SAYSKY was established in Copenhagen in 2013, with a mission to create high performance running wear with an urban and casual attitude.
We’re athletes at heart and in life. Our style is Scandinavian, metropolitan, minimalistic, and we have a penchant for urban colours. Our vision is to progress and elevate the apparel scene of running and to nurse the contemporary generation of athletes who are passionate and serious about their sport, yet with a laid-back mindset.
The team have generously offered 15% off running apparel simply by using the code TPPS15. CLICK HERE to shop at SAYSKY
