Run: Inspire Crop II *All Full-On Luxtreme
Not my usual Inspires
As much as I love how cool the snake print is, these are not Inspires. The material is totally different, very smooth which is likely why they slide down at every downward dog, and forget about running. They definitely don't fit like Inspires either, I am a size 6 and had to get the 8. I'll keep them for the print...and for home workouts only.

I tried these in in store to confirm my size and I fell in love with the snakeskin print! It's gorgeous! Make it into more pants, tops, bras, eveything!
I have 2 other run inspire crops that I love, but I haven't purchased a luxtreme pair. I can't atest to the 'falling down' the other reviews have noted, but I have had that problem in other lulu pants.
I plan on adding these to my Christmas list!

Favorite Running Pants
These are my favorite running pants, almost all year round. I do a lot of trail running in wet Vancouver, the material dries fast so Im not freezing on the way home & Ive had a couple wipe outs that couldn't tear or even snag it. The only thing that would improve these is if Lululemon started considering how huge phones and car keys/fobs can be now when designing pockets.

I have three pairs of these crops.. One is a size 8 and two are size 10 so I ordered the pink flower ones two days ago size 10... They are ridiculously tight... Thinking they feel tighter than my size 8.. Not impressed. Why did the fit change? My last pair I bought one month ago.... What's going on lulu??? And I did not gain any weight in the last 4 weeks lol

Not good for exercise
Bought these from the outlet in Niagara, not impressed. They look good...but do NOT stay up at all. I wore them to yoga and every 5 minutes I had to adjust them. I bought a size smaller than I probably would have normally because of feeling like they'd fall...didn't help. I think having them be a little higher rise would have solved some of this issue as they are pretty low. My first Lulu-lemon purchase and pretty disappointed..spent $70 on these and for what?? I can't wear them to the gym really. Not rushing out to buy anything else from here any time soon.

I ordered both an 8 and a 10 in these crops so I would be able to choose the right size. I am 5'4", 150 lbs. After reading the previous review, I made sure to jog around a bit in my apartment to make sure the pants would stay up! With the 10, I definitely had trouble with them falling down. The 8's are a lot more compressive in the legs and are a bit tight in the waist, but that's what you need for pants to stay put when you run! Overall, I think the styling is very nice and I like the smooth feel of the fabric. However, I am not a big fan of the gusset on these, I think it starts too far back and could lead to cameltoe.

never running in these "run" crops again
I was so excited to get my new run inspire crops in the mail and go on my normal morning run in them. However, during my run all i could think about was how bad i wanted to take them off. They were horrible. All i could focus on was how many times a minute I was pulling them up due to them sliding down constantly. These are supposed to be RUN crops. Made for RUNNING. If i wanted to buy a pair of cheaply made crops that were going to slide down during my whole run then i would purchase elsewhere. But i choose to be a loyal lulu customer and own countless pairs of all different variations of crops. The only thing that i liked about these is the opaqueness. Other then that I would be surprised if i ever wear these $86 crops again. It is so sad to see that as the prices go up the quality of the products continue to go down. Sadly, i will have to start looking for new athletic brands that will hold true to their quality. Please bring back the good old lulu quality that we all miss.
