Dick’s Sporting Goods will soon launch VRST, a men’s sports line, both online and in more than 400 Dick’s stores across the country in the coming weeks.

The line includes pants, joggers, shorts, t-shirts, hoodies, and zippers at prices ranging from $ 30 to $ 120 that rival athletes like Lululemon, Nike, and Under Armor. The line will be selling sizes between small and double XL.
VRST is the second brand to be sold exclusively at Dick’s and on its own e-commerce platform VRST.com. The store had previously teamed up with country music star Carrie Underwood for her athleisure line of the same name, CALIA.

VRST not only offers sophisticated performance clothing for running and training, but also comfortable, stylish pieces with first-class workmanship to be worn around town, with friends, or at work or at home. “
