This Style: Lightweight compression shorts with a wide, flat waistband for a comfortable, no squeeze fit. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor activities.
The Mettle Collection: There's a whole story here... about gold medals, the mettle of one's character, and what it takes to sponsor athletes within Olympic-sized regulations. As for the fabric, it's all Plya Compression (yes, of Spandos fame) - lightweight, stretchy, lovely - like a fabric hug. Just add a premium gold emboss print that is as beautiful as it is long lasting.
- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- all-over gold medal print
- 4" inseam (all sizes)
My 4" inseam strider shorts from 2017 are finally showing signs of wear. I bought a pair of these to see if they'd be a good replacement. It's so hard to find 4-inch inseam (5 feels too long, and 3 is too short). The material is wonderfully soft, and they fit just like the striders. Unfortunately they ride up when I run, and they lack a pocket, even just a small one for my house key. I'm keeping these as a backup until something better comes along.
I was looking for an alternative to my o-mazing strider shorts (which I love but I find the 360 waistband pocket too hot in very warm weather as it's basically a double layer waistband). The mettel shorts are the perfect thing! Simple shorts for any activity. Light and stretchy material, stays in place but isn't overly constrictive. The length is right for me- not too short and not too long. I hope you make other colors so I can order more! I'm 5'8", 125lbs and wear a small.
