Great Quality!

I love these shorts. The pocket in the back is really convenient for keys and things when I run. I love the comfortable waistband and the breathable fabric.

Best Running Shorts EVER!

I have been wearing the ladies Zoot LTD Run shorts and love them but really wanted to try these 3" Elite run shorts in black. And they are PERFECT! You have to love a "short short" to to appreciate the way these fit and move so well on a run. The inner liner is perfect and the waistband is so comfortable. I'm 5'5, 125 lbs and ordered the small. I can't say enough good things about these. They are my new go to all black workout shorts! Thank you Zoot!

Elite Run Short

Best run short on the market for fit, form, function and fashion. Brief doesn't ride up or pinch or chafe your bikini line. Light-weight, breathable with just the right amount of coverage on the backside. Threw my LuLu Lemon's away years ago when I first tried Zoot shorts and never looked back, I wouldn't wear anything else.

Love these shorts!

These are true to size, super comfortable around the waist, they don’t fall down, and no chaffing around the bikini line. Love these running shorts!

Natalie Kronick (Anaheim, US)
My new favorite runners!

These shorts are SO comfy and functional! Love the back pocket, super soft and moisture wicking material. Love the fitted waistband and they hit perfectly at my bellybutton so no awkward tightness or seams. Great for all my workouts on the track or longer. The pocket in the back is perfect! Love the brief lining as well. Well made and worth every $$!
