Lycra-phile

I know that a fair few followers of mine love gorgeous sports wear as much as I do. Gone are the days of hiding after dark in all black lycra, baggy cotton t-shirts and ill-fitting puffy running shorts. Sportswear is important to women and at the moment, the louder the better. Zalando UK asked me to take a look at their sportswear and see if it what they had to offer would be of interest to me and my readers.

After taking a quick browse through their site I was impressed by the variety of fitness brands they had an offer and how much awesome kit they had in one place. Popular brands like Nike and Adidas sit alongside premium brands, like Gore and Craft, and some lesser known (in the UK at least!) brands such as Röhnisch and Casall. I liked this mix and thought it was a cool place to find something a bit ‘different’, and not just buy the same patterned tights that everyone else has because they’re available on Oxford Street.

Zalando kindly offered me a gift card, which I put towards these sexy new adidas leggings.

It was a tough call though – here are some other bits that caught my eye…

Röhnisch bra

Yummy Nike Sphere Performance top

I am digging the neck on this Newline jacket

Love the colour and cool mesh panels on these Asics tights

Zalando also do lots of clothes that aren’t PE kit, in case you actually have a life and don’t live in lycra. Definitely recommended for cool sports kit though, and great for finding something a little bit different. Shipping is also free – yippee!
