You Asked and We Listened: The New Lesley Knicker

A good capri is a staple of any girls running wardrobe. And the world is filled with workout capris. So when we created the Lesley Knicker we knew it had to be made specifically for running and offer something unique, high quality and purposeful. Yes, of course you can get your down dog or hundred on in the Lesley Knickers, but every detail was made first and foremost for getting your miles in.

We have gotten great feedback on the Lesley Knickers over the years. But one thing that the majority of you wished for was "more compression". When you pulled on the Lesley Knickers you wanted to feel that supportive hug of the fabric (without losing any of the stretch). So after a couple of seasons tracking down the perfect fabric blend, we have updated the Lesley Knicker! It's more compressive. It's more breathable. It's ready for more miles.

The details we obsessed over are the reason we love the Lesley Knicker:

High compression with super stretch = happy legs mile after mile. Flatlock stitching throughout means ZERO chaffing. Even happier legs.

Breathable mesh panels behind knees and at hip add breathability. The Lesley Knickers fabric is perfected blended to pull sweat away from the body and release it. Wicking with high breathability is crucial to a running capri. We wear these knickers daily in Seattle (fall, winter, spring... even summer). Oiselle office tested and office approved.

In my opinion, there can never be enough zip storage in running apparel. The last thing you want to think about is your key bouncing out during the run. And no one likes carrying their sports gel in their running bra. Seriously. Zip it! The perfect back pocket for a key, Gatorade money or a sports gel for the long run.

We hope you love the NEW Lesley Knicker as much as we do - and as always we'd love to hear from you! feedback@oiselle.com
