The Best Women's Cropped Trousers by Nike to Shop Now

If you're looking for a pair of comfy women's trousers for lounging or exercise, there's a pair of Nike cropped trousers waiting for you. With a range of lengths, fabrics and styles, these cropped trousers and joggers expose the ankles for a breezy feel on the lower legs, while providing all-day, cosy coverage to keep you warm.

Choose from stretchy leggings, fleece joggers, casual trousers and more—all with a cropped, capri or ⅞-length fit. Find the best cropped trousers, joggers and leggings by Nike in this guide.

The Best Cropped Women's Trousers by Nike

1. Cropped Joggers and Tracksuit Bottoms

The seasons may change, but joggers and tracksuit bottoms are always a good idea—especially when they're available in a range of lengths. If you want that plush, cosy feel of a pair of fleece joggers, even in warm weather, opt for a pair of cropped Nike joggers that contain sweat-wicking Nike Dri-FIT material to keep you cool and dry.

For a cropped pair of joggers made with sustainable materials, check out the Nike Forward tracksuit bottoms. This lightweight, cropped style features the latest material innovation from Nike: ultra-thin, needle-punched layers of fabric that require an average of 75 percent less carbon to create than traditional knit fleece.

Or, if you're looking for something a bit more polished than standard joggers, go for a pair of fleece cropped utility cargo trousers. With a cropped hem and roomy fit, these casual trousers offer a fresh look while still being ultra soft, thanks to the brushed-fleece material.

The cargo pocket on the side features a press-stud closure for secure storage. (Tip: With an adjustable drawcord, pockets and a comfy fit, these make for great travel trousers.)

2. Cropped Leggings

Whether hanging around the house, running errands or stretching into a yoga pose, a pair of Nike cropped leggings is a versatile pick. Nike cropped leggings are designed to fall around the lower calf. For slightly longer (but still cropped) leggings, check out the ⅞-length leggings. Or, for an even shorter length, go for a pair of Nike capri leggings, which tend to fall just below the knee.

Several key leggings styles from Nike come in a cropped version, including Nike Go, Nike One and Nike Epic Luxe.

Nike Go leggings offer a high-waisted fit, firm support and a locked-in feel, so they won't budge during vigorous exercise. Nike One cropped leggings, on the other hand, come in a mid-rise fit and feature a smooth, stretchy fabric built for comfort and versatility.

If you're looking for another style of cropped leggings with a mid-rise fit, sweat-wicking materials and performance features, like perforations on the back of the calf to let cold air in and heat out, check out Nike Epic Luxe.

3. Cropped Yoga Trousers

Mindfully move in cropped women's trousers designed for yoga enthusiasts of all levels. The Nike Yoga collection offers ⅞-length joggers made from a super-soft, brushed-fleece fabric. This length is well suited to yoga practice because the cropped length helps athletes avoid stepping on or tripping over excess fabric.

Or, for a body-hugging style, wear a pair of Nike Yoga cropped or ⅞-length leggings made from Nike Infinalon fabric. This material—found in silhouettes like the Nike Yoga Dri-FIT Luxe leggings—is non-sheer, ultra soft and gently compressive. Plus, it passes the squat test, so you don't have to worry about the leggings becoming see-through as you bend and move.

4. Cropped Training Trousers

For strength training or CrossFit-style workouts at the gym, it's best to find leggings or trousers that are durable and flexible enough to stand up to tough workouts. Look for trousers with a tailored fit that won't feel baggy or bulky, plus stretchy materials that support full range of motion.

For example, the cropped Nike Bliss Victory Trousers are lightweight and breathable, with sweat-wicking technology to keep you dry and cool in sweaty conditions. The mid-rise waist and tapered fit help keep the trousers in place all session long. And the mid-calf length helps provide airflow to the legs as the body heats up.

A similar style is the Nike Bliss Luxe Trousers, which feature Nike Flex fabric in a tapered fit that stretches with the body.
