tights and leggings for male runner (Read 600 times)

    I wear tights, I have a penis, get over it.

    How high is it?  My vertical jump isn't what it used to be.

     

    I like tights in the colder weather.  Started using them in the early 80s, have two pairs these days.  Regular running pants are baggy enough that I'm always worried about catching my (size-12) foot on the pant-leg and tripping myself.

    I'm back!

      The only thing I won't wear while running is a thong or speedos.

       

      Chicken.

        I learned the difference btw tights and leggings the other day. I went in to wake my two youngest for school while still dressed from the morning's run. My 7 y.o. says, "You're wearing leggings, dad."

         

        When I said they were running rights she corrected me. "If they covered your feet they'd be tights. Those are leggings."

         

        Okay then.

        Runners run.

          Okay then.

           

          Awesome.

           

          By the way, running rights are some of the my favorite running cloths.

            Hey now. TanyaS gets to heckle me for life--that's how it works--but this is just unfair.

              I'm running - if you can see "details" put down the binoculars. Only non-runners should get hung up on how manly you look. The only thing I won't wear while running is a thong or speedos.

              I don't understand guys running who worry or get upset over what other guy runners are wearing to keep them warm, short of actual twig and berries exposure. Put down the fashion police badge and outrage and pick up the pace... If seeing a guy running in tights upsets someone, how do they manage to watch the "manly" game of football (they wear tights!!!!) without going into a frenzy?

               

              Disclaimer: I myself do not wear tights. Not because of some sexual insecurity, but because at 50 I don't have the legs to pull it off. If i had the legs of Usain Bolt I would wear tights everywhere I went!!!!

                  Wow.  That article is indeed almost enough to convince me want to stop wearing tights for running.

                    Or to start running in high-tops and a tank. We could get a The Men of Running Ahead calendar going.

                      In most things, I say wear what you want, what do I care?

                       

                      But tights on men should only be solid dark colors.  OK, camouflage is probably fine.  But definitely not the US flag and double definitely not red.  Reminds me of that awful cycling team picture that went around...

                        I've always been a big fan of Sporthills.  Tapered fit, don't catch the wind as much and very sturdy.  The only time I wear tights is cold weather racing.

                          This is a good idea!    We could even have a Men in white tights edition.

                            I was doing ok until they got to the polka-dot ones!

                              I had a nice pair of Sporthills, but I destroyed them. Got up in my hotel room one race morning... forgot to pack shorts. Oops. Borrowed some scissors from the front desk and made my own.
