I recently joined the 21st century and got my first pair of joggers (!), and they're this exact pair. I don't really know what I was thinking by holding off for so long — maybe I figured they would just be glorified sweatpants? — but I'm here to say that they have RUINED all other pants for me from here on out. They're comfy enough to wear as pajamas or around the house when I'm feeling lazy, but cute enough for me to wear out without feeling self-conscious about looking like someone who couldn't be bothered to look presentable. In fact, I even wore them on Thanksgiving last year (a drawstring waist = you can chow down and still be comfortable), and no one was the wiser.
I love that they're a little looser on top and tapered at the bottom, making them look way more elevated than my baggy college sweats, and the material is nice and soft while keeping me warm — I recently flew in them, and let's just say that frigid plane air is no match for these babies. There's not really much else to say about these pants other than, mark my words, I will be getting them in every color. If you're on the fence, hop right on off and get them stat! PS: They come with super-roomy pockets. 🙌
Promising review: "The most comfortable pants EVER. I adore these pants! I was worried they'd be too long on me (most pants usually are), but they fit just right. Love the stretchy waistband and how I can wear them while being cozy at home or run errands while looking semi-human. :)" —Miriam S.
