It’s that time again!!! I’m so so excited to announce that I have teamed up with Four Athletics once again to create brand new PaleOMG leggings. But this time it’s not just one pair of leggings…it’s SIX PAIRS!! It has always been a dream of mine to be able to create activewear and Four Athletics has made that dream a reality! So damn cool.
In case you missed it back in November, I came out with my first pair of PaleOMG x Four Athletics, Floral Print, High Waist, 7/8 Leggings and many of you amazing readers helped bring those legging to life by supporting the project and it became Four Athletics fastest campaign ever to reach 100% funded! I can’t thank you guys enough for supporting me on my new adventure and for supporting Four Athletics and their fantastic company! You all are freaking amazing!!
If you didn’t see those leggings or haven’t heard about Four Athletics yet, here’s a quick breakdown of how their amazing business is set up – Four Athletics was started by four brothers with a passion for fitness and activewear. They needed high quality fitness apparel that could withstand the toughest workouts, but the cost of what was available was out of control. When it comes to retail, the traditional model is costly, inefficient and in desperate need of innovation. Four Athletics set out to solve some of those problems. They use crowdfunding to match up supply and demand 100% of the time. They only make what is wanted, which eliminates waste, cuts out the middleman, and delivers a premium quality product at a fraction of the retail price. It’s more efficient, more responsible, and USA made!
And one of the best parts about Four Athletics is they care. Their customer service is a step above the rest and they are always listening to their customers. After my first campaign with Four Athletics, we took everyone’s feedback and Four Athletics spent countless hours sourcing fabrics, creating samples upon samples, and put these leggings through some of the toughest workouts to make sure they would last for every single athlete that put them on.
With these brand new leggings, all six pairs are thicker and a new fabric than the first pair I released. And I made sure that none of the leggings had a white base color inside to help reduce any sheer and maximize coverage. Here is the quick and dirty breakdown – when they print on a legging like the geometric and ombré, they are starting with a base color and printing onto it with another color, just like the floral PaleoMG legging. The solid color leggings are dyed which means the actual yarn or thread is dyed before even sewing the fabric together. If the fabric on the original leggings would have been the base or solid, there wouldn’t have been any white showing through. So now with these updated leggings, there is no white base color meaning no sheer! With these leggings, you’ll find 2 different materials:
- For the geometric print and ombré pocket leggings, you’ll find a medium weight, buttery soft, fabric. The fabric is the perfect blend of supportive and flexible, and Four Athletics used a heather grey base color for these designs to reduce any sheer when bending over or doing any movements in the gym. These leggings are high waisted and stay put no matter how you move. No constantly pulling these ones up through your workouts. Plus the ombré leggings come with pockets on both sides to store your phone or to just simply keep your hands warm at your cold gym!
- For the solid color mesh leggings, Four Athletics knew exactly what material to use! Their black and grey “omni” fabric is what started it all. Literally. It is the fabric they used to create their first pair of leggings, what they used to launch their Kickstarter campaign! It has become the most beloved fabric in their line. It has a great hand-feel and the four-way stretch material provides unlimited mobility, great compression and passes the squat test every time! It feels just a tad thinner than the geo and hombre leggings, but the coverage is amazing! I’m normally a little nervous in colored or grey leggings when they are a thinner material because I’m worried cellulite will show through, but I had absolutely no issue with these!
NOW LET’S DO THIS!! Enough about all the details…it’s time to show you the leggings! Let’s start with the greyscale geometric leggings. When I started thinking up new leggings, a friend at the gym had a geometric print on one day and looked fabulous in them, so I started from there! What I love about these leggings is the geometric print is small enough that it doesn’t stretch in funny ways around the hips and the butt. Plus because the print has so many shades of grey and black, no dimples or creases in the skin show through. You’ll feel comfortable and beautiful in these leggings, no matter how sweaty you get in your workout! And hopefully you saw my instagram story earlier in the week…no underwear or bum is showing through these leggings! I always wear a thong with any of my leggings and haven’t had any sort of issue with any of these! They are all squat-test approved!
Now it’s onto the Mesh Panel Pop leggings! We decided to print these leggings in three different colors – black, electric raspberry, and cool grey. I think having a black pair of leggings is a staple in any activewear drawer, but I love adding the mesh to these leggings for a little more flair! These leggings are high waisted, 7/8 length and like I said above, they are a tad thinner than the geo print and ombré leggings, but they still give great coverage and are not see through! Again, I did a highly embarrassing squat-butt-in-your-face instagram story. Out of all three, I think the cool grey is my favorite. The grey color goes with almost every color top or sports bra and I love the two different shades of grey colors together!
Last but definitely not least, the heather ombré pocket leggings! I’m obsessed with these! They are the same material as the geometric print leggings, but these ones come with pockets on both sides, which I think is a super flattering (and convenient!) look! Not only do I love the ombré look when it comes to my hair color and the balayage look I have going on, but I also love the pants trend I’ve been seeing everywhere. So I decided to take two of my favorite colors from this season and put them into leggings. First, we did an ombré forest color. Then an ombré desert rose color. And the color on the inside is a heather grey so no matter how deep you are squatting in your workout, nothing will show through!
Now let’s get your hands on some leggings! This campaign will run from February 15th-March 6th and then these leggings will be gone! Since Four Athletics runs their company through crowdfunding, you won’t get the leggings until the campaign is funded, so keep that in mind. They find out exactly how many orders are coming in THEN they print them and you’ll receive an email that they are coming your way! Remember, this reduces waste since they are printing as many that are ordered! Here are the links and prices for each legging!
- Forest Ombré – Get them for $69 (which would normally be $120 retain price!)
