Your go-to staple shorts!

These shorts are no-ride, squat proof, mid-waist and the perfect length! They feature our signature RideStop silicon insert. It prevents the shorts from riding up - we don't want anything holding you back!

They feature a mid-rise, reinforced waistband that ensures they stay put while training and is very flattering around your waist! You will never have to worry about anything sliding down or running up!

Editor's Note: "As a runner, these are my absolute go-to. Besides, who does not love a matching set - simply pair these shorts with its matching bra!"

Short exercise tights

A must. Material is thick so you won't have to worry about underwear showing through but it's also very breathable so you don't feel like you are overheating. The legs have grip at the end to keep it from riding up which I haven't seen before in tights and it is absolutely wonderful. Also sits nice and tight without feeling like I am constricted. Won't be able to buy a short tight anywhere else because these are a winner.
