TRACK STAR SHORTS
Our first ever two-in-one shorts, this design has a lot of functionality in a very simple package. Instead of a traditional running short liner, the base layer is our Plya Compression (so think booty short), with the semi-fitted layer over the top. The waistband is our classic flat and pocketed design, but the side pockets are the true design breakthrough. The side leg pockets, with the opening on the outside, are attached to the compression bottom underneath, rather than the outerlayer. The upshot: when moving or running, objects in the side pockets stay secure against your leg vs. bouncing around. Power to the pockets!

Great fit! Just ordered a 2nd color.
Fabulous shorts. I’m 5’4” and weigh 128 lbs and a size 4 is perfect. These have a longer brief but they are not 2 in 1 shorts. There are two narrow exterior pockets and a typically sized back zip pocket. The brief is very soft and will not chafe. The length is great, a little shorter than the long Rogas I usually use but they aren’t super short. Very comfortable!
I wear the pocket joggers and love all the pockets. But they are hot in summer and I wish for something lighter. Thought these would be the best of both worlds - but the side pockets are too small for a 6" phone. Disappointed. Length was good but they seemed to run big. Please try to perfect this Oiselle.
These are the first pair of Oiselle shorts that I've purchased and I'm so glad I gave them a try. I immediately fell in love with the quality and fabric right out of the package and I love love love the red color - it's vibrant and beautiful! These shorts are super comfortable and flattering. For reference, I'm an apple shape, 5'5, 115 pounds and the XS/Size 2 fit perfectly. I always have trouble with shorts fitting too baggy around the bum and super big around the leg openings, but these are PERFECT!!! I have a tiny bit of a muffin top around the waist, but nothing too noticeable. I just wouldn't wear a super fitted top with these. I wore these out on a long run and they were comfy and perfect in every way. Oh and did mentioned the pockets?! LOVE!!! Can't wait to ry another style of Oiselle shorts and I hope to have the same good luck!!!
I have to be honest, I got these shorts to just wear for soccer mom spectating. I decided to try them out for a run and I LOVE THEM!! So comfy. So so comfy! Another win from Oiselle!
I knew when I saw these shorts I had to have them! I like running in non-compression shorty shorts, but I also often run with my phone. The pocket holds my phone comfortably with minimal bounce.
I just went for my first run in these shorts, and they're ALMOST perfect.
First, the positives: the material is excellent and sweat-wicking, the waistband is incredibly comfortable, the compression shorts underneath are comfy, and the pocket situation is pretty outstanding. The shorts are super cute (even my partner remarked about how cute they were, and he never notices these things). The length is nice, as well.
Now, the constructive feedback: These run significantly larger than other Oiselle products (full disclosure: this is my first pair of Oiselle shorts, so this is based off my experience with tights and crops). I'm 5'4", 130lbs, and consistently a size 6 in Oiselle. I had to return my size 6 Track Star shorts and get a size 4, and even those are slightly large. Second, the side pockets need a zipper or something at the top — my phone immediately bounced out less than .5 miles into my run when using the side pocket. No worries, though, because the back zippered pocket fits an iPhone XS, but something to be aware of! My last thing would be that I wish the compressive shorts underneath were half an inch longer. They ride up a bit for me.
I love these, though, and can't wait for the next version of them!
The Track Star shorts are really two-in-one. And that's both a great thing and a not-so-great thing for me. I really love the pockets. I always really love pockets, and these are no different. They're all that and a bag of chips. I prefer to have my phone in the waistband pocket, and the two side pockets have plenty of room for a key, a card, a chapstick, a mini-purely . . . All good. But they do feel like I am wearing two pairs of shorts. The liner layer is the same thickness as a pair of booty shorts, and then you have the outer layer. I live in the South, so that's going to be too much for much of shorts season, at least for running. But these are a terrific option for cools shorts weather or for women whop want the pockets of the Pocket Joggers but prefer the Roga style.
