Louis | Men's Shorts

Louis* is the first Spiridon technical shorts  It is part of our new Anthology collection which weaves the link between the history of Spiridon and our vision of technical outdoor creation.

100% Made in Europe (from the origin of the yarn to the making, including the knitting).

Designed in part with there ecological italian fiber Q-Nova ® (recycled polyamide), the Louis shorts stand out for their material durable and its vintage look.

To achieve it, we developed a specific technical material in Spain (Barcelona), which explains its 12 months of development. It is resistant , breathable , top premium quality and optimizes moisture transfer . It is also distinguished by its style with its "piqué-checkered" knitting . This super pleasant, supple and light material has a dry but "pounced" touch which almost gives it a rare and innovative "cottony" appearance. The result: a unique, ecological and stylish Spiridon silhouette!

Louis goes perfectly with the Summit tank top, the Anthology t-shirt and the Salvan long sleeve .

Collection identity

On the left thigh, the “Road Runner” bird , designed in 1973 by Karel Matejovsky as a nod to Fred Lebow's New York Road Runners Club. At the top, a broken line , like an exit from the track to broaden horizons beyond the racing corridors and the sole objective of performance. A step aside, in the spirit of Spiridon, to reclaim nature and enjoy the unique feeling of freedom that running provides.
