The Frank Shorter Gore-Tex suit was produced by CB Sports and was a favorite amongst Lo-Lifes and boosters alike throughout Brooklyn. The tracksuits were made for marathon runners and was manufactured with Gore-Tex fabric to keep them cool from sweating and dry during rain. The line of track suits were released to the market in 1987 and were well received by the marathon community. Fashion forward boosters gravitated to the colorful suits that excelled way past the traditional windbreaker made by Adidas and Nike; which were popular with the B-Boys during the 80s.
Lo-Lifes called these track suits "Running Man" Gore-Tex suits because of the way the logo looked. The logo had a silhouette of five men running a marathon with a white appliqué over a velvet patch. The suits also had a tab sewn on the side of the jacket and pant leg with the word GORE-TEX embroidered into it. You weren't an official booster if you didn't have one of these suits. The tracksuits went hand to hand with Polo by Ralph Lauren Rugbys and sweatshirts. The suits came in similar bright primary colors very similar to the Polo brand, making it easy to match and coordinate the pieces together. These suits held just as much weight as Polo did in the boosting stratosphere.
