What: Frustrated by the lack of creativity in the running apparel industry, Tracksmith’s CEO, Matt Taylor set out to produce premium performance running apparel that pays homage to the timeless style and culture of the sport.
When: Launched, July 2014
Where to Get It: Tracksmith.com
Why We Like It: Influenced by collegiate and traditional American track and field athletes, the New England-based running company brings back nostalgic sportswear for runners. The high quality performance collection consists of a few traditional items that you would have found on the locker room floors or the backs of Ivy League running team members.
The capsule collection offers is simplistic and functional garments such as: mesh singlets, three-panel lined running shorts, collegiate team-issued training tees, moisture wicking, water resistant performance shorts and a Factory Floor Spike Bag to hold it all.
