For athletes ...

Shady Rays sunglasses

These shades come in a huge variety of gender neutral styles -- and if you lose or break them, the company will replace your pair for free. And this will make you feel really good: Shady Rays pledged to provide 10 meals through Feeding America food banks for every order placed.

Under Armour Speedpocket running leggings

These are dubbed by Under Armour as solving all pocket problems, and they don't disappoint. A flexible front pocket holds phones up to 6 inches long, and it holds them tightly enough to contain any bounce. Bonus points for the reflective details that make runners more visible at dusk and dawn.

FWD-01 Adidas in-ear headphones

Headphones that will never get in the way during your workout or pop out of your ears mid-step or lift. We like the added "passive transparency" feature that allows you to hear surrounding noises when you need to.

Let's face it, every kid seems to want Curry 7s this year. The bonus of this new design from the Warriors legend: Under Armour has identical versions for kids and adults alike, so grab a pair for yourself as well.
