Dart Shorts Mini


Color: Black

Love short shorts? Interested in competition buns/brief? These are like a cross between the two. What makes them special is our Power Plya® fabric, combined with a unique cut. The rear, and rear leg, are shaped specifically to cover and hold. The front leg gives you room to move. The sides include small pockets, big enough for energy gels, or other small items (not advised for a phone). These are the ultimate go-fast-take-chances bottoms, ready to move and fly!


• Mid-rise
• Interior drawcord
• Two side pockets
• 2" inseam (all sizes)

Comfortable and stay in place!

Over the course of my 4-month training for my first marathon, I didn't think I'd ever come across shorts to stand up to 26.2 miles and I was losing hope. I got the dart mini shorts a week before the race and immediately liked them more than any other variety of shorts I had tried up to that point. On race day, they were comfortable/not constrictive at all, they didn't ride up, the legs didn't roll up nor were they too tight, I appreciated the small pockets on the sides, and they looked good! The waistband is a little loose on me, but it's very easily adjusted, and I don't think I even needed to tie it tighter on race day.

Great summer shorts!

My favorite for hot days - no chafe!

They’re ok.

They are tight in the thighs but loose up in the waist. They don’t fold up on the thigh though which is good. They have small pockets, it barely fits my iPhone.

Simply the best out there

I have this model with Nike, Adidas and two other running companies and these are simply the best. The side pocket is invisible until needed, the cut on the front to back as sexy as it gets. Just wish there were more colors, I don’t wear this cut to be humble.
