Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxyunicorn Great shorts
I purchased the off white color of these in the store. I love them for everyday wear. I wore them to my gym one day to just run through a workout for my class and I'm not sure they would be comfortable during the workout. The tie kept coming undone on low intensity moves. Still they are great for wearing around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovelululemon909 so so so good
I really love these. They are so comfortable and so cute. I have wider hips so I like these more than the run speed shorts. I have 2 pairs and they are like the most comfortable pairs of shorts I own. The elastic on this is perfect too and they are pretty stretchy it seems. I think they also stay true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kdwms I will literally die if Lulu stops making these
I was a speed short loyalist, until these shorts. The waistband is better, they are more roomy in the bum for those of us who are blessed in the donk department, and they have more leg room which is GREAT for running, squats, etc. There is NOTHING that I don't LOVE about these shorts. PLEASE MAKE MORE COLORS AND MAKE THESE A CORE ITEM!
Anyone looking to buy some second-hand speeds? :p

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4vrfit hotty hot love, love, love... out go the speeds
When this style first was released about a year or so ago, I was quite hesitant to give them a go since I was absolutely in love with the speed shorts. After being quite upset and disappointed with the change in the design of the speed shorts over the past year (the back of the shorts are now longer than they used to be and the sizing is very inconsistent) I decided that I'd give these a try when they were released again. Let me tell you, I am EXTREMELY happy that I did!!!! I not only love them for my CrossFit workouts, but I find myself grabbing them to wear for everyday wear! They feel like you have nothing on and here in AZ in the summer time, that is absolutely what you need! I wore them the entire week I was at the CrossFit Games and never once had any wardrobe concerns or issues! The waistband is super soft and lays totally flat... even better at eliminating muffin top than the speed shorts are. The legs are roomy to accommodate a more muscular leg/butt and the material is so lightweight that you don't even feel them when you are wearing them! The rise on the shorts is perfect and the back isn't longer like in the newly revamped (terrible) speed shorts so they don't look awkward or droopy. I feel they are extremely complementary and feel absolutely great in these!!! So much so that I've even gone on eBay to purchase all of the colors from the original release of this style as well! I can't get enough of these!!! Please lulu, keep releasing new colors in these and DO.NOT.CHANGE the design and ruin these like you did my beloved speed shorts that I still mourn!
reference, I'm 5'1", 128, always wear a 6 in speed shorts & most of the tights, 4 in DSP and DSC... these shorts run a little more loose than the speed shorts in my opinion but I still get the size 6 in them.

I just exchanged a pair of block it pocket speed shorts for these. I got the black and white dottie dash. They are so cute and comfortable. I love the look because they are a fun pattern, but still neutral colored and match a lot of things. Wore these with a black "free to be wild" bra and it was the best workout outfit! The mesh is a great addition and the adjustable waist is so convenient. Love the lightweight fabric just like the speed shorts too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Laidnadmss Like but not love
I got these in pistachio as a gift. They fit me a little awkward...I probably could have sized down and they might have fit better. They are really great for airflow and keep you cool, and the liner and the fabric is incredibly comfortable, but overall I prefer the speeds better.
For reference I'm 5'5'', 135(ish) and I wear a size 6 in basically all LLL

Rated 3 out of 5 by emomosocccer Not the best for muscular legs
On the website, these shorts look awesome. As good as they look, they are not good to run or workout in. I like that they're short, but my quads are so muscular that the shorts rise up and my legs touch while i workout.. which is extremely annoying. Although these shorts are not the best for me (I am 5'2'' and have bigger legs) to work out in, i still wear them around the house and when I am out and about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsc2011 amazing shorts for all around
These shorts are awesome! I've purchased 3 pair so far. They're slightly looser than the speed shorts and the liner seems to be made a bit bigger so it really hugs your butt and stays in place. Nice wide stretchy waistband with drawsting ties. Perfect for running, working out or "running" errands.
Note* the top stitching seems to be sensitive to wear in general my black pair has already started to fuzz after ONE wear. Lulu you may need to change your thread for the top stitching as this happened to my Cool to Street crops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlyseR Best Running Shorts Ever.
These shorts are amazing to run in. They are super lightweight and I don't notice the shorts or the liner whatsoever while I'm running. It's obvious that Lulu researched and consulted with some seasoned marathoners when designing these. They are loose enough in the legs that they don't ride up or cause chaffing like when running in the Speed Shorts. I wear a size 4 in Lulu bottoms, and my usual size 4 fit perfectly.
