Things We Love | SPIBelt – the Small Personal Items Belt for Runners

I love to run, but I don’t like to have things in my pockets, and I don’t like to hold things in my hands. At the very least, I need my iPhone and my car keys, and, lately, I’ve taken to carrying a small canister of bear spray due to very, very large footprints I’ve come across on my daily route.

This¬†SPIbelt (that’s short for Small Personal Items belt) fits the bill nicely. It’s like a fanny pack, without the fanny:

SPIbelt - Small Personal Item Belt - Great for Runners!

Invented and manufactured in Austin, Texas, the SPIbelt has caught on as a great accessory for runners and non-athletes. It features Spandex and elastic stretch material that will fit your waist and all your small items. The length of the zipper is just 6 inches, but don’t let that fool you. This pack will expand in all directions to hold everything you need:¬† your iPod, Blackberry, cell phone, keys, GU packs, wallet, and more. The SPIbelt is designed so the goodies in your belt don’t bounce, ride, or shift while running or doing other activities.

Beyond your daily run, you can use your SPIbelt for sporting events, traveling, carrying diabetic supplies, shopping, and more.

Things We Love – Silver Linings Shoe Liners

You know those favorite pair of shoes that you love to wear without socks…because it’s springtime for heaven’s sake, and it feels so, so good to go sockless? But there are times – and there are shoes – that really shouldn’t be worn without socks because, for whatever reason, they start to smell awful.

There’s help for that.

Silver Linings Odor Absorbing Shoe Liners (3 Pairs) - Beige/Nude

Silver Linings are ultra-thin, odor absorbing shoe liners designed for women who wear shoes without socks. They are infused with a silver-based technology that prevents bacterial odor. This specific technology is also EPA-registered and environmentally friendly. Silver Linings keep feet fresh and odor-free while preserving the life of flats and heels. Unlike traditional insoles, Silver Linings are ultra-thin (~1mm) and barely noticeable when worn.

The price on these at is just $16 for 3 pairs, and you can get coupons here. So get some, and enjoy your socklessness!
