2014 Summer Shorts Showdown

24 May 2014 Summer Shorts Showdown

It’s almost summer, the sun is coming out and the heat is turning up. It’s the perfect time for me to compare some of my favorite shorts of the season! All of the shorts that I compare today have cool innovative features, plenty of storage for the long runs, and are plenty comfortable.

These shorts bridge the price spectrum from crazy expensive to far more affordable. However I will say that if you are looking for the best quality and most durable pairs of shorts, expect to pay a bit more. You won’t regret the investment.

I compare the Salomon Exo S-LAB Short Tights, Exo S-LAB Twin Skin Shorts, Pearl Izumi Flash Shorts, Ultra Shorts, Patagonia Strider Pro (2014) and The North Face Better Than Naked Long Haul shorts. All of these will be shorts that I rotate through all summer long for my long weekend workouts. Did I miss a particular brand or model of shorts? Let me know and I’ll try to add them to my line-up!

    Have you ever tried running in Skechers? With meb’s recent Boston Marathon victory and Skechers just signing Kara Goucher they might be on to something. Before I go and jump on the Skechers band wagon wanted to see if you or anyone you know has seriously tested them out.

    Keep doing what you’re doing,
