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 our signature running singlet with a graphic inspired by the same three words Leather often sported while running: “Fleet and Free”.

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

Breaking Barriers

The singlet honors Diane Leather, the first woman to race a sub-5 minute mile, featuring three words she often sported while running: “Fleet and Free”.

Race Ready Performance

The lightweight, moisture-wicking and breathable mesh of the running singlet is finished with an antimicrobial treatment to prevent odors.

Go for Gold

Gold pins come attached to our classic woven label at the right hem, ready for your bib come race day as you push toward your fastest feats.

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.

Matter of Mesh

When crafting the Van Cortlandt Collection, we took note of the classic features that have influenced race day gear over the years. In doing so, we discovered that one aspect proved to be tried and true; a mesh material that runners have donned for decades. So we scoured the earth to find the very finest performance mesh for our signature racing kit, leading us to discover our 2:09 Mesh, an astonishingly lightweight and antimicrobial blend with a luxurious feel.
