Sally’s Guide To This Season’s New Shorts


Fantastic running shorts are the genesis of Oiselle. Of course, as you all know, and as I’ve learned from talking with and fitting and getting feedback from hundreds of women – there is no single pair of shorts that works for every runner.

Spring is for shorts. And Spring 19, is our best season to date. It started with updating the collection we’re best known for THE ROGA, and all its variations...

Fitted. Semi-fitted. Loose. Short. Mid-length. Long. Pocketed. Sleek. Printed. If you like shorts, I believe we’ll have one for you. Because we started at the bottoms, and now we’re here. 10+ years of shorts expertise that we’re thrilled to share with you all in the hopes that you find something that works for your runs and races.


Not too short, not too long… just right for just about any kind of run.

ROGA SHORTS / 4" inseam / 2 pockets


New prints, new body and waistband fabrics, new zippered pockets, new colors, and an improved leg shape/opening. The Spring 2019 Roga Collection is by far our most significant update to our most popular shorts. For the full run down, check out our Re-Meet the Roga Blog.

SUMMER ROGAS SHORTS / 4" inseam / 2 pockets


The Summer Rogas are beloved for our lighter weight Summer Roga™ fabric and slightly looser fit. This season, we improved the waistband design, including a new simple center back mesh pocket that holds all the things.

TOOLBELT ROGAS / 4" inseam / multi-sectioned waistband pockets


The Toolbelt Roga… for the Roga lovers who want maximum pocket-age. We got you. The same fit you know and love – but with a new 360 Waistband Pocket system that offers both zippered and mesh pockets for easy access.

FLYOUT SHORTS / 3.5" inseam / 2 pockets


We simplified the Flyout Shorts design this year, moving the handy zippered pockets to the front of the shorts. Made from the same body fabric as the Summer Rogas, these remain a favorite among those who want a classic run-shorts style.



They’re back! These shorts have a strong following. They’re loved for their classic look and their stealth pockets. The 100% poly woven body fabric also brings it, with vibrant color, ready to rock any long run or race.



With our beautiful new prints of 2019: Moody Floral and Clouds, the New Distance Shorts are updated just slightly, with a wider waist opening. Same two zippered pocket convenience for all the miles.

POCKET JOGGER SHORTS / 4.75" inseam / 5 pockets


A fan favorite! Because these shorts feel great, look good, and carry anything you might want to bring on a run. Bring your phone! Drop in your fuel! Stash you lip balm, credit card, or small pocket knife. Better yet, experience the minimal ride-up of the legs. A five pocket shorts design never felt so comfortable.


For those who love to go short and spicy.

MAC ROGAS / 1.75" inseam / 2 pockets


A short short, yes. But not a spandex booty short. The Mac Rogas allow our legs to go completely free, but we get the more comfortable, semi-fitted coverage up top. Named after OG Oiselle believer Sarah “Mac” Robinson who always did… like em short.

Design team note: We’ve observed that the Mac Rogas (or any Rogas for that matter) have become quite popular as swim bottoms. The fabric is durable and can easily hold up in chlorine, the ocean, alpine lakes, you name it. If you’re not a swim suit lover, try em!

FLYTE SHORTS / 2.25" inseam / no pockets


A Oiselle original and back by popular demand! The Flyte Shorts are simplicity in itself. Made from a beautiful, seamless knit, they go on comfortably and then relax and warm up with the run.

Design team note: we took advantage of the seamless knit process to drop stitch the classic flock of birds into the side of the garment. We love how they become more visible as they’re stretched onto the body.


Whether you’re tall, or appreciate the room for additional pockets, wear them for other activities, or just prefer more coverage – we got your long shorts solutions! 

LONG POCKET JOGGER SHORTS / 7" inseam / 5 pockets


Quite literally, a game changer. Not only lusciously long, with a 7” inseam, but also with those five amazing pockets – including one on each leg (lefties rejoice!) – and a secure center zip pocket for a phone, etc. Now available in size 14.

LONG ROGAS / 6" inseam / 3 pockets


A crowd pleaser. A miles runner. A gym-, hike-, and walk-goer. Updated in new colors (Pop!) and prints (Moody Floral, Clouds) for the current season. Available in size 14.



LONG FLYTE SHORTS / 5" inseam / no pockets

The “biker shorts” trend might be hot in 2019, but comfort, coverage, mobility and pockets - are even hotter. The O-Mazings are simple and functional and ready to take on almost any kind of activity. The 360 Waistband design means you can easily carry your items, back or front. Available in size 14.


Simple, easy, no fuss. Same as the regular Flyte Shorts, we took advantage of the seamless knit process to drop stitch the classic flock of birds into the side of the garment. We love how they become more visible as they’re stretched onto the body.

LONG FLYOUT SHORTS / 6" inseam / 4 pockets


All the room to move and run and fly, and that extra length that helps you feel covered at all times. This season’s Long Flyout Shorts are updated slightly, with the two zippered pockets moving to the front.



All dressed up! We’re thrilled to introduce two new dresses in our beautiful seasonal prints, and vivid Douglas Fir… meet The Passport Dress, and The Passport Shirt Dress. Made from our Breeze Woven means it’s easy to wash, dry, wear, travel, work or leisure. Versatility is queen.


Looking for a shorts + skirt combo? We (re)present you with the Bum Wrap. With shorts that are intended to show, lower than the hem line of the skirt, it’s the ideal combo of sporty compression and coverage (built in shorts) with movement and flow (skirt). Includes our new waistband zippered pocket for stashing your goods.

As always, we love giving you all the options you might want. We’re here to answer any questions or receive your feedback! Just drop us a note at [email protected]

Happy shorts running!

Long Roga Colors

PLEASE add the beautiful lilac purple color to the Long Roga Collection. The long Roga's are my go-to short (for this long-legged gal) and I collect a pair in every color you offer up. This purple is the BEST! I know tons of gals would buy it!
