Review: “These are my absolute favorite joggers. I have been collecting them like they’re Pokémon and have them in 6 colors. Obsessed is an understatement. I’m 5’6″ but have very long legs and a shorter torso, and the rise is perfect for me. Other pants made by Athleta have too high a rise, and aren’t long enough in the leg, but not these!! The rise is perfect and doesn’t crush my organs or hit just below my bra, and the pants are long enough where just a little bit of cute ankle shows when I wear sneakers.” – Steph J. (reviewed on
