Take your game to the next level with sports base layers

The base layer is designed to trap a thin layer of warm air against the body and it also works to pull sweat away from the skin, which is known as ‘wicking’. The 2 main types of fabric you can choose for a base layer are Merino wool or synthetic fabrics.

No matter what sporting activities you are involved in, ensure that your base layer is your lightest layer. You’ll be putting on at least two more articles of clothing over your base, so keeping it lightweight, snug, and stretchy will help you maintain agility and flexibility even when you’re fully layered.

Top Selling Running Shoes

It’s essential to invest in a pair of proper running shoes if you want to run regularly. Shoes designed for runners serve two main purposes:

  1. Protect you from injury – by absorbing the impact on your feet and body.
  2. Maximise forward speed – by providing traction to grip the ground well.

 The various types of running shoes are shown below:

Motion control running shoes:

These shoes are suited for feet that roll inward too much, or overpronate. They are designed in such a way to reduce or control the excess rolling action of the foot and act as shock absorbers too. These shoes tend to be fairly heavy but at the same time are durable. The features of motion control running shoes include a polyurethane mid-sole and carbon rubber out-sole for durability.

Cushioned running shoes:

In the case of runners whose feet do not roll inward or outwards, cushioned running shoes are important. This is because it is the rolling movement that helps absorb the shock that would otherwise be sent through the joints to the spine. The cushioning is designed to reduce the shock when the foot hits the ground.

Stability running shoes:

These shoes are a compromise between motion control and cushioned shoes.  They provide a cushioning, medial support and durability. They tend to prevent excess motion and are suitable for those runners who have normal arches and require some medial support and good durability.

Lightweight running shoes:

These shoes are lighter and more responsive than standard trainers and may have varying degrees of cushioning and/or stability, but they are too lightweight to be classed as motion control shoes. These are ideal for fast-paced training or racing.

Some of the top selling shoes from the Kalenji brand are:

Kalenji ELIOFEET Man:

These shoes are so lightweight that you won’t even notice them. The shoe comes with a highly useful strap which allows for easy tightening/ loosening of it. The Kalenji Eliofeet is made up of a breathable 3D mesh with double synthetic coating which provides a high degree of comfort while running.
