To get things rolling, we thought it would be a good idea to start out with one of the most popular waist trimmer belts for men on the market right now. The ActiveGear Waist Trimmer Belt has been earning some impressive waist trainer reviews in recent times and having tested it out for ourselves we can see just why.

For starters, it’s very competitively priced compared to its competitors and we all know that cost plays a big part in things. Secondly, we love how this belt is a good all-rounder in that it can be used as an aid for weight loss but also for additional support to the lower back muscles when working out. In fact, you’ll find that this offers more support than most which will go a long way to helping you avoid any injuries when working out.

As for the material, this is a high-grade latex-free neoprene which is both flexible and comfortable. We’re also impressed at how good it is at moisture wicking. This thing will make you sweat a lot but it’s contained sweat that you will not notice until you take it off. It’s also very odor-resistant but this does not mean that you do not have to wash it – seriously guys, just wash it from time to time, please.

You’re given the option of two different sizes when purchasing this waist shaper for men. You can either go for the medium which can fit waist sizes of up to 42 inches or the large which adds another 10 inches on top of that so a max waist of 52 inches. Wearing and adjusting the ActiveGear is done easily with a Velcro fastener that is tight and secure and its anti-slip design means it should always stay in place despite the sweat that will be generated underneath it.

Pros

  • checkOne year money back guarantee
  • checkAvailable in two sizes
  • checkSuperior lower back support

Cons

  • cross-altNot the most discreet

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 52”
  • Type: Belt
  • Material:  Neoprene

In our opinion, if you wanted a waist trimmer to accompany some high-intensity cardio workouts at the gym, the Sports Research Sweet Sweat Premium is the best waist trainer you can get. This is the goto trimmer if you want pure performance at aiding weight loss and muscle toning. It will make you sweat, and when you think you’ve sweat everything out, it’ll make you sweat some more.

Made from a latex-free neoprene, this waist trainer will increase thermogenic activity during a workout and thus you’ll start to sweat a whole lot more. That sweat should not be worried about however as the textured inner grid of the belt will help to repel any moisture absorption and will contain most sweat until you remove it. It also has an anti-slip feature that should limit any movement and keep it right in place despite the additional sweat.

There are five different sizes in total than you can opt for and the price does understandably increase the larger that you go. The smallest will fit waists of up to 33 inches while the largest for all you proud beer-belly owners out there, will fit an impressive maximum size of 58 inches. The neoprene material is designed to contour with your body shape, so it’s important that you get the sizing right.

The Sweet Sweat does provide decent support to the lower back and abdominal muscles but not as much as other products do. For that reason, we recommend this for high-intensity cardio work rather than bodybuilding or weight lifting. This will better be suited for those of you that are trying to lose belly fat and excess weight rather than those that are trying to tone up. If you wanted the latter, this will still help of course but there are better options out there if you wanted improved support.

Pros

  • checkLatex-free neoprene material
  • checkIdeal for high-intensity training
  • checkAvailable in five different sizes

Cons

  • cross-altLimited back support

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 58”
  • Type: Belt
  • Material:  Neoprene

In terms of pure value, you’re not going to be getting much better than the McDavid Waist Trimmer Belt. This budget-priced waist trimmer might be the cheapest on our list but it actually performs very well too. It promotes a healthy sweat, supports, and cushions your core, and provides post-workout pain relief which makes it ideal for those of you that suffer from back pain.

The McDavid trimmer belt is constructed of a latex-free neoprene and it comes in just the one size. This means it’s basically a one size fits all but it will not be ideal for anyone that has a waist bigger than it’s max of 40-inches. That is just about the only negative with this waist trainer really and it will at least be able to fit most of you. If you do need something larger, however, you might have to look at some of our other plus size waist trainer recommendations.

That neoprene material is designed to contour to the body of the wearer and it both compresses and uses its thermogenic properties to encourage increased healthy sweating as you perform a workout. The inner layer is non-slip, well-insulated and will provide you with a comfortable and discreet advantage when working out. As for securing the belt in place, there’s a Velcro fastener that will allow you to easily adjust the tightness.

As for the support that this belt provides, this is aimed more at aftercare for those of you that might suffer from back pain or arthritis. The trimmer belts help to soothe and cushion your lower back so that you’ll enjoy pain-relief and a reduction in muscle fatigue. This is at the expense of the lumbar support and posture correction benefits that some other waist trimmers will focus on.

Pros

  • checkFantastic price
  • checkIdeal for back pain/arthritis sufferers
  • checkLightweight & comfortable

Cons

  • cross-altOnly fits waists up to 40 inches

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 40”
  • Type: Belt
  • Material:  Neoprene

When it comes to brand names, there are not much bigger than TNT with regards to waist trimmers and other types of gym equipment. Their TNT Pro Series Waist Trimmer Belt is widely regarded as one of the best and we’ve found it difficult to find anything that would suggest otherwise.

Made from 100% neoprene, this waist trimmer belt for men and women has been designed to increase the number of fluids that you sweat out whether during a workout or throughout the day. The neoprene material has thermogenic properties that will promote increased sweating all around the abdomen of your body. This will enable you to lose weight, tone up your muscles, or burn fat far more efficiently.

Designed to be discreet you can get results with the TNT Pro Series when worn either under or over your clothing. It’ll also add some much-needed support to your lower back even though TNT admittedly claims that this is not the primary purpose of this belt. Slimming and weight loss is that main focus but it does offer a decent amount of core support which can help you to prevent muscle strain or injuries during a workout.

We particularly like the impressive sweat-wicking properties of this belt which also helps to prevent it from moving around during your workouts. That is also down to its anti-slip feature and the strong Velcro fastener that always stays in place no matter what activity you’re partaking in.  If we had any complaints at all, it would be that you’ll need to air out the belt when you first get it as it has quite a heavy chemical odor.

Pros

  • checkOdor-resistant
  • checkThree different sizes
  • checkReputable brand

Cons

  • cross-altInitially has a chemical odor

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 51”
  • Type: Belt

Waist trainers can also come as a vest variant and the first of these on our list is that of the Wonderience Trainer Vest. Otherwise known as a sauna vest, this waist trainer has a zipper fastener and somewhat resembles a woman’s corset. Much like trimmer belts, these vests will compress against your torso and stimulate increased sweating when worn.

These are ideal to wear when working out but they will also be effective even when worn as you go about your daily routine. The additional sweat that your body produces will ensure that weight loss and fat burning is done in a more efficient manner. They will also provide lumbar support to your spine, lower back muscles, and will promote a more healthy posture when worn frequently.

The material that is used to promote increased sweating is that of neoprene, a material that contours to your body and has thermogenic properties. The great thing about it is that you’ll hardly notice that you’re even sweating until you remove it. The sweat is contained beneath the vest so you’ll not have any embarrassing leakages throughout your day. Once you use the zipper fastener to open it up – you’ll be amazed at just how much you have sweat.

All in all, this is a great product and certainly among our favorites. We like how discreet it is compared to trimmer belts. You’re able to wear it underneath your clothes without anybody being able to notice. This cannot be said for some belts that will make you look like the worlds first pregnant man. If a vest appeals to you more than a belt, we certainly suggest that you take a look at this offering from Wonderience.

Pros

  • check7 Sizes available
  • checkCompetitively priced
  • checkVery discreet

Cons

  • cross-altOnly available in two colors

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 49.2”
  • Type: Vest
  • Material:  Neoprene

Another neoprene waist trainer that is earning good reviews is that of the GoldenStarSport Men’s Waist Trainer Vest. This is one of the more comfortable waist trainer vests on our list but you shouldn’t think that this is at the expense of other more important areas. This thing will certainly make you sweat bucketloads, will promote a better posture, give you added spinal support, and essentially, help you get rid of some of that annoying belly fat.

While this does everything that you might expect from a waist trainer for men, it actually has its own unique selling point. There is a dual zipper fastener on the front which adds, even more, allows you to make it far smaller than it would without them. The fabric between the zippers can be removed once you’ve lost a ton of weight and you can then use a single zipper to fasten it going forward.

With a discreet design, this waist trainer vest for men can be worn underneath your clothes throughout the day to encourage weight loss, or on its own during a workout to get even more benefit. It fits your body snugly and will compress in all of the right areas so that you not only get an instantly better shape but will also be able to reap the benefits of increased perspiration.

With a total of seven sizes to choose from ranging between Small and 4XL, you’ll be able to fit waist sizes of up to 49.4 inches with this product. Admittedly, those of you with larger waists will have to look elsewhere but their sizing does at least mean that most of you will be able to wear it and use its performance to increase the sweat that your body creates.

Pros

  • check7 Sizes to choose from
  • checkUnique twin zipper fastener
  • checkImpressive sweat stimulation

Cons

  • cross-altSizings run a little big

Specs

  • Waist Size: Up to 49.4”

Next up we have the Fitru Waist Trimmer Belt, another product that we were impressed with having tested it out on our own glorious abdominal muscles. Alright, so those abs might be beneath a few layers of fat but they are still there and we’re still immensely proud of them. All jokes aside, our flab has actually been slightly de-flabbed thanks to this waist trimmer and that’s more than good enough for it to get our recommendation.

Made from a durable, thick, and flexible neoprene material and with an inner layer that utilizes anti-slip technology, this waist trimmer will allow you to sweat profusely without having to worry about it moving around or falling out of place. The Velcro fastener will also make sure that it fits as tightly as possible so that you can get the very best of benefits out of each workout.

While the obvious focus of this trimmer is to, well…trim, it does bring additional health benefits as well. It provides additional support for your lower back and your abdominal muscles. This will helps you to avoid injuries and will also mean that you’ll experience a little pain relief after every workout. A final benefit is the one that it will have for your posture. It will keep you upright and straight for as long as you wear it.

If you have a belly as large as up to 60 inches and really want to find something for an affordable price that can give you an extra edge at the gym, the Fitru waist trimmer is something we really suggest you look at. It’s certainly one of the most effective on our list but if you’re still not sure, we still have plenty more trimmers for you to consider yet.

Pros

  • checkLatex-free neoprene material
  • checkGood build quality
  • checkRepels moisture

Cons

  • cross-altHas a smell of petroleum at first

This waist trainer vest will raise the temperature of your bodies core so that it has to produce more sweat in an attempt to cool itself down. While this is happening, your body will be burning at least 50% body fat depending on the activity that you’re doing when wearing it.

Like many of the other vests on our recommended list, this is made from a stretchy but durable neoprene material that will make you sweat like no other. Whether you’re wearing the vest under your normal clothes at home or at work, you’ll be sweating away and trimming the fat as you go about your day. Of course, to get the absolute optimum out of the benefits, this should be worn at the gym during a workout.

You can even turn it inside out and wear it as it’s a reversible vest with a different color on either side.

Another option if you want to do something about all that belly fat hanging over your jeans is the Healthcom Pro Men’s Waist Trimmer Belt. Available in three sizes with the largest being able to fit a waist of up to 45.9-inches, this belt will contour to your body shape and stimulate an increase in the heat that your core has to withstand. This will lead to a big increase in sweating and thus you’ll start to lose more calories and fat than you would if you weren’t wearing it.

Weight loss and muscle toning are the primary reasons for wearing a belt like this one but you’ll also enjoy a number of other benefits as well. For one, it offers great lumbar support, will encourage a much better posture, and provides a good level of pain relief to anyone that suffers from back pain or arthritis.

The Healthcom Pro Trimmer Belt has attained some good reviews and we’re equally as impressed as many others are. It might be a little more expensive than others but when you consider the quality build, it’s lightweight and discreet design, and how effective it is at increasing your perspiration, it’ll certainly feel worth that slightly larger price tag.

This trimmer is also unisex as well so if you have a wife or girlfriend that could do with a bit of a tone up, you can both use it. Of course, we’re not suggesting that you start commenting on their weight as this is never going to end well. You can at least hope that they’ll see your own results and give it try though.

Pros

  • checkBudget waist trimmer belt
  • checkImpressive lumbar support
  • checkUnisex trimmer belt

Cons

  • cross-altOnly one color option

The Rocked Abs Workout Waist Trimmer Belt is another that is more than worthy of a place on our list and we have to say that for its price, performance, and quality of build, there are not many others that offer as much value for money as this one. As long as your waist is no bigger than the max size of 42-inches, this one-size fits all belt will be able to make you sweat and lose more weight than ever before.

This is constructed of a flexible, easy to clean, and moisture wicking material called neoprene which is designed to provide compression around your midriff that will stimulate an increase in sweating. The more you sweat, the more weight you’ll lose no matter whether you’re working out in a gym or mowing the lawn at home. The great part is that you won’t even notice that sweat until you take the thing off due to its moisture wicking.

As well as the obvious benefits this belt can have for weight loss, fat burning, and the toning of your abdominals, you’ll also be able to improve your posture and minimize back injuries due to the exceptional levels of support that the belt provides. You’ll also look the part too due to its stylish red design. Of course, you can always hide it under your clothes if you wanted to be a little more discreet.

What we also like about the Rocked Abs Wasit Trimmer is the fact that they have plenty of confidence in their product. They offer a no questions asked 100% money back guarantee to anyone that’s not satisfied with their trimmer belt. Judging from the reviews that we’ve read, that do stick to this promise as well.

Still not found the ideal waist trimmer yet or perhaps you just wanted to read about all of them? Well, in either case, the final one that we’ve reviewed might just be what you’ve been looking for. Now, this is only for waists of up to 43-inches so if you’re a bigger boy than most, you’ll have to go for something bigger. However, if you can fit into this thing, we think you’re going to be impressed.

As with most other waist trimmers, the Bracoo SE22 Advanced Waist Trimmer Belt works by insulating your core, raising its temperature, increasing your heart rate, increasing the amount you sweat which in turn allows you to burn calories faster. This is made possible by the thermogenic properties of the neoprene material that the belt is made of. That material also keeps any sweat when under wraps via its moisture wicking properties.

A Velcro fastener allows you to securely adjust the belt as tightly as needed and its discreet design allows you to conceal it underneath your clothing. Good lumbar support helps to prevent muscle injuries, support the lower back, and provide after-workout relief for those that might suffer from back pain or arthritis. That support also helps to support and train a good posture for your body.

Due to an effective anti-slip lining, this belt will always stay in place whether you’re running, jogging, cycling, or doing intense cardio work at the gym. With a one size fits all sizing of up to 43-inches, it’ll also be ideal for the majority of people. There are some other brands that can fit larger waistlines if you’re one of those that need a bit more help at reducing the size of your gut.

Pros

  • checkAnti-slip lining
  • checkDiscreet design

Cons

When you combine the powers of both a belt and the gel, you’re going to be able to enjoy the platinum in weight loss, fat burning, and muscle toning.

A tub this size will last you up to two months in total should you use it twice a day but obviously this length of time will vary depending on how big the areas are that you’re using it.

BUYING GUIDE & FAQ’S

What is a Waist Trainer and How Does it Work?

Originally, waist trainers were designed with women in mind. They took the idea of the corset a little further in that rather than just squeezing the life out of a waist to give off an instant hourglass figure, they would also work to supplement any fitness goals that women might have.

Now, we’re not suggesting that any of you are trying to get an hourglass figure. Some of you might but that’s a conversation for another day. Waist trainers for men were instead designed to be used alongside a workout to enhance results. Belly fat can be reduced, abs can be toned more effectively, and you’ll basically get your sweat on more easily when wearing one.

They work by stimulating thermal activity in the core of your body which in turn increases the amount of sweat that your body produces. This is done due to waist trainers for men usually being made of materials such as neoprene that have insulating properties. This means that when working out, you’re going to be sweating more than usual, losing more water weight, burning belly fat, and toning up your abdominal muscles.

In short, a waist trainer for men can be used to:

  • Abdominal Training
  • Weight Lifting/Bodybuilding
  • Burning Increased Calories During Cardio
  • Core Training
  • Increasing Metabolic Rate

Furthermore, there are additional benefits to using a waist trainer. They can reduce the risk of injury during a workout due to the support the waist trainer provides for the abdominal and lower back muscles in your body. Due to being designed to be worn tightly around your waist, they will also help to reduce your appetite and thus increase the chances of losing weight.

Simply put, if you’re trying to lose that beer belly you have invested so heavily in over the years or are looking to tone your abdominals at home using some of the best 50 home gym equipment around, or at the gym, a waist trainer will provide you with what you need.


What Type of Waist Trainers for Men are Available?

When you’re considering purchasing a waist trainer, it’s important to understand that while they might all look similar in the main, they will all be different. What we mean by that is that some will be designed with a focus on providing a good level of core stability, others might be designed with more focus being placed on enhancing lower back support, and others will prioritize comfort.

There’s also going to be differences in the materials used although most will use either neoprene, latex, or spandex. You’ll also notice differences in how they are fastened around your waist with zippers or Velcro being the most commonly used method.

With all that said, they all essentially try to do do the same thing, decrease the size of your waist when combined with frequent use and working out. It’s just that they might all go about it in slightly different ways.

In terms of the different types of men’s waist trainers, you’re generally going to find that some are belts while others are vests.

  • Belt Waist Trainers – Waist trainer belts are essentially what they sound like. Rather than being a full-on corset that compresses your entire torso, they will be a wide belt that simply wraps around your abdominal area. These are ideal if you want to lose belly fat fast, tone up your abdominal muscles or want a bit more flexibility during your workouts.
  • Vest Weight Trainers – Waist trainer vests, on the other hand, are closely related to corsets as they are generally compressed vests that are zipped up. They will cover most of your torso and are therefore better equipped for working on a wider range of muscles and body fats. These can limit your flexibility but are certainly the best bet if you want increased sweating across a wider area.

You’ll also find that many of the waist trainers on our list are actually unisex. No this doesn’t mean they’ll be pink or covered in glitter, just that they will also be able to fit a woman as well. We do recommend that should you be sharing one with your other half, that you do at least have the decency to wash it after you’ve used it. That is, unless she really does deserve to smell you’re the odor caused by your excessive body sweat and wear a damp and sticky vest or belt.

How to Use a Waist Trainer?

Firstly, it’s important to understand that a waist trainer is not going to magically make your waist shrink and become toned within a few weeks after some minimal exercise. This is not some kind of magic device – you’re going to have to put some work in with for at least several months before you start to see the results that you want.

  • What are your goals?

Before you even start to use a waist trainer for men, the first thing you’ll need to do is identify what it is that you’re specifically seeking. This will make a difference in your decision as to which waist trainer to purchase. If you’re hoping to reduce your belly fat, you’re probably going to be better off getting a waist trimmer belt. On the other hand, if you wanted to focus on your whole torso or wanted to tone up muscle rather than lose weight, a waist trainer vest will probably be your best option.

  • Strap it on!

Your next step is nothing more than putting on your waist trainer. Now some of these can be worn over your clothes, others can be worn under, and some will work better with no clothes at all. Make sure you read the instructions regarding wearing your waist trainers and belts and you should learn everything that you need to know.

  • Get Moving (or not)

Now as most of you will know when you’re trying to lose weight, you’re going to have to do some exercise. Well, with many of these belts, this can at least be a little more lenient than normal. This is because some off these things can get you sweating from doing nothing more than wearing during a normal daily routine.

That said, if you really wanted to see fast results, you should consider getting a little more active. A session down the gym with some high cardio work is a good shout here. Do something that is going to get your heart pumping and that sweat flowing. We suggest that you start out slowly, and incrementally increase the level of activity that you’re doing when wearing a waist trainer. This is at least until you get used to it, how it works, and the extra work it’s going to make your inner body do.

The great thing is that you can wear these anywhere and for as long as you like. Want to wear them all day? Go ahead. Want to wear them even when you’re in the office? Then pull out your under desk treadmill when the boss isn’t looking and go get your sweat on.

Conclusion

Waist trainers are all generally designed to do the same thing and that is to heat up or stimulate your body to produce more sweat. The only thing is that some are far more effective than others at doing this. For that reason alone you shouldn’t be rushing out and buying the first one that you see. Instead, you should be listening to our own expertise in losing fat (or not in some of our cases) and doing a bit of your own homework before coming to a decision.

Additionally, some are designed to help you to lose weight, others to tone you up, and some are there to provide support to the back and provide post-workout pain relief. It’s important that you get one that not only has plenty of great reviews and is from a reputable company but one that is going to serve your own purpose for having one in the first place.

If you haven’t made a decision from the products we reviewed above, why not take a look at the three that we picked out for our budget, premium, and editor’s choices? These are our favorites for differing reasons and we’re confident that each will give you what you’re looking for.

Reduce Head Injuries by Picking The Best Baseball Helmets

Choosing the right baseball helmet is important for players. To help them pick the best one, they need to understand the pros and cons of their top choices. Baseball players started wearing helmets during the year 1950 to avoid serious injuries, especially head trauma.

The baseball helmet is worn mostly in the game. It serves as protection to the player’s head from pitches. Due to wild pitches that can hit the player seriously, and even fatally, a baseball helmet is required as an essential gear in the game of baseball.

How To Pick The Best Baseball Helmet

It is not easy to choose a baseball helmet, especially if you are a newbie in this game. But safety is very important in sports, including baseball, so the search for the best baseball helmet becomes crucial too. Bat Sleeves helmet comparison helps buyers find the right helmet for their kids or loved ones who are into baseball. Here are a few factors to consider when scouting for baseball helmets.

It’s one of the most vital aspects of buying a helmet. You need to measure your head to purchase a helmet that fits you. You can’t go for a bigger one because it can easily whip off your head and cause injuries. If you pick a small helmet, there is a possible cut off circulation in the player’s head. That can be very dangerous as well. So, size always matters.

What we need to keep in mind in buying a high-quality helmet is the reconditioning option. You can see it in the label or packaging of the helmet. Make sure to find it in the label first before buying it.

  • The Faceguard

It is the best feature any helmet could ever have. The faceguard will protect your whole face, especially your nose and mouth from injury while performing the game. It is designed with a bracket made of metals for more security purposes.

  • Maintenance

If you properly maintain your helmet, it will take care of you too. But in buying the right one, make sure a protective case is also included to store it in a safer place. You must not leave it anywhere, especially under the sun, because it might get overheat, harden and break.

  • Ear Guards

The best baseball helmet features ear guards to protect the player’s upper body as much as possible. The flaps can cover your ears each time a ball hits you. You must get used to it because you might not hear clearly with the ear guards, but your safety is essential above anything else. But some helmets have one ear guard only so you can communicate with your team. You must check the rules of the league to ensure that you are following the regulations about wearing ear guards.

The size can help you find the right fit. The best way to know if the helmet fits on you properly is to place it over your head and shake your head alternately in turns. If it’s starting to move around while you are shaking it, it’s best to pick a small-sized helmet for a sure fit.

Additional Features – Why Do You Need Them?

Each helmet is different, so are the features they offered too. The additional features included in a helmet can give players a maximum degree of comfort, safety, and personal touch. Some features added are facial protection, color options, and chin straps. Some also included visors feature and more patterned designs. It’s important to look for these additional features and ensure that you are getting the right pick you will love.

Hopefully, this article helps you pick the best baseball helmets for you. Always choose your safety because it’s the only way to enjoy the baseball game you love

Let the YuJet Surfer take you for a ride this summer

Folks lucky enough to have a sizeable outdoor space at home should welcome the summer months in style. Just recently, we were featuring some great items to enhance your isolation experience. There was this huge 85-inch Samsung Terrace – a weather-resistant TV – for entertainment. Another was a minimalist charcoal grill from Spark Grills. Up next is something awesome for those who plan to hit the beach soon. This here is the YuJet Surfer, which the manufacturer describes as an electric jetboard.

While the concept is not exactly new, YuJet hopes to cater to the needs of adventurous souls who love to carve through water. While most watersports rely on the wind and the waves, the Surfer hopes to deliver enjoyment anytime and anywhere. Roughly the size of a regular surfboard, experts will feel right at home. Meanwhile, newbies can also enjoy the ride with its user-friendly controls.

The Surfer promises a lightweight yet versatile platform courtesy of its carbon fiber construction and hydrodynamic design.

To ensure that the fun does not end prematurely, YuJet equips it with a waterproof and rechargeable 36-mAh lithium-ion battery.

A full charge should be good enough for up to 40 minutes or a 16-mile range.

BMW and 3T collaborate to give us this special edition Exploro

In the past, BMW has partnered with other brands to create amazing products that flaunt outstanding performance and impressive design.

Teaming up with 3T, the company is lending its skills to enhance the Exploro road bike. So far, from a visual standpoint, things are looking great.

The Italian company is already a renowned brand when it comes to reliable bicycles. Thus, the addition of BMW to the list just makes it even better.

The Forever Floatride GROW from Reebok Are A 100% Sustainable Pair Of Running Shoes

No matter how we want it to be all okay, we can’t turn out back to what’s happening to our planet. Our worst fears are already here as climate change is devastating the world. All living things are affected, and it will only get worse if humanity does not put a stop what’s causing it. Therefore, several industries are implementing new ways to lessen environmental impact. Each segment is exploring new ways to reduce emissions, while others are finding new methods for sustainability. This time, we’re highlighting Reebok and its Forever Floatride GROW.

Plastic is one of the biggest contributors to landfills and marine pollution as these are generally non-recyclable. Reebok, along with other sports apparel brands such as Adidas, Converse, and Nike are showcasing a lineup of footwear that are practically renewable. Through innovative recycling methods, these manufacturers are putting waste plastic to good use. Meanwhile, there is another way to avoid adding to the waste dilemma. That’s where the Forever Floatride GROW comes in.

According to Rebook, its new model is a 100% sustainable product. It’s not releasing anytime soon, but it is something we are eager to have on our feet. The brand is not the only one to make the claim. Native Shoes previously gave us the Plant Shoe, which as the name suggest is as eco-friendly as it gets. The materials it uses are all sourced from various flora. Meanwhile, the Forever Floatride GROW is using a mix of algae, natural rubber, castor beans, and eucalyptus. We are seriously hoping that more companies adopt a similar approach.

On Gives You Performance And Style With The Limited Edition Cloud Hi Edge

Sneaker culture is growing exponentially over the years. It used to be that people bought sneaker purely for athletic purposes. Now, consumers are more flexible and prefer to buy pairs that are fashionable and offer comfort over performance. Striking the right balance between aesthetics, ergonomics, and functionality can be difficult for manufacturers. Yet, sometimes the stars align perfectly and deliver just enough inspiration to craft an attractive set of kicks. One such example is the On Cloud Hi Edge.

On is a Swiss Brand recognized for footwear that caters to individuals who love running. Now, it’s making a small shift to give its fans a reliable running shoe that also makes the owner look good during leisurely engagements. The Cloud Hi Edge does not only appear stylish for urban excursions, but it is ready to adapt the moment you shift to a sprint.

The manufacturer is currently offering four colourways to suit anyone’s tastes. We have Sand/Brown, Sand/Acacia, Ink/Mustard, and Juniper/Glacier. In our opinion, all variants look remarkable. There enough contrast between the shades and just the right amount of bright tones. The latter is a common feature among running shoes to keep users visible in low-light situations.

According to On, the Cloud Hi Edge is a limited-edition release with street-ready style in mind. It may be an experimental venture, but we can’t help but want more of it in the future. Details about the materials are quite scarce, but we do know that the upper mesh comes with a mix of different textiles. It sits on Heloin superfoam with CloudTec outsole. Moreover, the Speedboard polymer gives owners superior support and assistance during their runs.

Check Out These Limited Edition Nike x MMW Free TR 3 SP Camo Sneakers

The Nike x MMW Free TR 3 SP Camo is another pair of kicks that flaunts an outdoor or tactical vibe thanks to the camouflage print. This limited-edition item is only available via the 1017 ALYX 9SM website. This is the latest of many footwears designed by Matthew M. Williams for Nike.

The Velcro strap that holds it securely in place makes it easy to detach the outsole.

Upon removal, users can still enjoy the superior cushioning and performance of the Free Run outsole. The upper is a mix of synthetic fabric and leather with a side zipper to give it a snug fit for the user. The laces allow you to make the necessary adjustments to ensure comfort as well.

The Headless Electric Cruiser Gets Rid Of The Handheld Controller

If you don’t like the look of electric skateboards that make use of a handheld controller, definitely try this Headless Electric Cruiser.

This one differentiates itself from the rest of the e-skateboard pack by ditching the classic handheld controller and putting a foot-controlled power in place of it. You don’t need a remote to run, in other words. It works quite like a standard skateboard, although it measures much shorter than regular ones.

Even still, the control mechanism is really intuitive. Instead of flubbing the whole thing with complicated controls, you can step on one and use it just like a classic skateboard. To get some electricity running, you just get on the Headless Electric Cruiser, push off, then place your foot on the button built into the deck.

Doing so will let the Headless Electric Cruiser maintain the speed at which you set off. Which is all to say you can concentrate on actually riding and not fussing with controls or buttons like on other e-skateboards. When you need to slow down, just lift your heel. Simple as that. And when you want to pick up speed, push off a bit harder and do the same thing — step on the button.

With a top speed of 12mph, the Headless Electric Cruiser doesn’t come as fast as some boards. However, this makes it speedy enough for safe travel that’s still fun. Onboard, you’ll find a 22W motor powerful enough to transport everyone from teenage kids to six-footer jocks. The skateboard offers a range of six miles. It weighs only 5.5 pounds, making it one of the most lightweight e-skateboards around.

Nike’s Newest Air Jordan XXXIV Is One Of Its Lightest Ever

Look at the Air Jordan XXXIV, one of Nike’s most lightweight pair of kicks thus far. Its vision? To make the best basketball shoes for future stars of the vaunted sport. Says Gentry Humphrey, VP of Jordan Brand Footwear:

“The Air Jordan signature game shoes have become the most influential line of performance footwear in basketball history”

The Air Jordan XXXIV introduces “new, proprietary innovation” that extends the line’s game-changing legacy to a new generation of athletes. In terms of design, Nike stripped away all the unnecessary material to achieve a minimalist look. The brand took things from the tooling and upper, leaving only elements athletes will need.

Work on the new pair began with feedback gathered for the Air Jordan XXXIII, according to Jordan Brand designer Tate Kuerbis. Athletes they interviewed said they wanted improved traction and reduced weight. Those two things became Nike’s two starting points. They focused on athletes who play constantly above the rim and tried to make something more explosive than last generation’s pair.

With the Air Jordan XXXIV, you’ll find the official debut of the Jordan Eclipse Plate. This technology, consisting of two Pebax pieces and a forefoot Zoom Air unit, allows for optimal explosion off the foot. Here’s Kuerbis on the technology:

“We achieve this by thinking about the type of plate materials used and how we can harness the principal value of each element.”

Select Jordan Brand athletes and partner high school and collegiate teams will wear the Air Jordan XXXIV. The new pair of kicks will land Sept. 25.

Throw It Back With The Adidas Liberty Cup Shoes

Adidas proves it’s got the skateboarding subculture in check with these new kicks. Meet the new Liberty Cup sneakers, which come as part of the brand’s FW19 lineup. The silhouette throws it back to good old ‘90s, the era of dial-up connections, baggy jeans, and MTV back when it still showed music videos.

‘90s is also a triumphant era for the skateboarding community. Not just that, tennis, too. At the time, many people didn’t know that both these worlds intersected for some reason, with tennis silhouettes heavily influencing skating shoes that would later arrive. The new Liberty Cup kicks continue this golden age by offering something that includes peak performance attributes with a style as vibrant and colorful as its predecessor.

As you can see, the Liberty Cup shoes feature a white and yellow-green color combination, and they come constructed with a blend of premium leather, suede, and knit-mesh. Not a combination you expect would work these days, but they do. Stylistically, at least. We’ve yet to see if they perform just as well as they look.

You’ll find yellow and white detailing gliding down the shoes’ vamp, plus a teal hue rests on the midsole, offering up a nice, welcome contrast. The vulcanized mid-to-upper and gum sole feature bounce tooling, providing high-impact protection and stability. In other words, athletic will have a field day with these shoes.

The hero Liberty Cup colorway hit shelves Sept. 1 via the Adidas skateboarding website. You can find it on specialty Adidas retailers worldwide. The sneaker brand will out more colorways throughout the season, all retailing $90 apiece.

The Vollebak Black Squid Jacket Is Back

We’ve covered the Vollebak Black Squid Jacket previously, but even before that was published, the garment had sold out just like that. Thankfully, Vollebak has decided to reissue the phenomenally popular jacket.

That’s right. The company is reissuing its highly reflective, iridescent, waterproof, and windproof jacket. Just for perspective on how quickly they sold out: in just three days after first being released, Vollebak completely ran out of stock.

The jacket draws inspiration from its namesake animal. The Black Squid Jacket comes embedded with over two million microscopic glass spheres. In low light, the fabric shows mostly black with tiny splashes. But step into the daylight and you’ll see it explode into a mesmerizing maelstrom of colors and hues.

Its iridescence is a huge part of its appeal. But to be fair, the jacket itself features excellent construction, proof of Vollebak’s expert craftsmanship. The silhouette cuts the sharp angles into a more streamlined profile. It comes topped with geometric cutouts for a slight dollop of flair You’d think that would make it far too flamboyant, but the result is far from being such. It’s a sophisticated jacket oozing with style.

You might think Vollebak chose to design it this way just for show. But in fact, it’s got a more practical purpose. Here’s Steve Tidball, Vollebak’s founder:

“If you get lost on a mountain at night, it is hard to find you. If a search light goes over this jacket, it would look like a star on the mountain. You would be very visible, very quickly.”

Slip On The On Cloud Edge Moonlight For Interstellar Running Performance

Honestly, we are loving the steady influx of space-themed products this month. It’s a good guess that NASA is responsible for these renewed interested regarding outer space. For those unaware, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is highlighting the golden jubilee of the first lunar landing. There is a boatload of events that are paying homage to the success of the Apollo 11 mission. Likewise, merchandise tie-ins are in full swing. A Swiss sports apparel brand joins the fun with the On Cloud Edge Moonlight.

You’ll agree that the name is a dead giveaway of the footwear’s intended tribute. Don’t bother looking for it on the outer surfaces of the shoe, because there’s something else hiding in plain sight. Barely noticeable in brightly-lit environments are the stellar patterns within the fabric of the upper. Additionally, the tongue, laces, midsole, and outsole, are getting a similar treatment. The magic happens when light hits the shoe in darkness as the reflective materials mimic the stunning beauty of a starlit night sky.

The brand is calling the colorway of this limited edition pair of kicks Iris/Dust and it looks awesome. As with any running shoe, ventilation is essential, which is why the outer mesh material of the upper is breathable. To keep water from seeping into the shoe, there are plastic coatings on the toe cap. Remember what we pointed out earlier,

The On Cloud Edge Moonlight features a nod to lunar landings via a print of the moon’s surface on the sock liner. Finally, the CloudTec outsoles provide superior cushioning and superior traction. This shoe has every right to boast about its interstellar pedigree thanks to its partnership with PTScientists – a space and lunar research startup in Berlin.

The Joyride Run Flyknit Are Running Shoes For People Who Hate Running

Nike unveils its newest proprietary cushioning system, called Joyride. Like most of its previous systems, this new variant is lightweight, offers a high level of energy return. But what makes it unique is that it boasts thousands of little TPE beads, placed strategically in areas where the foot lands when in motion.

This new system has been years in the making, according to Nike. The company drew inspiration from a common observation that runners preferred walking or running on softer ground over concrete paths in cities.

“We took that insight and married it with this notion of sand,” says Nike executive Barton. “‘[in essence] that sensation of taking your shoes and socks off at the beach, where you first step onto it and it conforms to your toes and your feet.”

In effect, wearing the Joyride Run Flyknit shoes is like stepping on bubbles, but we’ve yet to test how true that is. On paper, the technology seems pretty impressive. Those TPE beds can bend and flex in all directions, which explains why Nike calls this system multi-dimensional displacement. In effect, it means each wearer can enjoy a personalized experience.

The system will make a debut via a new pair of kicks called the Joyride Run Flyknit. Unfortunately, it will be handed off only to members on July 25. Don’t fret, though — the general public can purchase a pair come August 15. It will cost $180. More Joyride variants will come out through to September. For more information, make sure to hit the link below.

Polar Ignite Makes Fitness Tracking Simple

The smartwatch space has been rather stale in several years past, with only Apple seemingly taking the reins. But a new challenger would very much like to change the way things are. Enter the Polar Ignite fitness watch.

Just announced, Polar’s new tracker is a mid-range GPS sports watch that bundles some of the technology from its Vantage lines with improvements in sleep tracking, overnight recovery insights, and more.

The new Polar Ignite is the watchmaker’s thinnest and lightest entry yet, which is sure to please customers who don’t want their wrist watches too bulky. On a single charge, the watch lasts up to five days, which is neither impressive nor too atrocious. It’s the sweet spot, and for $229 you get your money’s worth.

New features include Sleep Plus Stages, Nightly Recharge, FitSpark, and Serene. It also lets you track data in more than 100 sports. It comes with a so-called Precision Prime advanced optical heart rate monitoring technology. With three sensor types, this watch should provide you with super accurate and reliable heart data.

We’re not sure if this is really going to hold a candle to the Apple Watch, marketing-wise. It’s certainly brimming with heaps of functionality, but Apple’s strength lies in its ability to market luxury, ease of use, and its signature “it just works” ethos.

The Polar Ignite is available now in white, yellow, and black band choices. Additional bands, if you want to get them, cost $25 apiece. If you don’t have an Apple Watch yet or aren’t really a fan of Apple’s approach to fitness, this is worth considering.

Project Angel Honda Grom By Industrial Moto

Normally, cruising on a motorbike for pleasure and fun is a solo experience unless somebody else is sitting behind you. Unlike the one driving, the passenger usually is getting the short end of the stick when it comes to enjoyment. Hence, a custom project aims to correct that oversight by outfitting the stock bike with an awesome add-on. The Project Angel Honda Grom from Industrial Moto aims to share all of the good stuff with a passenger for a noble cause.

This is a special build courtesy of the good folks from Industrial Moto in addition to a Gofundme crowdfunding drive. This is to help out a kindhearted soul by the name of Chris (a former US Marine), who wanted to do something extraordinary for a member of his family. As it turns out, his brother Nick is suffering from Angelman syndrome, which affects his range of movement. It appears that the motorcycle blogger wants to share his passion with his sibling.

Chris reveals that he really loves the original Project GUS Honda Grom that was unveiled earlier this year. The donor bike is a 2018 MSX125 Grom that comes with a utility sidecar for people to haul stuff around. Moreover, it features an all-terrain configuration that lets you go almost anywhere you want. On the other hand, the Project Angel Honda Grom version is fitted with a unique sidecar setup. This version will allow Nick to safely join Chris for a ride. So far, this seems to be a one-off project only, but those interested can still contact Industrial Moto regarding the original model.

Nike Metcon 5

Wearing the right footwear for various activities can definitely make a difference. Manufacturers closely study what athletes need when designing a shoe for certain sports to deliver performance and comfort. With that in mind, it’s not often that we find an all-around model that can adapt to almost everything. Yet, the Nike Metcon 5 proves that it can handle any challenge that comes your way. In other words, CrossFit enthusiasts are going to love what it offers.

As indicated by the number, the Metcon 5 is the fifth-generation model of the series. The original made its debut in 2015 with succeeding iterations getting significant upgrades each time. We can safely say that it might be the best and most versatile footwear for all kinds of fitness routines.

Nike wants consumers to know that it will meet high expectations. Therefore, that company is subjecting these kicks to extensive testing from the very best.

CrossFit superstars Lauren Fisher and Mat Fraser took the shoes through a rigorous menu of workouts. After running the gauntlet, it seems that the new version is passing with flying colors. Just like most modern footwear, there is ample amount of cutting-edge technology behind its performance.

Taking the haptic system of its predecessor, the Nike Metcon 5 adds a few tweaks of its own. These include, additional cushioning on the tongue, wider heels, a Nike Hyperlift insert, and so much more. The brand does not want to completely rewrite the recipe lest it becomes too unfamiliar for long-time users.
