The search for the perfect track pant can feel like a Tolkien-style quest if you’re not looking in the right places.
You want something that fits well and is completely functional, but also something you wouldn’t be embarrassed to wear before and after your workout. In fact, if you’re really lucky, your track pants might even be chic enough to wear as part of an actual outfit.
We’ve chosen 7 of our favourite pairs of track pants can be worn for fitness or for fashion.
Track Pants #1 – Nike Venom French Terry
Nike never messes around when it comes to athletic wear, so of course the Venom French Terry Men’s Pants are top of the line. Nike leaves no stone unturned: pure cotton for a soft feel, zip hems for easy changing over shoes, ribbed cuffs for a snug and comfortable fit, and an inseam gusset with eyelets for enhanced range of motion and ventilation.
Track Pants #2 – Reigning Champ Sweatpant
The philosophy at Reigning Champ is simple: design original fabrics, then handcraft garments for quality and strength. Created in Canada using the brand’s signature mid-weight terry, the Reigning Champ core program track pants feature front slant pockets, a textured 1×1 ribbed crotch gusset, and a contrast natural drawcord at the waist. Choose from black, navy and heather grey.
Track Pants #3 – G Star Sweat Pants Raw Tapered
G Star may be famous for their work with the raw denim jeans, but that’s not all they do well. These G Star sweat pants are made from French terry cotton rich fabric with side slant pockets, ribbed cuffs, a drawstring waistband and a stylishly tapered fit. Most sweat pants shouldn’t leave the locker room, but these look good enough to wear outside the gym.
