I loved these pants! The material is really soft and stretchy but also supportive which is important for me as I do a lot of jumping around. I would of given these pants a 5* if it wasn't for the waist which I found was a little too loose for me. I was always pulling them up so have returned and have purchased a size smaller. So I would say if you are stuck between which size to order definitely go for a size down!
So I spent AGES looking for a pair of shorts I could wear to workout in that wasn't so short that it would show my butt cheeks! (What's it with the extra short shorts these days) and I finally came across these :-) what a god send! I'm a size 12-14 and bought a size Large. They fit loose, but that's what I was after. I like the internal mesh pants, giving that extra security that someone's not going to get an eyeful of undies when doing 'leg raises' or alike. Only complaint would be that the draw string can disappear into the waistband after they have gone through the washing machine. Good quality light material, I would recommend these to anyone looking for a pair of shorts that come to a respectable few inches above the knee.
Usually I have to try both XS and S but this was the right fit for XS which is my size. The waist band is a great fit and I found that I didn't need to use the drawstrings but its great to have the option. I like the alternative placement of the traditional three stripes as I tend to find the other designs with the stripes on either side of each leg rather monotonous.
I am a DI collegiate athlete, so I rather athletic legs.. I usually wear either S or M depending on the fit of the item I have a 28" waist and am 5'7". I weigh 140 lbs. I got them in size M and they were a little too loose on my thighs. I love that they have the drawstring in the waist though, because too often I have this problem where my thighs "eat my pants." What I mean by that is that it will fit my thighs but not my waist... and then the pants will slink down a bit 'cause I had to buy them to accommodate my thighs. So the drawstring is awesome for that. The back pocket is great for my keys when I run. I ended up returning them and getting a size small, which fit nice and tight, like a pair of tights should. I've posted my video review of the tights as well.
Fit was true to size and the top is well made and good quality as you would expect from Adidas. A little too hot for running on warmer days, a slightly shorter length top might work well. Adidas made a climalite top a few years back that was a bit retro, not quite so fitted shaped, slightly shorter and felt somewhat cooler for running. I was hoping this would feel the same.
The shorts are very well designed. It has a wide waist band, which accommodates a pocket that you can slip your car key or tiny personal alarm, or a pound coin (not big enough for a phone). The fabric is comfortable with movement, especially on the inner thigh, and it keeps you dry and cool in the balmy summer evenings we've had.
These are amazing shorts! The stretchy wide waistband is so comfortable and the inner draw cord helps them stay put. The waist also hits at a perfect spot if you don't have a perfectly flat stomach. The material is very light and breathes very well. I also appreciate the 4" inseam I hate tugging down my shorts when I'm running. These shorts do seem to run slightly large; my old Adidas shorts are mediums and the small fit perfectly in these shorts (5'6" 138,lbs, 35" hips 27 1/4 " natural waist). It's not in the description but it's nice to note that these have an inner brief. Hope they make these in more colors!!
This is my second pair of Adidas running shoes. I adore these shoes. They are a perfect fit and have very good cushioning and support. I don't like a stiff, heavy running shoe, which is why I went back to the Adidas brand when my old shoes wore out. I do have a somewhat narrow foot. I noticed some other reviews indicate that they are too narrow for them. So, if you have average width feet, you might try these on before purchasing them. I will continue to make Adidas my running shoe of choice!
Was looking for something trainer like not bulky that is comfortable for walking in to be honest and needed to be waterproof. Look great, are supportive and lightweight They are a slim fit which for me suits. These tick all boxes. Very happy with my purchase.
I've been using these for a couple of weeks cross country over bridle ways and through fields of long wet grass and my feet have come out dry every time. The only complaint I have is that the tongue is sewn in under the laces, so with my high instep, they are a struggle to pull on and off.
