They never ride up and they are long enough to avoid my most dreaded running side effect...chaffing.
But they are patently unattractive.
Honestly, who thought it was a good idea to basically put rubber bands on your thighs and then get puffy and sweaty while you work out.
They're not cute but for the past few days I've run on my treadmill (!) in other non-mushroom-leg shorts and they drove me bananas pulling them down every couple of strides. Plus there was evidence of near chafe.
When I marathon trained I wore them on every long run and the marathon itself and I never had a chaffing issue at all.
If it aint broke and it is just unattractive, don't fix it, right?
I may need to add a 3rd pair to my arsenal and just resign myself to ugly yet comfy runs.
These are the ones:
Not cute but VERY functional (no riding up plus they have pockets!)
