This is part of a series called “Giftworthy,” my ideas for gifts based on things I use and love. Every other day in December (through the 25th), I’ll be posting a new item, and I’ll finagle a short-term discount on that item from the great company who makes it. Of course they are happy to play along, which is part of why they are so great. Feel free to check out the others in the series. The discount codes are good through December 25th. Thanks! Enjoy!

KG Tights, in honor of The Goucher herself

The black on grey is my favorite, but I love these too.

The black on grey is my favorite, but I love these too. I like where they hit the ankle.

These tights are the ultimate performer, inspired by Kara Goucher. It’s especially fun writing this post right now because she just KILLED IT at the Rock n Roll San Antonio Half Marathon, taking 1st, with our teammate Sasha Gollish 2nd! She’s catching some momentum leading into the Olympic Marathon Trials, and it’s making me really itchy to start running again (I’m cleared for jogging on Wednesday).

Anyway, back to the tights. Zip ankles, sweet feather print on one side that brings back some NY Fashion Week vibes, and a wide waistband with a drawstring…they’re perfect. These are more expensive than most, but they are a premier garment and are made to last. The fabric does what you want it to, and stays where you want it to, and is a good choice for a pretty wide variety of cooler temperatures. The black on charcoal is my favorite.

Great Gift for:

  • Girlfriend who appreciates beautiful design.
  • Running partner with a power booty.
  • A friend who has trouble with tights staying up on the waist.
  • The racer in your life (zip ankles are clutch for stripping them off over shoes before the start.
  • You
