Tall man (6-4) with long legs
Apologies as I am sure this one has probably been done to death but ...
I have a pair of Nike Filament running tights - love them! Just right for warmth fit etc with the exception of leg length.
The problem is that not only am I tall I have long legs - 35 ish inside leg and the end result is that I have not yet found a pair of tights that are long enough without having to fill in the gaps with long socks.
Nike advertise on their retail site that they make various lengths for the shorter and longer person and a size LT (see link) would be fab.
he only problem is that nobody seems to stock them and enquires of Nike via their customer (care?) team elicit the response along the lines of "if you can't see it we don’t have it in stock, but check back as stock is always being updated”.
Well I have been checking back regularly for over 2 years without success.
I cannot be the only tall runner out there so what do other people do - are there any makes that are longer in the leg than Nike.
Hi both, I'm 6'5" tall with 36" inside leg and my Nike tights are a bit short but I found a pair of Adidas tights (model has slipped my mind!) but they were on offer in Sports direct and are quite a bit longer than my Nikes. Failing that, my new More mile compression socks end just under the knee so no one can tell where the tights end and the socks begin! Hahahaha! Don't you love running in the winter!!
