I have done what many runners only dream of! I have found THE perfect pair of running shorts.
With that being said it should be noted that the journey to finding my perfect pair of running shorts was a long and frustrating one but worth every wrong pair of shorts that I tried. And trust me, I have tried many.
Some shorts were too long, too short, uncomfortable in the waist, rode up in the leg, rode up in the waist, didn’t conceal sweat, had too much fabric, didn’t have enough fabric…. I think you get the idea.
And then these shorts entered my life. And everything changed for the better. Well my running changed for the better anyways. I guess I can’t expect a great pair of running shorts to change my WHOLE life.
I am partial to fitted running shorts. I can’t stand lose shorts with all the extra material that has nothing to do but annoy me while I am running. However, the main issue with fitted running shorts it the whole riding up the leg thing that is equally annoying. Who wants to keep pulling the legs of their shorts down during a run? Not this girl!
These shorts have minimal riding in the legs if any and no riding anywhere else for that matter. The waistband is fantastically comfy. I love that I can even fold it over if I wish and it stays put! And in true Nike fashion the material is moisture wicking which is a must in my opinion and helps conceal the inevitable sweat that comes from a good run or workout.
Did I mention that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shorts!!! 🙂
