You might not know these pieces of running apparel by their brand name, but you’ve seen them around, believe us. They don’t exactly… blend in. They’re those crazy Galaxy Split Shorts that are so hot right now. They’re that insane Shark Singlet that your teammate wore to track practice the other day. Saint Paddy’s Day Split Shorts? Running has never been so festive. Meet BOA, the running apparel company that isn’t afraid to stand out, and for good reason.
Foundation in running
BOA was founded in 1992 by Dave and Pamela Fleming in Brea, California. Dave Fleming, President of BOA, was a 1,500 meter runner in college and continued to run professionally post-collegiately. Along with his running experience and knowledge of the sport and Pamela’s design and creative talent and brought them together, launching a new brand of apparel designed specifically for runners.
Made in America
Feel even more spirited wearing those American Flat Split Shorts for your Fourth of July run (or any time of year with pride) knowing that they were indeed made here in the USA. Not a fact that many companies can boast, BOA is proud to be able to say that all of their running apparel is “Made in America”, right here in California, in fact.
BOA has become known for their original, unique, eye-catching prints, and they have taken the market by storm. The distinctive print designs have proven to be BOA’s signature style, and each print is created at their headquarters with their own creative staff.
Success at Running Warehouse
Their men’s split short silhouette is our #1 best seller here at Running Warehouse. Not only that, BOA has been in partnership with us since we first started out 10 years ago. It has been fun to see the growth of both of our companies in the past decade.
