Running shorts are a key part of your run apparel basics. If you’re running indoors, or in the summer (or even in the cold, if you’re feeling particularly hardy), then you’ll likely need a pair of running shorts. They can be compression or a lighter, more traditional design.
For running shorts, comfort is key. There are various options depending on what sort of running you are doing. For every day training, it’s a question of personal preference, but there are also certain running shorts designed to minimise chafing for the longer distance runner, or more lightweight version race shorts.
Your choice is largely based on your personal preference for longer or shorter, lighter or tighter and training or racing based shorts. The customer reviews are also very useful for understanding sizing, which can differ between brands.
