Building on the hype that was 2021, the Boston-based sneaker staple introduces Los Angeles-based inner peace collective, District Vision, for the first time with a collection of technical apparel and footwear, releasing alongside a series of micro-courses that aim to provide fans with tools designed to increase mental health awareness through running.

“We believe in a holistic approach to athleticism and the idea that, in addition to function-first and performance-enhancing products, mental wellbeing is at the core of physical exercise, especially running,” said District Vision co-founder Tom Daly.

“We are thrilled about the opportunity to work with a heritage running brand on a collaboration that goes beyond just product. It is our hope that consumers will gain a deeper understanding of what it truly means to be a ‘mindful athlete’ and learn how running can be used as one tool in their mental wellbeing journey,” said co-founder Max Vallot.

Renowned artist, Filip Pagowski, takes on the task of design, crafting a range of pieces encompassing organic hand-drawn elements with a focus on mindful aesthetics to make up a functional and artistic uniform. Two colourways of the FuelCell RC Elite v2 will drop at release in white and black, alongside apparel pieces including; Impact Run Light Pack Jacket, Impact Run Long Sleeve Tee, Q Speed Sherpa Anorak, Impact Run Singlet, 3″ Impact Run Short, Q Speed 9″ Inch Half Tight, and 3″ Impact Run Split Short.
