Now that the weather is warming up, now’s the time to organize and update your wardrobe with summer-friendly essentials. And if you’re a runner, that may mean swapping out your trusty pair of full-length leggings for running shorts.
Regardless of how many kilometres it takes to reach your fitness goals, the perfect pair of running shorts should be made from wicking material that can offer a non-restrictive and breathable feel to help you move freely and better focus on your pace and performance.
Enter Lululemon’s Track That Short 5". Specially designed for running, these shorts are created with swift and sweat-wicking fabric that allows for quick-drying and two-way stretch.
SHOP IT: Lululemon, $58
To avoid the shorts from riding up and slipping down, it also features a medium-rise, comfortable waistband that lies flat and won't dig into your sides.
“Great workout shorts! They are a very light material, and I love the thicker waistband. I got the heather lux multi black, which is a nice heathered grey colour as pictured. I usually wear a size 4 in leggings but was nervous about getting the size 4 in the shorts since I have bigger hips/butt. However, the size 4 fits me nicely, not too snug in the hip as I was worried about. I would recommend these!” reads a five-star review.
Best of all, these shorts offer complete coverage. The longest length of the Track The Short, this pair features a 5" inseam so you can feel comfortable while keeping up with your long strides.
“The length and comfort are the best Lululemon shorts I have ever purchased. It's great to find shorts that I don't feel are too short,” says another five-star reviewer.
“I bought these shorts in the orange colour not expecting to like them very much, I’ve tried other lulu shorts and they just never fit right. However, these are perfect! SO comfortable and lightweight, and they are the perfect length, not too short, but not too long.,” echoes another customer. “You seriously need to buy these!”
The Track That Short 5" are available from sizes 0 to 14 and come in a wide, versatile shade range to best fit your closet. While reviews are greatly positive, shoppers agree that this pair features a pretty small pocket — so if you tend to carry a lot on your run, you might want to pass on these.
