“Think Easy, Light, Smooth, and Fast. You start with easy, because if that’s all you get, that’s not so bad. Then work on light. Make it effortless, like you don’t give a shit how high the hill is or how far you’ve got to go. When you’ve practiced that so long that you forget you’re practicing, you work on making it smooooooth. You won’t have to worry about the last one – you get those three, and you’ll be fast.”
- Caballo Blanco from Christopher McDougall’s book “Born To Run”
Ethics & Athletics - Tread Light.
To Tread Light is to move easily and effortlessly, but it isn’t just a mantra for running.
Treading light is also about relaxing our minds by living effortlessly. We aim to provide clothing to make your lifestyle more effortless.
Treading Light doesn't just refer to the physical foot but also our carbon foot. We firmly believe that living a vegan lifestyle is an important choice to minimise your carbon footprint and therefor to tread lighter on the Earth - whilst maximising your athletic potential. You do not have to be vegan to wear our clothing, but we would encourage you to investigate it. In the meantime you can aim to Tread Light in whichever way makes sense to you.
An Ethical Athlete is an Ethlete.
To us all Ethletes are champions because they are championing whichever ethical stance they choose: be it for the planet, for the animals, anti-doping etc.
If you are an Ethlete then you are making choices ahead of your time, you are athletes of the future and we salute you!
We hope to see you in the streets or on the trails.
