The Authentic Athlete was established in 2013. After three years serving the greater Fairfield area, the store has moved to the Post Road in the heart of Darien.

The Authentic Athlete is a sports boutique that excels in outfitting athletes of any age, teams and sports organizations with custom gear. The Authentic Athlete has already been a fixture in the area providing the logo wear for the Darien Junior Football and Chargers Lacrosse programs.

The Authentic Athlete is dedicated to simplifying the process of outfitting programs, while providing the finest custom apparel and uniforms. The shop is known for their personal touch and attention to detail. There are many brands on premises including Under Armour and a on-site graphics team to help ensure quality and unique designs.

The Authentic Athlete is headed by Chris Sanford who has 18 years of experience in retail and team business. Chris originally from New Canaan, now resides in Fairfield with his wife Michelle and three children. “We are very pleased to move the shop to Darien, town is a great fit for us, and we are confident the public will feel the same about The Authentic Athlete.”

Whether you are in the market for footwear, apparel or custom Darien items, The Authentic Athlete is sure to become your new favorite shop in town!
