Made for the Mess
We firmly believe that the best running weather is that which calls for a long sleeve and shorts. In between late winter and early spring, shorts days become more frequent, especially when it’s time to go fast. But melting snow, muddy roads and variable conditions require something more durable. Drawing inspiration from the snug comfort and protection of a “shorty” wetsuit, our Thaw Half Tights let you push the pace in tough conditions while shielding against muddy backsplash.
In Vermont, they say there are five seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter and mud – when thawing snowmelt turns dirt roads and trails into a soggy mess. While it may not have achieved “season status” everywhere, that wet, mushy period between deep winter and early spring is a fact of life for many runners. We spend it leaping over slush puddles in old trainers that we don’t mind getting dirty. It’s the physical in-between. It’s the thaw. Inspired by this gloriously messy season, we updated our training staples to handle some serious splashes.
