BRING ON THE CHEAP RUNNING SHOES

Cheap running shoes have been shown to lower your risk of injury. There, we said it. But the words are not our own.  

The University of Bern in Switzerland conducted research among almost 5,000 runners that proved that runners who wore shoes priced at under $40 resulted in 50% fewer injuries than those who wore running shoes costing upwards of $95.

Medicine + Science in Sports and Exercise reported similar results to their own study

Luxurious cushioning might feel great to stand in, but when running, the feet lose the relationship to the ground that keeps the runner stable.

A really quality product!

I’m a 28 year old woman from Brisbane, Australia who suffers from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and practices ballet. The combination of Brisbane weather and serious heat intolerance means a hot day can be absolutely debilitating for me. I found the Oro sports vest because I was looking for something that wasn’t too bulky and would not embarrass me if I wore it in public or at ballet class. This product is really good, not only does it look great and is really well made structurally but the gel inserts keep me cool for hours, even without aircon.
If I had to find fault with the vest it would be that it is designed as unisex and does not take a woman’s chest into account. On me it does not cool my entire front uniformly as my chest distorts the shape. But this is just nitpicking, the vest still works great. The only cool vests available in Australia are made for construction workers so I was really excited to see something designed specifically for sport (the freedom of movement is great!)

"The Oro Sports Maximo Cool vest has been a great resource for me on my recovery runs in Savannah, GA. The vest keeps me cool while training directly on my skin below my HOKA ONE ONE training gear without chafing. Topical cooling is very important in long ultraraces. I would recommend using this vest for the hottest parts of the day in events like Western States 100 and Javelina Jundred."
