This shoe was named “Equipment of the Year” in our summer 2020 buying guide. The “support system that can be switched on as required ensures an exceptionally comfortable ride,” wrote our testers. “It’s a great choice for neutral runners whose feet collapse inward when they’re tired and for chronic pronators who are fed up with bulky shoes.”

The Lowdown Slims are Ariella Gintzler’s favorite glasses. “The Lowdown Slim is a smaller, thinner version of Smith’s classic Lowdown frame and has the same sporty yet stylish androgynous shape that blends equally well on a snowfield, singletrack, or sidewalk,” she wrote.

The Flight Futurelight is one of our favorite bowls for trail runs in all weathers. “The Futurelight membrane works like a nano-sieve: It is air-permeable, but not water-permeable, therefore completely weatherproof and remarkably breathable,” wrote tester Martin Fritz Huber in our summer buying guide for 2020.
