InStance: 2nd Annual Summer Social

The 2nd Annual VRC Flight Crew X East Van Run Crew Summer Social was on! Last year they took the crew out to False Creek, so this year they combined their 5K and 10K routes and headed West towards Point Grey to show the out of town runners another side of this great city.

From there they double backed along Kits Beach, Vanier Park and back to the shop to round out a social 6.5km. Once back at the shop their friends at Postmark Brewing re-hydrated the crew.

INSTANCE was on hand with their fresh new Fall 2016 RUN collection.

If you are looking for a fun team to run with in Vancouver check out East Van Run Crew Monday’s and VRC Flight Crew Thursdays & Sundays for runs, good times, and beers.

Native Shoes: Meet The Monaco

4UP - IMAGE 4 4UP - IMAGE 1l

We welcome with open arms, and feet, both members of the Monaco family: the Low and Mid. Built upon a single piece EVA cup outsole for that familiar comfort, we ditched the traditional perforation, favoring debossed indentations in the classic pattern.

A duo of streamlined microfiber silhouettes, the Monaco makes its debut in two rise lengths, and a color palette reminiscent of the soft allure from the suave decade.

What’s not to say about this pair? With slim profiles and no-sew accents, they’re surely shoes for the modern trendsetter.
