Sweatpants will always be popular, we know that much. And while 2020 was hard on humans, it was very good to sweatpants. Having spent more time indoors last year than ever before, and with running becoming one of the only reasons for many of us to venture bleary-eyed into the outdoors, this cozy category of legwear has become a permanent fixture for much of the world's population.

Whether it's WFH or working out outside, sweatpants have earned a place at the table of silver linings, and in honor of their service, we're shining a light on one of the all-time best options. The Nike sweatpant has become an MVP of the sportswear giant's main line-up — an irresistible mix of simplicity, comfort, and logo — and there's perhaps never been a better time to invest in a pair.

Maybe you're a shirt-up-top-and-sweatpants-below-the-table kind of guy, or maybe you've embraced the Zoom tracksuit look. Maybe you're a Dri-FIT or Tech Pack fanatic, or maybe you're an Essentials purist. There's a pair of Nike sweatpants for every scenario, so our roundup of the best Nike sweatpants touches all sides of the category. From the original, classic jersey sweatpants through to more recent, technical iterations, here’s ten reasons why the supreme reign of Nike sweatpants is far from over.
