RunnersOne of the biggest trends in the world of men’s gear is spandex. In the last few years singlets have been some of the most popular gear on the market. No longer a piece of clothing wrestlers wear on the mat. It is now worn for athletic and erotic purposes. This love has spurred even more gear.

The latest are runners. You maybe asking what the hell are runners? They go by many names including leggings, running tights and spandex pants. Usually are full length to the ankle but could also be just below the knee. This style has been around since the 80’s and were very popular. In the 90’s and early 2000’s they fell out of style with the public.

In the last few years many runners have taken these up for running in colder weather. Also UnderArmour and Skins have been produced many types of these for sports and working out. These performance pairs are expensive and are designed for serious working out. But that hasn’t stopped the popularity of them. Just check out Tumblr, they have tons of blogs for each brand!

Why is the popularity increasing for these? Guys I think are feeling more confident and want to show off their worked out bodies. This goes for gay and straight. Many of the runners are straight.

Now brands are starting to produce these for fashion. Just as singlets they are not for just athletic activities any more. One of the earliest to produce them has been N2N Bodywear. Just like singlets, runners for them have come in both workout and erotic wear.
