Love the LA’s culture, beaches, sun and the overall LA vibe? Then these tights are a must-have for you! The latest edition of Nike’s Tights Of The Moment is inspired by the colours, culture and beauty of Los Angeles. This is another limited edition so there will be only a few of these available so be quick if you love them as much as I do. This is actually the second pair in a three-tight series that Nike’s released as a part of their N+TC Tour. The first one, released in March, was all about Shanghai and the last one will be dedicated to Stockholm and will be launched in May.
The usual price of these limited editions printed tights is around £90 so yes a bit pricey. But last year, I managed to get my hands on these beauties called Nike Arctic Monarch which I think are still the best Nike has ever produced. However, they’re made from Nike’s lightest layer (similarly to the latest Nike Pro N+TC LA) so I don’t wear them for running or exercise. I love them too much so wear them to work or when I go out lol!
Anyhoo back to the present day and to the Pro N+TC LA model – the Nike Design Director for Women’s Training, Jamie Lee says;
“We wanted to capture the fusion of art, landscape and practical comfort in this tight. We blend the natural and organic with the hard lines of modernism to encapsulate the architecture, beach style and sunshine of LA.”
The design team also engineered the energetic print to highlight the female body in motion. Using 3-D projection technology, designers considered how the tights would look on an active athlete as well as how the athlete would feel while exercising in the tights.
“Tights are a great canvas for expression,” says Lee. “The dynamic print and colour of this tight is designed to move and follow the body in motion.”

I’m a proud owner of one of the limited edition pairs so if you’re thinking of upgrading your running/fitness wardrobe go for a smaller size. I bough size S but I found them quite lose so I wear them as a casual ‘trousers’. I’m normally size S with Nike running tights but the Pro model is a tiny bit different. These limited edition tights are made from lightweight fabric and it is to be worn as the first layer. Nike actually recommends wearing them under your other workout clothing which I find really strange. You want to show them off and not hide them, right?!
Do you own a pair of Nike’s limited edition ‘tight of the moment’ or are you thinking of investing in yourself and getting one (or two). Let me know… 😉
