Nike Power Legendary

Ooh guys, so I think I just fell in love hard with a new colorful print. In my last post I shared that I was window shopping and wanting to place an order on some new activewear brands that I haven’t yet tried. I filled my shopping cart with a few options but then I had to get my kids to dance class, and then myself to Olympic lifting after that. I actually dug out my Varley crops for my workout to remind myself that I’m wanting to try some new designs. Now that I’m home I happened to check the Nike.com website just before checking out with my other selections, and I fell in lust and love with this Nike print. So much so that I ordered all three colors, and had to order the blue version in a size down because my size wasn’t available. Um, I love that I was able to order this in CAD off a Canadian website and get free shipping on my order. I was feeling a bit harumph at all the fit reviews of other brands that I don’t have access to happening on the facebook groups. I’m so looking forward to giving these a try, and I really hope that I can make the blue pair work despite being a size down. I’ll post a fit review and a workout review the minute they arrive.

Have any of you tried these ones on before?

    I don’t own any of the above pairs, but I do have a couple of the Power Legendary and they are compressive and durable IMO. I’ve used them mostly for cardio classes and yoga.

      How do you find the fit? I haven’t tried Nike tights on in many years,

        I take a 6 in Lulu shorts and usually 6 or 8 in the tights. For nike tights, I almost always get a medium. Hope that helps.

    Hi,

    NikePower Legendary is actually one of my absolute favorite leggings. I think they are like wunder under, but better compression. The wunder unders are slightly more flattering fabric across the thighs, in both luxtreme and luon. It likes hugs the body structure a bit nicer, but the legendary holds everything in just super well and wont slide. The legendarys have also a nice shape by the lower parts of the legs which also is the case with the wunder unders.

    I have found the Nike tights I have bought in the past for running and weight training have stretched out way faster than lululemon tights. I wished I had sized down for every pair of Nike tights I have ever bought. Maybe it is because they size in small, medium, large, etc rather than numeric sizing.

      Interesting. I’m glad I ordered two sizes then so I can compare fit.

        👆🏼 id also agree that if you’re between sizes in the legendary styles, choose the smaller one.

      Hi, Yes Nike tights tend to stretch, but legendary is their most exclusive tight and holds up extremli well in my opinion.

    Nike’s color has really popped lately. I walked into a Nike store recently and my senses went on overdrive! I wonder why (she said sarcastically)? Oh ya! That’s right, Holman moved over to Lululemon and Nike got a new head designer.

      Lol! Too true. I’m very impressed with these prints and colors. I need to get to the Nike store in Vancouver this week and see if I can try more colourful items on.

    I had the same reaction, they released the black color and the blue color about a month ago, the red one was added
    This past week. I LOVE the blue! They had them marked down to 99$ USD and then when they did their extra20% off sale items last week, they put the back up to regular price . One of my big gripes with Nike.com is their stock disappears when they do certain sales and they add it back after the sale is done. They had these at Macy’s and I tried them on about a month ago but wasn’t totally sold on them for 130 usd. They’re comfy and I love Nike legendary pants- I lived in Nike legendary pants for a few years before I discovered lululemon, and never had quality issues/sizing/sheerness or anything. Also never had an issue with them falling down which might be a concern when trying on. Sometimes I find them at marshalls and always feel like I scored. They run true to size- I think Nike pro pants run about a size small and all of their 2017 Nike epic run tights fit smaller than they used to and usually a little sheer in the bum. I’ve been impressed with the Nike prints and bold colors so far this year and went right to Boston Niketown when I first saw them online. They’re beautiful in person but definitely need to try on different sizes for different styles, I don’t think Nike sizing is consistent across styles the way lulu usually is. I would’ve done fit for reviews for you if I wasn’t 8 months pregnant lol I hope you love at least one of the colors, excited to see your review!! Sorry for rambling 😝

      Also, Ebates had 15% back on Nike last week. I hope it was super high in Canada when you ordered!

      Omg that is so extremely helpful. I’m going to head to the Nike store late this afternoon to try on a few styles. Hopefully they have these there.

      I am always happy to have guest fit reviews for other brands on the blog (or even just shares privately with me). Anytime you want to, just let me know.

        Yayyy, I hope you post reviews !! My niketown didn’t have this style, oddly. Only Macy’s. They’re super helpful with looking up the style- if you show them the style at Nike.com on your phone, they can tell you right away if they have it!! 🙂 have fun !!!

    I have a pair from two years ago. I went with a small and am a 6 in Lululemon. They are beautiful but I find the fabric is just too warm for indoor cardio workouts so they rarely get worn.
