O-MAZING STRIDE SHORT MINI
Small but mighty. The magic of these shorts starts with Plya Compression fabric (popular in our Spandos Capris), known for being both lightweight and supportive. Then we added our 360 waistband pocket, able to carry anything from your phone to keys and fuel. With legs shaped to give you more coverage in the back where you need it, these babies are ready to fly. Bonus: our Birds Everywhere print is yarn dyed, so there is zero white yarn show-through.
- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- 360 waistband pocket
- 2.25" inseam
I have big, big thighs and a generally athletic build. I'm 5'4, 150lbs. I wear short shorts to avoid chafing, which is ALWAYS a problem for me, chalk it up to sensitive skin. I tried these after a friend suggested them and really fell in love. As others mentioned, they do ride up a bit, but once you start to sweat (gross I know, but it's true), they stay in place and are a great short. They are short, you gotta feel comfortable with your tush just nearly showing, but I am a big fan. NO chafing to speak of, which is wonderful, they are my go to long run and track short. I just purchased a second pair in red as they went on sale! In this picture I'm wearing my flip belt at the top, so they are not two-toned. They hit me right below my belly button.
So glad the stride shorts were brought back. Favorite summertime short, they are my most comfortable running shorts. Great for hot conditions as the fabric doesn't get weighed down with sweat.
I love these shorts! I usually wear a 2/XS in O bottoms. I went with the 4 and they are very comfortable, They even fit my huge iphone! I need more!
I was so excited to try these shorts! The pockets are amazing and go all the way around. Perfect for racing and long runs. However, when I tried them on and took a few steps I could already feel them riding up in the back and front. No go for me. I’ll stick with the Kara shorts and Kara xc shorts that stay in place and cover everything
OK, they ride a bit, but I haven't found shorts at this length that don't. I'm a thin woman, but I have thickish thighs and that's just how it is. For me, they just roll up a tad on the inner front thigh and the bottom bum hangs out just a tad. I forgive all of this because they are incredibly comfy for running. I don't feel exposed at all, but I have great range of motion. And the pocket is the very best. All. The. Way. Around. It fit my iPhone 7 and I was able to remove and replace the phone in the pocket during the run with ease. I'm seriously considering getting another pair in a different color for the pocket alone.
After seeing these on social media for a while I decided I had to have them. I was so excited when I got them because I love the feel of the fabric and the fit is amazing. The waistband is my all time favorite out of all the spandex shorts I have tried. My complaint is that they ride up. And when I say ride up, I mean my cheeks are out and I feel more covered wearing buns. I have never had a pair of shorts come up as much as these and I hate that because I love everything else about them. They are my most comfortable Oiselle shorts other than than my Mac rogas, which I love. Maybe if it were a 3" inseam it wouldn't be as bad. I don't want to purchase the longer ones because I don't enjoy running in anything longer than 3 inches, which I learned after trying out the pocket joggers.
Love the shorts and especially the material! Very stretchy and great overall fit. Plus there’s a great waistband pocket to put my keys when I run.
I love short-shorts. In particular, I love Oiselle’s short-shorts. I say this because these shorts made me uncomfortable, and it’s not a length thing. For me, they were too loose in the waist, didn’t offer a lot of back or side coverage, especially when I started moving, and I found the bright red showed just about EVERYTHING, whether I had just stopped moving or had just adjusted them. YIKES. Not sure what I’m going to do with them, I honestly, sorry to be graphic, I feel like you can just about see inside me in these shorts. It’s not great.
It’s a shame because they’re SO soft. I know if I sized up they’d be too big, maybe it’s the fabric? I see people wearing these on Instagram so I know it’s not a problem for everybody but they’re just about unwearable for me personally.
