You don’t have to be Roger Federer or Jessica Ennis-Hill to look like a sporty superstar. This spring’s trendy athleisure looks are all about scoring points off the field. Come spring, we’re seeing a modern update with streamlined and sexy designs that mean more time going out and less time at the gym.


Olympic International has just launched their most exciting Spring/Summer collection ever! With 43 styles to choose from, fabulous design is blended with the best performance technologies to give you what you want plus the performance you need.


Says Gordon Gassert, Product Developer at Olympic International Footwear: “Sneakers are big again this summer! Weave-knits are massive in various colours and designs. Neoprene uppers with welded features, bright colours such as pink, lime, orange and yellow, as well as metallic trimmings are trending too. What is really exciting this season is that we’ve combined innovation and engineering with colours and trends in our sporting and sneaker designs. We’ve expanded our range to include everything from trainers to outdoor shoes, ladies sneakers to technical ranges for cycling, hockey, netball, track, tennis and soccer.


With regards to the expansion of their technical ranges, Gassert adds that they concentrated on making shoes that cover all aspects of the game. “Not only are they attractive, but also offer lace-locking eyelets, a very technical comfort sock with gel-pads at the various pressure points and a durable phylon-rubber outsole specific for court surfaces. We’re moving into a new space in our sports ranges and are always looking to improve on what we have and where we think the market is lacking. We have some great ideas going forward!”


Gassert continues that they improved their ranges in various fields. “We truly believe they’re right for the intended customer, but also cater to other areas of the market. We offer a great product at a great price and our ranges are getting better all the time, offering everything you need.”


According to Gassert, athleisure is blurring the lines between the clothes you’d wear to gym and those you’d wear to lunch. “It reflects a change in lifestyle. It’s so much more than a look and is here to stay. Whether you’re off to the yoga studio or hitting the streets, our new range has your lifestyle covered!”
