    Must've been a glitch, 'cause it dropped on the Nike app at 10am, but it was stuck on "Coming soon" on the product pages on desktop and that phrase wasn't shown on the Men's/Women's NikeLab pages for those items.

    @rfx45 - I joined the same boat and got the men's pants as well! If you got the sizing right, it should be one size higher than your men's size (Men's S = Women's M).

    Just got them delivered, and will have fit pictures and overall impressions later today for anyone that's interested to know about them!

    So let's discuss... I'll line up the pictures first and will spill everything out underneath each set of pictures. We'll start with the men's woven pants.

    Here is the men's pair in a size Medium in 100% polyester woven material. The pants have two keychain hooks and a magnetic belt that un/buckle similarly to the Air Force 270s. Simple zip-fly with no button, and an extra side pocket is there on the right side. It also has two rear pockets with some nylon hooks on the right side between the front right pocket and the back right pocket. On the very bottom, it has the velcro cuffs with the Matthew M. Williams branding on it. Consider the men's pair the classic lifestyle pants. The women's is a pretty damn different story...

    Here's the women's pair in a size Large in 100% polyester material. Unlike the men's pair, it's a stretch-woven material, and it is far from being a classic casual pair of pants. What the pants similarly have are the hooks, magnetic belt and zip fly (except you can unzip from the top of the waist). Everything else... really different. They have zip-up pockets on both sides with mesh panel pockets. The mesh pocket in front of the hip Swoosh have a cord toggle to secure your stuff! The left knee pocket has the product # (which is dope) and some sort of hole (which I'm not sure what that is for). On the very back, there is another pocket for keys and small items, very similar to the men's and women's Nike Power Speed running tights. The extra tape all around is for aesthetic purposes, I'm sure... Then lastly at the bottom is the big identifier. The cuffs on the lateral sides of the hem split and have an elastic attachment to it.

    Check out the fits below, and then read the paragraph below. My thoughts about 'em are there.

    The men's Medium fits true to size. My waist size is about a 32. It'll feel like it's too tight at the waist when you try to put them on at the very first time, but keep pulling it up and the waist belt will loosen and it'll fit perfectly fine. The fit is a classic straight leg fit. No taper, no extra room above the knees; just your classic straight fit. The women's Large somehow seemingly fits VERY similar. A bit looser above the knees, which is great. It leans more towards Nike's "Standard Fit" for pants rather than the "Tapered Fit." It's definitely not on the "classic look" side of things... more of a trainer/utilitarian look to it. The only problem is the elastic split hems on the bottom, so what I did was rolled and tucked it underneath the pants. Because it's stretch woven, it's definitely easier to move around. I'm not exactly sure why these are just women's pants; it seems more unisex to me. I stacked them up above each other, and they seem to measure up 95% identical to each other.

    I'm pretty sure you guys wanna see a bigger & closer look, so here's the Women's, Men's, and the 3rd picture enlarged. I noticed the cuff of the men's pair underneath the women's pair looks a lot tighter, but that was because I tightened the velcro for the picture of the velcro cuffs above.

    So there you have it! Take a look, and definitely let us all know what you guys think! I honestly thought the women's pair was not gonna work out whatsoever, but damn, I was wrong. As to what I'm gonna do/choose about whether to keep or return, I don't know yet. Ask me that later... :lol:

    Nah, I think the size large is perfect. It's loose enough throughout the legs and the waist is fine. One size smaller and it'll truly resemble the fit of leggings.

    Thanks for the detailed review us3less. Quick question, are the rise on both the same length and how do they fit?

    Sure thing! I think the rise is almost identical. If you look at the pictures with the pants stacked on top of each other, you'll see they line up exactly the same. I'll have to measure the measurements when I get home. It could be either 11" or 14". I've seen measurements on two sites for the men's one, and one said 11" and the other said 14". I'll check back in tonight!

    Pretty sure these are Mainline Alyx shoes, similar to their Runners, the Nike model has a collar
