Remember the mis-matched Jordan 1 collab that was released 4 years ago? How about the last year’s rainbow swoosh Blazer Mid? This year, Nike and prolific artist/OG skateboarding great Lance Mountain have joined forces once again for another Nike SB Blazer collab.

It is called the Nike SB Zoom Blazer Mid “Lance Mountain” - a skate shoe that features an upper constructed of faded light blue suede reminiscent of a well-worn pair of denim, while accents arrive via the large white Swoosh. It comes with a bold embroidered English rose on the heel collar, inspired by by Lance Mountain’s English father. The shoe’s look is completed by a stately white midsole/gum outsole, and a Mountain-designed Nike SB stencil logo arrives on the sockliner for a little extra collabo goodness. $85.

We all love the feel of the sunshine on our face. For morning runners, you can add the rush of adrenaline as our feet hit the pavement or dirt with our top notch sneakers from asics au. Besides the joy that running brings, there are some other incredible benefits to exercising in the morning. Let’s explore a few of the best reasons why you should hit the road early every day.

Start Your Morning with Energy!

We have all heard about the runner’s “high”, but did you know that this was a very real biochemical reaction in your body? When running in the morning, your body releases hormones called endorphins. These tiny little hormones react with your brain, triggering feelings of positivity and minimizing any physical or mental pain. The feeling is actually very similar to the drug morphine. This incredible feeling keeps you feeling elevated first thing in the morning. Talk about a great way to start out your day!

Stress Reducer

Remember those hormones we talked about? Well, they also help reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. For those who suffer from high stress, life can get unbearably lethargic and fatiguing. Give your body an energetic boost with a solid morning run. Many medical professionals agree that the positive effects of exercises are often similar to that of antidepressants. Besides reducing stress, meeting running goals helps boost your overall confidence. This also helps with maintaining and positive outlook on life.

If you need a little bit of motivation, employ your own cheerleading team by running with a friend or two. Call up a friend to meet you a few mornings a week. While you won’t get in much conversation, the accountability will help you both keep your health in track. In fact, this additional support will not only energize you emotionally, but will help you physically release stress before you have to start on your daily routine with work and family.

A Wealth of Health Benefits

Needless to say, running is a valuable aerobic exercise that significantly reduces stress and maintains good physical and mental health. Some of the specific ways that you can manage good health by running include maintaining a healthy weight, exercising your cardiovascular system, and building endurance. Lowering chances of obesity will decrease your probability of getting diseases like Type II Diabetes, which is linked to excessive weight gain. A healthy weight also minimizes the effects of age-related illnesses like arthritis and injuries to knee joints. Exercising your heart will help you thwart more serious heart disease.

By building up your endurance and strength by regular exercise each morning, you can be sure to enjoy many long years of quality life. Developing a strong morning run routine can help you maintain these physical benefits long term.

Using roller skates to have fun on the move or to get fitter is a great plan. You can burn over 400 calories an hour (even 600 calories if you’re really moving fast) with roller skating, so it’s efficient and more fun than losing weight in a gym. It’s also a participation sport, so you can go with friends or a loved one and share the enjoyment together.

Here are a few suggestions for having fun and being healthier on wheels.

Keeping Fit on Roller Skates

Anyone who doesn’t enjoy walking in the park or jogging on a treadmill in a gym because they find it too boring will have more fun with roller skates. Being able to use a quality pair of roller skates to whizz around the park or practice your moves in a roller rink provides ideal exercise to improve your fitness. Skating is easier on the joints compared to running too.
From the wide outstretched legs to putting your thighs through their paces with quick stops and directional maneuvers, let alone taking a ramp to fly into the air and land safely, you’re getting a workout on wheels when you strap on your roller skates. If you make it a full body action when increasing your speed by bending forward slightly and pumping your arms forward and back, then you’ll get the arms, shoulders and back into the groove too. The hourly calorie burn is closer to running than walking, so anyone who has some pounds to lose will surely get a noticeable benefit.

Skating Birthday Party Venue

An indoor roller park is a great place to have a kids’ party. Most organized parks have a café or restaurant that can serve tasty food for all ages. Some have birthday party packages that include skating time, a special area just for the party and catered food. It depends on the size of the venue what the maximum allowable number of guests is, including the responsible parents, so be sure to check with the chosen venue first.

Learning Tricks

Before you can try some tricks on your roller skates, you must get the basics right. Standing up straight and holding position is the first thing you must be able to do. Avoiding falling over every couple of minutes is certainly on the list too! You also want to practice skating forward comfortably, taking turns at increasing speed and not wobbling as you do so. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’re ready for something more advanced.

The first thing to learn is how to safely skate backward. You’ll want to find a flat area without anyone who’s likely to skate into your path. You need enough flexibility to use your knees to balance properly and avoid standing completely upright when you do. You may prefer to learn to skate in a circle or a figure-8 first, rather than skating backward in a straight line. It’s completely up to you.
There are plenty of things to try on wheels once you have a good pair of skates and you’re confident rolling around on them. The more regularly you practice, the better you’ll get too. Then almost anything is possible.

Offered at around $80 USD per pair, this shoe is on the higher end of the skate shoe price spectrum, but then again, it's considerably worth the price given its durability and comfort. It looks like an instant classic. That's why when I find deals online, I took advantage of it like this one from Adidas.

The Adidas Busenitz Core Black / Solid Grey will now cost you only $40. Cool eh? I already bought mine as it's one of my favorite shoes for skate boarding. This shoe elevates the heel placing me more on the balls of my feet. Also, it feels like it's hugging your foot and there is some good padding on the tongue. The suede toe covering is great for flicking and the stitching helps hold its form. The only drawback is that the tongue is not held in place by lateral elastic bands and I frequently have to adjust the tongue every so often while skating. All and all, I love this shoe, and it is definitely good for skating! $40.

DC Shoes tapped deep into their archives to bring back Josh Kalis’ iconic skate shoe. This re-issue comes with more innovative features whilst oozing with a lot of ‘90s vibe. It's without a doubt perfect for those looking for a retro yet updated look. Its lightweight and comfortable construction is the low-top shoe’s main attraction. $80.
