So your New Year's goal is to get fit for summer? You’ve been saying it forever, but now that your wardrobe choices have dwindled since a particularly indulgent Christmas lunch, it’s time to get serious. No more leftover pav for breakfast. In 2014, you’re going to get fit.
And guess what? No excuses. You can afford new active wear! Adidas, Converse, Nike and Lululemon Melbourne outlets sell the great quality active wear at prices that will get your discounted footwear on and get you running out the door. Here are some of our favorite discount sports wear outlets in Melbourne:
1. Lululemon Outlet Melbourne
30 Rupert Street, Collingwood
At the Lululemon Outlet Melbourne in Collingwood, you’ll find a good range of discounted active wear made to suit every activity. From walking to running to downward dog, Lululemon sports wear is built to last. When we visited the Lululemon Outlet, the stock was not heavily discounted, but if you feel good in top quality active clothing below RRP, you’ll find it here. Definitely worth a look! The extra bonus about Lululemon is the service is super friendly.
Last year my cousin Liv visited the outlet to find a particular sock she loves running in, before running her first marathon. When she asked the assistant if they had them she could only find a similar pair which she gave to Liv for FREE! "Good luck with your first marathon, I hope it goes well". How nice is that!

2. Nike Factory Outlets (South Wharf DFO & University Hill)
There are two Nike Factory Outlets in Melbourne, one at South Wharf DFO and one at University Hill in Bundoora. You’ll score a full range of sportswear, casual wear, loungewear and weatherproof gear for men, women and children in all the colours Nike makes best. And it’s not just left over bits and pieces –the outlets are packed with excess stock from last season in great colours and designs and most sizes.
Sneakers start as low as $40 (many of the styles are still in retail stores), and you can pick up two Nike t-shirts for the price of less than one. Men and women’s Dri-FIT are up to 50% off. The Nike Factory Outlets get our discount tick of approval!
