Athleta Expands Partnership with Allyson Felix
Athleta and Olympic runner Allyson Felix are introducing a new 10-piece collection of jackets, tops, and tights designed to help athletes train in cold weather. The collection builds on the retailer's existing partnership with Felix that dates back to 2019 and includes multiple apparel collections as well as the Saysh brand of running shoe.
Felix’s newest collection marks the latest in an ongoing partnership between the Olympian and Athleta. Felix signed on as the brand’s first athlete partner after leaving Nike due to frustration with policies for pregnant women and mothers. That same year, Athleta and Felix partnered to launch The Power of She Fund: Child Care Grants, a first-of-its-kind grant program that committed $200,000 to help fund childcare costs for professional mom-athletes traveling to competitions, including six who participated in the Tokyo Olympics.
