RACE TRAINING: PUTTING FALKE MENS ACTIVEWEAR TO THE TEST

As we announced last month, we have pulled together a team of 5 individuals from varying skill sets, fitness levels, ages, backgrounds and genders to take part in the upcoming ASICS 10k this July in London.

Despite the current lockdown uncertainty, the race is still scheduled as planned, and you can grab your early bird tickets by going to https://uk.virginsport.com/event/london-2020/asics-london-10k and we will keep you posted as and when we find out any more.

The team have been busy training as part of their daily outdoor exercise including doing a few virtual runs for charity including an NHS run, and we’ve got some amazing brands, services and products to test and bring you our thoughts so you can consider them for your own training.

Our first set of products we tested were for the boys, and we got sent an incredible selection of activewear from Falke.

The boys have been using their running socks, shorts, joggers, tops and leggings, and here are their thoughts…

FALKE MENS SHORTS FOR OPTIMUM MOISTURE CONTROL – £140
We adore these shorts, they are comfortable, just about the right length as they sit above the knee, and whilst they are quite medium weight, they are cool and don’t feel as heavy once they are on. The moisture control element is very helpful and we found it to be very effective.

FALKE MENS SHORT SLEEVED SHIRT WARM FOR OPTIMUM HEAT REGULATION – £45
We tested a variety of tops and under tops, and all of them are lightweight, regulate the body temperature well, and have good moisture absorption properties. We have found that the long sleeve tops are not really suitable for warmer weather as they trap a bit too much heat in the arms, but they are perfect for cooler conditions.

FALKE MENS TIGHTS FOR FASTER REGENERATION – £110
Running tights may seem like an odd thing to wear for guys at first, but trust us, they will come in handy when the weather is cool. These tights also have a slight compression element in the knees meaning you’ve got additional support. We didn’t find this compression element enough so still wear our knee supports, but the thought it there. We will leave it up to you as to whether you want to wear them on their own or put a pair of shorts over the top – we always opt for shorts for fear of the neighbors looking at us funny haha!

FALKE MENS RUNNING SOCKS –
FROM £15 – £49
Running socks are a staple for any runner, and you’ll find a good pair of moisture control, cooling technology socks will make all the difference to your feet. We love these as they are soft, have good moisture control, and give us support in the areas we need it.

So there you have it, Falke have an amazing range of activewear and casualwear, and it’s clear that they really focus on the innovation and technology of their activewear elements.
