A true ruler in the athletic game, Nike prefers keeping it minimal yet so stylish with its iconic swoosh logo. Their fashion-forward aesthetic and practical functionality make them one of the largest athletic shoe and apparel brands globally. Opt for their Jordan Jumpman Classics (THB 1,100) which is a colourful take on athletic wear and adds a dash of funkiness to your fitness regime. Or, go for their fun Nike Sportswear tees (THB 1,100) that are not only comfy for working out but make for fine lifestyle wear, too. We couldn’t leave out our cult-favourite Nike Sportswear Swoosh pants (THB 3,300) that turn street style into activewear with such ease.
We couldn’t have an activewear roundup without the old hip brother of Nike’s all American vibe — Adidas. There’s no doubt that we are all a die-hard fan of Adidas’s iconic classic look that brings out all the sportiness hiding inside of us. Grab the firebird track jacket (THB 3,000) which features a lightweight tricot fabric and flaunts a smooth, shiny look. If you are not out for a jog and prefer something light, then their Essential 3-stripes Chelsea shorts (THB 800) and your favourite football team jersey would keep your energy going. The global brand’s workout clothes are not only sleek and ample but also very versatile. Adidas is for those who want to look cool while hitting the gym.
Under Armour’s sports apparel always makes us look better whether we are athletes or new to the fitness game. Our eyes are on the Men’s SC30 Sleeveless hoodie (THB 2,390) that is stylishly cool and has a smooth outer layer with a 3-panel hood making it comfortable to wear even in Bangkok’s blazing weather. Their Men’s SC30 Elevated Tank (THB 1,074) is another attractive poece that is not only insanely lightweight but features an anti-odour technology, making it the perfect attire when doing an intense routine. Under Armour’s Athlete Recovery Track Suit is the ultimate track pant you would want to own because it has been rigorously engineered to fuel muscle restoration wherever the game takes you.
Keeping it casual, New Balance’s fitness apparel is quite the up-and-coming brand among millennials. The ginger pink Printed Fast Flight SS (Approx. THB 1, 115) is a versatile running top perfect for both gym and outdoor workouts. It flaunts the NB DRY fast-drying technology which wicks away any moisture from your skin, keeping you cool so you can sweat it out without worrying. For more slim fit wear, New Balance’s Fast Flight Men’s Training Tank (THB 690) is perfect for the city’s humid weather. New Balance can fill your workout wardrobe with some contemporary style and essentials.
If you’re in the mood for more vibe-y wear, then TA Active also houses a men’s activewear collection that is stylishly contemporary and cool. The Powerful Mesh Men’s Shorts (THB 1,890) is fitted with nylon blend spandex fabric that can be worn for all types of workouts.
