So many fans of the Flyte Short! And it's understandable... they stretch and move like no other, they're simple - with no bulk, and they last like a long run. Which is why we brought them back! The only change is adding our classic bird flock to the side of the leg in a very subtle drop stitch knit (integrated in the garment). Flyte is always ready for flight!
- Arque™ Compression (polyester/nylon/elastane)

I got these shorts and I was a little unsure how they’d work but they REALLY WORK for my body. I’m 5’5” and like 120 and I got a small. They stay in place. They are more tight in the thighs than the waist but I feel like that’s why the work.
I bought these in a size Medium, the crotch area was baggy and the shorts felt a little loose. They were pretty comfortable and I don't think they would ride up. Decided to try to the Small size instead and they fit perfect! But this time, the smalls definitely ride up on me. My thighs touch, I am 125 lbs and 5'2 with narrow hips. I seem to fit somewhere awkwardly between a small and medium in these shorts. I still love the print and look on them. Great for shorter distances, but I'm not sure I'd like them for long runs.
I'm really happy with these - I even purchased a second pair. I love the comfortable, wide waistband and the smooth, seamless design. This season's branding and cute birdies are a bonus! I'm a size 2/xs in Oiselle bottoms and found these to be just a bit on the larger side if anything. There's just a bit extra fabric and it's not quite as "tight" or compressive as I was expecting, but not a problem - they are super comfortable for running and yoga! When I want to feel more "hugged in" - I go with my Spandos Shorts!
these shorts are amazingly comfortable..the fabric is soft and there are no sticky parts like other compression shorts have to keep them to your legs (which never work anyway). i am 5' 8", 135-140# and went with a medium so my thighs didn't look too squeezed. they fit great, though the waist band is ever so slightly big.
I ordered a pair in black and navy on sale as I am transitioning over to more compression shorts and I LOVE these. I wore the black pair in a S on an hour long trail run and I think I prefer these over my normal trail shorts! The shorts did ride up a little, but nothing to noticeable or anything that made me feel like I was showing people the goods. I'm glad these are still on sale so I can order more!
I am typically a small or 4-6 in other shorts (distance shorts, Lori shorts, stride shorts) but I ordered the small in these and found them to be saggy and baggy. I was expecting a stay-put compressive fit but the legs rolled up, and the waist/crotch sagged like a pair of cotton leggings. I do wish they were longer to keep the legs in place, and with a more compressive fit in the waist to keep them from falling down.
Finally a pair of shorts that don't ride up! They are a nice length, too. I also love that there is no tag to irritate my skin. I will definitely be ordering more!
I bought these on a whim after trying the long flyte shorts. At 5'11" this is basically almost a pair of undies. YET. When it is 85 degrees and 90% humidity and you've got training to do, self consciousness basically flies out the window. I put these on for my run today and didn't overheat. They wick sweat really well. Yes, they're booty shorts if you're tall. Yes, my cellulite was hanging out for the world to see, No, I didn't really care. :) Not when a garment can help me feel like I'm not gonna heat stroke! I will keep reaching for these all summer long. Like everyone else I do wish they had a waistband pocket, le sigh....
