Do it Better: Men’s Workout Style
October 11, 2019
What We Considered
We know you’re either on the grind (work hard, workout harder) or you’re still working on your New Year’s resolution. Don’t worry, there’s still time - sorta. Wherever you are in the game, we do know one thing: looking good while you’re flexing is the ultimate goal. It can inspire a workout even when you aren’t in the mood and keep you feeling good on that last mile, set of arm curls or chin lifts. We don’t know your workout routine, but you get the picture.
It’s time to step up your game and push your strengths to the limits with these innovative online brands, here to improve your workout and make you look good while doing it. Definitely not the same old brands that everyone owns.
Founder Scott Bailey was challenged to run the San Francisco half marathon and the rest is history. Having spent 20 years in the shoe and apparel industry, he realized that the perfect pair of running shorts simply didn’t exist. That’s why he launched Path Projects, a company that doesn’t accept anything less than the highest quality.
Tracksmith makes top quality gear for running and recovery. They believe in competition, not because it matters if you win or lose, but because it helps you achieve personal excellence. Their gear is designed to deliver durability with high stretch and recovery - and their modern day take on a varsity look is something we can get behind.
At OV, the best way to test your endurance is by #doingthings. And that can mean anything you want. Just know that your look will be made with the best materials, ones that are crazy-soft and lightweight. Depending on what you’re up to, Outdoor Voices has the shorts, t-shirts and jackets to help you sweat.
Meet Ten Thousand: the company that knows it takes hard work and grit to reach success. This brand focuses only on the essentials, providing three basic short styles. And get this, you get to personalize them. You’ll select the lining, inseam and size to ensure that you end up with the perfect shorts.
Lane—Eight is changing the game by saying that you don’t need different types of shoes for different workouts. Their sneaker is designed for a snug fit that conforms to your feet after a few wears and gives you support for running, biking, balling– or maybe just a walk to your local food spot. They’re versatile and we don’t judge.
