Start summer with a new pair of fresh kicks! Swing by one of our stores and get fitted for your next pair of shoes. Planning to log more miles this summer?

#2 Mix it up (Hydration)
Staying hydrated in the summer is key! Try adding Nuun Hydration or Tailwind Nutrition to your daily H2O intake and give your water a little flavor! Looking to refresh post-run or walk? Try mixing up a Nuun mocktail or ice pop to really cool off! Check out a few of our favorite recipes here: Summer Nuun Recipes
#3 Shady Business (Sunglasses and Hats)
Don’t be shady but do wear shades this summer. There’s Goodr news, you don’t have to be shady to find good looking sunglasses that are perfect to wear out on a run or all day everyday. We love the cool selection that Goodr has to offer, and at a low price point, it’s hard to just stop at one pair! Speaking of shade, stay cool and keep the sun from roasting you with a cap! Our top pick: Nathan Quick Stash Run Hat. It’s perfect for storing your must-haves items like keys, money, and fuel and it also keeps your head covered from the intense summer sun.
#4 Tee-riffic Tanlines (=PR= Originals)
Get that summertime glow while representing your local family-owned shop no matter where your miles take you this summer. Select from our variety of designs while looking good in one of our =PR= Original Tees. Planning on taking a trip? Be sure to pack your =PR= Original and share a photo on social media with the hashtag #PRAroundTheWorld. We love seeing where you and our shirts have traveled! Just don’t forget to apply the sunscreen because being burned is no fun!
#5 Sliding into Summer (Sandals)
Don’t get us wrong: we live in sneakers almost year-round, in fact we have a bit of a sneaker obsession. But when the summer is here we like to slide into sandals from time to time. Taking off our sneakers is easy when you have sheer comfort awaiting. Step into soft clouds and feel the OOOOOO with a pair of OOfos sandals.
#6 Sweating Up a Storm (Car Seat)
There’s nothing better than a runner’s high post run, but there’s nothing worse than getting back to your car and sitting on a sweaty gross car seat. Don’t ruin the runner’s high and instead try a RunsDone Sports Seat Cover, the perfect accessory for every car.
