2020 ELITE SHORTS
These new shorts are quite fast - and no less functional. Designed to match the Runway Crop in the "Feather" print, they are the same as what's worn by our pros. In addition to a streamlined front, with wide waistband, the shorts also have a large mesh pocket along the back waistband, ideal for gels, fuel, or other light items. These are the shorts...for going fast AND far!

I've been running for over 18 years and these are without a doubt the best shorts I've run in. They are comfortable, breathable and not too thin. They are also a great length without riding up. To echo other reviews, I hope Oiselle makes more pairs in different colors.
Please make these exact shorts in more colors- and would love options for solid colors! Just ran my workout in them this morning in 71 DP/ 80degrees and they were fantastic. They feel amazing, didn't ride up at all, and I love how they feel on my skin. I would love to have more of these! Thanks!! :)
Such great shorts! Just wore them for hot, sweaty 8 mile run. Initially they slipped up a bit but not anything uncomfortable or strange looking (my legs are by no means thin - they are pretty muscular) but after I started to sweat I was able to adjust them back down and they stayed in place perfectly. True to size. I’m a solid size small in Oiselle brand and that is what I ordered in them and fit perfectly. If they had other colors I’d order more! They are super soft too and have a nude liner in them. Get them!!
I absolutely love these shorts. They are very comfortable and a great length. They did not ride up on me at all. I love the large pocket for my key and fuel. I am 5'1" and 105 lbs. and a size XS fit perfectly. Please make these in more colors!
These are fantastic. They have a liner that helps them stay put, and they are the only compression shorts I've ever tried that don't ride up. Please make them in more colors, Oiselle!!
Pros: liner/sturdy feel/good compression, low waistband, comfortable, good sized back pocket, look great/flattering fit, longer length in back/coverage. Con: rides up a bit (my thigh circumference ~21" at greatest diameter- about where the shorts fall). I could use an extra half inch inseam or perhaps some silicone grippers. 5' 120 lbs, I purchased size small as in other Oiselle shorts I seem to be between a medium and small. These are the best tight shorts Oiselle makes. (Kara shorts too short for my taste/comfort. Firecracker waistband too high- uncomfortable and not flattering). Would purchase again and try to size up (once back in stock) which may fix the issue, hopefully still retaining good compression. Definitely would recommend trying these.
I am pretty finicky when it comes to my shorts. These blew my expectations out of the water - they are an amazing length, comfy and best of all they stay put! The pattern and colors on the short are fun too. I've ran 6+ miles in these and I didn't have to adjust or pull at them during the run. I'm typically a size 6 in Oiselle shorts (Mini Strides, Kara shorts, and Mac Rogas), 5'7, 132 lbs, and the medium fits me perfectly. Oiselle, please make more of these!!! They are the best!
If you are a fan of the Kara XC short or the portman short, these are even better. There is enough room in the pocket for your phone and a gel or two and they DO NOT RIDE UP or down or any other way!
