Do any males on here run in only lycra shorts? Thinking about switching to lycra shorts but wanted other peoples opinions on them beforehand.

Thanks

Run in nothing else, Skins compression, shorts and full length tights

Might have to make the jump then! Is there any difference between compression shorts (like those that footballers wear under their shorts) and lycra 'running' shorts?

Not certain as i have never played football, compression products such as those made by Skins, 2XU, UnderArmour and others are widely used within running as they are supposed to help with fatigue and recovery.
I use Skins simply for the comfort they provide me above all, my favorite products are the Skins A400 range.

The current tight/lycra shorts i have for football are these -

Just a question is it okay to wear lycra tights around at home?I just don't want my flatmates to think i'm gay

Why would you care if your flatmates thought you were gay?  Is there something wrong with being gay?

None of my gay mates wear lycra tights around the house.

Do you think they might be closet heteros?

P.S. Jordan: Some lycra shorts are designed to be worn under other shorts and definitely have an 'underwear-y' look about them. I'd say those ones you've posted a pic of look like they fall into that category. Apart from that, outerwear lycra shorts are fine for guys. Most big events I've been at the guys seem to be split pretty much 50/50 between baggy and lycra.

They DO look pretty 'gay', to be fair..

What does 'gay' look like?

And my question stands - is there something wrong with being gay?

Since when has sportswear determined sexuality?

Back on track......

I've got some very old Ron Hill lycra shorts (the ones with a wide white stripe down the side) and they have the advantage of having a panel in the front with a lining behind the front panel.  The panel means there isn't a seam running right down the front (ouch!) and the lining keeps that chilly wind out!

Trouble is they are on their last legs and I can't find anything like them.  All lycra shorts seem to have a front seam and no lining.  Can anyone suggest a similar replacement for my old Ron Hills?

I wear lycra shorts all the time. When strolling into work in them one morning after running in, a female colleague suggested that anyone who wears lycra must be "a fucking pervert". Hasn't stopped me though, wear the Nike pro core ones all the time, not worried about the compression but they are comfortable. Sometimes wear a cheap pair of baggies over them to keep Gels and keys etc.

Hey Jordan

So with Wilke on this.. I'm not gay and wear tight Lycra shorts to run, Ive over grown people's sad comments and stupid remarks, I see them as pointless, I wear skins and Nike to run, each to their own I'd say. Go for it, and enjoy what you do to in life
