Surge Short 7"
Not bad but nothing special
The shorts did the job but for the price they have a lot better in their lineup. I wish this had pockets so you have a place to put your music player/phone. The area to stuff your shirt is cool and all but I found I didn't really use it to like it enough. I love the repetition shorts for the reason that they are so versatile. The liner in them have pockets below the outer pockets so you can put your phone in it and not have it bounce around. Its compressed onto your leg. I wouldn't buy these again just because they don't have anything on other basic running shorts.

Definitely not boxer brief liners, that language is very misleading. It's a brief. They're great shorts but the brief liner with extended usage can cause maaaajor chaffing problems. Had to cut mine out. Fine for short periods but go linerless or true boxer briefs if you don't want to walk funny after a long run.

Description is a little misleading
I love LuLu clothing. Nothing better to work out in. These shorts fit exactly how they should. I bought these shorts with the expectation that the liner was a boxer brief, as stated in the description. Unfortunately, they are just a brief liner. Make sure to look at all the pictures.

Absolutely the best running shorts around hands down. BUT i noticed mine are falling apart only have a few months of wear. The seam where the zipper pocket is glued together has came completely apart. Not something i would expect from a 60$ pair of running shorts.

I will go ALL DAY with this
I, like another reviewer of these shorts, used to wear Nike running shorts. Now I want to fill my entire shorts drawer with Lululemon 7" Surge shorts. I want one for each day of the week, plus a few extra in case I need to change one out during the day.
They are incredibly comfortable. I use them to run as well as just everyday use. I actually even use them to play beach volleyball. I live in a warm climate that allows me to do so, but it just feels so great. I have several of these shorts already and I literally GO ALL DAY with them. Just fantastic and worth every dollar.
My only criticism, and this is a stretch, is the small pockets inside the shorts near the waistband are pretty useless for me. I can't figure out what to put inside them. They're not large enough for a key. Coins will fall out when running and I can't put my phone in them. The zipper pocket seems to take the use right out of those small pockets. Perhaps a zipper pocket on both sides of the short, same size as it is now, would render those small pockets unnecessary. And perhaps I may not be using them properly.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do-- enough to take the time to write a review! Cheers!

All my running gear use to be from nike. I tried these on the store and immediately bought two pairs. There's something really special about the fabric. It feels very light, silky, and breathable. I really like all the special details. The liner isn't too restricting. The color combinations are very modern and hip. My only concern was not having the 5 inch surge shorts available at the store. I would have liked to see how those fit better.

Perfect Running Short???
I absolutely love this short. Length is great. Liner is perfect. Material super light and doesn't weigh down when wet.
I would like to see this length/style with pockets like the Pace Breaker short. I use gels during lengthy runs and putting more than one in the left hip pocket is difficult and unbalanced.

I run A LOT! I have owned many pairs of running shorts, and these by far are my favorite. They wick sweat well, are as comfortable on mile 18 as mile 1, and look good. I've also worn them for CrossFit and yoga and they perform equally as well. Great buy!

Have tons of different running shorts and none come close to these! They are super comfortable and the perfect fit/length. I like my shorts a little tighter and a little above the knee and these are perfect for that.
I have had the shorts for about 6 months now and wear them constantly and see no signs of wear or tear.
My only gripe is that these shorts do not come in all white as I would love them for tennis. I would love some other brighter colors too.

first off; i love the elastic band to hold your shirt, because i pretty much take my shirt off a few miles into every run. they are a good length for me (at 6' 10"). they are light and have a comfortable liner that never irritates on the longest of runs. the zipper pocket is nice but only big enough for a key or ipod. overall my favorite running shorts to date. i would love if they came in white...
