TRACK STAR SHORTS
Our first ever two-in-one shorts, this design has a lot of functionality in a very simple package. Instead of a traditional running short liner, the base layer is our Plya Compression (so think booty short), with the semi-fitted layer over the top. The waistband is our classic flat and pocketed design, but the side pockets are the true design breakthrough. The side leg pockets, with the opening on the outside, are attached to the compression bottom underneath, rather than the outerlayer. The upshot: when moving or running, objects in the side pockets stay secure against your leg vs. bouncing around. Power to the pockets!

I bought these specifically because I need to run with a phone. However, as comfy as these are, the phone literally weighed them down until I was almost exposing myself to the entire neighborhood! Because the phone goes in the outer pocket and isn't against your body, the weight is very odd. Couple that with the fact that these run larger than other shorts and it was a disaster waiting to happen! I can't win with the sizing with Oiselle which is very frustrating for a company I desperately WANT to like! Also, as others mentioned, these definitely ride up a lot, and the phone pocket is wayyyyy too short for any normal phone. Good thing is I can use these as comfy beach shorts, but as I bought them to run in, it's disappointing.
I'm 5'7" and 142lb. This was my first purchase from Oiselle, so I used the size chart. I would have ordered a 4, but it said I definitely need a 6. When they arrived, I was super excited. They were a bit looser in the waist and legs than some of my other running shorts, but I thought it was just because they were "real running shorts"! I wore them while I worked in the yard, and the side pocked worked great for my phone. However, I went for a couple run, and my phone literally bounced out of my pocket multiple times. I wished I had just gone with my gut and ordered the 4, as they cannot be returned now, and they aren't usable for running with a phone in the side pocket.
Light, quick drying, comfortable, breathable. And the two layer design is great.
My iPhone fits perfectly in the pocket and by some sort of witchcraft just stays put imperceptibly. Fits TTS or perhaps a *touch* large. Back for more.
I purchased another pair of Roga shorts for myself and these shorts for my 16 year old daughter. She put them on yesterday morning and proceeded to muck out 3 horse stalls, go on a long hike in the Rocky Mountains, and finished the evening playing Spike ball & volleyball in our yard. She came into the house saying how much she loved the shorts, and how comfortable and soft the material is against her legs. So, I am back ordering another pair. Thank you Oiselle for designing a great pair of shorts.
LOVE the side pockets.
Great fit! Just ordered a 2nd color.
Fabulous shorts. I’m 5’4” and weigh 128 lbs and a size 4 is perfect. These have a longer brief but they are not 2 in 1 shorts. There are two narrow exterior pockets and a typically sized back zip pocket. The brief is very soft and will not chafe. The length is great, a little shorter than the long Rogas I usually use but they aren’t super short. Very comfortable!
I wear the pocket joggers and love all the pockets. But they are hot in summer and I wish for something lighter. Thought these would be the best of both worlds - but the side pockets are too small for a 6" phone. Disappointed. Length was good but they seemed to run big. Please try to perfect this Oiselle.
These are the first pair of Oiselle shorts that I've purchased and I'm so glad I gave them a try. I immediately fell in love with the quality and fabric right out of the package and I love love love the red color - it's vibrant and beautiful! These shorts are super comfortable and flattering. For reference, I'm an apple shape, 5'5, 115 pounds and the XS/Size 2 fit perfectly. I always have trouble with shorts fitting too baggy around the bum and super big around the leg openings, but these are PERFECT!!! I have a tiny bit of a muffin top around the waist, but nothing too noticeable. I just wouldn't wear a super fitted top with these. I wore these out on a long run and they were comfy and perfect in every way. Oh and did mentioned the pockets?! LOVE!!! Can't wait to ry another style of Oiselle shorts and I hope to have the same good luck!!!
