Vaulting World always supports new initiatives from our community, that’s why we wanted to make you discover these two guys and their fabulous brand: Conrad & Lauren.
Lucky us, we have received our favourite leggings from Conrad & Lauren to try it on and tell you more about the feeling of wearing something different: The model Espri-Gold.
We love the combination of white and gold and a bit of yellow for some details. The design is pure and elegant so we are definitely in love with this model! The fabric is soft and thick enough so you don’t have to worry about wearing white pants 😉
Regarding the feeling while training, it is very much appreciable that the waistband is tight and high to the belly button more or less. In two words, chic and comfy!

About Conrad & Lauren
“I am Lauren, an international vaulter of Belgium, 21 years old. Konraad is my friend and also my lunger. He’s busy in the ICT world.”
Lauren Vanlerberghe has been vaulting for 10 years. Before starting with equestrian vaulting she did gymnastics and acrobatics. She has won the Belgian Vaulting Championship seven times in a row and competes internationally.
Konraad Vergauwen trains the vaulting horses lunging and riding. Together with Lauren he has been Belgian Champion four times as her lunger.
How did you start the project together?
We give vaulting and lunging clinics and shows in Belgium with the name Conrad&Lauren. We already had the idea to make an own brand in sport clothes two years ago but never made it real. Last year I got the first legging from Konraad as my christmas present. It’s a legging printed with a photo of me and our horse Espri competing in Wiesbaden. I liked it a lot and this made the start of our own webshop.
What is your ambition? Are you planning to diversify your activity?
There are still new designs every week, we also make tops, phone cases and bags. All these products can be printed with a design out of our store or any design the customer wants.
Is it a full-time job?
No, Konraad has his full time job in software sector and I’m still studying psychology. Konraad made the webshop and every order goes automatically.
Who makes the design?
We both do, some are made by Konraad, some are mine, some are made together. But the costumer can also create his own design. Any photo, color, text…
How do you promote the brand?
Specially with the social media, we were already in the newspaper in Belgium!
Do you sell worldwide?
Yes, we sell all over the world, we have already sold leggings to Austria, Romania, The Netherlands…
Are you going to competitions to sell your products?
No, not yet 😉 Maybe later, this year maybe at CVI Belgium.
Are you targeting only vaulters or also other disciplines such as yoga?
