Dart Shorts Mini



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!

- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- mid-rise
- interior drawcord
- two side pockets
- 2" inseam (all sizes)

I was skeptical at first with the cut but turns out these are a fantastic mini short that ALSO covers your cheeks in the rear, this includes coverage while in motion mid workout ! The waist comes up high which is fine for someone with a long torso like me! Oiselle hit the mark with these 🎯

The pockets!

These pockets actually work and hold what you need. I often run on call and I am looking for a short that will hold my phone and pager. These do the trick and nothing falls out even during speed work. I highly recommend if you need a short that isn’t super long and has functional pockets. Well done oiselle!


I have tried every pair of square running shorts, either the waist has issues or it’s the bottom part. The Lycra is doubled but it does not increase the skin temp, only gives the product structure and avoids too much detail in front. The side detail is cute and finally real pockets.

New Favorite Racing Bottoms!

I purchased these for a half marathon and they were 👌. I put a SIS gel in each pocket and I had zero issues with them moving around or causing issues. These are some of the bigger gels on the market and I was thrilled with how they just stayed put in the pockets. The waste band comes up higher than other racing bottoms I have, but it felt like it "held me together" and was a bit of extra support, which I liked. I had zero problems of them riding up. I'm 5 foot almost 4 inches and 120lbs and the XS fit perfectly. Two of my marathoning friends have already said they need to get a pair. These will be my go-to racing bottoms for longer races.
