What Are Ponte Pants?

 

Ponte pants are one-part leggings, one-part skinny jeans, and one-part trousers. They’re made from a double-knit process that helps to combine comfort, style and makes them more durable than leggings.

Essentially, they feel like leggings but often look like real pants. You might also hear them being referred to as ponte trousers or ponte leggings. What we do know is they’re a great pick for travel!
