On my quest to find the perfect patent/vinyl pant I have tried Spanx, Commando, Lisa Marie Fernandez, Helmut Lang, Rag & Bone but sent them all back. But I love these Heroine Sport leggings - the fit is superb (no camel toe; instant butt lift), and the texture is just right, not too shiny and not noisy like some other brands. They are very comfortable, and whenever I wear them I get comments. I like to dress them down with a silk kimono top and sneakers for everyday. For me they are the perfect crossover of kinky and cute.
