Renata says: I can run a lot further and my muscles feel a lot fresher when I run in these compression shorts. I also used to have pain in my hip and IT band, but once I started running in these shorts, to my surprise, it just went away. I can't say these are a miracle short, but the extra support sure seemed to help me. I can really feel the support and improvement in my hips, quads, and hamstrings. These are really compressive, so if you are on the borderline on the sizing chart, (like stated in the fit note), I would recommend going up.

Very easy to run in

(Casual/ Recreational) September 2, 2013

I've worn these for my last two 5K races. I like that they stay in place and I hardly feel like there is anything on my legs. The compression around the mid-section has taken some getting used to. I did want it for more support, particularly on the quads and around the lower back, but it is definitely a different feeling. I suspect with a few more runs I will become completely comfortable in them.

Now all my running buddies have some!

(Avid Athlete) December 27, 2011

I run on a regular basis and have the long ones for winter and the the short ones for summer. I have two pairs of each as I never want to find them in the wash when it's time for my next run.

Service comments: Given I am in Australia, I am always impressed to with the prompt delivery.

My favorite run shorts

(Competitive Athlete) June 7, 2011

I was looking for compression shorts that did not make my legs look like sausages and I found them in these shorts....no leg grippers, flattering fit, firm support without being too tight. I usually wear a size medium but I have learned that compression garments run small so I ordered large and they fit great. I purchased some CWX shorts a few years ago and the seams were really awful--made the skin on my legs poof out at the panels so I returned them. I am so glad I tried these again because they are much better- the best shorts I own. These shorts are so comfy I forget to take them off after my workouts. They are sturdy and they look very sleek too. They are quite long--the large fits me fine at 5'11', coming just above my knee. Once I wore these, my drawer full of other shorts never gets opened, I wash and wear these day after day. I will buy a second pair.

Pros
  • Stylish
  • SUPPORTIVE
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Running
  • Anytime
