I’m pretty excited to be writing about this. Recently, I was asked to be apart of an ambassador program with Lolë. I’ve seen their clothing line in stores but have never attempted to try them on as I felt like they were out of my league.
Lolë is based out of Montreal, Quebec (Canada) – woop woop! The company started in 2002 – wow 11 years of pretty awesome clothing…well done! You can learn more about their story here and see who’s been wearing their stuff here!
I was able to choose something and try it out. After going over their entire website (yes, I looked at everything) I decided on a sports bra and shorts – perfect for summer running. However, they were sold out of the colours and my size …. bummer 😦 So, I chose these Run Capri pants; an item I did not currently have in my running collection. I thought I would give them a try to see if I could like running in them. I am either a shorts girl in the summer time or long running pants in the winter. This middle of the leg thing was a new world for me.
Info on Run Capri’s from Lolë: You’ll surge to the head of the pack in these high-styled, high-performance capris. They’re a workout winner in our four-way stretch 2nd Skin Mid fabric with mesh inserts for enhanced breathability. The “L” inset at the waist is a subtle reminder to Live Out Loud Everyday.

I was really struggling with what size to order online because…you see…I’m not an online shopper for clothing. I’ve ALWAYS had bad luck with sizes. I’m not your typical size 4 or 8, heck I’m not even a size 10, though I used to be before kids. Anyway. I was really nervous that they wouldn’t fit.
When they arrived I tried them on…. Oh my…my legs were in love and I had not even taken to the pavement to run in them yet. I now understand why people wear yoga pants all the time. I swear I could live in these things; they can be used for running or yoga etc. Now, after an hour of wearing them around the house…WITH the tag still on as my husband pointed out numerous times, I finally decided that this was the right fit, the right size, the right style for me.
Yeah, I was pretending to run … with the tag on.
What did I like about them?
Well, first off – they are Canadian! Yeah, I’m proud 🙂
Second, they are easy to move in, fit really well and kept me cool on my run. The material is super light and didn’t restrict my running. I also love the little side pocket that I could put my key in, ID card, money or a small snack if I really wanted to.
Third, I was beyond surprised when they arrived in less than 3 days after checking off “ground shipping” and not express post. Bonus!
Four, they provided pre-paid return shipping slips in case I had to return them. That’s kinda nice.
Would I recommend them? Yes.
Am I secretly wearing them as I write this…….. ha ha, YUP!
Please note: Lolë provided me the opportunity to try their product and these are my own opinions, thoughts and experience with Lole.
