At Pavement Bound we do a fair amount of touring the world running. This year we travelled to Denmark for the Copenhagen Half Marathon. Pre race, as is custom, we ran to the expo to pick up race numbers and essentially do some shopping! One of the stands caught our eye. It was simple, cardboard walls with product pinned up. No slogans, no plastic cut outs of athletes in their wears. Just a desk with a guy on a Mac Air. The product did the talking and soon, as a style conscious bunch, we were rummaging through jackets, vests, t’s and tights checking out Saysky Copenhagen a newly launched lifestyle concept making running and triathlon gear with a competitive but laidback feel. All we could see was cool monochrome, 3M and stars everywhere. Sold.
We soon got chatting to their guy Nicklas who told us a bit about their story from roots in surfing and that casual ‘aloha’ spirit which they’d combined with a love for sport and competition. Throw in a bit of Scandi minimalist design and before you can say cinnamon roll you got yourself an awesome brand. Their name comes from crossing the finish line, looking up at the sky and saying yes rather than no. It embodies positivity and is refreshingly simple both in design but also in ethos.
The product? They absolutely nail that crossover between function and fashion. Star printed or block colour camos, blacks and greys. All your running wardrobe catered for with shorts, tights, singlets, t’s, jackets, snoods, gloves, hats, you name it. And this is just the running range. They also cater for triathlon, and swimming. These guys don’t just think performance, they’ve expanded the range to lifestyle and core training so whether you are on a 10 mile run or a 10 mile commute to work they’ll have you clad in cool. We particularly like the year round ‘Siberia’ running tights and matching scarf. We haven’t found a better fitting, better looking combo with imprinted star pattern on grey with Saysky motif. We also got the ‘Danish’ singlet. Cos, you know ,if you’re gonna run a race in Denmark there’s nothing better than a bit of home crowd cheering you on! And it looks great, naturally.
Check em out here saysky.dk. At the moment they only retail online or in boutiques in Denmark. The good news though is FREE SHIPPING for Christmas! Tak!
