#2357: Shinshaver

People expend a lot of effort in removing hair from their legs. I’m not sure why they do, but I notice that my running tights are effective shavers…at least where the material rubs the legs.

In the left diagram, a section through a runner’s calf is shown.


Ginger hair is left in the concavities of the calf muscle and the shin.

On the right, a pair of running tights is shown with extra, internal padding at these locations.

The natural running motion allows these to do a good job of smoothing anyone’s lower limbs.
