Athleta's Collab With Olympian Allyson Felix Is the Inspo We Need to Get Back On our Workout Routine
If you’re in a bit of a slump right now when it comes to working out (don’t worry, we are too). Altheta has just given us a reason to get back on track.
The popular brand has teamed up with six-time Olympic gold medalist runner, mother and activist, Allyson Felix (the company’s first sponsored athlete in history), for a limited-edition apparel collection.
According to a press release, The Allyson Felix + Athleta collaboration celebrates Athleta’s commitment to performance perfection and the collection features details only the world’s most decorated track and field athlete could refine. Felix helped co-design the capsule with the Athleta team to empower women and girls nationally—and her daughter Camryn served as inspo for the range. Awww.
“This is something I’ve aspired to do my entire athletic career—to design for women and girls,” Felix said of the partnership. “To help them feel confident and share their worth. Athleta champions women and girls and has many initiatives focused on empowering girls through sport. That’s important to me—encouraging the next generation of girls to believe in themselves and their power—and sports can help them do that.”
The brand-new collection, which launched today, contains everything from tees and windbreaker jackets to mesh leggings and high-neck sports bras. Not to mention, the pieces won’t break the bank. We’ve skimmed the entire collection and chose our top five pieces (so you don’t have to). Happy shopping!
1. Legend High Neck Bra
Available in black and lagoon teal, this bra will support you through long distance, short distance and trail running.
2. Legend Luxe Track Pant
Designed for layering, these babies are also water repellant.
3. Legend Shortie
You simply can’t go wrong with a pair of black shorts. Especially ones made from recycled nylon with supportive compression.
4. Legend Crop Half-zip Jacket
This super lightweight and breathable jacket includes pockets and is machine washable. Win-win.
5. Legend Mesh Leggins
The best part about these? There’s a zipper at hem for an “easy slip on-and-off over shoes.”
