The Evolution of the Tracksuit

Over the past 60 years, tracksuits have changed massively! adidas’ first ever line of apparel was in fact (you guessed it) a tracksuit – made in collab with football Legend, Franz Beckenbauer. Since then, it’s been retro’d and brought back to make an impact once more.

The ’70s saw new fabrics being used, taking comfort levels up, while the ‘80s were when they fully hit the mainstream. Made popular by hip hop icons, including the likes of Run DMC.

By the 2000s, tracksuits were ready to make a strong comeback. Tracksuits of today bring back iconic styles from the ‘60s and ‘70s, alongside the retro fabrics of the ‘80s. The biggest brands are constantly raising the game, setting new standards for the suits of the future.
