Can we wear shorts outside tights when running? What is the effect for sports? Is the person who wears like this really comfortable? From the fashion point of view, is this style in line with the general aesthetic trend?
When did this trend begin? It is also related to basketball. Around 2005, the top NBA basketball stars Vincent Carter, Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson all played in compressed pants and shorts. Especially Yao Ming. Yao Ming joined the NBA as the No.1 champion as early as 2001, and the influence of NBA in China has been very great around 2005. The majority of teenagers began to imitate these superstars.
From the functional point of view, whether the seamless compression pants/tight pants are effective for running can directly return to the effect of compressed pants. Many plump runners often rub their thighs easily, and they are miserable after half marathon. Compression/tight pants will really help these runners, and wrap up the excess fat, which makes them feel a lot sharper.
As for the shorts, besides covering shame, they can prevent wind. In addition, shorts can add a lot of small pockets to facilitate storage.
Is it comfortable to wear this way? Not exactly. The comfort of compressed pants/tight pants varies from person to person. Most of the shorts have underwear lining. However, you can also choose a pair of shorts specially used for the outer cover without underwear lining, which is very breathable, light and comfortable.
Then, from the aesthetic point of view of fashion, the trend of tights with shorts, which is derived from the gym and running, has entered the public fashion field, and visually it will make you look different, which is why this kind of wearing method has become the trend of streets and lanes.
It can be seen that, from the point of view of function, comfort and fashion, the way of compression pants with shorts is not necessarily an unscientific way of sports wear except for poor comfort.
