Fleet Feet Sports Fashion Show

TGI almost Friday! It has been a busy past two weeks with lots of fun filled activities, a meet and greet with Chicago Blogger Network, and covering a natural hair event for the Examiner. Last night I checked out Fleet Feet’s See and Be Seen fashion show at Second City.
Fleet Feet employees, local athletes, and a few Chicago newscasters modeled the latest gear for cold weather running. My fave brands Brooks and Under Armour were in the show, and a few other lines I had never heard of like Craft, Saloman, and Skirt Sports (loved the Tough Girl Top). It was all nice, practical stuff I wouldn’t mind owning. Fleet Feet closed out the show with its most interesting piece, Nike’s Vapor Flash Jacket. It glows. Ok, not really, it reflects. But if one evening while in your car you happen upon a pack of runners wearing this jacket, you may think you’re witnessing an alien invasion.
After the show, we were treated to a little party at the Piper’s Alley store to eat, consume alcohol and shop, of course.
We each got a swag bag filled with some pretty decent running swag, arm warmers, a safety light, a tech fabric cap and other goodies. Items I will actually use while running outdoors this winter. Combining two loves, running and shopping into one event was not a bad deal at all! The entire night benefited Gilda's Club, which offers free support for everyone living with or affected by cancer. The fun continues this weekend; I’ll be volunteering at the Girls on the Run 5K. I ran the race a couple of years ago, so I’m looking forward to another inspiring experience. Thanks again for commenting on the Gtabbers giver-away post. Rebecca, be sure to e-mail your mailing address at!
