When it comes to competitive sports, even the smallest of details can make all the diﬀerence. We’re in a world where running shoes are constantly being re-engineered to be lighter and t-shirts dry quicker, and when there’s seconds to be shaved oﬀ of a PB, its easy to see where this obsession comes from. On the other hand, there’s the rest of us for whom sport is as much recreational as it is competitive, as we manage a kick-about with friends on a weekend and an early morning run once a week.
It’s this combination of athleticism and enjoyment that many brands are tapping in to and for me, only one brand one is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.
Tracksmith are an independent running brand who honour the very foundations that running is built on. They champion the non-professional yet competitive runners dedicated to the pursuit of personal excellence. They oﬀer well-considered and authentic products that are perfect for your training, racing and rest days.
Their pursuit for clothing excellence has allowed them to create a community of committed, likeminded runners who all share a passion for training, competing and an obsession with quality and function.
For me, Tracksmith embody exactly what running is: it’s simple, basic and hard work. Their pieces are still made with the high quality materials that we’ve come to expect but with a heavy nod to the dress of the 80’s and 90’s.
I firmly believe that Tracksmith are a brand you should definitely add into your running rotation. Written by Tom Loughran
