Ask any longtime fan of Lululemon what their first purchase from the retailer was, and there’s a good chance that it was a pair of their cult-classic Groove Pants.

What started out as the brand’s most popular silhouette after its launch in 1998 (and likely sparked the entire athleisure movement), the Groove Pant eventually faded in popularity and ended up being discontinued in 2016 — much to the dismay of many shoppers.

If you’re one of those OG Lululemon fans who mourned the loss of the Groove Pants, then you’ll be happy to learn that they’re now back and better than ever.

Recently re-released on the Lululemon website and in stores, the classic Groove Pant is currently available in four colours - black, navy, sage green and a heathered grey.

Featuring an ultra-high rise to stay in place throughout every stretch and turn, the updated Groove Pant Flare Super High-Rise is made with Lululemon’s signature buttery-soft Nulu fabric.

Designed to feel like a second skin, these lightweight pants offer four-way stretch and sweat-wicking performance.

“These Groove Flare pants aren't too thick which makes them good for in-between weather when some of us don't want to feel overly sucked in,” wrote one reviewer. “The fabric feels luxurious on the skin [and] the flared leg isn't too flared compared to the original version of the Groove Pant.”

“These pants are so flattering, comfy, and trendy...and do amazing things for my butt and thighs,” added another. “They are not the same Groove Pants that Lulu sold 10+ years ago — these are updated with a different fabric and have a higher waist, making them a throwback mixed with modern style. I'm glad I managed to buy them before they sell out, I have a feeling bootcut/flare yoga pants are going to be the next big trend.”

For now the pants only come in a single length, so if you’re on the taller or shorter end of the spectrum, you may find that these pants fit differently than you remember.

They are selling quickly though, so if you’re interested in shopping the newly-released Groove Pant Flare Super High-Rise or one of the other three similar flared styles, be sure to shop them before they sell out.
