sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

I plan my weeks around these shorts

It takes me a couple weeks to do laundry, so having the right weight clothing available for the weather is important to me. These are my favorite summer running shorts, bar none. These get the hottest days. These get the (glorious!) days when I can jump in water at the end of my run. I have bought a whopping five pairs of these shorts and could easily imagine buying more. I *love* that they don't have the ultra high waists that are so popular these days. I truly don't understand the trend - I buy running shorts to run and I want to be able to dump heat off my torso when I'm running in July and August!!!!

In the reviews for the 2022 7" pair, there's a comment that the pockets stick out a bit more. I suspect that's because they changed the sizing to be more true-to-size. I've lost a bit of weight in the last few months and am aware that the pockets now flap a little bit, which they didn't before, so anyone buying the same size of the 7" as they did the 6" would indeed have looser pockets. I've kept buying these 6" inseams because that's a better length for me. It sounds like I'd be able to buy an L in the 2022 cut, whereas I definitely needed an XL in this 2021 version.

Thank you for making these! The light fabric and well-thought-out pockets have made me a fan for life!

Best spandex I have owned!

I absolutely love these spandex! I wear them under shorts. The pocket is awesome for a phone or gel. The length is great and they do not ride up! Will definitely buy more pairs!

See through!

The shorts fit fantastic! However, the material is super thin and practically transparent. The print on my underwear was visible through the shorts.
