Nike-LunarEclipse-2

Gyms are packed right now with people burning off holiday cookies, apple pies and beer guts, and we’re no different. Actually, there is one difference between all of us here at Cool Material (along with you guys reading this) and about 75% of the people on their trial memberships—we actually care about looking good while we work out. Hey, we don’t go from presentable all day to complete slobs with stained undershirts and torn up trainers the second we hit the weight room. Our sneaker obsession clearly finds its way into our choice of running shoe, and for our wind sprints in the near future, we’re going with the LunarEclipse+ 2’s from Nike. They provide great support, a customizable fit and they look way better than the white Reeboks you spilled Powerade on after your last mini-marathon.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
