About a month and a half ago, I was working out at the local track by my house, and as I began my warmup, I noticed someone with seemingly superhuman speed running on the other straightaway. It was Allyson Felix, training for the Olympics; she would leave for Tokyo about three weeks after I saw her. For anyone who thinks they could go toe to toe with an Olympian, let me break it down for you. This woman is the most beautiful runner I've ever seen in my life, with such power and agility that it feels otherworldly.
I noticed her Athleta outfit immediately (and found myself excited that we wear the same sports bra) and her shoes were light and looked super high-tech. Well, they were. Felix created her own sneaker brand, Saysh, and those were the shoes she sprinted to victory, and history, in at the 2021 Olympics. The shoes are lightweight, cool, and, for the first time ever, available to purchase at Athleta, Felix's apparel sponsor. There are three available colours, and the lines along the shoes are reminiscent of a track. If you're ready to step up your sneaker game, there's no better way to do it.
