I’ve never been a runner, but last summer, I trashed my mountain bike and wasn’t able to pick up a new one until recently. That meant I needed another exercise outlet, and since running is relatively affordable, I decided to give it a try. After grabbing some comfy trail shoes, all I needed was a few pairs of socks, and the Enduro V-Tech Quarter from Balega were perfect. With plenty of cushioning, they’re able to absorb whatever the trail throws at them and mesh ventilation makes them highly breathable, so you’re not standing in a puddle of sweat at trail’s end. Available at Bozeman Running Company. $12; balega.com.
