O-MAZING STRIDE SHORT MINI
Small but mighty. The magic of these shorts starts with Plya Compression fabric (popular in our Spandos Capris), known for being both lightweight and supportive. Then we added our 360 waistband pocket, able to carry anything from your phone to keys and fuel. With legs shaped to give you more coverage in the back where you need it, these babies are ready to fly. Bonus: our Birds Everywhere print is yarn dyed, so there is zero white yarn show-through.
- Plya Interlock (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- 360 waistband pocket
- 2.25" inseam
OK, they ride a bit, but I haven't found shorts at this length that don't. I'm a thin woman, but I have thickish thighs and that's just how it is. For me, they just roll up a tad on the inner front thigh and the bottom bum hangs out just a tad. I forgive all of this because they are incredibly comfy for running. I don't feel exposed at all, but I have great range of motion. And the pocket is the very best. All. The. Way. Around. It fit my iPhone 7 and I was able to remove and replace the phone in the pocket during the run with ease. I'm seriously considering getting another pair in a different color for the pocket alone.
After seeing these on social media for a while I decided I had to have them. I was so excited when I got them because I love the feel of the fabric and the fit is amazing. The waistband is my all time favorite out of all the spandex shorts I have tried. My complaint is that they ride up. And when I say ride up, I mean my cheeks are out and I feel more covered wearing buns. I have never had a pair of shorts come up as much as these and I hate that because I love everything else about them. They are my most comfortable Oiselle shorts other than than my Mac rogas, which I love. Maybe if it were a 3" inseam it wouldn't be as bad. I don't want to purchase the longer ones because I don't enjoy running in anything longer than 3 inches, which I learned after trying out the pocket joggers.
Love the shorts and especially the material! Very stretchy and great overall fit. Plus there’s a great waistband pocket to put my keys when I run.
I love short-shorts. In particular, I love Oiselle’s short-shorts. I say this because these shorts made me uncomfortable, and it’s not a length thing. For me, they were too loose in the waist, didn’t offer a lot of back or side coverage, especially when I started moving, and I found the bright red showed just about EVERYTHING, whether I had just stopped moving or had just adjusted them. YIKES. Not sure what I’m going to do with them, I honestly, sorry to be graphic, I feel like you can just about see inside me in these shorts. It’s not great.
It’s a shame because they’re SO soft. I know if I sized up they’d be too big, maybe it’s the fabric? I see people wearing these on Instagram so I know it’s not a problem for everybody but they’re just about unwearable for me personally.
This fabric has such a smooth feel to it! These shorts are perfect for days when you want to move freely with minimal coverage. Just be aware that due to the silky smoothness of the fabric these shorts will slide up.
I'm not typically a 'mini' kind of girl but these shorts are so comfortable. I don't feel like the shorts are too short because of the height of the waistband, and I love the new patterns. The shorts do ride up a little, but once they find their place, they stay put. The new material is SO SOFT.
I get so excited every time my o-mazing stride short minis come out of the wash. It's hard not to feel happy when you see snap! But, whichever color you choose, they're a great staple. The fabric feels very light. They don't ride up. They're my first short shorts with a substantial pocket. For that reason, I can't wait to race in them once racing comes back. In the meantime, they've been an easy run staple.
I am totally OBSESSED with these shorts! I love short shorts and these are the perfect length! And the o-mazing fabric is THE BEST!! So soft, so comfortable! I wear them for all my fast sessions when I need an extra push! And the grounded print is so cute! If you're going to buy one pair of Oiselle spandex, it should be these (then buy them in every color!) :)
