Saw It On Social: Vuori Joggers
Jul 15, 2020
The whole premise behind Saw It On Social is that you can’t trust social media hype. Any brand can buy their way into a few dozen glowing influencer reviews. You need a review from someone who is picky, who cares about where she puts her money, and who will be brutally honest about whether something is as great as the Instagram ads say.
Usually, that person is me. But when the product is something that I wouldn’t buy for myself, say a pair of $84 joggers, then I need to reach out to my friend group. And that’s when I turn to my friend Theresa — lawyer, former Hill Staffer, Army wife, and mother to the fastest moving, most unstoppable two-year-old boy who you have ever met (and I mean, ever).
This woman knows good athleisure wear because she needs clothes that can go from making afternoon snack to chasing her child through Monterey’s tide pools. Since moving to California for her husband’s job two years ago, Theresa has lived in sleek athleisure wear because that is “the Monterey way.” Think Big Little Lies costumed by Lululemon.
Vuori Joggers bill themselves as “the pants you will never want to take off.” They’re moisture wicking, quick drying, and four-way stretch for maximum comfort whether you’re actually working out or just running after a toddler with something in his mouth. And every review mentions how unbelievably soft and comfortable the fabric is, as do all of the Facebook ads.
So without further ado is Theresa’s reader-requested (#demanded) review of Vuori Joggers.
I kept seeing these pop up on my Instagram and FB but had never heard of them otherwise. After a few months of searching for leggings and joggers that were comfortable but not frumpy, I ordered the Performance Joggers. I figured why not since they have a free returns policy.
The joggers came in the mail on Monday, and I’ve already worn them three times. It’s Thursday.
Vuroi Jogger Pros:
1. Very lightweight and super soft material, perfect for summer or early fall.
2. Unlike other joggers, they don’t stretch out as much and end up giving you saggy butt throughout the day. This is huge, especially if you don’t have much butt to start with.
3. If you pull them up at the bottom for a more cropped look, they stay up without constant readjusting.
Vuroi Jogger Cons:
1. Not crazy about the white drawstring and would prefer it be the same color as the joggers, but I’m willing to live with it.
2. Taller ladies may find them to be too cropped, but at 5’4” they’re great.
3. $84 for a pair of joggers is a bit steep, but still less expensive than most options from Lululemon or Athleta.
I’m a Mom who lives in Monterey, I am the most qualified person alive to review these joggers, and I really like them. With some minor tweaks (see drawstring color), I would live in them every day. When you put them on, it feels like that moment when you curl up on the couch after your child has finally fallen asleep, and there is no better feeling.
Theresa’s review of the Vuori Joggers was so glowing, that she even influenced me. Because when someone who is as
picky choosy as I am says something’s good, I believe her.
In addition to the joggers, Vuori also makes an entire line of athleisure wear for both men and women. Because I’m larger on bottom, I’m scared to death of joggers. I own one pair, they’re great, but they never leave the house. So I thought I might try the Vuori Leggings instead.
I ordered the Daily Legging because it had the drawstring and banded ankle look that I would get from the jogger. It felt a little more relaxed, a little sportier, and like something I didn’t already own. They arrived yesterday. I’m wearing them today. I will probably be wearing them tomorrow too.
Bottom Line: The Vuori brand is your new source for leggings and joggers that cost as much as your work clothes. The fabrics are sumptuous. The cuts are flattering. And I kind of hate you guys for asking me to review a product that I now feel the need to go buy two more of because these pants are not cheap.
As with all Saw It On Social posts, all reviewers purchased the product with their own money. No gifts or discounts were requested or accepted. All opinions are our own, but like, for real.
