Runners wearing trucker hats? Yeah, it’s a thing. You may have noticed Ryan Hall or Jenn Shelton rocking one. Truckers are a hell of an improvement over the alternatives. Previously, our headgear was limited to a stained cotton baseball hat or a low-profile, running-specific cap. The former quickly smelled bad, and the latter just looked dumb. So runners’ adoption of this particular lid—once reserved for crusty blue-collar dudes or Brooklyn hipsters—is a good thing, not least because it injects a bit of swagger into some otherwise dorky kit. Here are our favorites.
