Summer is here, and with it, hordes of runners sporting apparel that looks like it was developed in a space laboratory. Not sure what we’re talking about? Next time you go on a run, take notice of people’s clothing. Our bet is that 80% of folks look like they’re auditioning as an extra in a sci-fi movie. You don’t have to be one of them.

Whether your goal this summer is to whittle down your race-time, or just get some air in your lungs for the sake of it – you can do it all while looking positively terrestrial. Doubt us? We put together a classic summer running kit to help highlight just how easy it really is to get comfortable, stylish, and capable athletic wear. Of course, finding the right threads is the easy part. Giving it all you’ve got on the home stretch of your local 10k? Best of luck.

Iffley Road Cambrian Stripe Night Sky White Orange T-Shirt

Iffley Road Cambrian Stripe T-Shirt

Just because these shirts look like they could’ve been worn by the cast of Chariots of Fire doesn’t mean that they don’t boast any new tech. This smart new heritage athletic tee from Iffley Road is cut from their own bespoke drirelease fabric, making it so you’ll stay cool and dry even on the hottest afternoon runs.

Purchase: $88

Iffley Road Water Bottle

Iffley Road Water Bottle

You’d have to be a fool to go on a run during the summer, or any time of the year for that fact, without properly hydrating. This simple 750ml squeeze bottle will more than get the job done whether you bring it with you to the track or snatch it back up after a trail run.

Purchase: $12

Iffley Road Hampton Leaf Green Shorts

Iffley Road Hampton Leaf Green Shorts

Made from a lightweight Italian microfiber and featuring a soft inner brief, the mid-length Hamptons are the Platonic ideal of the running short. They feature a simple cut and look sharp on you even when not actively working towards beating that 5k time.

Purchase: $83

adidas Adizero Adios 3 Runners

adidas Adizero Adios 3 Runners

A great run is dependent in large part on a great pair of running shoes. These, in our opinion, are among the best. Boasting a mesh upper, the ever-popular boost midsole, and Adidas’ Torsion System for a stable and consistent ride – they’re really all a runner could ask for.

Purchase: $140
