Run: Inspire Crop II
I have one pair of Run: Inspire crops which I purchased about 4 years ago. The old pair are pretty big now so I purchased a new pair. The difference in quality between the 2 pairs is unbelievable. The new pair was made in Vietnam and had a shiny fabric with a very thin feels to it. They were falling down during my run so I had to hike them up every five minutes - very distracting. They created a muffin top even though they were falling down (I know, it doesn't make sense, but it's true). These pants have a nice print, but they are not really good for anything except maybe walking in them. I've had them for several months and I was hesitant to run in them. Yesterday I thought I would give them a shot and they failed - miserably.

I bought these Run Inspire II crops from the store. I tried them on twice, i hummed and hawed. In the end I walked out of the store $95 poorer and excited to try out these new crops. I like to walk a lot, occasionally jog and play sports as well. I was very disappointed that every time I moved in these crops, they kept falling down on me. (These are NOT too big!). I am usually an 8 or 10 depending on the style. I bought these is an 8 and they are tight (which I like), but they do not stay up on my hips. It is really annoying that they keep sliding down, I am constantly pulling them up (which doesn't look very nice
). Overall, I wouldn't recommend these just cause now I have a brand new pair of $95 crops in my closet just hanging there cause I would prefer to choose other crops or pants instead (ps I LOVE the studio pants and my roll down cotton wunder unders!!!)

Wanted to love but...
When I saw these on the sale rack in camo I just had to have them. I've never had with lulu crops before so I didn't try them on, and boy,do I regret that!
I got home and tried them on before a run and they didn't fit my calf! For a crop that's under "Run" you'd think they'd fit a larger calf due to running! Very disappointed and now I'm out $80.

like many others, i MAY have a slight lululemon addiction. however, i don't buy anything and everything in the store. there are a handful of styles i like that i just buy in every possible color. THIS was my gateway lululemon drug (i have 9 pairs and counting...). they're comfortable but also great for any physical activity from hiking to spinning to bootcamp. trust me, you'll end up lounging around the house in them too. there is a tiny zipper pocket that most may find useless, but i've been able to fit simple things like my credit card, keys (no keychain), and bobby pins/hair ties. if i could only wear one pair of pants for the rest of my life... it would be the run inspire IIs.

I was so excited....
I was so excited when I received my Lululemon bag in the mail. Upon trying these leggings on, however, I immediately regretted buying them. I couldn't see my skin, but my Lululemon underwear outline was extremely visible. After taking them off, I noticed I could see clear as day through them. I have leggings from as far back as 7 years that are still in better shape than these brand new ones. I am 5'1", 110 lbs and wear a size 4, and have the last 5 years.

Like a second skin
These crops are really versatile, and comfortable. I wear them to run in, hot yoga, spinning class, and other group fitness classes. The only thing I would change would be to make the zipper a little lighter. For higher impact activities it tends to bounce around a little.

comfortable but disappointed
I bought these crops at the end of summer to gear up for the west coast fall running season. I noticed right away when I got home that the seams were sticking out but decided not to return them (my nearest store is 3 hours away). Recently I had someone comment on it and I was embarrassed by the quality.
I have countless lululemon crops, pants and shorts and this is the first pair I have boughten and been immediately disappointed in. They are very comfortable but I do not recommend buying these because the quality isn't going to last.

Not the same, sadly
I'm not sure why the quality isn't the same as pants made in 2011 and 2012. They are pulling at the inside bottom hem after only the second wear, on both sides. The same pair, same design, that I purchased on Newbury Street years ago has survived so many washes and looks good as new. Quality control is non existent here, and for the money I'm definitely bummed.

Not Worth It
I bought this pants a few months back not only have they ripped twice in the leg area not even near a seam (I brought them in to the Lulu close to me and said their was nothing they could do because I must have caught them on something), they are also totally see through. If all you want to do is stand up in them they are super comfortable but would not recommend doing anything with them. The sheerest pants I have ever owned you can literally see everything just by slightly bending over. Also, with pattern underwear you can still see everything even while standing up. Total waste of money.

Best Crops Around
I love my run inspires! As a personal trainer I need my crops to be comfortable, moisture wicking and flattering - these are all of those and more. I cannot fault them and I continue to buy pair after pair as I adore them. They do not go see through, they do not pill, have a great higher waist for modesty when training/demonstrating exercises, I do not need to continually pull them up and I feel secure and great in them.
I would recommend these crops without a doubt.
