What Inspired Francesca’s Look:
“My favorite is anything that is California Boho but I love to mix and match styles. I styled my AEO jeans with some platforms, fringe bag and off the shoulder boho top for a easy summer time look. I love anything that is flirty, feminine and a slight casual feel. The 70’s look is very “in” right now but I have also always been a long time fan of anything  vintage and slightly nostalgic. I added fringe and platforms with big round sunnies to reference the 70’s vibes.”How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl

The coolest new partnership: AEO Flex/Denim x WFPF

If you asked the all-knowing Internet, “Internet, what is Parkour?” you’d likely get an answer describing it as “the activity of moving rapidly through any environment–typically an urban one–while running, jumping and climbing over obstacles.”

If you asked a Parkour historian, you’d probably learn that this “new” sport’s roots go all the way back to the early 1900s, when French naval lieutenant Georges Hebert developed a training method that combined obstacle course challenges with what he considered to be a more “natural” way of moving.

But if you asked any of us at the World Freerunning Parkour Federation (WFPF) that very same question, you’d receive a different (and definitely unanimous) response: Parkour is a way of life, a way of looking at the world and believing that there’s no obstacle we can’t overcome. Part martial art, part extreme sport, and part creative expression, Parkour’s unique physical and mental practice is truly a lifestyle–and one that continues to grow today, in almost every country around the globe.

That’s where we come in. Founded in 2008, WFPF brought together some of the world’s most accomplished Parkour athletes in an effort to preserve the sport’s values while also developing it responsibly. Over the years, we’ve worked with thousands of practitioners in over 50 countries. We’ve also partnered with a limited number of brands–usually those already rooted in the Parkour community–that share our enthusiasm for leading a positive, outside-the-box lifestyle.

So, when AEO came to us with their new AEO Flex/Denim line, we were curious… and when they told us that the jeans feature an innovative denim technology that allows for all kinds of extreme movement, we were excited.

We decided to put them to the ultimate test: Let’s see what some of the world’s top Parkour athletes can really do in them… and, hey, let’s film it too.

The result? Not only did we have an awesome time making the video, but, well, let’s just say you gotta see it to believe it. These jeans are the real deal.
