Where to get 'Parkour' sweatpants?
« on: October 23, 2008, 07:43:55 PM »
I've seen traceurs with sweatpants that say "parkour" on them. Does anyone know where I can get a pair of them myself? I've seen Urban Freeflow's but they aren't the same as ones I've seen in some videos, so I'm a bit curious.

Basically if you own an iron, you should be able to make your own by purchasing some iron on letters and a blank pair of pants.


I attached a picture of what I did a while ago. The letters were just from a craft store and the pants were from Sports Authority. I don't remember how long it took but I now have custom pants that look exactly how I want them and was able easily to make another exactly the same for my bud. One pair took 2 packs of letters, $8 each and the pants were $17. I only needed 3 packs of letters for the 2 pairs but they are all different so you'd need to check that out for yourself.

The pants can be found here: http://www.tracehq.com/store/
“You do freerunning or parkour, I don’t know, but both are the same. Some people are worried about it, but they are people that don’t train for too long, people that…in terms of training, aren’t mature yet. […] One day I’d like to wake up, open my window, and everyones doing parkour." -Ali Shelton

The bags on that website look awesome.  Too bad it's all so expensive.  Pounds are about 2USD, so the pants would cost about $49 with shipping after converting :-\

I'd much rather use Alec's idea and make my own.  In fact, I probably will!  They look pretty good for iron ons.

We'll have some in the APK store in the next few weeks. We've been talking about this for a long time. We need to find some that WON'T cost $40 by the time we get the pants and have the image printed and pay for shipping, etc :)

Agree, I asked around also to the people who made my shirts and they will end up costing over $30 just to make them.

Oh yea... all credit for the amazingly awesome iron-letters parkour pants idea goes to the brilliant and powerful Ozzi Quintero. ;D



Bulk Packs. I would like to be able to get a pack of like 10 different shirts or like 2 pants and 5 shirts. Have you looked very far into the process of getting these shirts Mark? Are "Bulk Packs" for <$50~$70 a possibility? Unless you're getting really high quality shirts or something, they won't be really expensive right?

Mark I would definitely Buy two pairs of those parkour pants if they were reasonably priced.

Also I think we could give all of those UF shirts and their designers a run for their money...

Hey if you dont care about the official parkour sweatpants, then i recommend doing this.  Go to a goodwill or a cheap thrift store, and just buy sweatpants.  You can get them for like 2 dollars and they could be rather nice, and then buy those iron on letters and put parkour on it.  I could care less about them saying parkour but i bought like 3 sweatpants for 6 dollars

If you iron on the letters will they eventually peel off after being washed?

I was afraid of that with a shirt I made for XC once.  And after a year of wearing it around, they are barely peeling off at all.  Parkour will probably make them wear and fall off sooner considering how much we interact with the environment, however if you're really afraid of that happening there is a simple solution.  Break out that sewing machine or needle and thread and set to work  =)  haha  That will definitely extend the life of the letters.  But also, if it falls off, you could just buy another letter and iron it back on too.
