Top 100 Sports Ideas in October

From Fashionable Athlete Apparel to Inspiring Sports Campaigns

— October 27, 2014 — Lifestyle
These October 2014 sports ideas range from fashionable athlete apparel to inspiring sports campaigns that encourage one to follow their dreams.

While high-profile athletes are becoming spokespeople for top tier brands that are not directly related to sport, athletic gear manufacturers are focusing on performance and style when it comes to their latest designs.

On the athletic gear front, aesthetics and function come together to create the best of both worlds. Sportswear is becoming more fashion forward and has been made more popular by athletes who are unafraid to express themselves.

In addition to endorsement deals and fashionable performance wear, these October 2014 sports ideas also include inspiring athlete commercials that illustrate the perseverance and strong will of these individuals.
