Alright, party people; it’s time to talk about the Adidas Condivo Training Pants. Most of the time, I find training pants to be dull and designed with only usability in mind. I mean you can’t really fault designers for that—they are training pants and need to serve their function properly. However, these training pants by Adidas are awesomely stylish while maintaining superb usability. They’ve got a slick design running down the outside of both legs that combines the classic 3-stripes with some fluid curves and arcs flowing from the hip down to the knee before giving way to the stripes. The Adidas logo is stitched on the left thigh of the pants in a fairly large brand mark, but it isn’t obnoxious. As with many Adidas products, the color scheme is the classic black with white stripes. At this point, at least for me, it’s hard to not immediately think “Adidas” when I see black clothing with white stripes. As far as design and style goes, there really isn’t much more to say—it’s a smooth and simple design with a little bit of elegant edge. On the construction side of things, the Condivo pants offer a lot.
First, let me mention the pockets—They are zippered! Booyah. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to have training gear that has open pockets. How am I supposed to take my car keys or cell phone with me when I run? Adidas obviously thought the same way; thanks, guys. The pants are also made with 100% polyester and CLIMACOOL technology that provides heat and moisture management through ventilation, so you’re comfortable all of the time.
The ventilation is no joke, either. Adidas has designed the pants with mesh on the hips as well as the inner thighs, so you get a good amount of circulation to keep you dry in those, ahem, sensitive areas. The price tag on these puppies is $44.99, and you won’t need to replace them anytime soon. They’re a worthwhile investment, even if you only use them to lounge around the house or to go get the mail.
