Even with a closet full of red carpet-worthy looks, Katie Holmes can't resist comfy athleisure when it comes to her afternoon strolls—celebrities, they're just like us! The 44-year-old actress and mother of Suri Cruise was recently seen taking a phone call on her latest walk around New York City, looking fresh-faced and extra sporty as she donned a white InstaBreeze Training T-shirt ($50) and black Body Sculpt leggings ($80) from Fanka.


ICYDK, Fanka is an activewear brand that revolutionizes ordinary leggings and other staples with "Fabricnology," the company’s method of combining high-quality fabric with innovative technology. The goal? To produce apparel that performs well, is comfortable to wear and offers versatility in the customers’ closets. Better yet, it's all impressively affordable.

By incorporating extensive data and in-depth research from its team of designers and conceptualizers, Fanka created a women’s athleisure collection that aims to offer unparalleled performance, quality and comfort at a reasonable price point. And Holmes seems to be a fan.

As seen above, the Dawson’s Creek alum sported the Fanka Body Sculpt 7/8 leggings ($80) in a slimming black, but they're also available in multiple colorways and various lengths. The reversible leggings are made with elastane and polyamide, giving them unbelievable four-way stretch and all-over compression (tummy, thighs, calves and knees included). In fact, Fanka leggings are designed with healing properties in mind, boasting compressive tech that supposedly helps to reduce muscle soreness, prevent injury and prevent blood clots, per the brand. The pants are also designed to give your booty a nice lift, thanks to the brand’s SensELAST 3D technology.

To round out her relaxed look, Holmes paired the leggings with the Fanka InstaBreeze Training short-sleeve T-shirt ($50) in white heather, which she French-tucked into her waistband. Made from the same stretchy elastane and polyester, the sweat-wicking workout top boasts odor control and quick-drying properties—a must-have during any workout class (or sweltering summer stroll in the city).

If Holmes approves, then there’s clearly something to be said of the line. We just hope to look as good in our head-to-toe Fanka ensemble as she does.
