Satisfy Running is for alternative running culture. Built for those that run because they’re compelled to, running for enjoyment instead of just performance - unstrapped from the apps that judge you on speed or mileage. They’re about promoting total health - feeling good, looking good, and chasing your best self. Running feeds the brain, makes it bright.
A good run is a self-centering, endorphin-fueled chase for that elusive runner’s high when you forget your breath, let your body keep stride, and free your mind to wander around at a higher level - connecting all the disparate thoughts over the course of a good route. No one wants to run in circles, but completing a circuit finds positive solutions within natural rhythms.
Satisfy Running celebrates pushing through the pain into meditative control. It’s the ultimate self vs. self sport - our evolutionary specialty that makes us human. It’s the physical manifestation of how we think. By focusing on essentialism within their designs and adding elements for the underserved solo runner, Satisfy provides for the daily runner what the big brands reserve only for champions.
Coming from the fashion industry (with his previous label April 77) and a background in skateboarding, art, and music - designer Brice Partouche started Satisfy Running in 2015 because he couldn’t find any activewear brands that represented him or his running addiction.
While the big brands focus on marketing their competitive edge, they also invest very little in the actual product. Satisfy takes the opposite approach and gives runners high-performance, custom-developed fabrication and considered construction elements that eliminate all potential distractions from achieving the runner’s high.
Each piece is made with innovative, breathable, wind-proof and water-repellent fabrics that feel as light as the open air. They are also deeply committed to sustainability, developing revolutionary fabrics within the EU and committing to only 100% recycled, organic cotton wherever cotton is used.
Let’s break down the fabrics:
Ripstop Tech-Silk is made with stretch and comfort in mind. It features full UV protection that reduces heat absorption to keep you cool while going the distance. Satisfy’s Ripstop Tech-Silk is made in Italy by a manufacturer founded in 1893, who has been producing luxury and technical fabrics since 1955. Commonly used in parachutes and military gear, Ripstop is a structured fabric interwoven with thicker threads which gives it a grid pattern and makes it resistant to tearing. Tech-Silk has the feel of silk and is extremely lightweight, durable and resilient.

GhostFleece is an unfathomably light combination of Polartec and Rippy that together create an insulation system designed to keep you warm and dry during activities in cold and windy conditions.
Their proprietary Justice Multi-Stretch Tech-Silk technology was developed in-house. This unique synthetic fabric is produced in France by a natural silk maker whose mill was founded in 1839 and pivoted in the 1960s to technical and elastic yarn manufacturing. Borrowing from medical technology, Justice is highly durable and resilient, but has a feel of silk and an incomparable lightness. It stretches naturally in every direction, following the body's movements while staying breathable. Justice dries astonishingly quickly, preventing bacteria from mixing with your sweat and staying odor free no matter how often you get out or how far you go.

Anti-Piling Micro Jersey
Anti-Pilling Micro Jersey is a knitted Italian four-way stretch fabric. The anti-pilling means you can stretch, do yoga, or a core workout on any surface without worrying about the integrity of the garment. As your practice gets more intense, the cool-to-touch nature of the fabric will help you keep pushing, as it is highly breathable and ensures that you stay dry by moving moisture away from the body and through the fabric where it can quickly evaporate.
DermaPeace is organic cotton blended with SeaCell by Pyratex. SeaCell was developed by Pyratex in response to the increasingly harmful impacts on our environment. To create SeaCell, seaweed is washed, dried, carefully ground, and incorporated into the cellulose fiber. Harvesting the seaweed is a gentle, selective, and sustainable process. It removes only the part of the seaweed that the plant can regenerate. The seaweed is entirely untreated so that all of its ecological value is retained, and uses processing methods that save both energy and resources. It is also completely biodegradable. With a high level of antioxidants which protect the skin against harmful free radicals, this zero-waste garment helps repair damage to skin cells.
SilverShell is an aluminum charged, high vis fabric that is like wearing the air. While lots of ultra-light fabrics need to be babied, this is made with ripstop threads to keep tears from wrecking the clothes. It’s also wind resistant and nearly waterproof.

AuraLite is super silky and lightweight, hovering around the body like an aura. Anti-wrinkle, anti-snagging, and UV resistant. Developed by a Japanese textile company which has been producing fabrics since the late 1800s. This technical fabric is knitted, giving it multi-linear stretch and a soft, natural texture.
Coffee Thermal is made from NILIT-HEAT coffee charcoal lining for a natural approach to complete insulation. It means you can go out wearing less and stay comfortable even on a cool morning or brisk evening. NILIT-HEAT Coffee Thermal fabric is made in France in collaboration with the Israeli nylon expert, NILIT. This multidimensional stretch fabric provides compression and is knitted with coffee-charcoal infused fibers making it naturally heat-retentive, bacterial and odor resistant. NILIT-HEAT Coffee Thermal uses waste products from coffee production.

The main fiber in Satisfy’s PYRATEX Active family is recycled polyamide, obtained through a sustainable recycling process called MCS which does not make use of chemical materials. Every 10 KG of recycled polyamide saves the amount of CO2 equivalent to 4000 led lights turned on for one hour and the equivalent of 100 plastic bottles.
MothTech utilizes body mapping technology to identify heat zones during activities, and then incorporates ventilation holes to keep you cool during a workout. Instead of revisiting the nylon mesh fabrics of middle school pinnies and shorts, MothTech is made from an over-washed combed cotton that feels more like an old beat-around favorite than performance athleticwear. Why not have both?

Space-O fabric naturally stretches in every direction, following the body’s movements. It was knitted in Italy and created using a laser microperforation technique called punch-out. This allows greater breathability and lighter weight while also providing an easy way to attach your number on race day.
PowerFlower has the feel of a silky durable nylon, but is constructed from plant-derived polymers. This technology has been through years of development and prototyping and is a milestone in sustainable technical gear.
CloudMerino is Satisfy’s merino wool program and the thinnest wool in the world, keeping it as lightweight and soft as possible without sacrificing merino’s characteristic durability and odor resistance. Unrivaled in its natural thermoregulatory capacity, no synthetic fabrics are necessary. Satisfy sources their Merino Optimo wool from Japan and finish production there in an effort to minimize the carbon footprint. The factory was founded in 1964 and is known for its high gauge jersey and innovative natural fabrics. The wool's porous fibers lift sweat away from your skin so you never feel clammy on a run and dries quickly in wet conditions since the creases of the wool trap your body's heat.

In addition to all those natural and technical fabrics, Satisfy Running adds as many bells and whistles as a minimalist, lightweight garment can hold. Each collection is filled with reflective patches, hidden sweatproof pockets for your key or cash or phone, bonded seams on the shorts to further cut the weight, and sweatproof bands at the waist. Everything is done with purpose and consideration.
Satisfy is a brand about representation, style and performance - individuality finally brought to a deeply personal sport. They make running cool and inspiring for a new generation of free thinking, self-reliant people that are self-improving toward something greater.
