In 2004 we began our quest for non-poofy running shorts. Since its original debut, the Rogas have evolved with lighter fabric, improved waistband, additional pockets, lengths, and prints, but our pursuit to make the best pair of running shorts for women remains unchanged.

Signature Stretch Woven

Our signature Roga Stretch Woven is a performance-optimized fabric with a high level of structure and the ability to manage moisture and quickly dry, while still maintaining a drapey and fluid feel thanks to 2-3x higher level of spandex than most stretch wovens.

awkward fit for me

the high rise felt awkward and did not fit well. I sent back and ordered 2 more pairs of regular Roga shorts! Hoping for more solid colors in the regular roga shorts! I love the regular Roga shorts and give them a 5 star!!


Love these shorts. Good fit, length and solid pockets that don’t make the shorts sag. Highly recommend!

Wow! Just… wow.

So comfortable and light. I’ve received so many compliments on them and can’t praise them enough. More colors please because I already have all the current colors!

Holds my iPhone without a bounce!

The shorts are great. My iPhone fits in the back and does not bounce! I am very glad to be liberated from the fanny pack! They’re a different material than the Roga shorts I have from six years ago, but still very comfortable and no chafing! I like the high waist but it does get a little sweaty on the hottest days, but frankly there aren’t that many in the Pacific Northwest. Overall, I’m very happy with the purchase. I usually go for a looser fit and have a 6 in the old rogas and the 6 in these was the right size as well.
