Oiselle™ (pronounced wa-zell) translates to "bird" in French. The founder of Oiselle chose this name to capture that feeling of weightlessness a runner experiences when she hits her stride. To help women achieve that moment more often, Oiselle designed running clothes that would help women feel more comfortable and capable.
Sally Bergesen, the founder and CEO, decided to start her own running clothes business after she went to buy running shorts and couldn't find what she wanted. The running shorts were either unflattering in color or style. Going off of comfort and colors, Oiselle produces running shirts that have an unrestrictive cut and complimentary shades. When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you do better.
With stylish running shirts and running shorts, Oiselle has made amazing strides since its start in 2007. Compression running shorts that have a skirt wrapped around for style are just one of the innovative designs that blends function and flattering so well. Oiselle is built by women runners for women runners to help your feet take flight.
