Fashion and Fitness Problems: Runner Legs and Jeans
I love wearing jeans. Simple, casual and good looking. Many styles. Easy to wash. Great fit too.
That’s what i thought. Running and working out proved me wrong.
Fitness is a way of life. Fashion trends don’t seem to align
The majority of good looking, quality jeans are not made for people into sports. At least not for runners and weightlifters.
Fashion demands skinny jeans. That means skinny legs and that’s the problem. At least for men.
Lifting 100Kg (220lbs) in squats doesn’t come with skinny legs. Neither does running 10K and half marathons.
Fitness is a way of life. Fashion trends don’t seem to align. That sucks. Big time.
It means spending more time for finding a pair of jeans that fits. Paying extra for customizations and better fit.
