From our Customers

Nobody Else
is in Sight

It’s been 70 years since Diane Leather became the first woman to conquer a sub-5 minute mile, a triumph that led to decades of inspired progress in women’s distance running. In honor of the athlete’s groundbreaking finish, we’ve created a version of our Van Cortlandt Grand Shorts with a subtle stag graphic as a nod to the gear that Leather often sported while running.

2:09 Mesh: 82% Polyester, 18% Spandex Tricot Mesh with Antimicrobial Finish

Wash Cold
Do Not Bleach
Tumble Dry Low

Classic Performance

These shorts are designed with a relaxed 4” inseam silhouette and a channeled drawstring waistband. Unlike the original Van Cortlandt Shorts, these tout a straight hem and a roomier rise to offer an easier fit with more coverage.

Liner Notes

The shorts feature a lightweight liner in the same antimicrobial mesh as the body. Two pockets for keys, credit cards, or gels sit at the back interior of the waistband.

A Mesh with Merit

The 2:09 Mesh came to be, not only for its soft and airy texture, but also for its antimicrobial properties. With the funk-free finish, the shorts are built to battle bacteria.

Leather's Legacy

In the 1950s, Diane Leather burst onto the athletics scene and quickly became one of England's best middle-distance runners just months after taking up the sport. While at the time, women’s running had limited visibility and opportunities, she pushed boundaries with her speed, turning heads as she conquered records and disproved criticism of the growing female representation. Diane raced to many remarkable victories, including the feat that we honor seven decades later; a 4:59.6 finish in the mile, making her the first woman to break the 5 minute barrier.
