Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
I absolutely love the fit and look of these shorts! I have 3 pairs, one of them is about 6 years old and still in the same shape as my brand new ones! I've tried to find similar shorts elsewhere and nothing compares! So comfy, so cute, perfect for the gym or for walking the dog, or hiking, or kayaking (dry quickly). I'm about 5' 9', 155lbs, big legs and a big booty. I usually wear a 4 or 6 in lulu pants but I wear an 8 in these to make sure they don't pull across the front and I have lots of room for lunges and squats! They're perfect. Highly recommend!

I am 5'1" and about 105 lbs. I bought these in a size 4 and they are PERFECT. They are not too long for my shorter legs and they are extremely comfortable! I need to buy more ASAP. The only thing I would be concerned about is the length if you have really long legs.

LESS THINKING. MORE BUYING.
Don't think twice about these shorts. These shorts are life changing. I'm not being dramatic, they really are that great. I used to always live in crops at the gym until I came across these babies. They put my legs on display, they're short (which I love) so I can sweat all I want, very cute cut and they also make my butt look great. I'm not gonna lie, sometimes I wear them days in a row without washing cause they're that great and they go well with all my LLL tops (don't worry, I still wash them, relax). I like the fit of these shorts a lot, they're not oh-so tight but they're not too loose either. The 4 fits good on me which is my usual size.
I don't even know why I still have just one pair of them, I'm gonna buy more when Lulu releases more solid colors. PLEASE bring the Stained Glass Love Pow Pink Light/Menthol, those sold out so quickly.. do you know how devastated I was that my all-time favorite short with the best print that Lulu released was sold out in a matter of a few hours? Please, oh please make more.

Buy these if you love your legs
I hate my legs and was hoping that I could get away with the length....not so much. I purchased the manifesto and inky floral. I am going to keep the inky floral because I love the color, but the manifesto is going back. They are just to short for my liking. My legs are the strongest part of my body, and they are not little twigs....to me they just don't look great. I love the tracker shorts though, they are the perfect length for me to feel comfortable. For reference I am 5'6 140 lbs size 8. Size 8 fit perfect, except for the length which is my own comfort level.

I bought these in the black animal print last week and they are perfect. The pattern does not effect the softness of the 4-way stretch which I so dearly love, and the vivid coral inside waistband is the perfect touch. Glad to add these to my collection.

Best shorts ever!
I can't say enough about these shorts - I have about four other colors and wear them religiously. I can't even wear other shorts to work anymore. I'm just not too crazy about a lot of the colors coming out recently, so I've just stuck to the ones I have

Best Shorts! Totally in Love!!
In love! Usually I swear by nike, or under armour or the like, but I saw the manifesto print speed sports and I HAD to have them.
5'10, Thin build, 120lbs
Runner, figure skater, new yogi
Generally I wear a 6 on the bottom and a 4 in tops, 32B/C bras
What I Liked:
-The fit is awesome (but see the next section for the little hiccup in fit). Its great for doing squats and for running
-The material is so soft and breathable, I like the little vents on the back, especially for sweaty sessions
-I like the continuous drawstring, it makes it super easy to loosen and tighten the shorts as you need
-I have the manifesto print and its so cute, from a distance they just look like a little bit of a heathered black and grey, until you get close up to see that there are actually words in the shorts.
-I LOVE 4 way stretch, so perfect! Great because it allows you to move and bend without any tugging or pulling
-I like the back pocket for my ipod, it kind of gets in the way when you are laying down to do any sort of crunches and stuff like that, but I havent found it INCREDIBLY uncomfortable to the point where I cannot wear the shorts
What I'm not so fond of:
-The cost: Seriously... one of these days lulu is going to figure out that while their products are awesome, they dont always live up to the price. I paid full for these shorts and while I dont regret it, I still wish they didnt cost me $54
-Now, despite how much I raved about the fit of the shorts, there is one small little.... hiccup... The back of the shorts on the legs seem to come down SO much farther than the front... it doesnt look super weird, but I do wish the length at the back was a tad shorter
-Liner: I hate liners in shorts, I find them so annoying. The liner in this short isnt awful, but I do wish they would make a *no liner for the speed shorts. Id buy them in a heartbeat.
-Definitely recommend, they are wonderful for working out and running and they are crazy comfy. I still dont like the price point but I do like them a little better than my Nike shorts.

These shorts are my favorite. They are lightweight and flattering. I have a few pair of these and they are the best. I wear them for Crossfit and running.

So i bought the cutest pattern possible in these shorts and was so excited because it was my first lulu buy. I run for a college and my team is obsessed with lulu lemon stuff, so I could't wait to go for a run in them.
Unfortunately for me, these shorts just did not work. After one wash, my band got all messed up, and the cut makes my legs chafe really badly.
They're super comfortable to just walk around in, but for running long distances, I wouldn't recommend.
Hopefully the next pair of shorts/pants I get from here won't be there same, still love lulu lemon!

Love- but don't wash!!!
I ordered these shorts in the mail after contemplating buying them for a very long time. They seemed a bit expensive to me, but everything from lulu is so nice so I decided to buy them. They are adorable, but when you wash them with only athletic clothes and even don't dry them (like you are supposed to) there is extreme pilling and small threads pull from the fabric to create giant seams being pulled out.
Very disappointed, large waste of money.
