WHERE EVERYTHING (RE)BEGINS
In the 1970s and 1980s, the international journal Spiridon campaigned to democratize running (and in particular to include women in it). Hundreds of thousands of people, in Europe and the United States, ran with Spiridon T-shirts to show their support for this movement, worn by an incredible group of runners-poets-activists.
Their slogan: " All run with us!"
Their philosophy: freedom, solidarity, pleasure, sharing, inclusion .
Thanks to the many archival documents made available to us by these pioneers of free running, we are proud to celebrate their history through our clothing. A story of men, women and passion that was at the origin of a true sporting and cultural revolution.

On the heart, the “Road Runner” bird, designed in 1973 by Karel Matejovsky in a nod to Fred Lebow's New York Road Runners Club. Nicknamed in a nod to its top speed on land of 40 km/hour, this bird (Géocoucou of its real name) is one of the emblems of the Spiridonians.
On the right shoulder, a broken line, like leaving the track, to symbolize the Spiridon philosophy.
Available in Women's and Men's models.
Circuit court et production éthique
Minimiser notre impact environnemental est notre priorité. Tous les vêtements Spiridon sont produits raisonablement et localement dans les meilleurs ateliers d'Europe (France, Italie, Portugal) à partir de matières recyclées, recyclables ou naturelles (pulple de bois, laine mérinos...). Pour sa dernière collection sportswear, Spiridon est allé encore plus loin dans la réduction de son empreinte écologique en utilisant des teintures minérales.
