Best Running Leggings

Are you looking for the best running leggings? Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise, making running leggings an essential in any wardrobe whether you prefer to run the streets, hit the gym or if you  simply enjoy the activewear look.

Finding the right pair of running leggings can be a tough task. There are so many choices when it comes to style and price range, so how do you know which is the best pair of running leggings for you? Don't worry, in this post, we're going to talk you through everything you need to look out for when purchasing your next pair of running leggings.

What to Look For When Buying Running Leggings


Most leggings made for exercise use polyester, as it's a water-resistant and sweatproof material, which is an essential for activewear. Elastane is another material that is essential for activewear, to ensure that your leggings have enough stretch in them - there's nothing worse than a stiff pair of leggings that restrict your movements.

Squat Proof

This is an important factor for many of us, this applies for working out but maybe your warm-up exercises include some form of squatting. Squat proof leggings ensure you can exercise without the dreaded fear of your leggings being see-through.


Leggings usually come in two different lengths; full length or 3/4 length. Although it may seem obvious, 3/4 really do make the perfect spring/summer legging as they're effective at keeping you cool.


A black pair of running leggings are just essential in everyone's wardrobe as they go with everything, grey is another great alternative. Patterned leggings are also great, just try to find a pair that includes colour of a top or hoodie you have in your collection as mix and matching your activewear is key.
