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.

The best athletic shorts I’ve ever bought

I absolutely LOVE these shorts! I bought them in Batik purple and got the matching cap and long bra. I am an avid kayaker and these are my go-to shorts for kayaking. They are comfortable, move easily with me without feeling tight or restrictive, quick drying, and they don’t ride up my legs due to the non-slip silicone lining in the leg seams. I will be buying more in other colors, they’re well worth the money for me.

Perfect length, cozy fabric, great pockets! Love the grips at the thigh. I’m 5”2 and an athletic build size 4 and I went with the medium and the fit is awesome.

Love these for running

This is my second pair! They have become my favorite for running. I can fit card and keys in the back pocket, phone and collapsible water water in the two side pockets. I am 5’10”, 145 lbs- I usually wear a small to medium- I prefer the medium in the shorts and a small in the pants for the groundwork pace style.

Great Features!

I recently wore these for a 30K trail run & they were perfect! Deep pockets for gels, the slot in the back to securely hold my shirt when the temperature warmed & they stayed put. These shorts don’t rise as you run!! I have 3 pair, maybe I need more!🤔😆

Half marathon approved

Love these!! So lightweight! I'd love to try in a 5" length maybe. The pockets flare/stretch a bit to the side, but everything stayed securely the entire run!! I recommended to several friends :)

Great solution for thicker thighs!

These are fantastic, storage, no thigh rub, no inching up and no rolling. Had tried the shorter version and had troubles probably due to thick thighs. These were a win for the girl with curves!

Go for it

I'm training for my first marathon and these are exactly what I was looking for. They aren't too tight and they stay in place. The pockets are deep and held my mid-run fuel truly without any bounce.

Great shorts!

These are destined to be my new favorite running shorts - they feel lightweight and smooth, the pockets are good and useful (found myself on my run today wishing for that pass-through), and they stay in place! I have some issues with the groundwork tights riding down, but no such trouble with the short version!

Love these shorts. My first pair of tight shorts, but I love the groundwork bra so much I had to try these and they will be my go to for long runs! They don't ride up and stay in place

Finally!

Perfection. Stays put without squeezing the heck out of me, which can get pretty uncomfortable on long runs. These are the perfect blend of compression and nothingness. So comfy. Pockets are also awesome.
