The Founder of Outdoor Voices Has Moved On. Mostly.

Over the past few years, we’ve watched many mascots of the former Girlboss era (circa 2014–2020) find their second acts. Leandra Medine Cohen, who stepped down from Manrepeller after an employee backlash, is writing a newsletter on Substack. Audrey Gelman, the fallen CEO of The Wing, is now running a “country” store in Brooklyn. But no sequel may be more relatable than that of Ty Haney, the founder and former CEO of the athleisure start-up Outdoor Voices. Haney went on to found two new ventures, but this past March, three years after her highly public departure from the company, she began leaving comments on Outdoor Voices’s Instagram posts, pointing out the many things she thought was going wrong with the clothes — a misplaced panel here, a poor design choice there. Recently, she sat down with senior writer Sangeeta Singh-Kurtz to discuss her new projects and to air the many things left on her mind years after the 2020 Outdoor Voices debacle. “I’m a Libra,” she told Sangeeta. “I only feel reconciled when things are fair.”
