At Oiselle, our vision is to help all women feel strong and free through the joy of running. Our mission is to design great product, build the sisterhood, and improve the sport. May we all experience the transformative power of sports and community.
What would a trail bird want? As in someone who doesn't just move their legs forward and backward, but also laterally, vertically, side-stepping, skipping and leaping! These shorts were designed for total freedom. You asked for a good old fashioned split leg short, but with an O twist. Our solution: an integrated semi-split with our signature flyout hem. And an overall relaxed fit for maximum mobility.
Also available in the 6" inseam Long Flyout Shorts.
I am in love with these shorts and they have quickly become my go to running shorts. My other favorite pair are the split leg Rogas from a few years ago so when I saw the mini split styling on these I knew we’d be a match. Sure, the pockets aren’t really functional (it’s truly annoying to run with anything in them) but I’m not going to hate on them. Perhaps a rear centered pocket on the next version.
The original flyout shorts are my all time favorite. They have a back pocket rather than the side/front pocket, which was ideal. I try to like the new style but the pockets cause too many issues, such as riding up, the leg flipping up and under the pocket, the pocket sticking out, etc., which is not ideal when running any long distance runs. Please bring back the original style in these beautiful colors!
After reading the reviews I debated ordering a size down but so glad I didn't. I normally wear a size 4 and size 4 fit me perfectly. I would describe the fit as similar to OG distance but better. The inner liner isn't as baggy and it sits just a little lower (right below my belly button). I do agree with the other reviews that the pockets are pretty non functional. It's too big where if you put keys in there it will bounce around. It's big enough for a iphone XR but who want to run while one side of their shorts is being weighed down by a phone. The only use I can think of for those pockets is maybe a fuel packet or a credit card. Still happy with my purchase because the fabric is light and comfy.
Just echoing all the other comments here. These shorts are great, love the fabric and the fit. The front pockets are annoying... Maybe just have one front pocket and add a back pocket would be a lot more useful.
