Top 5 Running Tights
One of the things I’m probably asked most often is where to find funky, colourful, patterned running leggings. It is an eternal struggle chicas. It seems the majority of the sporting world believe we just like our leggings to come in a variety of black with fluorescent pink piping. Delightful. However, some brands are starting to cotton on to our frustrations and every now and then, some fashionable, functional leggings come along. Yay for being stylish when you run!
These are some of the my favourites that I’ve seen kicking around the web at the moment.
Nike – I love me some Nike, so they’re always my go-to brand for leggings. I’ve seen quite a few girls pounding the pavements in these recently. They come in three colourways. A nice way to light up your legs on these chilly winter runs.
Asics – These are from Asics more boutique line called Ayami. I came across this collection last year and was pleasantly surprised as, well, in all honesty, I find a lot of Asics stuff to heavily favour the function side of things with little consideration for style. But the select few Ayami pieces are really nice. These leggings come in a black and grey colourway also.
Black Milk - OK, so technically, these aren’t running leggings, but they’re Lycra and they’ll get the job done, but more to the point, HELLO! Tetris leggings! I love Black Milk leggings. They’re the perfect cross over for those who like to run in style. (Their pricing is in Australian dollars. G’day!)
LuluLemon – As a Canadian, I am contractually obliged to love all things LuluLemon, but they make it pretty easy. Yes, it’s pricey, but the quality speaks for itself. The detail in these leggings is pretty special. A definite must if you’re willing to splurge a bit.
H&M – In case you didn’t know, H&M have a pretty sweet little sportswear line going on. How cute are these leggings? And let’s just all take a moment to praise the H&M price point *round of applause*. If you’re not looking to break the bank, this is the way to go. (They have some super cute sports bras too).
