    I like it when people such as Pharrell and Rihanna collaberate with athletic wear brands to bring a new twist to athletic clothes and shoes.

    I think whoever is chosen to represent or work with a brand should be someone who is a good brand ambassador.

    From a business standpoint, I gather the athletic businesses also are reaching out to celebs who they hope will increase their market share.

        I have never heard of Bandier stores. Maybe you can go to the Flat Iron store and give us a report.

        I have a pair of Nike athletic shoes in a similar color. I think the style I own is much cuter.

        I found this article about Bandier to be interesting.

          Informative backstory interview.

          thanks – it’s informative. But I am totally NOT A FAN OF ATHLEISUREWEAR, I believe, gym clothes should be just this, and denim just that.

          Of course, you can, and even should, mix both whenever you feel like. But I never saw the upside of doing my push-ups or treadmill in stretchy constricting jeans, ’cause no matter how stretchy, they will still be constricting. Much ore comfortable in doing my gym in leggings or sweats.

          Brands and denim manufacturers are pushing athleisurewear because they need to show up with something new twice a year. That’s it. In reality, you are being forced to wear something you don’t actually like just because fashion demands it????

          Come on – create fashion, don’t copy it !!!!!

    With the athleisure trend still holding strong I can see why sports brands are connecting even more with those in the fashion industry.

    People from all walks of like wear athletic shoes.

    Meryl Davis should go ahead and purchase the brand(s) she admires the most.

    I do not mind that she voiced her opinion.

    I wonder if she is also concerned that the additional revenue that athletes got from working with the athletic wear industry is at stake.

    I imagine models were not thrilled when actors and athletes started appearing on magazine covers where models had usually been featured.

    Just reflecting on what brands of athletic shoes are seen on people who appear to be into fashion more than sports, I think brands like adidas and puma are seen more often than Nike.

    I guess Nike is trying to grab some of that biz.

    I see a lot of Denimology posts where those featured are wearing athletic shoes and attire with their denim.

    Would like to see the data as to whom is getting more customers for athletic brands today. Athletes? Musicians? Actors? Models?

    I think musicians have been asociated with athletic brands for decades.

    Do not know if the singers got any money from the sports brands back in the day…perhaps they got some free stuff…but I bet fans of the hip hop stars, rappers and rockers bought what their favorite singers were wearing.

    I love the comfort of the athleisure wear I own. I also like that a number of brands feature drop crotch styles which I still love.

    Athleisure wear is fun and I like the wide variety of styles.

    Liking it does not take away my fondness of denim.
