  1. Lovely shorts, running and yoga

    Ben Sinclair

    I wanted a pair of shorts that I can use for yoga that allow stretch, and also ideal for running.
    These offer exactly what I need in a pair of shorts

    Really nice and comfortable, and at an affordable price for good quality. They always feel fresh so I don’t have to keep washing them after each time I wear them.

  5. Now own 2 pairs! Great shorts

    Tobias.M

    I’ve just received my second pair, I live in New Jersey and practically live shorts outside of the winter months. These are the finest pair of athletic gym shorts I have ever worn. Great material that support and stretch, inner mesh side pocket is a great idea. I purchased the ‘collegiate’ red, my other pair is the grey both are super cool.
    They arrived nicely packaged, didn’t take to long to arrive after I placed my order, no taxes to pay which is nice.
    The anti bacteria fabric is amazing, I wear these more and wash them less just like the advert says and it really works, incrediable.
    You need a store guys over here, you would seriously clean UP.
    Great work big fan of your work!!

    Needed some new shorts so thought I’d try these and I’m not disappointed. Amazing fit, I like in particular the inner short, the fit is great and you can tell the quality of the material and how they’ve been made, very very nice
    Well done Up on making a lovely short.

    I am a 34 waist and bought the large and they fit nice.

  7. Quality shorts, comfiest I own

    Adam Williams

    Rapid delivery, in nice eco friendly packaging.
    Have to say that these shorts are the most comfiest I have worn. I bought the dark red and love the colour. The inside pant pocket is great, going to keep my AirPods which I misplace often in that. Nice little pocket on the back too

    I’m a size 34 waist and bought the large size and they fit amazing. I highly recommend these shorts.

    Jason Reynolds

    Lovely shorts, well made and great colour grey. I like the waist band with a touch of green and I also like the back pocket, comes in handy when I’m out on a run wearing them.

    Great shorts, I wear mine for the gym and running and I might start using for tennis because they offer full stretch, very light weight and love the inside mesh short. The back pocket is great, nicely designed and thought out.

  15. Great hiking shorts 🙌🏼

    Richard. D

    I spend most weekends when possible walking, hiking and these are great. Very comfy, lovely material, 2nd inner short makes these shorts so comfy to wear over a long period. Even after a long weekend of hiking they are still fresh, amazing.

    I am a size 32 waist and purchased the medium size in grey, good fit.

  16. Best shorts

    Simon Ashbury

    As a PT I am very impressed with these shorts, I’m constantly in shorts and these by far are the best shorts I have purchased. For the gym they are amazing, I also play field hockey and worn these and they are great.
    The fit is amazing, the inner mesh short is soft and supportive ( gentlemen no underwear required with these shorts)
    I can’t speak highly enough about these shorts, leaving a nice comment because they deserve one.
    I’m a waist size 30 and purchased the small in black. Really nice. 🙌🏼

  17. Good shorts, very comfy

    Mr Noah Higgins

    I like these shorts, I would have given 5/5 if they had side pockets. But overall great, love the inner pant short, the pocket on the back is a good thing to have, I carry my iPod case in there !
    Love the colour, deep red and the waist band which is nice, the waist band does not dig in.
    Great for the gym and running.

  18. Perfect shorts for running and cardio workouts

    Jamie A.

    These shorts are great, the design, the material used, the inner side pocket and outer pocket with a zip are great ideas. Well thought out. They are great for running in, no chaffing. I really like the soft inner boxer short.
    These are my favourite shorts, I recommend these to anyone.

    I am a waist size 34 and I purchased the L. Good fit.

    Matthew Canning

    Quality shorts, currently my favourite gym shorts, good also to run in them as they are lightweight and comfy, no chaffing, back pocket is useful.

  21. Lovely running shorts

    Adrian Snood

    I purchased these purely for running and they are great. The fit is perfect, and I really appreciate the mesh lining which is well fitting and flexible. There’s an inner pocket on the lining and a secure zip pocket at the rear which is good for an energy gel, keys etc.
    I also like the fact that the waist is elastic and not an annoying drawstring. These really are my go to shorts for running!
