Run: Inspire Crop II *Block-It Pocket (Reflective)
Why isn't everyone raving about these?!?
Just got these in the mail and I love them! I honestly bought them because I'm a sucker for polka dots, and extra reflective-ness never hurts, right? The dots on the calf are super cute, and the fit is tts for me as far as luxtreme bottoms go. I'm wondering if there were different releases of these inspires? Some older reviews don't seem to fit the description of mine. Mine DO have mesh behind the knees, and they are nice and snug at the bottom calf area.

Love everything about these! Took my usual crop size 6 and they fit tts. The reflective detail makes them different than just plain black and functional at the same time. Would love to see this combo without the mesh behind the knee thanks.

Ok at Best
These crops were too long and they were loose on my calves which makes them appear really awkward on. There was no mesh on the back of the knees either.

Mesh behind knees is missing! Too long
... I think they must have had leftover 2012 laceoflage lace, because it is the same as my draft dodger jacket from last year. Also is the same as the lace crb. I was happy to discover the match, as that is why I got them... But disappointed they advertised them with mesh behind the knees... And there is no mesh! Just Luxstreme! Even the tag says mesh, but sure enough the crops are only one fabric. I will keep them only because they match my other gear... But come on lulu! Look at the model picture closely and you will see the lack of an extra seam where the mesh would be. These are also very long on me. At 5'1 if I could hem them 3" they would work.

Cute but Awkward Fit
These are my first go a Run: Inspire 2 crops and I have to say I'm undecided. I decided to size down because all of my other LLL pants tend to stretch out near the waistband but I didn't realize that this one had a drawstring cord. I love the lace; its a cute and feminine detail to the crops. However, I feel like they are a lot longer and higher waisted than the picture shows.
I'm 5"7' so about average height with normal legs. These crops go over my bellybutton and are awkwardly too loose around the calves. I have to pull the bottom part of the pant up to get the opening to look decently tight and as high as a crop, which is strange because I have larger calves. I can't just pull the pants on in one motion; If I don't adjust the calve portion, it looks like a flared out crop which is not what I was going for.
These crops seem to be opaque and not at all see through. The fabric is smooth and very slick which is great for venting. Overall I like these crops, but IMO the design was a little off and possibly targeted towards those with long legs.
