About Us

Sole Active is a woman-owned activewear/lifestyle boutique.  The mission was born out of the need for fashionable active and lifestyle apparel, perfect for the girl with a busy schedule - founder and owner Lauren Makinson’s goal is to provide women “fashion that functions.” Brands carried at Sole Active provide function and style from studio to street, with the latest trends in activewear and athleisure to create mix and match outfits perfect for the gym or happy hour. Makinson, who has experience in activewear design from Urban Outfitters and Under Armour, wanted to create a space featuring harder-to-find brands focusing on total wellness of body, mind, and soul. 

Sole Active’s devotion to giving back truly sets it apart - one of the boutique’s core values is taking care of the community and world around us. Each brand carried is carefully selected to ensure it is woman owned, environmentally, socially, and/or philanthropically conscious, and many give back to their respective local community or use sustainable materials to create their apparel.
