Finding the right running shorts is not always so easy! It’s a bit like find the right running shoe. What works for one runner many not work for another. With that in mind, I am sharing a few of my favorite Summer Running Shorts that pass my sweat test. Because they are different styles, I believe their is something for everyone.
Summer Running Shorts That Pass The Sweat Test
Ordered these on a whim last month and really like them. These 4 inch shorts have built in briefs, a back zip pocket as well as an inner pocket. The reflective piping and mesh ventilation make them a great choice for summer. Drawstring waist. The quality is great and they hold up well to laundry washing. (4 star rating)
These 3.5 inch shorts with a built in brief are one of my new go to’s for walks and runs. The material is lightweight and the waistband is super comfortable ( with a drawstring) hitting right below the belly button. The piping detail is very flattering.I just ordered a second pair. (5 star rating)
These insanely popular 3.5 inch shorts are priced under $25 and come in 20 color combinations. They are lightweight and sweat wicking, and fast drying. Built in brief is comfortable. Only drawback is there are no pockets. I don’t use the pockets on my shorts that often but important to note. (4 stars)
I was hesitant to jump on the bike shorts for running trend this year. However, I have a number of leggings from Belcorva and I love their quality and fit. Have to say, I was immediately in love with how comfortable this compression shorts are. The 5 inch length is nice. They have 4 pockets, a drawstring waist and come in a variety of colors. They fit like a glove (in a good way). (5 stars) One of my new favorites of the season.
A reliable short for me every summer. These 4 inch shorts are the high quality and comfort you expect from Lululemon. Super comfortable waistband and waist pocket. Some of my speed up shorts are 5 years old and they still look new. 7 colors and patterns available.
Deal of the day!
If you like a little bit of a longer short, these Old Navy High Waisted Bermuda Shorts come highly recommended. (The only pair I have not personally tried). They are on a crazy sale for $16 if you can still find them. Also 25% off right now, there are also a few sizes left in this hot red color in the 8 inch seam.
