Respect Your Universe Apparel Inc (CVE: RYU) CEO Marcello Leone spoke to Proactive’s Stocktube about the brand and the future of urban athletics.
He said: ”The athletic apparel space is really the one growing category in the apparel industry and is forecasted for the next several years to be the dominating clothing category that will continue to grow”.
”The industry, when we talk about athletic apparel, you hear a lot about athleisure wear and it’s what we’re used to seeing very much on the streets when you talk to some of our competitors that are in the space. For us at Respect Your Universe we wanted to create a product for athletes that were designed for athletes, that were specifically designed to solve problems athletes have”.
Leone added: ”Respect Your Universe is definitely not an athleisure brand – we went out to create tailored innovation for the urban athlete and we really went out to create a new category in the space that today is referenced to the urban athletic category”.
