As active performance wear continues to progress both in technology and forward-thinking design, many designers draw their inspiration from contemporary street style and fashion. Looking to celebrate the rich culture and history of running, New England's newly launched Tracksmith merges the past with the present. Ivy league athletics and classic university track style are given the performance treatment with the latest moisture-wicking and four-way stretch materials. “We believe running deserves better,” says co-founder Luke Scheybeler (also known for co-founding Rapha). “Our goal is to redefine running one product at a time, utilizing several consumer touch points to bring reverence back to the sport.”
Whether it's training in high temperatures or race day, the Van Cortlandt Singlet ($65) and matching shorts ($60) are built for speed and comfort—cut to ensure minimal to zero chafing, and created to move moisture off the body. All of Tracksmith's offerings are designed and tested with extensive R&D on and off the track. Since running clothes don't often reveal their flaws until the mile count racks up and body-heat rises, each of the products are tested by experienced marathon runners during long training sessions.
Available as of today, Tracksmith's products are currently for sale exclusively from their webstore.
