Oh wow you guys!! I did some major damage at the Nike store today and I’m going to have to separate my fit review into several posts over the next few days. Spoiler alert though, I spent bank today. In my quest to try some new fitness apparel brands I never imagined Nike would make it to the top of my list. I’ve forgotten about Nike over the years with the exception of their shoes, and I’m not quite sure what inspired me to even look through the clothing on their website but I’m really glad I did.
I dragged my poor kids to the mall after school to see if they had the Nike Power Legendary Tights that I ordered online yesterday and they had two of the three colorways I liked. Definitely the medium in the blue colorway is going to have to be returned because large is the right size for me, and I’m going to try and chase down a large or stalk the website for them to pop back up.
There was just so much color in store, and so many color options for each style of tank, tee, long sleeve and tights. Warm colors, cool colors, neutrals, jewel tones, crazy prints – and somehow they all integrated very well with each other. I had to try these on first since these where the ones that caught my eye like a magnet on the website. The material is 80% Nylon/20% Spandex, pretty much like luon. They don’t have a ton of stretch to them like WU’s do, but they are compressive and comfortable and soft. These passed the opacity test for me in store but I need to wait for my order to arrive so I can double check the opacity in natural light. These are a size L on me and I typically take a size 10 in Lululemon – these felt more like a size 9, which actually works best for me. They are snug going on but once on they stay in place. If you are on the upper side of a size 10, go with an XL. They are a mid rise which I love, and a great length for me. Pants, but not so long that they fully cover my feet and need to be hemmed. I also really loved the waist detail in the back with the ‘v’ shaped hip seam. I can’t recommend these tights enough. If the color and print entices you as much as it did me, you should definitely give them a try.
Look for my follow up fit review for the other pieces I tried on today. I’ll try and post it tonight or tomorrow morning.
