Compared to previous fabric
I like the microfiber footed tights for ballroom dancing but they are not as durable as those from about 10 years ago. I still have two pairs from then that I still wear and they do not have runs. Then newer tights run much more easily and are not as durable. After one or two wears I have to sew up the runs. I wish the microfiber fabric were more durable as in the past. Overall, these tights are better than most available today.
