When it comes to running, an infinite number of obstacles can come between you and a great workout. While injuries like shin splints and muscle tears rank amongst the most serious, smaller wardrobe-based annoyances can also take you out of the zone. Consider leggings: The wrong pair of tights might leave you feeling more uncomfortable than empowered — that's just what Lululemon considered while creating a legging made for runners.

Having launched just last week, the Lululemon SenseKnit High-Rise Running Tight checks all the boxes necessary in a great jogging tight. It offers the brand's SenseKnit technology, a quick-drying fabric that's remarkable for its breathability and compressive support, plus ahigh-rise waistband with a continuous drawcord to prevent slippage, and even a small envelope pocket to store your keys. While these tights come in three dark shades, rhino gray, charged indigo, and black, reflective details at the ankles aid night runners (although you may want to check out a bright workout top for extra safety). And like so many of Lululemon's iconic leggings, this performance pair is inseam-free and buttery-soft.

The best part? Shoppers say they live up to the hype. "I have worked out in these a handful of times doing high-intensity workouts and a lot of cardio, and they have performed SO well," wrote one customer. Another reviewer said these gave them the "best butt ever" because they "squish your bum in all the right places" and are "hands down the best pants ever." (BTW: You need to check out these butt-lifting leggings celebs can't get enough of.)

To experience these "10/10" running leggings for yourself, head to Lululemon and add a pair to your cart for $168.
