June 16th has been deemed National Jogger Pants Day, and it looks like we might have a new favorite holiday!
We’ve come up with a list of 7 reasons to admire the jogger pant for everything it does.
1. They show off your shoes
The growing “sneakerhead” subculture has revered the jogger since it’s popularization in the 2010’s. The pant provides style and fit, while framing the shoe, not hiding it.
2. Versatility is the name of the game
Joggers make the transition from playing your PS3 with your dog to taking your girlfriend out 99% less stressful- throw on a crisp shirt and a pair of shoes and you’re out the door. No need for a full outfit change.
3. The looooooook y’all
Chino’s are classic and denim is a staple, but sometimes you get tired of your usual uniform. Joggers have elevated style that make a simple white t-shirt a statement. (photo cred: DressedToIll)
4. Wearing them kind of makes you feel like an off-duty soccer player
For some reason, the jogger exudes a casual elegance, reminiscent of a European athlete (don’t even pretend it’s not true.)
5. They don’t limit your mobility
We’d all be lying if we denied wearing pants that made it pretty hard to move just because they looked good. Sometimes, sacrifices need to be made in the name of style. But joggers let you look good on the move.
6. Ladies kill it too
While joggers originated as an A1 dude look, girls have really taken this trend by storm. These pants give structure while being unbelievably comfy and they look pretty damn good (I mean, have you seen Duan rocking these things?)
7. You can wear sweatpants. Everywhere.
You’re headed to the gym? Throw on some joggers. The office? Still works. Meeting your girl’s parents? Could be a stretch, but honestly I think you’d get away with it.
So thank you, Jogger Pants.
