Welcome to the second edition of Friday Five. Last week, I shared my five favorite ‘long’ running tanks. Today I am sharing my top 5 favorite running shorts. I am a woman, so these are my personal top 5 shorts for women. Sorry guys! Maybe I can get Dustin to do a guest post for the best MEN’S running shorts. 🙂
Five Favorite Running Shorts for Women:
Oiselle Roga Shorts: (retail around $38-$42)
Hands down, my favorite running shorts. I have them in brown, black, navy, orange, gray, and maroon. (And I ordered a few more during Oiselle’s recent appearance on Zulily.) I wear them ALL THE TIME. They are my go-to race short. Here’s my full review, but in summary, they are quick-drying, flattering, non-chafing and have a zippered pocket. My favs. They are available in short or long. Mine are all the shorter version.
Oiselle Distance Shorts Retail at $46
The distance shorts are fantastic because of all the pockets. I wore them for Grandma’s Marathon and fit a ton of GU’s in there. Love them, but they aren’t quite as flattering as the rogas. I have heard people say they give you a bit of a “bubble butt.” I think its just that they are more of a traditional running short vs. the feminine cut of the roga. I have them in black and hot pink and wear them all the time. Full review here.
Patagonia Pro-Strider Shorts
Another pair of fantastic running shorts. Here is my full review. So many pockets- SO many. Flattering fit. No chafing. Quick drying. Love these shorts! Specifically designed for trail running, but they work on pavement too of course, haha!
Lululemon Speed Shorts
These are a Lululemon staple. Everyone I know who has a pair loves their speed sports. VERY flattering fit and they last forever. Worth the cost. So many fun colors. Buy a pair!
Saucony Bullet Speed Tight shorts
Every girl needs a pair of booty shorts right? I actually really like these for racing. No wind resistance. Still a flattering fit. Zippered pocket. This is a strong choice for a good pair of booty shorts! Here is my full review.
Let me know if I missed any of your favorite running shorts!
