Over the past seven years, I have worn exactly one (1) style of workout pant. It’s a basic Nike legging, 15 pairs of which I’ve acquired and retired—a fact that’s slightly startling, considering they cost $90 a pop. Still, I adore the way they fit when I put them on and how they feel during rowing classes, boxing sessions and everything in between.
I’d have been perfectly content wearing that style for the rest of my fitness-filled days, but a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to try out a pair of Ultracor Lux Knockout Print Leggings. Although they’re black, they’re a bit bolder than I’m used to, thanks to an all-over star print in a muted dusty blue color (they’re also available in matte and patent black versions). I was hesitant—could I really cheat on my Nikes?—but decided to give them a shot when fate intervened. (By fate, I mean they were the only clean pair in my drawer.)
I wore them to a spin class and within approximately 35 seconds, I could tell that they were about to dethrone my trusted Nikes.
