why we made this
When it comes to shorts, our needs are simple: we want them to be lightweight and comfortable. We designed this pair out of sweat-wicking fabric with plenty of stretch and cut them generously through the leg and rear. The built-in liner to helps keep our 'stuff' secure when we run.

I got these great shorts about a month ago but today I noticed the stitching around the legs were starting to unravel. I've only put it through the wash how I was told to by one of the store educators a couple times and I noticed the colors starting to fade. Now turning to a faded blackish turning to brownish color which really disappoints me. I really love these shorts but the stitching and the color fading kind of ruined it for me.

inspect/try before you buy
I went to buy a third colour to add to my wardrobe but noticed the fit and finish was off.. asked to try on another pair and another... bought the 4th pair - guys get the consistency right with quality control! I showed the sales guy how each of the three pairs didnt match in fit and quality and he just put everything back out to sell!

Best fit - Curious about the stitching quality
These shorts are fantastic. I'm in half marathon training, and they are the only shorts that I will wear when I run.
The fit is perfect. I'm about 6 ft 2, 215 with a college sports background - The liner accomodates for larger legs, and these shorts literally flow with your body when you run.
Only negative about these shorts - It seems like the stiching is starting to slowly (and I mean slowly) come undone. If I'm dropping $70 on a pair of shorts, I'd love for them to hold up for years. Lots of fraying, which makes me wonder if these are going to unravel at a socially unacceptable time.

These are my husband's go to shorts. He uses them for yoga, running, and boxing. Before he discovered Lulu, he was having a hard time finding shorts with the boxer brief liner. Now his drawer is full of tons of these shorts :)

my new favorite shorts
sup bros, I was pretty much hating on LuLu for a long time and thought only weak chumps and yoga dudes that walk around telling people to "namaste" all the time wore it. My brother got me some pace breakers for chistmas and theyre freakin sick. i got an xl in the camo version and couldnt be happier. They have more of a fitted fit with a convservatively tied drawstring, but dont get in my way when I squat (full range gents), deadlift, RDL, etc., etc. I'm 5'10" 212 and wear a 34 in most pants. LuLu please send me another pair for writing a review!

Great all-purpose shorts
I have used these shorts in everything from hot power yoga to running a half marathon. I also go to Hawaii a couple times a year, and these are great to slip on after getting out of the water and on with your day. My first pair is in white, and I just ordered a second pair in blue/frond (Go Seahawks!) for my upcoming backpacking trip to Bali. I usually wear around a 32-33" waisted jeans with a 30" inseam, and I have a big butt (or that's what my wife tells me).

I have had my shorts for about 6 weeks now and the liner has ripped from every direction! I only run lightly, not a big cardio guy. So there is no wear and tear being created from light jogging. I just don't get how the liner starts to rip especially for taking care of them like the "Educators" say.
TOTALLY NOT WORTH $64! I use my Under Armour shorts.. 1/2 the price and last WAY longer. They don't unravel either. Sorry Lulu

Kinda Good/Kinda Bad
I own these shorts in several colors, and some of the colors have a much better texture to them than others. The solid basic colors (black, white) seem to be made of a higher quality, more comfortable fabric, while other pairs are just plain uncomfortable. Any of the fabric that has a slight pin-striping are rough and not worth owning (I own a pair of bright blue, bright green and dark gray). I don't know why they use different fabrics within the same line of shorts, but there is a big difference in the quality. With that being said, I own multiple pairs in black and absolutely love them. They work well for almost any athletic activity; from wrestling practice to running, yoga and weight lifting.
