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
Yes, these shorts are mini (as said in the product title) so expect them to be well, .. mini!! It basically covers your cheeks only, and not much more, but I don't feel too bad about them since the waist is high. The shorts are soft and light, it feels like nothing is there are you can run FREE! Also spandex shorts with lots of pocket space is an obvious win. It I love these shorts so much, I immediately bough a second pair after receiving my first pair.
These are super soft with a nice waistband pocket, but no way will I be able to wear these in public (unless I'm a high school volleyball player wearing mini spandex shorts). Looking at the other reviewers' photos, they look short but stylish. I like shorter shorts, but these just barely cover my cheeks and that's it. Maybe if I were petite and super thin they'd be okay. Love the pattern though!
Short shorts with great pocket space. I like how the waist band isn't too tight. Really flattering and soft fabric.
I have big, big thighs and a generally athletic build. I'm 5'4, 150lbs. I wear short shorts to avoid chafing, which is ALWAYS a problem for me, chalk it up to sensitive skin. I tried these after a friend suggested them and really fell in love. As others mentioned, they do ride up a bit, but once you start to sweat (gross I know, but it's true), they stay in place and are a great short. They are short, you gotta feel comfortable with your tush just nearly showing, but I am a big fan. NO chafing to speak of, which is wonderful, they are my go to long run and track short. I just purchased a second pair in red as they went on sale! In this picture I'm wearing my flip belt at the top, so they are not two-toned. They hit me right below my belly button.
So glad the stride shorts were brought back. Favorite summertime short, they are my most comfortable running shorts. Great for hot conditions as the fabric doesn't get weighed down with sweat.
I love these shorts! I usually wear a 2/XS in O bottoms. I went with the 4 and they are very comfortable, They even fit my huge iphone! I need more!
I was so excited to try these shorts! The pockets are amazing and go all the way around. Perfect for racing and long runs. However, when I tried them on and took a few steps I could already feel them riding up in the back and front. No go for me. I’ll stick with the Kara shorts and Kara xc shorts that stay in place and cover everything
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.
