Anything from running to hanging out to livin’ the good life

I’m not going to wax poetic in the manner of Tracksmith about the changing of the seasons, but every year, spring does instinctively return like the salmon of Capistrano, and with it comes new colorways of Tracksmith running apparel. We’ll sometimes see some new items, but mostly new colorways. Which is fine, because what do we need that the forest cannot provide? We have food, wood for weapons, and we’ll find safety and solace in our trees. And in running.

So check out our favorite gear and colorways from Tracksmith for Spring 2023, and enjoy the scent of brambleberries in the thickets of whatever New England dirt road you imagine yourself running down.

Tracksmith Running Gear We Love Right Now

Tracksmith Boston Singlet


Why You Should Buy

We know some of you will be heading up to toe the line in Hopkinton on a Monday morning in mid-April, and you know you better look good on the big stage. We’re not sure you could look any better than the iconic look of the 2023 Tracksmith Van Cortlandt singlet.

Breathable, moisture-wicking, and featuring the classic sash over top the Boston colorway palette, it exudes the history of the most iconic race in running.

Tracksmith Van Cortlandt Shorts


Why You Should Buy

By now a legend in the Tracksmith family, this 4” short made from a lightweight and antimicrobial fabric is a three-season staple. In true Tracksmith fashion, the cut of the shorts strikes a proper middle ground in the “short short” category. It feels like a short short, thanks to the cut, but covers like a longer short thanks to the length.

We still wear pairs of these shorts that are six years old at this point. Good news is that it comes in some new colorways (like the yellow and black below), so you can freshen up that look.

Trackhouse Midweight Crew


Why You Should Buy

No joke, I wore this sweatshirt four out of the last seven days. It is probably the most comfortable sweatshirt I’ve ever owned. The interior touch of French terry feels like love, in sweatshirt form. Also, the midweight version is the right choice if you’re committing to the comfort of a Tracksmith sweatshirt. It’s perfect for all seasons, and especially great right now. Tracksmith says it’s for running. It’s not. But it’s perfect for every other thing in life.

Tracksmith Van Cortlandt Grand Shorts


The Van Cortlandt Grand adds a slightly more modest look to race day with a longer seam on the outside, but still comes correct with a just-right length of 4” for the inseam. Made from Tracksmith’s signature 2:09 mesh, the VC Grand is silky smooth on the skin and features an antimicrobial finish so you can run consecutive days without washing (trust me, I know).

Tracksmith Session Tee & Tank

$78 (Session Tee)

$72 (Session Tank)

The Session Tee for men and Session Tank for women is essentially Tracksmith’s take on the classic running tee. Cut in a more relaxed fit and featuring a soft stretch knit, the shirt is ready for whatever you throw at it. Now available in new colorways, including muted clay and navy.

Tracksmith Allston Half Tights/Shorts

$98 (Half Tights)

$78 (Shorts)

Why You Should Buy

For those who like a sleeker look, look no further than the Allston Half Tight for men and Shorts for women. Available with our choice of a liner or no liner, the Allston features an Italian blend of nylon and elastane with a dense knit. Bonded seams prevent chafing while a signature sash on the leg lets everyone know you’re dripping in Tracksmith. A great race day option because the men’s version has three pockets– two drop-in and one back, for all your fueling needs. The women’s version features a phone pocket and a gel/key pocket.

Tracksmith Session Speed Shorts


Why You Should Buy

Meant for faster efforts, the 3” Session Speed short is Meg’s go-to choice for race day. It features Veloce– a lightweight and stretchy material accompanied by an exposed elastic waistband that fits just right around the waist. As far as carrying capacity, a secured zippered hip pocket and internal liner pocket allow you options for your valuables and/or fuel.

Why You Should Buy

Tracksmith’s first foray into footwear now comes in a navy blue colorway. To be honest, with summer coming before you know it, we’d opt with white. It’s classic and classy and will look good with just about anything while the sun is shining and the seas are shimmering. Oh yeah, this is technically a running shoe, and you can read our review, but let’s be real– this looks great as a casual shoe and you’ll probably wear it more off the run than you do on it.

Tracksmith Speed Crew Sock


Why You Should Buy

I hesitated to put a damn sock on here, but these socks actually are really great. And they come in like six different colors, though I still think a classic white is the best. The fabric is both lightweight and compressive and the fitted 5” tube is just the right size and doesn’t fall down on the run.
