I know Lululemon is popular, but I never quite understood why in the face of such gorgeous athletic wear from companies like MICHI. MICHI NY specializes in edgy athleticwear with cut-outs, mesh, sheer versus opaque, and other more interesting designs. Currently, MICHI is offering up to 70% off athletic wear and swimwear in their seasonal sale.
All prices are in USD but their offices are located in Toronto. Using the upper right hand drop box you can change currencies, but the CAN prices will fluctuate with the currency exchange: thus, I am using the USD prices.
I was looking for stylish yet affordable athletic wear options. This Ascent bra was $95 and is now $47.50. Half the bra is made out of mesh for superior ventilation and breath ability. The top straps are all mesh and the thick racer back design is made out of mesh too. The Opaque black bottom covers the bits you need.
I am enamoured with the Aurora Hoodie in Light Grey Heather / Black. Not only is it made by a Canadian company, the jacket is Made in Canada with French terry knit and quilted Montreal-sourced geometric sleeves. So it is Canadian, made in Canada, and uses Canadian sourced materials. This is like the trifecta of supporting your home country! The price is also mesmerizing: originally $225, the jacket is on sale for $67.50.
You should have an easy time finding leggings and more with these stellar discounts. The Frontier Jogger Pant – Light Grey Heather / Black was $175 and is now $52.50. Again, we are talking Made in Canada with some materials sourced from Montreal. I am a huge fan of locally sourced food, clothing, furniture, and more! If the grey/black combo doesn’t strike you, then pick up the Frontier Jogger Pant – Black Leopard Print that was $155 and is now $46.50.
If in the market for shorts, there are three remarkably affordable pairs you can score. The Blaze Short – Black / Green was $90 and is now $27. Next, the Facade Short – Dark Blue Denim was also $90 and is now $27. For the more adventurous (like me), the Sway Short – Black Denim was $115 and is now $34.50. The mesh V on the front is quite striking.
I like to support companies like these when I have the money. It is SO RARE that companies make their products in Canada anymore. We vote with our dollar, and my dollar says I want more manufacturing in Canada.
Shipping is a flat $8.95 USD across Canada.
