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.

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.

WOW WOW yes.

Love these shorts. They have a lot of perfect - love the pockets, love the way then fit around my waist. I have strong thighs that aren't fat-free by any means, and I love the way these shorts fit at the cuffs. It stays put without being so tight that it causes fat roll looking things and feeling constricting. Paired with the matching groundwork bra, I feel cute, supported, and ready to tackle hard training days. I also have worn them to hang out with friends and casual dinner because they are SO CUTE. Anyway love em.

Love these shorts so much! I’m 5’5” and about 125-130 and the small fit perfectly. I have ordered several pairs since for friends as gifts because I loved my pair soooo much!!

Love these!

Love the features of these shorts. Great length for me - I'm 5'3" - and don't like when my thighs rub so I always prefer the compression type shorts that are a bit longer but not too long. They stay put. Pockets are great for my phone. The addition of a security zipper pocket in the back would make these perfect! Love the fab print that matches the long line bra.

Love it

Wore these for a 25K ultra race recently and they were awesome. No chafing, felt like they were barely there. Easy pockets for tissues and phone. Nice wide waistband. Bonus - ticks can’t crawl up into nooks and crannies! Let’s are not too tight, but would not order too small or else it would probably be too snug for athletic thighs.

Barely there!

I was skeptical about wearing ‘bike shorts’ for running, but these are THE MOST COMFORTABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT AND CUTE running shorts I’ve ever worn. I’ve been running 25 years.
