Outside Magazine on Bluesmiths` Spartan Shorts


Some amazing news reached the Bluesmiths team this week. An excited triathlete friend gave us a call to let us know that our Spartan shorts were starring in the December 2012 issue of Outside. So we tracked a copy down and there we were: “nicest we’ve ever worn,” “they look and feel twice as good as your average boardshorts,” “will last twice as long.” Basically, a rave – which, when it comes from people as experienced and knowledgeable as those at Outside, is just a massive compliment. So thanks to the Outside crew!
