Nike Running Skapri: Product Review

I'd been eyeing the Nike Running Skapris for quite a while, thinking the combination of a running skirt with some capri tights would flatter me. And I like to be flattered!

Nike Ladies Skapri: cheaper on Wiggle

But the price tag for the flattery of the Nike Ladies Skapri, would set me back about 72 dollars, and that was too high a price to pay. But then I found webshop Wiggle.co.uk, where they cost only 37 dollars!

So I threw them in my virtual basket, and ran to the virtual check out. A few days later my Nike Ladies Skapri arrived, and of course I put them on immediately. They felt lovely, and really comfortable. And there was this handy little pocket at the back, which closed with a zipper, where you can put your key and stuff.

Nike Ladies Skapri: running either too hot or too cold!

So all was well, but every time I went out for a run, I didn't wear my skapri! And this is why: Nike Ladies Skapri look best when worn with a little tank top, or a short sleeved shirt. But every time the weather was warm enough for bare arms, the tights were too hot. And if the tights weren't too hot, I had to wear a long sleeved top, and didn't look so good.

Yes I admit it: I'm a woman. And I'm vain.

Cut off them tights!

But then I had this brilliant idea: why not cut off those pesky tights?! After all, I had nothing to lose. So I did, and it's a big succes! I wear my new little running skirt all the time.

To sum up

The combination of a running skirt with capri tights doesn't do it for me. I prefer to only wear a running skirt during Summer, and during Winter I prefer only tights.

Do you have any experience with the combo: running skirt and tights?
What do you think of running skapris?

  1. Unfortunately I have no experience to add.
    I wanted to buy some of these because I thought they were so cute, but I happened to have my stupid teenaged son with me at the time and he said they were lame.
    I didn't buy them and now I am glad i didn't because you make a very good point about too hot/too cold!

    I'll stick with capri's and skirt seperately!
    (I really hope google allows me to comment today.)

  2. Thanks for commenting Heather! Teenage sons can be merciless when it comes to clothes. But in this case, his advice may actually have been right!
