Similar to the travel pants, this shirt also comes very lightweight and breezy to wear. With soft and breathable fabric, this shirt is great for any traveler wary of the sun and heat.

This shirt will not trap heat in as an average cotton shirt might, but keep you cool as you go with its Cooltech material, which works to lower skin temperature.Short Sleeve Cool Fitness Shirt $45
ASICS Men’s GT 1000 2 Running Shoes
As a relatively new runner, I started out by using $65 Reeboks, and one of my frequent complaints was that they would become untied after a few miles. I tried the old standby, double knot, and they still didn’t stay tied. These ASICS runners with specially thin laces never get untied.
These shoes also provide a dramatically strong cushion for my feet as I run down asphault. These feel much better and don’t get as hot as the Reeboks did when I run a long distance.
The second edition GT 1000 sneakers are lightweight and comfortable. These shoes provide cushioning without being too soft, providing a rigid structure for running feet.All-black running shoes can be difficult to come by. For those who enjoy the comfort of a running shoe but do not want to wear bright neon pink when they go about daily activities, these shoes are neutral and inconspicuous.
You can buy the GT 1000 2 running shoe $62.
