Out of the Archives

Tracksmith launched in the summer of 2014 with a collection of five core pieces for training and race day. Fives years later and the occasion of our anniversary has us feeling a bit nostalgic. In celebration, we’re revisiting the inspiration behind those first pieces and re-introducing a few old favorites.

Half a decade ago we drove to Draper Knitting in Canton, MA with a car full of tees, determined to develop the perfect cotton blend that would wear in, not out. The Anniversary Five Pack features a selection of our favorite graphics in new colors, sold together in a limited-edition Grayboy bundle.

On an early factory visit we spotted some colorful leftover shirting. Inspired, we created a hundred or so “Factory Floor Spike Bags” to include in our debut collection. We’ve gone back to those basics with a limited run of 150 individually unique bags.

The source of inspiration for our first singlet was the high school track uniform worn by our founder’s father-in-law. White with a red sash, it inspired the Van Cortlandt's signature statement.

Images of Wilma Rudolph breaking the tape in classic running shorts provided the starting point for our signature not-too-short not-too-long mesh shorts.

A misguided attempt to run the Penn Relays steeplechase in mesh shorts inspired the decision to craft long shorts that could handle hard running.
