TRACK STAR SHORTS
Our first ever two-in-one shorts, this design has a lot of functionality in a very simple package. Instead of a traditional running short liner, the base layer is our Plya Compression (so think booty short), with the semi-fitted layer over the top. The waistband is our classic flat and pocketed design, but the side pockets are the true design breakthrough. The side leg pockets, with the opening on the outside, are attached to the compression bottom underneath, rather than the outerlayer. The upshot: when moving or running, objects in the side pockets stay secure against your leg vs. bouncing around. Power to the pockets!

I love these shorts! First time out I wore them for a 10-mile run and they were super comfortable. No chafing, no discomfort. I had a Picky Bar in one outside pocket and my iPhone in the other. Those pockets are why I wanted these shorts from the minute they came out. I have pocket jogger shorts and tights and love having my phone in the side pocket (for some reason I get chafing if I have it in a back waistband pocket so I appreciate the side pockets and bra pockets). I like that these have the look of a track short but with so much more functionality. Love the blue, classic color!
I got these to be more of a workout/gym piece that provided private-part coverage for crunches and also allowed enough stretch for deep squats. This short is great for that purpose.......but there is no gusseted crotch in the undershorts! Instead there are two big seams that cross right at the lady parts area, so unfortunately I definitely won't be running in these. All other Oiselle tight shorts/pants that I own (flyte, o-mazing, pocket joggers) have a gusseted crotch. But back to the positives, the quality is top notch and the pockets are great. The back pocket can hold a Pixel 3 in a Otterbox. I like the slightly slimmer nature of the shorts. I would buy more of these shorts if the design changed to include a gusseted crotch.
Love love love the side pockets, fits my giant phone perfectly and was the reason I got the shorts. I ordered my same roga size (moody floral) and while the waist band fits the same, the outer short leg opening is significantly smaller (2" smaller per leg) which i was not expecting. As a result, these are much tighter than my rogas in the same size. Super bummed.
