The story of EI8HT SPORTS started when I lost my grandfather, which plunged me into severe depression. Exercise helped me pull my life back together. EI8HT was launched in December 2018, driven by my battle with depression and my ambition to bring high-quality exercise gear to the Pacific. A brand to promote strength, independence, and resilience. We combine traditional Samoan patterns with science, to create comfortable and effective compression wear for exercise. Engineered with material that regulates body temperature, its moisture wicking properties are conducive to the Pacific climates. We encourage holistic health by supporting and encouraging people, especially the disadvantaged, to take control of their own wellbeing. We believe everything is interlinked, so health, sports, life, culture and spirituality are on a continuum. Our vision is to promote the brand and its philosophy across the world.
