Was there a stampede when the new Uniqlo Global Flagship Store opened its doors at Orchard Central on its first day of business? That depends upon your definition of the…

Would you spend less than $150 to make sure you get home safely from your night runs? Of course you would — especially if you’ve tried endless ways to light…
My mum says I was born with a precocious sense of style. By the time I reached 7, she had to take me along when she shopped because I disliked…
It’s a common stereotype: men who take up athletic endeavours don’t give a whit about whether the garments and shoes in their closet match up and coordinate with each other….
No matter what type of running gear you choose to wear, the physical exertion of running results in calorie and weight loss. Of course, shorts and T-shirts made of cool, porous cotton or cotton blends are most popular when you are running in Singapore’s hot, humid climate.
It is a given fact that we are all born naked. As young children and adolescents, we learn how to wear clothing and appreciate fashion sense. As many of us begin our running careers, we remember the charm of adolescence and the bare look. Proper clothing is important in any athletic event, including marathon running. During the early years of marathons, men and women would be conservatively clad from head to toe. Unfortunately, trends in running fashion have changed over the years. It seems as if the less clothing, the more successful a runner will be.
They look and feel great, and are sure to get you pumped too! The Reebok ZPump Fusion TR are not only fun – you pump air into it to get a personalised fit, but are also comfortable, thanks to its midsole cradle and metasplit, expansion-grooved forefoot support. These high-performance shoes comes with several other features too, but the tire-inspired traction underfoot seals the deal for us.
As a girl who’s as fastidious about how I look as I am about my running shoes, I was interested in knowing more about Newline’s tees, jackets and tights after a girlfriend told me the company story: A Special Forces dude parachuted to earth and realised that while his chute stayed dry, his clothes were perpetually wet! It’s anybody’s guess what secret mission the guy was on when he reached this epiphany, but it wound up as the foundation of Newline sports collections where parachute fabric is a design mainstay. Both my friend and I love men of mystery and hope to run into a few next time we wear our three Newline separates to go for a run!
Close your eyes and picture yourself running in the Singapore heat. You can strip down, but there are only so many layers you can shed before the fashion or real police question your modesty. Sure, guys have it easier, because a six-pack won’t ruffle feathers, but we women don’t have that luxury—and not all of us are comfortable displaying our assets in crop tops and halters.
Evelyn Li jokingly tells her running club members that she was such an active baby, her mum had a premonition that she would give birth to a female runner! She meant what she said and named her daughter after American champion Evelyn Ashford, the legendary star who qualified for every U.S. Olympic team (and took gold four times) between 1976 and 1994. Evelyn grew up to honour her name, but these days, the fashionable Singapore runner has become enamoured with another name: Lorna Jane. This talented Aussie sportswear designer has set the world ablaze with her cutting edge togs, and we are impressed enough with three new designs from her collection to review them.
Before you start reading, I must make a confession: I can’t get enough wild colour combinations when I choose my running outfits! You read that right. I’m hot for bright pinks, vibrant blues, electric greens—you name it. So when I first glimpsed the Funkita Brick Braque singlet, in its signature splashes of colours, I fell in love! I grabbed one once I saw that it was available in my size (10) and then I caught sight of matching Brick Braque 3/4 tights. I need a slightly larger size, so I was over the moon to see that I could order these in size 12.
