These pants are amazing for any seasoned runner who has or has had issues with runner's knee or IT band problems. The tape that runs inside the pants in placed specifically to areas of the leg that are susceptible to injury. That being said, you must take the time to put these tights on correctly, lining up the inner tape to the proper area. I ran for about 2 miles with the tape around the outer knee a little off and could feel the discomfort in my knee from the tension of the tape. As long as you take the time to line it all up proper, you will love these pants. The compression is enough to lighten post run soreness.
I can not speak for enhanced performance as a result of these pants, unless you consider running better due to a pain free knee as "enhanced performance". But 90% of running is psychological, so if it helps in your mind, I am not one to argue.
One more important note: Even though these are long running tights, they are not what I would consider warm. It's like wearing a second skin, true, but with no insulation. Wrapping up a very cold January, I can tell you I never ran in these outside because the walk from my house to the car was enough to know it would be as warm as running around in my underpants. BUT, this revelation made me even more happy because I will not likely die of heat stroke when I am wearing them during marathons this summer/fall. Which is why I purchased these pants in the first place, for competition, which is usually in 70-95 degree heat.

So I finally pull the trigger and buy those pants, but at my surprise at the checkout, instead of 140$ they were at 98$!!! So I was more than happy with this price, I check back and we can still get them for this price!! I just get one for my husband at 78 box... Anyway, I did my second run yesterday in outdoor at 50/55 degrees... they re fantastic, I was looking for a pants with a very good compression and that keep me warm and they does the job, they are even better cause they have those tape inside the pants that really relieve the pain in your leg and even makes you run longer. I really like it and I wil buy another pair. please try them out, you wont be disappointed. the best one on the market right now.
