Hannah Teter x Bombas



Just in time for the holidays comes this capsule collection of slope shreddin’ socks from Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter and Bombas. A gold medalist in the Half-Pipe at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games and silver medalist at the 2010 Games, Teter has partnered with Bombas to create a snowboard sock that meets the technical demands of one of the sport’s best riders along with a design as flashy as her style.

The Hannah Teter x Bombas socks provide more than just good looks and performance. Bombas was founded by Randy Goldberg and Dave Heath, who discovered that socks were the #1 most requested item at homeless shelters. They decided to create a sock that gives back. For every pair purchased, one pair is donated to the homeless, and they are specifically designed to handle an abundance of wear and tear. Bombas has donated over 1.5 million pairs so far with many more to be given away this holiday season!

Teter was honored to partner with Bombas on such a worthy venture and the Hannah Teter x Bombas socks are designed to meet her exacting requirements of extreme comfort, bold style, and gold-medal winning performance. They are made with high-grade merino wool that’s soft, warm, and naturally moisture wicking, with a full cushioned leg for all day comfort and airflow venting to prevent overheating. The Y shaped heel stitch creates a natural cup around the heel, and left-right contouring is ergonomically designed to mold to the foot.

Once the day is done and it’s time to kick off those boots, there’s the Aztec inspired design with the signature Bombas bee to add some playful style to any cozy apres-snow fun. So feel good this holiday season on and off the slopes with a snowboard sock that keeps giving good vibes long after the day is done.


Old Workout Clothes Wanted!



Of all the things you can sell on eBay, used workout clothes are not something for which you would imagine there would be market.  As it turns out however, there is for both buyer and seller, and 26-year old Jill Moskowitz, aka “fitbuyer212“, has figured out a way to make a six figure income doing just that. She’ll give you cash on the spot for your old leggings and sportbras too!

2 years ago, tired of her dog walking job in New York City, Jill started looking for alternative ways to make money. A California native who had gone to college in the city, she had always sold stuff on eBay. She stared listing her old Lululemon pieces and found there was a market. Clearly resourceful, she figured other people were probably just donating or throwing away their old workout wear, and she could make it business out of it.

Jill began by putting flyers up offering money for used workout wear, and printed business cards which she handed out outside of fitness studios. It was a struggle at first to find sellers but once word of mouth spread that there was this girl who would give you cash on the spot for your old stuff, her business started to boom. Earning over $100,000 in her first year and on track to double it this year, she has clearly found a market. Read More

Milly On The Marathon


”From afar, I had this crew pegged as Italian. Italian men are confident enough to wear pink, and they do quite well.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover these dudes are French. Move over Italians, French men wear pink and look TRES BEAU doing so! The French are fiercely committed to neck scarves, even on the running track. And they’re CHIC AF, non?”




Happy NYC Marathon Sunday! Today more than 50,000 runners will take over the streets of Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx to cover the 5 boroughs and 26.2 miles that make up the New York City Marathon. What makes this one of the greatest sporting events in the world are not the pros — we know they can do it — but the thousands of regular folks like you and I, who decide this is the year they are going to run this unfathomable distance, and put in every ounce of their heart and soul into crossing that finish line.

One of the best pre-Marathon sights are the visiting runners on the roads and trails of Central Park. You can spot them from a mile away. Something about their bright colors and uniform style gives them away… or perhaps it’s the name of their homeland proudly displayed on their running jerseys.

So on a gorgeous fall morning, Style of Sport’s good buddy Michelle Smith, Designer and Founder of Milly, and I went for a stroll around the Central Park Reservoir to check out the running attire for this year’s race. Michelle is known for her popping colors, playful silhouettes, graphic tees – and an inimitable way of expressing her opinion. You’ll have to Google “AF” if you’re not familiar with that term.

Here is her fashion take on the runners of the NYC Marathon, as only she can give you!

Slim Aarons: The Sporting Life

Now on chic coffee tables everywhere is Slim Aarons:Women, the newest monograph of Slim Aarons photographs. As chronicler of the lives of the rich and aristocratic in the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s, Slim Aarons was unrivaled. His photographs are the embodiment of “the good life”, which of course includes the sporting life. Skiing in Austria, waterskiing in Antibes, surfing in Newport, canoeing in Lake Tahoe, and snorkeling in Bermuda are a few of the “leisure” activities, as Aarons refered to them, featured in the book.

Aarons served as a photographer in World War II, and when it was over turned his camera in the opposite direction. According to the author of Slim Aarons:Women, Laura Hawk, who was Aaron’s assistant for over a decade, it was “people seeking pleasure” that inspired him, and he absolutely loved shooting sports. What became his niche of photographing the super wealthy was by accident, but it was there that he found the splendor in these activities and he was always looking for a new sporting angle. Hawk described one of their many trips to St. Moritz, when Aarons had heard about a new sport called “ski joering” at the famed Palace Hotel, where skiers were being across the ice pulled by a horse. He couldn’t wait to photograph it. Recalls Hawk, “Slim ran out into the middle of the track to get it head on. He was like a child about it. He loved the adrenaline rush!”
