4 Reasons Why Men Should Wear Leggings

4 Reasons Why Men Should Wear Leggings

Spring is here! Depending on where you are in the world, it could either still be pretty chilly, or temperatures are finally starting to warm up. For us here in Scottsdale AZ, it’s definitely on the warmer side of the spectrum (a little above 90 degrees Fahrenheit), but we realize that our region of the country is a bit of a special one. With the temperatures being somewhat in-between, it could be hard to find the right apparel for lounging, working out, or to just wear under your clothes. If you’re in this position, we suggest a pair of leggings. Here are some reasons why.



1. They’re INCREDIBLY Comfortable


This is honestly the most important reason, if you ask me. I would wear them everywhere, if I could. They make lounging at home such a blissful experience, and if you decide to wear them out, you’ll be so surprised about how happy you feel because of just how cozy they are.


2. Great for Working Out


Though they cover the whole leg, most leggings are still breathable enough to wear as part of your workout outfit. They’re very form-fitting for your legs, but they do move with your body, so you’ll barely even notice that they’re there. Could wear them under gym shorts for an extra layer (if it's a little cooler, outside) or on their own. 


3. They Can Double as Thermals


Since it’s not blazing hot everywhere, like it is here in Scottsdale, leggings could still be very useful for those who are still in the cold season. When I was living in Flagstaff AZ, which gets a decent amount of snow per year, I was always surprised just how cold your legs can get, even with a pair of jeans over them. Having a pair of leggings would have definitely helped me in situations like that, since they cling to your leg so well, keep your legs insulated, and are so comfortable, you won’t even feel them under your pants!


4. They Can Complete a Casual Outfit


They’d look pretty sleek with a long t-shirt, a pair of your favorite sneakers, and a hoodie. They can act as a sportier skinny jean, keeping you cozy and free as you go about your day. It’s a bit unconventional to have as part of an everyday outfit, when it comes to men’s fashion, but try playing around with it! You may just find out that you want to wear leggings every day.

I am a 55 year old straight married man and I wear leggings and tights every day to work under my jeans or nylon track pants. I enjoy wearing them very much.
I am wearing fitness tights right now.
I think it is odd that there is a problem for guys to wear leggings or tights in public either at the gym or any other public place, unless they have shorts over them or a long shirt. How is it o.k. suddenly when you have a guy wearing tights and hang a guitar around his neck and he becomes a rock star?
Or put a guy in tights in a wrestling match wearing tights and suddenly he is o.k. like that and is now almost worshipped by men and women
Let’s not forget super heroes.
Things that make you go hmmmm.


49 year old straight man who loves wearing leggings. Actually have only purchased women’s up to this point but will try these soon. Comfortable is an understatement!!!! Have not wore in public yet but not afraid to, just don’t want to embarrass my teenagers ! My son likes wearing them around the house when sis isn’t around. I’ll take it a step further and say have been only wearing women’s panties for 3 years now. Could never go back to men’s crappy undies. Being 6’4” 230lbs seriously doubt anyone will say much especially if Mr Glock 10mm is peeking out a little 😂. Enjoy and be your own sexy!!!


Men, wear leggings with confidence, don’t give a damm what other people say or think. I wear ether men’s or women’s tights to run in or the gym, women’s tights are often more comfortable with better waste bands and materials. Wearing shorts over the top look stupid, but do what’s most comfortable for you. It is crazy that people will stereotype you for the clothing you wear, I am a straight mid forties guy and past caring what people think. I have started wearing them more for daily use and loving it. Hopefully more guys can figure out what they are missing out on in the comfort advantage and overcome their phobia or whatever it is.


I agree that leggings are the most comfortable and sexy items to wear, and I especially like the Body Aware styles as they have a pouch built in. I often pair them with a nylon bodysuit when running. I did see a lot more guys out running in tights before the summer heat came, but many spoil the look by wearing baggy shorts over the tights. Guys, come on now, this is NOT a good look!!


I am 64 years old and leggings for the past three years have been my go to choice as everyday wear, running errands and shopping. I wear them round up here in the Pacific Northwest. Snow, rain or sunshine.
