The debate over whether leggings are are acceptable pants (looking at you, airlines) may have been heated at times, but the results are in: Yes, your stretchy, cozy second skin totally counts as pants. The ubiquitous-as-avocado-toast activewear item is designed for your non-constrictive comfort anywhere, anytime—even at work.

The popularity of leggings tasked stalwart denim brands with what seemed liked something totally impossible: making jeans as comfortable as your yoga pants.

Athleta flipped the script by launching its own line of denim, which no, are not jeggings, leggings, or leggings that look like jeans. Rather, the bottoms are 100 percent real denim but feature the same stretch and support you’d get from your favorite pair of Athleta black leggings. The secret sauce is brand’s all-star fabric innovation, Sculptek technology.

You could definitely sit cross-legged without a problem, probably do dead lifts while wearing them, or even paradise pose without busting a seam.

The product, currently landing rave customer reviews, is available in a classic denim blue and in a light gray wash, and both are practical dupes of say, a pair of beloved J Brand or Rag & bone skinnies. However, these differ from the norm because they allow you to actually move around the way you could (and would!) in yoga pants. You could definitely sit cross-legged without a problem, probably do dead lifts while wearing them, or even paradise pose without busting a seam.

At $98 (way less than some cult-fave jeans), it’s no wonder why customers are already begging in the reviews section that Athleta roll out more denim styles and cuts with the Sculptek fabric. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be working out in jeans someday soon.

Pair your jeans with a denim jacket for a Canadian Tuxedo, or consider a metallic bomber.
