MEET THE 60 YEAR OLDS WHO PIONEERED MEN'S LEGGINGS
They say that life is a young man’s game. Well, nobody told these guys. They know what it takes the rest of us a lifetime to figure out: that experience beats enthusiasm, and that fashion is an attitude and age is no barrier!

FOR THESE GUYS, MEGGINGS AREN'T JUST FASHION – THEY'RE A LIFESTYLE.
So what makes these guys special? For starters, the pioneers don't play by the rules.
Everywhere you look someone is trying to tell you how to think and dress and act. You have the choice to conform, or you can blaze your own trail.
These O.G.'s (AKA Original Gangsters) are the men who helped pioneer male leggings and compression tights for yoga, running, cycling, fashion, fitness and street style. As the old saying goes: "Young men know the rules, O.G.'s know the exceptions."

MALE LEGGING PIONEERS WIN AT LIFE.
These guys are the most interesting dudes in any room. Check out what makes our 50, 60, and 70-year old Kapow customers tick:
“I’m a 50 year old Intelligence Officer with a passion for yoga, who geeks out on Dr. Who."
“I’m a mid-50s fitness buff rock’n’roller, I worked hard for my legs and I like to show ‘em off.”
“I’m a 51 year old Englishman, pastor, and born again runner.”

THE PIONEERS OF MEN'S TIGHTS FORGE THEIR OWN PATHS.
"I am a 55 year old man from New Hampshire who has always loved leggings, but was made to feel it was not accepted for men to wear them... This is especially true in the USA, where men are really uptight and society stereotypes people who are different. As I've gotten older, I've come to realize I don't care what other people think – I want to be me."
"I started running a year ago and was looking for bright running tights for men, but was only able to find bright colors in women's styles... finding Kapow has been a game-changer.”

PIONEERS DON'T GET BITTER, THEY GET BETTER. HAND OVER THE COMPRESSION LEGGINGS!
“I’m a 60 year old bingo caller from Las Vegas who loves music and life! I'm looking to get into better shape.”
"I’m a 71 year old male trying for a new lease on life!"

MEGGINGS PIONEERS ARE BRAVE AND UNBORING.
“I'm a 57 year old truck driver who loves leggings as a way to separate my work life and get away from the dull and boring way mens clothing has been created. I love the fit and feel and comfort leggings provide. Why look like everyone else? That's what the fashion industry wants."
