Giveaway Time: Oiselle Lesley Knicker

This weekend I ran my first sub-2 hour half marathon in St. Louis! While I'm sure you are waiting with baited breath for my race recap, I'm throwing in something even more fun first: a giveaway. I'm thrilled to share one of my favorite running items of all time, the Lesley Knicker, with one lucky reader.

Two items really grabbed my attention when I first heard of Oiselle, and this is one of them. (For those curious, the other is the Distance short.) Although the Lesley Knicker has changed a bit over the past couple of years, I can honestly say the current version is my favorite for two reasons. First, the level of compression is perfect; it doesn't ride up or down, and the fabric hugs my legs just like I want it to without feeling confining. Second, the contrast stitching and/or melange fabric adds flattering long lines to the legs and bum. Add those details to the flat drawstring that never comes untied, mesh at the knees, and the nice size back pocket that fits my phone or gels, and you have a rockin' run capri for chilly temps.

A few more details.

Length: Just below the knee.
Fabric: Stretchy but still compressive.
Drawstring: Flat, ties at front. I prefer this to the elastic-y ones that go all the way through because it doesn't stretch out with wear.
Colors: Graphite, Indigo Melange, Indigo, Black (Squid Ink at Title Nine only.)
Fit: Form-fitting, compressive. I wear the same size as I do in Roga shorts, and the size chart measurements are right on.
Pocket: One back right pocket just under the waistband. It fits my iPhone or gels.
Fun additions: Melange fabric inlays, contrast stitching, mesh at back of knees.

Lesley becomes my go to bottom for basically all workouts from November to February, but I find them great for more than just running too. I wear them for PureBarre, travel, running errands, and even work sometimes when I can get away with it. I love pairing my knickers with the longer Boatneck sweatshirt and a tank for a casual day.

  1. I'd probably get Graphite. I admit, I'm kind of boring when it comes to my running bottoms!

  2. OMG, congratulations on the sub-2 half marathon! I did think you had it in you :) Also - THE LESLEYS COME IN PURPLE?! I have them in blue and am now tempted to get them in 'squid ink' for a friend whose absolute favourite colour is purple.

  7. Congrats on your sub-2 half!
    I would probably go with black or graphite - I'm kind of boring and I like my running bottoms to go with almost all of my flashy tops so I have more outfit variety.

  18. Yep, I'm commenting in order to enter the contest... ;-) I'm a "black only" capri person, since I've seen some, um, unflattering sweat marks on other colors, but the indigo seems to have potential. Hmmm.

  20. Congrats on your sub-2:00!! That's a huge goal of mine!

  23. I have an old pair in indigo bought at a sample sale. They're my go-to tights for when the weather is chilly but not too cold. I adore the squid ink, but probably would get black.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is actually one of the few Oiselle items I have not tried yet. I think I would like to try the black or indigo the most. Black because it matches everything. Congrats on a sub 2 hour. That is a huge goal!

  57. I'd go with Graphite. Is 17 mile drive a good route to run? I'm heading to Monterey in a couple weeks and need to get in a long run. Would love to run that road if it's safe!

    1. We've run along 17 mile drive a couple of times, I love it. We started from the Inn at Spanish Bay (My hubby's aunt is a member) and there are a few miles with space/dirt trail on the side of the road. You just have to be careful crossing the view points because tourists are a little nutty. :) Farther down, we ran on the side of the road and it seemed fine, other people were doing it plus there are cyclists so you likely won't be alone. Do it!
