The best new activewear to kickstart 2021

Shopping is exercise, right? Here’s some of the best new activewear for 2021 – all available on the Active Card.

There’s no better time to start a new exercise regime than a new year – you’re feeling refreshed, motivated and ready to fly. At least until February… And of course any new exercise goal requires some fresh activewear. So here are some of the best new pieces to help you kickstart 2021 and make it your healthiest year yet. All available with the Active Card


Leggings built for speed



Inspired by the night sky, these sleek Nike Speed Flash leggings are here to help you run better. Their all-over, reflective constellation print is designed as a calming aesthetic to help you stay mindful and introspective as you tear up the pavement, field or court. 


Socially conscious kicks




Created in collaboration with musician and designer Pharell Williams, Adidas’s new HU NMD sneakers in vibrant green and black bring you a bold hit of colour and boost cushioning for extra comfort. A rework of the iconic NMD silhouette, they feature the Vietnamese word ‘Nhân Loại’, which means humanity.


Sporty tee built for comfort 



Part of the latest line from Jordan, this Essential Boxy Tee is all about comfort, whether you’re on the court, lifting weights or binge-watching Netflix’s Cheer for the third time. Featuring a crew neck, short sleeves and slouchy fit, this is a real crowd-pleaser. 


Form and function 



If watersports are your thing, make like a frog in these Barney Cools Amphibious Shorts from Surf Dive ‘n Ski. Made with a special quick-dry fabric, these comfy swim shorts take you seamlessly from water to walking.


Sport meets vintage glam



Add a quirky circus vibe to your activewear wardrobe with this retro-glam crew neck jumper from Puma. Inspired by ‘superwomen of the circus’, it was created in collaboration with London brand Charlotte Olympia, known for channelling old-school Hollywood glamour. 


Packed with convenience



Keep it all together in 2021 with Quicksilver’s generously sized 1969 Special 28L Large Backpack, perfect for hikes, sports gear and camping trips. Stylish in navy and neutrals, it’s made with 100% recycled polyester fabric produced from plastic bottles. 


Clean and classic 



Your search for the perfect white sneaker ends here. These crisp white Lacoste Larond sneakers from Hype DC are the ideal summer shoe, drawing on tennis heritage and French luxury, and elevated by premium leather and a gold metal crocodile. 


The hoodie with built-in flexibility 



Find new freedom with the Nike Flex Jacket, made with sweat-wicking Dri-FIT Technology that stretches with your body, to help you get the most out of your workout. It also features handy pockets for your phone and gym gear.
