75 Examples of High-Performance Sportswear

From Panty-Free Yoga Pants to Ground-Sensitive Shoes

— May 13, 2015 — Fashion
A return to high-performance sportswear is in the near future. Although many retailers have introduced their own athletic chic lines in response to the fashion fad that has been sticking around in the industry for some time now, it's clear that the quality of such apparel isn't on par with more traditional sports brands. Yet this collection of high-performance sportswear shows that a compromise between the two is becoming a goal for many companies.

From stylish compression socks to unique footwear and more, high-performance sportswear is evolving for the everyday consumer, not just the elite athlete. Whether that means playing with different materials, silhouettes or construction, designers are finding ways to improve such products in significant ways.
