Every Style Has A Story - The Distance Short

You Say Run ... It Says How far

Fit: The kind of fit you've come to know us for...a slightly lower rise - and less poof! So it sits lean on your hips - but with plenty of room to stride out. The gently arcing side seams flatter your legs while also keeping them safe, with a subtle reflective graphic that doesn't scream construction worker. With a 3" inseam, the Distance has you covered, front and back...not too short, not too long.

Fabric: An ultra light 100% woven polyester body fabric - made specifically for running - means that the Distance Short is super lightweight (without being whispy or clingy), very fast drying, and extremely durable. The high performance, 100% poly knit liner does just what a running short liner needs to do...stays put and keeps you dry and comfortable, from 5K to ultra.

Features: More bells and whistles than a holiday parade (but much sleeker, of course). No less than THREE pockets, two with zip closures. The zip pocket at center rear easily carries 2-3 energy gels, where they won't interfere with your stride. A front side zip pocket holds anything you want close at hand...chapstick, credit card, or lottery ticket. A reflective graphic makes you more visible in the wee dark hours, while a handy draw cord is always at the ready when/if you need it.

Distance Short

Hands downl, the best shorts I've ever run in (i'm 37 and i've been running since 5th grade). In addition to be super comfortable, they never ride up, they have not one, but two zipper pockets, and they come in cool colors. Don't wait to buy these shorts.

Distance Shorts Rock

I'm waiting in line at my most recent race with my friend and we are both wearing these shorts. The two women behind us are pointing at us and chatting quietly. ;I'm thinking they either like our shorts or they think we shouldn't be wearing shorts at all. My first guess was right. They both want to know who makes our shorts and wear to get them. ;They end up borrowing a pen and writing OISELLE down on their hand so they don't forget. This is what I told them - "These are hands down the best shorts I've ever run in (I'm 37 and I've been running since 5th grade). Rarely can a runner find a pair of shorts that both look good, feel good and don't ride up.  Then the 2 zipper pockets shoot them far beyond their competitors. All that with a choice of several colors and a great price. Yes, you need these shorts."
