I wear these for pole dancing - I have very wide calves, so they fit a bit tight at the top. I'd prefer if they were looser. The acrylic gets my legs really warm- sometimes so warm that I'm too sweaty to grip the pole with my legs when I take them off. Love the color, but they discolor easily when worn without shoes. Great for stretching/ covering feet with for forearm stands when we use just our abs to pull our legs up for the inversion. I really like them despite the few problems I've found with them, so I've ordered two more pairs.
I bought the "turquoise" as it's a beautiful bright color pictured here. Not so much when it arrived, more in the seafoam green/teal, dull turquoise color. The purple is like the one pictured - on the leg, not the color swatch.
