3 TECHNICAL RUNNING TOPS

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 19 January 2018

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or have just taken up the sport, you’ll know that choosing the right workout gear is essential. Streamlined joggers and comfortable trainers are a given, but choosing what to wear on your top half is often overlooked. For ideas on how to dress sensibly for an outdoor sprint, check out these three breathable, sweat-repellent tees.

If you tend to go running around the neighbourhood at night, then this T-shirt will be right up your street. It’s made from Nike’s innovative Dri-Fit fabric which encourages liquid to evaporate from its surface, so no need to worry about getting uncomfortably sweaty.

Another beneficial quality of this crew-neck tee for evening runners is the shade it comes in. The neon-yellow colour of this top means that you’ll be easy to spot in the darkness – especially if you pair it with reflective running trainers. Remember: safety first, folks.

Feeling a more form-fitting style? Check out this compression-fit tee from Nike. Made from a polyester-nylon blend (both synthetic, high-tech fabrics), this T-shirt is guaranteed to fit close to your body and prevent you from becoming damp with sweat.

But what really makes this top a solid piece of workout kit is its striking appearance. Forged out of a grey heather material and with raglan sleeves, it's the combination of these two distinct design elements that separate it, style-wise, from your usual exercise gear.

If you’re still backing the bold-logo trend, then you’ll be a fan of this heavily branded running top. With ‘NIKE’ written in oversized letters along one side and the company’s trademark Swoosh on the shoulder, running is made so steezy with this standout tee.
