Print Story - Star Cover

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. Proliferating a single star (represented by a four-pointed directional cross) into a sky pattern, this joyful composition symbolizes the never-ending fabric of time and represents a connection across generations to ancestors who guide us, lighting our path.

Print Story - Summit
design evolved from a conversation around "mountain logic" — how a runner forms the link between earth and sky through their ascent and descent of vertical terrain. Look for the ladder in the print, symbolizing that connection and transcendence.

Print Story - Under Cover

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. ​​A monochromatic, reflective version of the “Star Cover” print rotated on a 45º axis like stars shooting across the night sky. This design represents a connection across generations to ancestors who guide us, lighting our path.

Almost like wearing nothing at all!

These are impossibly lightweight and super quick drying. They are perfect for those hot summer days where you can hit a sprinkler or two on the run. I'm getting used to the freeing feeling of these, they feel flowy instead of my usual compression gear. Highly recommend!

Barely there shorts

I love these running shorts! Once I get started, I don't notice them at all. I usually use these for short runs or longer runs close to a home base so I don't have to pack much. My phone is too large for the back pocket so I carry my phone in a SPIbelt.
