I’m seriously impressed with the Nike items I stumbled upon this week and have so many reviews I’m working on. This post is specific to the run tights I tried on which is the Nike Power Epic Lux Run Tight. I first grabbed the printed Nike Power Epic Lux Run Tight at the top of this post thinking I would just try them on. The print isn’t really one I would gravitate to but I wanted something neutral I could try with all the different tops. This print is the one I ended up bringing home though because I found it very slimming and flattering. Something about the movement of the triangles around the leg, and the lighter colors strategically placed. When you look closely at the print it’s actually muted ink blue, brownish grey, charcoal, white and varying tones of ice blue. In all of the three colors I tried on I found the lower leg seam detailing and contrasting especially flattering, as well as the upper but double seam and butt arch. These are all size L and they fit equivalent to other brands size 10, yet these are slightly more compressive and flattering. The material somehow disappears all my lumpy bits, even in the harsh lighting of this fitting room which would normally highlight every lump and bump. I love the nice mid rise, wide waistband as well.
These tights come with all the bells and whistles run tights should come with; a sweat proof zippered gel pocket in the back with two open gel pockets around the top of the waist, flat seams, mesh ventilation, and a waist cinch. They are opaque, soft and silky and very cool feeling. The material is a nylon spandex blend which I’ve always found cooler than polyester blends. I’m going to be keeping an eye on the Nike Power Epic Lux Run Tights and I’ll be getting more colors and prints as they catch my eye. For now I purchased these printed ones but I also really love the Dark Raisin ones. The only reason I didn’t bite the bullet on the raisin ones is that I’ve purchased a few Black Grape tights already. The purples at Nike now, including the coordinating shoes, are incredible.
