These are really cute and visually appealing leggings. They are definitely not spats for training but I knew that when buying them. I like to slip into them after open mats since they're stretchy and easy to put on when sweaty. I also wear them for lounging around the house or for at home workouts. They are very thin and stretchy which makes it easy for toes or fingers to get caught in them when training, but they are squat proof so you can wear them for drilling or other lighter/noncontact activities. I'm 5'7"135lbs and bought a small.
