Bleusalt Kaia Pant If you want to run with the cool kids (and look good while doing it), pick up a pair of these flared leggings made popular by Gen Z. Actress and model Kaia Gerber teamed up with this luxury sustainable basics brand to design the high-waisted Kaia Pant. Crafted from ultra-soft fabric that is 100% sustainable and antimicrobial, they’re perfect for a workout but also so stylish that you can wear them to lunch. As a bonus, 20% of the proceeds from this product will be donated to A Sense of Home, an organization that creates homes for youth aging out of foster care, who often end up homeless. Comes in a range of women’s sizes in black, camel, gray and white. $130


Dr. Scholl’s Pisces Pool Slide Sandal Dr. Scholl’s sparked a revolution in the ’60s with its wooden sandal, now a fashion icon. The company continues to innovate and is now making shoes in a more eco-conscious way. This classic open-toe pool slide for women from the Dr. Scholl’s Original Collection has been given a sleek update. The textured leather and brush gold rivets add style, while the contoured EVA footbed makes them insanely comfortable. Perfect for wearing at the spa and pool. Choose from black, white and black/white snakeskin. $50


APL Men’s Big Logo TechLoom Slide Celebrities and fitness stars are big fans of the Los Angeles performance footwear and apparel company started by two former collegiate athletes. Their Concept 1 sneaker became the first shoe banned by the NBA for performance reasons by “providing an undue competitive advantage” to the wearer. The super lightweight and comfortable APL Big Logo TechLoom Slide is the perfect shoe to slip into after a workout. The antimicrobial mesh footbed covers a 3D molded footbed that massages your feet with every step. Select from 25 colors. $100


Vuori Ponto Performance Pant Made from Vuori’s signature knit jersey, these are one of the softest, most breathable performance pants a guy can find. The poly yarn used in the construction gets rid of the shine you find in most athletic clothing. They are moisture wicking and quick drying and have great stretch, so they won’t limit your range of motion while practicing yoga or during exercise. The more tailored modern fit gets rid of bagginess, so you can even wear them en route to the spa. Colors include black, charcoal heather, heather gray, indigo heather, blackened green heather. $84


HOKA Speed Goat 4 Hiking Shoes HOKAco-founders Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud decided to design their own running shoe because they couldn’t find one that worked on the trails they would run in the French Alps. Last year, they launched their first collection of hiking shoes, a natural progression for two guys who run on mountains. The Speed Goat 4 features a new breathable yet rugged mesh and innovative details like the Vibram Megagrip rubber outsole, which provides a secure fit and makes them a grippy in all weather conditions and terrains. At 10.8 ounces (men) and 9.2 ounces (women), they won’t take up much room in your suitcase. Available in fun color combos like Fiesta/Provincial blue. $145
