2020 ELITE SHORTS
These new shorts are quite fast - and no less functional. Designed to match the Runway Crop in the "Feather" print, they are the same as what's worn by our pros. In addition to a streamlined front, with wide waistband, the shorts also have a large mesh pocket along the back waistband, ideal for gels, fuel, or other light items. These are the shorts...for going fast AND far!

These are fantastic. They have a liner that helps them stay put, and they are the only compression shorts I've ever tried that don't ride up. Please make them in more colors, Oiselle!!
Pros: liner/sturdy feel/good compression, low waistband, comfortable, good sized back pocket, look great/flattering fit, longer length in back/coverage. Con: rides up a bit (my thigh circumference ~21" at greatest diameter- about where the shorts fall). I could use an extra half inch inseam or perhaps some silicone grippers. 5' 120 lbs, I purchased size small as in other Oiselle shorts I seem to be between a medium and small. These are the best tight shorts Oiselle makes. (Kara shorts too short for my taste/comfort. Firecracker waistband too high- uncomfortable and not flattering). Would purchase again and try to size up (once back in stock) which may fix the issue, hopefully still retaining good compression. Definitely would recommend trying these.
I am pretty finicky when it comes to my shorts. These blew my expectations out of the water - they are an amazing length, comfy and best of all they stay put! The pattern and colors on the short are fun too. I've ran 6+ miles in these and I didn't have to adjust or pull at them during the run. I'm typically a size 6 in Oiselle shorts (Mini Strides, Kara shorts, and Mac Rogas), 5'7, 132 lbs, and the medium fits me perfectly. Oiselle, please make more of these!!! They are the best!
If you are a fan of the Kara XC short or the portman short, these are even better. There is enough room in the pocket for your phone and a gel or two and they DO NOT RIDE UP or down or any other way!
I feel fast AF when I wear these! I’m not usually a short shorts kinda person but these feel great and stayed put. The pocket on the back is the stuff of dreams. I’m going to need that pocket on all my running pants now. They are also slightly longer in the back so your butt doesn’t hang out and they stay put. The shorts are also lined so they feel a little more substantial while not being hot.
If you like spandex shorts, you have to try these. They stay put like nobody's business, and they have a really great liner that makes them feel a bit more substantial. The back pocket holds a phone, a gel, a chapstick, and a key fob (one of those big ones). I wish they were a little less expensive, but one thing I know about O gear is that it hold up really well. These will be a staple for me in warm weather running.
