LONG FLYTE SHORTS
These babies have the same wide knit waistband construction as the Flyte Shorts, but with a longer inseam. Designed to be worn as shorts, but easily wearable under other layers, Long Flyte Shorts are the ideal seamless style. Our classic bird flock adds a bit of branding - and bird levity!
- Arque™ Compression (polyester/nylon/elastane)
- seamless compression short
- wicking + anti-odor treatment
- bird + oiselle graphic knit at right side of leg
- 5" inseam (all sizes)
These shorts are the best! They don't ride up, not too short, don't muffin top you, and are cool enough to wear inside on the treadmill. The only thing better would be cool colors but at least they are not pink.
These are the absolute greatest running shorts. The seamless finish mixed with fitted yet not compressing fit around the legs and waistband are what make them the greatest shorts. I have an athletic build and my legs are very strong (thigh gap is not a thing) and have always had issues with chaffing in any shorts for long runs. Come the long flyte and no more chaffing!! I have been running in them for 6+ years now and have 5 pairs. After all the years still with an exceptional fit and feel during my runs. Only issue is I am all the way in Miami, FL and wish there was a vendor close by (please come to Miami!).
I’ve worn these so much I’ve split the inseam, but not before I got in 8 solid years of sweat and smiles - seems like a good investment to me! Love the mid/long length, right balance of give and support, and light enough for midwestern humidity. PS My prepartum and postpartum running body equally appreciated these shorts.. At 5’4 I ordered the medium - can I please have the cool colors that the regular flyte shorts come in?
My legs are strong, but they're the part of me I'm self conscious about so I've always resisted shorts for either fashion or athletic clothes and gone with knee length or longer. These are amazing though!! The fabric and fit works in such a way that it's like wearing nothing, except without any feeling of not being publicly presentable LoL I hope Oiselle tries this fabric in full length leggings - would love some for fall/mild winter days when I like leggings more for the dry scratchy grass coverage on trails than for added warmth!
I love these shorts so much. I’m tall with larger thighs and have trouble finding shorts that won’t make me chafe, and these are my solution. I wear them almost every summer run and they sometimes ride up a bit, but never enough to be annoying, chafe, or make me feel like I need to tug them down. Also, once they find their spot even if they do ride up a bit, they stay put. They are so light and feel so good even when it’s very hot. They only have one flaw — PLEASE give us a pocket! Just one pocket! Don’t change a thing except one, single pocket. I can’t wear these on long runs because there’s nowhere to store a gel or even put a key. Short runs I just tie a key to a shoe and pray it doesn’t fall off. If these had pockets, I would buy a dozen pairs. Twenty pairs. Even so, though, can’t recommend these shorts enough.
I first ordered a pair of these in a medium since I tend to wear a 6 or 8 in Oiselle bottoms. The medium was comfy, but a bit loose in the middle and the legs kept riding up when I tried them out on a run. I recently tried a small and they were perfect for running - no riding up whatsoever. Still comfy with plenty of stretch!
I purchased these because I was looking for a closer fitting pair of shorts. These were too large in the waist but had the right tightness on the thigh. I normally wear a 10 in Oiselle bottoms and ordered a medium in these, but the waist was still too big. I never ran in them and felt like they would slide down just trying them on. Returning them.
I have been looking for a great pair of tight shorts. I love the birds so decided to finally try them when they were on sale. The fabric is not as soft as I expected, but it is comfortable and light and feels cool for summer, however they kept riding up. I'll probably keep them for other activities but they just didn't work for me for running. I'm 5'7" 142lb 39in hips and bought the black size 8. Other reviews said they didn't ride up so maybe it's different on different body shapes. They are cute though so they might be worth a shot if these kind of shorts work good for you.
