Runique Leggings - A Bolt Out of the Blue


Runique A Bolt Out of the Blue leggings

The inspiration for Runique came like a bolt out of the blue. Runique's founder Lindsey was new to running and became frustrated with all the boring black running leggings available.  

What she wanted was something funky but functional, something that simply worked, and looked great at the same time. 

As an avid seamstress, she knew she could do better. And as a runner, she knew what runners want. Not just great looking patterns, but they have to fit well with lycra to give great two way stretch. They have to have a zip pocket, and of course a drawstring waistband was non negotiable. And so Runique was born - this lightning strike pattern was the first design she came up with, and as so often happens, her friends asked where she got them and things snowballed from there. A few months later, Runique has a range of 7 styles but it all started with the Bolt from the Blue.
