HOW TO WEAR MEN’S RUNNING TIGHTS

Men’s compression wear includes men’s running tights, pants and shorts. Shorts over leggings or tights alone—wear it however needed to feel confident and supported on your run.

Women have been wearing running tights for years. Today, men in every sport have caught on, taking advantage of the dynamic movement and locked-in feeling compression tights offer. Male or female, Alphaskin adapts to everybody and every body.

Athletes benefit from full freedom of movement, especially when it’s paired with breathable Climachill technology to keep you cool and dry as your workout heats up. If you’re still unsure, test it out and try something new. See for yourself how performance layers squeeze, compact and wrap around your muscles to raise your game.


Should Men Wear Shorts Over Running Tights?

There are no rules about what you should or shouldn’t do. It’s up to you. What matters is that you feel confident in the gym or out on the streets. Part of feeling confident is feeling comfortable, and running tights deliver a secure feel, eliminating friction between fabric and skin. The sweat-wicking material provides long-lasting, dry comfort and the stretchy fabric ensures every movement is dialed in.


Running tights can eliminate distractions during your run. Here are a few tips when approaching this performance trend for me.

  • Wear running shorts over the top of your running tights. Again, it’s whatever helps you feel confident.
  • If modesty is a concern, opt for a scoop hem or longer t-shirt that drapes over the waistline.
  • For reinforced protection and stability, find an appropriate undergarment, perhaps a pair of adidas Climacool Boxer Briefs, as another form of security.
