Since 1983 we have been focused on you, the City Athlete, and helping you up your game with the right gear. Because we’re athletes too, we understand what you’re looking for – comfortable fit, durable fabrics that perform as hard as you do, and details like pockets in the right places and reflectivity for visibility. So, we designed all that and more into our own CS by City Sports line. To get the inside scoop, we sat down with the Head of Development and Product of the CS by City Sports line, Nichole Ash.
What is your role at City Sports?
I am the Head of Development and Production for the “CS” by City Sports apparel line.
What is your favorite form of exercise?
If I had to pick one, Pilates would be the winner. It guarantees a sweat every time and my body reacts well to resistance training. I also really enjoy running because I can do it anytime, anywhere and at any level depending on how I am feeling.
As an athlete, which features or benefits are most important to you?
Comfort. Whether I am going out for a run or taking a gym class it’s imperative that my clothes don’t get in the way. Each of our garments has an enhanced fit to make sure it works with and supports the body during each workout. We also paid extra attention to the details on each garment by using flat lock stitching to reduce chaffing and added lengths to our tops so they could be versatile for multiple activities.
What do you like most about “CS” by City Sports apparel?
I love the fun, vibrant colors! The color palate is really fresh and will look great in the spring and summer months. We want our customers to not only feel great, but look great too!
Which “CS” by City Sports product is your favorite and why?
The Paramount Capri is my favorite piece because of its features and versatility. The fabric is made with a supplex/poly/lycra mix which allows for comfortable and free movement. There are tons of other features too, like the mesh insert for breathability, reflective piping for visibility and even a zippered back pocket for workout essentials! Give it a shot and it may just be your favorite too.
What influenced the new direction of the line?
Our customers are truly what influenced and inspired us to take this line to the next level. Like all athletes, they want technical pieces for multiple activities to maximize usage. That being said, we wanted to make a line for our athletes that will make them look good, feel good and enjoy the results!
