Our Guide to this Season's Knickers, Capris, and Tights

Bottoms. All the bottoms! The lengths, the fabrics, the pockets. The run-ability. We're happy the fall season is finally here because we have our widest selection ever of sharp and sporty leggings. 

Below is a study in our selection. From the shortest length to the longest:


1. Knickers // 16-17" Inseam
The term is rooted in the UK (short for knickerbockers) but came to define below-the-knee pants for women. 

2. Capris // 18-20" Inseam
Typically mid-calf length. Our Spandos are outliers - actually measuring closer to 3/4 length tights

3. 3/4 Tights // 22-24" Inseam
An versatile length for many - with the hem falling between the bottom of the calf and above the ankle

4. Tights // 26-28" Inseam
Full length tights typically end at or directly above the ankle. Add crew socks and your legs are totally covered!

NEW JOGGING KNICKERS

Our classic Jogging Knickers are ideal for in between season, or if you're sure to get hot, even when the temps go down. With a hem that falls well below the knee, these work for women of a variety of heights. The Nyelle fabric is soft, stretchy, and durable - getting even softer with each wash. The single back zip pocket is ideal for keys or phone.

Bonus Round: The Tights Makers (Knickers + Tall Socks). A staple among the dedicated runners (oh hi Dr. Lesko and Kara Goucher!), this is the easiest way to turn your knickers into a full on winter outfit. Just add Tall Bird Socks, or any compression style. Easy.

POCKET JOGGER CAPRIS

The Pocket Jogger Capris have quickly become a favorite. It starts with the soft, compressive loveliness of Nyelle, but it's gotta be the pockets. Five pockets! 2 mesh, 2 side, and one big center back zip pocket. It's impossible to have too many things for the Pocket Jogger Capris unless you literally have too many things.

LUX FLOW 3/4 TIGHTS

The Lux Flow Tights, a crowd pleaser since 2017, are back this season in richer colors. But it's the same thick, super-stretchy Heavyweight Lux. The fabric that seems to mold and shape to your body as you put them on. And at that 3/4 length, they're as easy to wear on a run as they are on a road trip.

AERO TIGHTS

A favorite for a reason: high waisted, big pocketed, and smartly detailed. The Aero is the fiercest pair of tights in the business - with pin tuck detailing, an angled hem, and a pocket big enough to fit the phablet. Made in Nyelle which is, as always, soft but durable.

SPANDOS CAPRIS

Made from our Plya Interlock, Spandos styles are both super lightweight and compressive. The high percentage of spandex means they work hard, but the fine gauge knit is truly remarkable, preventing sheerness. And in limited edition prints, they're collectible too.

O-MAZING 3/4 TIGHTS

Rather than adding one, two, three or four pockets - what if the ENTIRE waistband was a pocket? That's the bold proposition of the O-Mazing Tights and they deliver. Stick any of your belongings front, back, or center. Ideal for long runs; accommodates phones, held in place by strong, strategic bar tacks.

TEAM 3/4 TIGHTS

Plya Interlock to the rescue (again). That ideal blend of lightweight but compressive. The Team Tights also bring the team pride, with the branded leg, as well as a convenient side pocket. The 3/4 length is oh so versatile for the many women of many heights!

POCKET JOGGER TIGHTS

Back this season - now in Nyelle! These full length tights are ready for the early mornings, the cold afternoons, the long training runs, and all the things you might need along the way. Five pockets: 2 mesh, 2 side, and one big rear zip pocket.

KALEIDO-GO TIGHTS

Soft, simple, and with elevated details: the Kaleido-go Tights are the leggings that can go from work to run to play. Made in soft-durable Nyelle, with our custom stretch jacquard at the side seams and waistband, they're down for it all.

MAGIC NUMBER TIGHTS

Never go dark! The Magic Number Tights are nighttime magic, lighting up when and where you need to be seen. The body fabric is Power Plya - soft, sleek, and compressive. The stretch mesh panels are a premium reflective knit with outstanding light emission. Run far, run safe!


Fall has started, and we're happy we can help you lay down that base!
