Product Review: Lululemon Speed Short

I love these shorts. Simply put, I don’t want to wear other shorts and am dreading the fact that tights season is here and I won’t get to wear them until Spring. I started with the snowy owl print, then added two more pair after washing the owl print ones 4 days in a row. I don’t know which pair I’ll wear for VCM, but I can almost guarantee you that it will be this short.

Why do I love these so much? First, they are insanely comfortable. The waistband is lower and wider, so it doesn’t ride, sag or bunch. The fabric wicks better than any short I’ve ever worn and even after an 80 degree, 95% humidity run in Brooklyn this summer, I didn’t have wet shorts. The pockets hold keys or gels without bouncing and I haven’t had any trouble with chafing.

The downside? They’re short. Like really short. It doesn’t bother me, but I’ve opted not to wear them to certain running occasions. They’re expensive. I definitely hesitated before buying two more pair, but then realized that if they get me out the door, they are worth it.

    I love Speed Shorts too! I’ve been wearing them over my running tights this Fall and Winter and like having the extra support and coverage on longer runs. I’ve gotten some for less on Ebay, by the way. Totally new ones too, worth checking out!
