O-MAZING STRIDE SHORTS
Made from our Plya Compression (popularized in Spandos Capris), this go-to compression short is made of interlock fabric, known for being lightweight, compressive, and very soft/smooth. Its unique knit structure also prevents sheerness. The Birds Everywhere print is yarn dyed so there is no white yarn show-through. Our 360 waistband pocket goes all the way around, and is ample enough to hold everything from keys to fuel to a phone.
- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- 360 waistband pocket
- 4.75" inseam (all sizes)
These were a complete fail for me. Rode right up on first stride, couldn’t even make it out of my driveway! I was surprised to hear others did not have this problem. They were beautiful and I wanted them to work! Sadly I had to return.
I have the original version of these and just bought a new pair! They are my favorite for running and really most types of workouts. The fit is comfortable and enough coverage and the pockets are clutch. They also don’t ride up or chafe!
I LOVE these shorts. I am 5'4", ~125# and bought size 4 which fit well (I maybe could have gotten size 2, would be curious to compare). The length is perfect - no chaffing. Great cut/design. They ride up a little after a few miles, but that just takes a quick fix, doesn't bother me bc otherwise they are so comfortable to run in. The waistband is little weird, and could maybe use a redesign, but I can see the intended benefit of functionality. The waistband is a full 360 degree pocket - I can cram my iphone 11 into it and it stays in place, though if you have a phone that's any bigger it wouldn't fit (and a small clip inside the pocket to secure keys would be great). A down side of the way the waistband is designed is that there really isn't a secure waistband, the fabric just folds at the top, so it's a bit floppy/unfinished looking. The only other thing I would love to see added is a gusset at the crotch. Really wish they came in some more solid colors!
I'll admit it - I was skeptical at first. And then I wore them on a really hot morning run and they quickly became one of my new favorite shorts!
I can fit my iPhone 11 in the waistband pocket (along the back seam), plus a gel, a car key, and my ID. They don't fall down but the legs do ride up a little bit at the start of a run, but once they've reached an ideal spot on my thighs they stay put. I describe the texture as being like a swimsuit. The more I wear them, the more I enjoy them.
I bought my usual size 2 and they fit perfectly. I'm about 5'1" and weigh about 110.
Comfortable. Fit great. What more can I say?! For reference, I bought a size 4, and I’m 5’2” and weigh 125.
These shorts are fabulous! Did 14 miles in them and they did wonderfully! The surrounding pocket is perfect for gel! I am 5'2", 115 pounds and got a size 4. These fit perfectly!
I wanted to love these. I am an athlete and have former gymnast and sprinter quads that I’ve also spent a fair amount of time cycling. I really wanted to love these. I put them on and they looked good. I ran .03 miles and had to stop and fix them. I thought maybe once I warmed up and was a little sweaty they would stay in place so I took them on a mile warm up. I went back to my house changed into a pair of Roga shorts and kept on running. I think if they had some type of grip or around a leg openings that would help. Also the seam in the middle of the booty was quite uncomfortable. Super bummed.
Was obviously sucked in by the fun snap/empire color and decided to take a chance on them; I'm a size 8 in the pocket joggers, but ordered these in a 10 because I was skeptical that they would accommodate my thighs. They snuck up a little bit during my first two miles, but then settled (and stayed put) right around a 3"ish length for my last four, which was fine with me. I'm only 5'2", and I was never worried that they would creep enough for my butt to start hanging out. Ideally, they wouldn't move at all, but what can you do? Also, the material definitely gets sweaty, and the light color shows it. I probably wouldn't put anything heavier than my car key or a gel in the pocket, but that could be because the waist is a little loose for me.
