For anyone who is unfamiliar with the brand, Oiselle is a women’s running apparel company. It was founded by Sally Bergesen (who is also a runner) to specifically meet the unmet needs of female athletes. Over the last few years, notable athletes such as Kara Goucher and Lauren Fleshman have joined the team (otherwise known as the Haute Volee).
Today I finally had the chance to try the Oiselle Meter Tights (yes, because it is still that chilly in Chicago during the early morning hours). The Meter Tights are compression running tights with a cross-over waistband. The first thing I notices when I tried them on was how soft and stretchy they were While they were a little long (at 5’2 I have fairly short legs) they weren’t excessively bunchy at the bottom. They also have a decent sized pocket in the back to fit a key or gel packs. Bonus – the pair I bought are a purple color (which is far more fun than the traditional black).
