for this graphic, bulk-free windbreaker when the weather shifts. The jacket, which features a protective hood, thumb holes, and four-way stretch, won't weigh you down or hinder movement during interval training.


Reebok VB Half-Zip Running Top

Vibrant ensembles were seen on Sies Marjan and Rachel Comey fall runways, a strong indication that neon is sticking around. Victoria Beckham’s latest collaboration with Reebok hits the trend with reflective details for staying visible on the road.


Tracksmith Van Cortlandt Tee 

Constructed from breathable mesh with anti-bacterial technology, this t-shirt offers comfort and dryness for a Precision Run workout or race day. What’s cool: The bold striped sash is influenced by the Cornell track and field teams circa the late 1800s.


Nux The Lotus Crop

This romantic long sleeve crop provides a supportive, second-skin fit, while mesh cutouts allow heat and moisture to escape. Wear it over your favorite sports bra with high-waisted leggings for cardio or regen.


Nike Packable Running Rain Jacket 

Military green is a staple for fall, as proven by Gabriela Hearst and Tom Ford, who embraced the shade in head-to-toe runway looks. This olive jacket is ideal for unexpected showers on your long-distance run: Water beads right off and you can conveniently pack it into itself when the weather clears. 


Satisfy Trail Long Distance 10” Shorts

Flat seams guard against chafing or rubbing, while the moisture-wicking fabric and reflective splatter print mean you’re visible to bikers or cars. The double-layered short offers extra coverage for chilly late-fall days. 


Sweaty Betty Power Mesh 7/8 Workout Leggings

Available in a shade inspired by autumn foliage, this ankle-length tight shows off toned glutes thanks to the flattering seams. Pair it with the coordinating tank for an elevated monochrome look.


ASICS GlideRide 

These newly-released sneakers feature multiple layers of cushioning, which the brand says allows you to run longer with less effort. The curved sole reduces ankle movement and propels you forward while mesh material on top provides ventilation. Try the black ones which will go with everything or the bold red as a nod to fall foliage.


Apple Watch Series 5 

Apple's latest watch innovation boasts a compass that gives your direction, elevation, and incline (great for trail runners and hikers), and a Noise app to detect decibel levels that could harm your hearing. It also features an always-on display so you can view your workout metrics without touching the screen. Wear it with the durable, reflective Nike Sport Loop Band.

Thule Urban Glide 2 Stroller

“Taking my daughter on runs with me is the best. It's nice not listening to music or podcasts and just talking about the trees, birds, and clouds,” Feller says. This all-terrain stroller has a swivel front wheel so it’s easy to maneuver while jogging, and it can be folded down with one hand, making for easy storage and transportation.


Hoka One One Clifton 6

Feller has been running in Hoka One One Cliftons for years. “I used to get lots of aches and pains, but these super padded and cushioned shoes are a dream for me,” she says. The deep heel cup, wider fit, and thick sole offer stability, room for your foot to spread out, and shock absorption.


Image Skincare Prevention+ Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer SPF 50

“I love that this moisturizer has SPF in it, so I don't feel gross and sticky but I still get sun protection during those late-morning long runs,” Feller says. Formulated with antioxidants, it also protects against free radical damage.


Lululemon Pack It Down Vest

“I love a vest for those not-too-cold-yet days. I'll layer it over a long-sleeved shirt to stay toasty without being too toasty or bulky,” Feller notes. Her pick: this weather-resistant, insulated down vest which has a slender fit and pockets for storing essentials.
