My go-to race shorts

I LOVE these shorts. I don't usually like spandex all that much because they ride up on me, but these stay put and I am LOVING them. Ran my first ultra in them and felt supported/secure the whole time. Also love the back pocket feature on them.

Some of my favorite running/ cross-training shorts

I love these shorts, both aesthetically and function-wise - I ended up buying a second pair in black because I was so happy with them. The back pocket is great for running with my phone, though it's a bit tight and tricky to get it in and out. My only real qualm, and this is something others have mentioned, is that they tend to ride up. Silicone lining would totally help and and I wish they had adding this to the shorts.


I bought these shorts because they looked super cute and I loved the functionality of the big pass-through pocket in the back. Unfortunately, they’re only cute when i’m standing still. They ride up like crazy! They rolled up over my quads and created a very uncomfortable wedgie too. Not cute or comfortable. Such a bummer!

perfect amount of tight-ness

I love these shorts! They are a great length, fitted but not squeezing and don't ride up on me. I wish they came in more colors with patterns because the pattern hides any underwear lines. They are lightweight and breathable. I wore them to run and for a cardio class and was really comfortable.

Fabric is as advertised, which they didn't ride up :

Worn 2x to run (4 mi speed, 8 mi easy). Yes the fabric is breathable, lightweight, and comfortable with a cool print, but wish the legs didn't ride up. Maybe ordering a smaller size would help but I didn't want the waistband to be too snug. Will probably remain in regular rotation but a bit disappointed.
