Why We Help

SPORTZI is a clothing line for women focused on running and style. With the current environment, women are scared to run alone. We created a partnership with Wearsafe™ technology to make women feel safe while exercising. Our primary focuses were safety and communication. We used GPS technology in clothing to act as a companion and allow women to call for help when needed.

  • 18% of women runners are sexually propositioned

ReRUN

sportz rerun

ReRUN was inspired by a classic basketball penny jersey. The front pocket, cinched-in waist, and cropped hemline take the classic penny and rejuvenate it to work with modern trends. Under this penny is a classic nylon spandex top to cover the torso and provide warmth. There are striping details on the back neckline. The leggings have the most interesting striping of the whole collection. Striping is common throughout and seen in the fishnet inserts and reflective strips. These have both and the combination takes classic leggings into a new and refreshed style. The top is constructed from a nylon spandex and the penny is an open cotton netting with a black stretch matte pleather patch pocket. The leggings are made from a zinc stretch ponte knit and classic black fishnet inserts.

UnstRUNg

sportz unstrung

This look includes a leotard with fishnet inserts which correspond to the wonder mesh found on the jacket. The jacket is simple at the top but the bottom adds more interest with the wonder mesh and drawstring pull ruffle.

The leotard is constructed from a nylon spandex and classic black fishnet while the jacket is constructed from ripstop and wonder mesh. The difference in the materials allows for interest throughout the look while keeping the color scheme simple and cohesive. UnstRUNg is a take on the classic dancer outfit but can be paired for any runner’s needs.

RoadRUNner

shortfinal

 

This look includes a cropped top with an asymmetrical mesh overlay. The shorts are more complex. They have a high cut leg line brief with leggings underneath to add warmth for the Fall season and to add interest throughout the entire look. They also have a more typical running short over the top to mimic the mesh overlay on the top by drawing cohesion throughout the look.

The legging and top are constructed from anti-microbial, wicking jersey which also has stretch to allow movement. Each are fitted for aerodynamic speed but also allow for comfort and style. RoadRUNner is meant for speed running and allows for quick activities. The mesh on the top and bottom are a white honeycomb mesh and provide texture, warmth and breathability.

RUNway

sportz runway

 

RUNway includes a vest similar to the coat of the previous but instead of the wonder mesh being toward the bottom of the jacket, the fishnet is incorporated into the yoke of this vest. Both have a similar drawstring ruffle and drawstring waist. Below the vest is a biker-style short with easy mobility and reflective striping. As well, there is a bra top with a fishnet insert.

The vest is constructed from a combination of ripstop and wonder mesh. The short and bra top are constructed from an antibacterial and wicking polyester jersey paired with classic black fishnet for breathability and air movement.

Sprung

sportz sprung

 

This look includes a cropped pullover, strappy bra top, and a legging/jogger blend. The pullover includes wonder mesh just as many items throughout the collection do. This mesh is key to the look because it allows the bra top to be shown. The pant is a mixture of both leggings and joggers, the variation in fit adds interest throughout the entire garment. The bra top is simple yet crucial. The criss-cross basket woven straps and bright color can be shown while under the
pullover.

The pant and pullover are primarily made of alpha soft wicking anti-microbial jersey. The pullover includes honeycomb mesh and the pant includes black fishnet. The bra top is a nylon spandex to allow for movement and support.
