About a month and a half ago, I was training on the local track near my home, and as I started my warm-up, I noticed someone with seemingly superhuman speed running on the other side. It was Allyson Felix, who was training for the Olympics; she would be leaving for Tokyo about three weeks after I saw her. For anyone who thinks they could go up against an Olympian, let me explain. This woman is the most beautiful runner I have ever seen in my life, with such power and agility that she seems from another world.
I immediately noticed her Athleta outfit (and found myself excited that we were wearing the same sports bra) and her shoes were light and looked super high-tech. Well, they were. Felix created her own brand of sneakers, Saysh, and these are the shoes with which she sprinted to victory and history at the 2021 Olympics. The shoes are light, cool and, for the first time, available in the world. purchase from Athleta, Felix’s clothing sponsor. There are three colors available and the lines along the shoes are reminiscent of a runway. If you’re ready to step up your sneaker game, there’s no better way to do it.
