Rated 3 out of 5Â by J.D.D. good quality, but too short and lack a drawstring
These were just too short for meâthe bottoms sat right around my knees (size small; I'm 5'6"), rather than at a true 3/4 length. They also lack a drawstring (which I eventually added myself on the full-length pantsâthere are two layers of fabric at the waist, so it's doable). Lots of pockets, though; I'm reasonably happy with the full-length version of these (which I've also reviewed), but the 3/4 length just wasn't going to do it for me. Pay attention to the inseam when ordering, and you might have better luck, although the lack of the drawstring means it helps to order a size down.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Danielle M Fashionable but not as functional
Some of the reviews I read mentioned that they wished these tights had a draw string because they don't stay up and I ignored them anyway because I loved the style but unfortunately they were right. I personally don't think drawstrings are comfortable but it would be very nice to have the waist band a little tighter if not have some sort of a non stick material that other brands have for their workout clothing to stay put. Sending back for a smaller size.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by mrozon Different compared to older model
I'm in love with supernova 3/4 running tights. The old ones that is. I didn't realize the waist construction had changed so I ordered another one, in order to finally have one for each day of the workout week. The old ones held up perfectly on your hips, never slipping down as you moved. These new ones are super pretty by no longer have the seam with the drawstring at the waist. Not that you ever needed the drawstring to make them stay... This one has a wide band around the waist made of a fairly slippery material. They hold in place beautifully while standing still, but give you a muffin top as soon as you start moving, and eventually expose your buttox:( This is def. not due to buying them too big but simply because the waist is constructed as described above. Hope adidas goes back to the old way these tights were designed because I want to focus on my workouts, not pulling up my pants.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Veronika Great quality, shame about the fit
I am training for a half marathon so I purchased these for my long runs. I love the color, the overall look, the quality of the material as well as the technology that keeps me cool & dry. Yet the fit is not great at all. When you try them on in the shop, they feel great but once you run in them, they start riding down. Fortunately, in my case, they take only about 1 mile to "settle" and then it is OK. But I spend the first mile of my run "readjusting" them - arguably something I should not be focusing on during my workout. Once they settle, they are great and I love the feel (or the lack of it). But I can imagine that if I bought a size bigger, I would be in trouble, exposing my body. It is a shame as this would be a great product - and if there was a waist drawstring the issue would be solved. I would not purchase these again unless the fit issue is corrected.

These are my favorite 3/4 length tights for running. Be careful, though, because if you don't order small enough, they'll ride down when you're running because they do not have a drawstring. Otherwise, the fit, the durability, everything - can't be beat.
