Celebrities Love…Leather Jogging Pants

Leather Jogging Pants Trend

Thanks to the Kanye West/Jimmy Kimmel feud, leather jogging pants have been in the press a lot lately.

Kanye, aka Yezzy, aka genius, aka god, claims he invented leather jogging pants when he took the idea to Fendi six years ago, which they apparently rejected; since then, however, they have appeared on the runways of Fendi, Alexander Wang, Herve Leger by Max Azria, Isabel Marant, Michael Kors and many more.

The leather jogging pant may sound impractical, as pointed out by Jimmy Kimmel, but no one is using these pants for physical activities.

They are seen more as a sporty and comfortable alternative from jeans or leggings, and often come in the form of a hybrid of sweatpants and harem pants.

With its slouchy, relaxed fit and tapered leg they can be dressed up with a sexy pair of heels or booties, or dressed down with sneakers.

Celebs such as Rihanna, Rita Ora, Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce Knowles, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, Kanye himself, plus many of the trendiest ladies from the fashion pack, including Christine Centenera and Joanna Hillman, have been spotted wearing them.

Yay or nay on Kanye’s invention of the leather jogging pants?

    Why does Kanye always look so mad?

      I just cannot deal with this colossal egomaniac with his attention-whore of a GF. He has taken the word “douche” to another level. I felt baffled why celebrities are still kissing this guy’s ass. He’s gonna become irrelevant in 5 years.

        I agree. He sounds delusional on his interviews. But it’s just laughable at this point. :P

    no more about how kw invented leather jogging pants please. what a joke- he’s a megalomaniac who does not need or deserve the attention he is getting. Furthermore, he and Kim K. should be shunned by artists and other celebrities alike, as well as the paparazzi whom they so vocally despise. Let them try to garner the attention they so obviously crave while at the same time denouncing at every turn. Good riddance. Society will be better off!

    I actually really like this trend, i think they are stylish and edgy. I also despise the hate surrounding Kanye, he is a very intelligent man and while im aware that statements such as ‘godlike’ are very over the top i think he has every reason to be confident in his success, especially after dealing with and overcoming his depression.

    I like leather jogging pants, as I agree and think that they can look good with heels or sneakers.

    The ONLY thing I can definitively credit Kanye with ”inventing” is drama. He’s a master manipulator. He is brilliant b/c, since he is a mediocre musician, he has managed to instead make money off of his antics. When he first came out on the music scene, I thought his music was great and I respected him as an artist, but unfortunately he has let the fame go to his head and spoil every single bit of talent he once had. It’s a shame, I truly miss the good music he once created. Now I see him as nothing more than an arrogant, entitled, delusional hypocrite with a huge chip on his shoulder. If he says he invented leather jogging pants, so be it, but it certainly makes me more unlikely to ever wear a pair.

    Kanye is all kinds of desperate and obnoxious. I can’t abide the man. In fact, nor can I abide these leather pants.
