New shoes 2017: APL/Lululemon
Running shoes that perfectly pair with our Lulus?! What could be better. The sleek look and pretty rose-gold shade paired with a comfy neoprene fit and flexible stitched upper make these a great runner, but also something we want to wear outside of the gym, too.
APL Women’s TechLoom Phantom Rose Gold, $185 at select Lululemon stores, including Toronto (Yorkdale Mall, Queen St W and The Local locations), Vancouver (W4th) and Edmonton (West Edmonton Mall).
New shoes 2017: Adidas Stella McCartney
Adidas by Stella McCartney never disappoints. And this latest new shoe launch is no different. The moulded cage is super comfy, and the pixelated pattern is a stylish way upgrade a basic pair of black leggings or capris. And like the other Ultrboost models before, the fit is snug and the heel-to-toe is effortless (as effortless as running can be).

New shoes 2017: Reebok Classics
Rumour has it that this model is the first-ever leather running shoe. And while calling it a launch is a bit of a stretch, we could not help but include it in this list of fall shoe must-buys. The look is retro, and the comfort is a bit stiff at first. But like anything in leather, the warmth of the body moulds the shoe for a literal customized fit. And the white-on-white stitching is perfect for our #fromwhereIstand workout selfies.
Reebok Classic Leather Shoe, $990 at aritzia.com.
