Tyler Haney is Making Us Love Activewear
"Workout clothes don't have to look like a superhero costume," says Tyler Haney, whose chic, category-shaking designs are just the opposite: buttery hoodies, exercise bras that don't dig or pinch, and muted shades like blush, taupe, and indigo that you actually want to wear. A Colorado native, Haney grew up playing basketball and soccer and running hurdles. When she stopped competing in college, she couldn't find simple, understated training clothes, so she spent a year researching fabrics that were "super-comfortable, worked well with sweat, and would last" before launching Outdoor Voices.
Today, Haney's personal style is as natural as ever, right down to the T-shirts, A-line skirts, and clear lip gloss that she wears to work. And while she's no longer out to shatter sports records, she still has a bold goal for her company: "We want to redefine recreation."
