Gym Crimes: Adidas Select crop leggings

Ever wanted to know what is was like to wear silver foil on your legs?  Well now you can!  Adidas have produced a pair of crop leggings/jogging pants which are made entirely from aluminium foil.

Ok, so they’re not really made of aluminium foil, they’re made of cotton, but it will certainly look like you have encased your legs in foil if you should wear these pants.  Is that something you want to do though readers?  Perhaps you have always had a hankering to be able to see your face in your running attire?

Did we mention that these are £100?  If you have that sort of money to spend on leggings or sportswear, then you can go ahead and buy them at ASOS.

Would you wear these to the gym?

    My eyes are bleeding. They are so ugly… and I’m sure they would visually enlarge whatever lump you might have.

    These would make an awesome superhero costume! Although as anything other they are horrible…

    I’d rather wrap my legs with foil. That’s just how much I hate them.

    Very 70s sci-fi. The really confusing part is the yellow drawstring!

    I agree with Rock Hyrax. The yellow drawstring looks very much like an afterthought, like they ran out of material, or felt they needed to break up the shocking silver somehow.

    As for the ultra-shiny leggings, I might be convinced to wear them for a specific purpose (like Halloween, which everyone is probably thinking, or some kind of sci-fi kitsch photoshoot, which I would totally do if I was good at photos) but they should, I think, be banned from normal life. Mind you, even if it *was* Halloween I think they could be called a dangerous offender if they were worn as pants, rather than under something.

    By Jove, you can wear them at the gym and everyone will be looking at you. I guess it’s encouragement to get into shape.

    I have a little rule which is:

    “If it looks terrible on a professional model, it will look a million times worse on me”

    And surely they’ll get sweaty??
