of the Season
Running tights are a year-round staple, but a few material differences can change their utility. The Italian-made fabric we found for our Allston Tights delivers a light and supportive bottom that’s ideal for harder sessions when you want coverage but don’t want to overheat. With comfortable and utilitarian details like an exposed racing stripe elastic waistband and zippered hip pocket, the Allston is a workhorse tight for shoulder seasons.
We set out to find the perfect fabric for fast, high intensity runs. We found it in an Italian-made blend of nylon and elastane that balances compression and stretch with breathability and speedy drying times. It’s cool to the touch with a silky handfeel while still providing full coverage and support. To keep the tights feeling lightweight and fast, we used bonded seams throughout. The tights are finished with a soft exposed elastic waistband and feature a bonded sash detail on the front right thigh and back left calf.
Pockets round out the Allston’s utility. A hidden zip pocket at the back right hip securely stores a card, fuel or phone. The back cuffs feature a zipper for easy dressing while wearing sneakers or spikes.
All Hail Allston
Among certain circles in Boston, Allston is called the “Flagstaff of the East” for the high number of elites and semi-elites who call the blue collar neighborhood home. We named our fast and versatile tights in honor of the community of fast men and women who live, train and work in the enclave.
