Shop men’s leggings at Altitude SportsLeggings are one of the most versatile clothing items on the market. Whether you’re using them for a workout or for layering, everyone needs a pair or two in their closet (okay, or six or seven).
Men’s tights are incredibly soft and can be worn indoors or outdoors. One of the best things about tights is the full range of movement that they allow you when you wear them. This makes men’s tights ideal for high-movement exercises like running, or for exercises that require a great degree of flexibility (like yoga).
How to choose the perfect pair of tightsThere are a few details to look for when choosing a pair of men’s tights. Ultimately, the choice that you make should depend on the kind of sport that you do (or workouts that you do) but there are other things to keep in mind so you can choose leggings that are the most comfortable for you.
For one thing, you’ll want to look for leggings that are breathable. Although it might be tempting to show off all the hard work you’ve done at the gym, tights shouldn’t actually be restrictive. They should provide your body with room to breathe. Don’t get them too loose, though, or you’ll risk your tights coming off during... a workout which will also restrict your movements (this is especially true if you’re using your tights to run or for weightlifting and squatting).
When looking for tights, keep in mind the kind of temperatures that you’re going to be wearing them in. For cold-weather activities, try to find tights that reach down to your ankles so that you don’t leave your skin exposed to the elements. Seek out shorter tights for hot weather activities.
Plus, you don’t want to overlook style. Even if it seems frivolous, choosing the right colour and shape for you will help you build up confidence and will in turn improve your performance—sometimes all it takes is the right gear to push us to the full extent of our abilities.
