If you’re not investing in your athleisure… what are you even doing? Ratty sweats and baggy tees need not be part of your life anymore. Over the past few years, we’ve found no shortage of performance gear that can flip from couch surfing to mile crushing at a moment’s notice, and it’s been a game-changer.

One such purveyor is Legends. A newcomer to the fitness-inspired game, Legends brands itself as “pro-athlete developed, tested and approved performance wear” and offers a host of options and apparel, all rooted in luxurious comfort and technical prowess. Running the gamut of athletic apparel, the LA-based outfitters utilize performance tech and next-level materials for some serious gear that’s as ready for the home office as it is for the gym.

Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite styles from Legends; some are more gym-inclined, while others skew casual.

Legends Luka Shorts

If we had to pick a favorite Legends offering, we’d be remiss not to opt for the best-selling Luka Shorts. Ultra-customizable — the Luka Shorts come in three lengths, lined or unlined, and in a bevy of spot-on colors — these performance bottoms are a joy to run, jump and otherwise cardio it up in thanks to the laser-cut ventilation and sweat-wicking, antimicrobial tech material. The built-in phone pocket and split-curve hem are just icing on the cake, and also make these a viable all-day options as temps start to spike.

On the streetwear-leaning side, the Carson Bomber stylish cut makes a perfect lightweight spring layer. Its water-repellant body is a must for unpredictable weather, and Legends’ attention to detail shines through in the reflective trims, high-end zippers and sporty comfort ribbing.

Legends Fairfax Hoodie

Things we like about the Fairfax hoodie: everything. Legend’s heaviest knit, the Fairfax 100% heavyweight cotton ensures the perfect drape for some coffee-time comfort or bona fide sweat sesh in the gym alike. The roomy fit is exactly how we want our hoodies to fit today, and the Los Angeles-made layer is finished with on-trend (see: logo patch, dipped cotton drawcords, and an oversized hood) details that make it worth every penny.

Legends Fairfax Sweatpant

The Fairfax Sweatpant is designed to the same American-made, heavy cotton tune as the matching hoodie. Cuffed perfectly, they play extra nicely with a fresh pair of “flex on ’em” kicks.

Legends Enzo Tee

The Enzo Tee manages the seemingly impossible — it packs a ton of performance into a single, deftly-crafted and totally wearable shirt. It checks all the necessary boxes to crush even your hardest workouts — 4-way stretch, antimicrobial properties, elite breathability and sweat-wicking — while maintaining a definite sense of cool thanks to the scalloped-bottom fit and athletic cut.
