The activewear brand to know – Falke!

Falke began as a small knitting business in 1895, founded by the German Falke family. Since then, the brand has expanded as one of the world’s leading companies in quality hosiery, tights, socks and underwear, exporting to over 30 countries. Falke is renowned for their range of superior quality products, from a century of experience and product innovation, their designs consistently deliver comfort and beauty to the customer.


In 2005, Falke expanded into sportswear to go alongside their successful range of sport socks…a perfect, natural progession from their hosiery range. With the correct product innovation, Falke Ergonomic Sport System was created offering a full range of supportive, performance enhancing products. If anyone knows how to create exceedingly comfortable, compression products, it’s Falke. Their activewear collections have done so well in fact, in 2006, the Falke Ess collection was presented with the Best Running Clothing Award for its perfect combination of high-tech functionality and innovative design.


Why we love it


At Hip & Healthy, the quality of the activewear we stock is incredibly important to us as we want to inspire our customers to exercise and meet their fitness goals with clothing that won’t get in the way. The quality standard of Falke sportswear puts no limitations on your training as the highly elastic fabric helps regulate body temperature by transporting moisture from the skin. When exercising it is essential that you feel supported and comfortable in your clothing which is why Falke is already becoming a firm favourite of ours. Their compression technology is used to reduce muscle vibration so you can really push yourself and feel confident in your workout gear. Falke will ultimately help you to succeed in your fitness goals by giving you maximum support to enhance your workout with no aggravations. Something we particularly love about Falke is their focus on quality as well as creating beautiful designs that meets our style needs!


What workouts is Falke best for?


If you are a runner, this brand is perfect for you! The Compression Long Tights provide comfort with body climate control and maximum freedom of movement along with a handy pocket on the inside to put a key in. The socks provide comfortable padding and innovative toe boxes in a high-quality finish to reduce the chance of getting blisters, which is ideal for those who love smashing out a few miles or any form of high pressure exercise.


We wanted to offer a selection for impact bras, which is why we chose a range of Falke compression bras that offer maximum to minimum support for your preference. If you are into high impact workouts, the Control Maximum Support Bra will be ideal for you as there are two-layers of highly elastic technical fabrics to hold everything in place so there will be no distractions or lack of support. The sports bra has an adjustable band below the breasts with a hook and eye fastener so it is not a separate arm workout to get it on and off…we’ve all been there! With a range of beautiful colours this bra does not compromise on style, so you can feel supported as well as stylish.


If you are a cyclist the Falke Lightweight Gloves are great to protect your hands from the cold winds. The seamless finish will guarantee a perfect fit and the technical materials help regulate your body’s temperature.


If taking part in low impact exercise such as pilates or yoga is more your thing, the Madison Low Support Bra will be amazing for you. The seamless two-layered fabric gives comfort and the wide straps combined with the racer back gives perfect mobility.
