Shorts and leggings made specifically for running are designed to let you move freely so you can focus on your pace.
One of our favorite running shorts for men is the On Hybrid Short. The Hybrid Short is built from lightweight technical four-way stretch fabric and includes a detachable internal compression short that can be worn on its own.
For women, we love the Brooks Greenlight Capri and On Running Short. The Greenlight is soft and supportive, thanks to Brooks’ DriLayer HorsePower fabric, and it includes no-bounce pockets that are perfect for stashing a few essentials.
The On Running Short are a minimalist option for runners who don’t want to think about their clothes during a long training run. The short’s stretchy and light fabric dries in a flash, and an extended inner short gives you coverage without holding you back. And, like the Greenlight Capri, there’s a pocket to hold keys and a few cards.
