    What kind of tights do you like to wear for practice?

    Over the boot?
    In the boot?
    To the ankle?
    To the heel?
    Stirrup?

    I like to wear mine either in the boot over to the heel.

    I wear in the boot or over the boot tights. But over the boot tights tear easily so I get the Mondor ones that have more cotton in them. They're a little thicker.

    over the boot or under the boot, depending on my mood.

    Just normal tights. I meant in the boot. I think my brain is dead from my polisci exam today.

    Usually what I do is wear normal tights, then a pair of OTB tights over that. Though I guess it's sort of silly since I can just wear some thin socks with my skates...

    It depends. If I'm practicing in a skirt or dress, I wear overboots, as I would for testing. If I'm wearing warm-up pants or tights (I have an old pair of riding breeches I use sometimes) I wear a pair of footed tights under them. (For that matter, I double-layer the footed under the overboot when I use those. I STILL freeze, but it adds a little warmth.)

    The Mondor overboots don't run as easily? Hm. Maybe I'll get those--I have Capezio overboots right now and they're starting to shred.

    I normally wear footed tights (supermarket 40 or 60 denier black ones are fine for practice) and lycra boot-covers, but this week I've been wearing a very heavy pair of stirrup tights and knitted boot covers, it's been so cold! Today I wore sweatpants , which I often do if we aren't going to work at our lifts.

    For competition, always over-the-boot tights, which I do keep for best (they're expensive!).

    Mrs. Redboots,

    I couldn't get your journal link to work for some reason.

    Whoops, sorry about that. Should be fixed now.

    Incidentally, if any British skaters are lurking, I see that Lidl are planning to sell 100-denier tights in a variety of colour or sizes next week for about £2.99 a pair. I plan to stock up.

    Brinababy--based off your post, I got the thicker Mondors for my new pair (I'm death on all tights--I LOOK at them and they run) for my test next week. We'll see how they work. (I just hope they're warm--I get so cold at that rink...)
