Carefully selected items that combine style and function for sporty urban lifestlyes.

Running can be enjoyed as a sport with a relatively basic set up but doing it with style is what we really want. Functionality is of course very important so we want a product that has water proofing and breathability using GORE-TEX fabric.

In addition to the high quality and technology born from tight quality control, stylish items that appeal to the fashion conscious are also available. AQZAWA is one such person who is pursuing a unique hybrid style of form and function in the running wear scene.

GORE-TEX Jackets are a great match for running.

As a material GORE-TEX has excellent waterproofing and permeability which means you can run comfortable even if you are hot and sweating heavily making it an ideal material for the running scene. It also makes an excellent material for running jackets because it is windproof and very lightweight.

“Usually for running outerwear a tight fitting jacket is easy to run in but this jacket is especially light weight and fits the body line perfectly so it doesn’t restrict you in any way. The reflector is also great because I often run in the city at night”.

 

On trend waterproof and breathable shoes.

Often lightweight running shoes have the downside of being easily sodden during rainy weather. However if GORE-TEX is incorporated into the design this is no longer a concern. In addition it also helps to prevent sweating inside the shoes so the lightweight feeling can be maintained.

“These shoes seem made for trail running but there also really easy to run on the road with. The grip is excellent and really feels like the shoe is grabbing onto the asphalt. If you are running on trail courses then of course your feet are going to get wet but the same can be said for running during rainy weather in the city so the breathable waterproofing is an excellent point”.
