These running clothes will make you want to get out there this spring. With the London Marathon right around the corner, we're lusting after neon brights, Nike runners and high performance fabrics. Take a look...
Everyone’s wearing running clothes. It could be the weather change or the fact that the London Marathon is within touching distance (or we’re just that desperate to be seen in our new Nike Roshe Runners) but runningwear seems to be top of everyone’s agenda.
Ever since the retro sneaker revival came into play the spring, we’ve been dying for a new pair of trainers. From Nike to New Balance, the new season running shoes have us hooked on colour-pop laces, bold prints and neon palettes.
