They are joggers, not sweatpants!
I feel like I have to explain myself to someone different almost every day. The sweatpants of past years are not the same as the ones we are wearing in 2015. Nowadays, the latest from brands like Nike and Jordan feature pants that are more styled with tighter fits. They don’t feature the open bottoms and definitely aren’t as baggy. (I wasn’t the only cat back in the day who was rocking everything super, super, super big.) Even as more streetwear enthusiasts adopt the look, you still people clinging to the old look. (Who remembers Jerry Seinfeld talking about those of us who gave up by rocking sweats?)
Well, it’s about time those people woke up. Jeans might scream acceptance for everyone from your elementary school brother to your 90-year-old granfather…but joggers speak to a specific audience. And right now, the Jordan Brand is dropping a new collection of full-body Tech Fleece swag, starting with joggers and finishing it off with fleece hoodies sporting full-length zippers. Available at Champs Sports (the hoodies are there for preorder but won’t be available until late October), this look will turn your IG into pure flames.
Jogger sweatpants are an important part of any streetwear collection, and that rings true no matter what time of year. More sneakerheads are using the look to stunt on Instagram, especially now that the khaki jogger has run its course and is falling out of favor among the younger generation.
For the sneakerheads out there this season, make sure you’re going out and completing the look with some Tech Fleece gear from the Jordan Brand. The pants go perfectly with any Air Jordan retro and the hoodies add a unique flavor to any look. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll be all set to style on Instagram.
