Run: Speed Short *2-way Stretch
I am so upset with these shorts, and the customer service. I bought these shorts in black/black/black which are (obviously) black with a black painted on design on it. With ONE wash and a hang dry the paint cracked and started peeling off just one side. The other side is fine, so it looks like one side is silver and peeling and the other is black. This has never happened to me with LuLu stuff, that is why I am usually a huge advocate for it. After I called customer service, they said I can return them and get my money back, and that she would send everything I need to my e-mail. Okay, but maybe its because I have never had to send anything back through shipping, but when I looked at my e-mail, I was the one who had to pay for shipping, so I would get less money than I paid for them. I'm sorry, but when I pay $64 for a pair of shorts, I should probably not have to pay shipping on them when they are deformed. Although I threw away all my tags because the shorts fit me great, I will try and get a refund from my local LuLu store. Lets hope I have a better experience.

Add More 2-way
I accidentally bought these not realizing the 2-way stretch was much different than the 4-way. I was skeptical at first, but after multiple wears, this is my favorite fabric. It's not as soft, but it's so much more durable. It doesn't stick to your skin in hot humid weather, so despite the stiffer material, I don't have a chafing problem with these. Most of my shorts are 4-way, but that's only b/c there aren't many 2-way shorts to choose from. Please add more 2-way stretch speed shorts!

BEST. SHORTS. EVER.
These are just the right length and they don't ride up thanks to the liner. Super cute and great for running! Lots of pockets for keys/money/whatever. Please BRING BACK the 2-way stretch!! I don't know why they seem to be disappearing, but they're much more flattering than the 4-way stretch and also wash better.

Like wearing nothing at all
I purchased the 2-way shorts a while ago in a 4 but they don't seem to fit as nicely as this 4way stretch shorts. I had no trouble squatting in them. They do not ride up.

Can't get enough of these shorts!
Just bought another pair of these shorts in 'star crushed black cherry'. Third pair that i have bought! Very versatile short. Wear them for both cardio and weights training. Inner lining and 4 way stretch means they can handle squats, even in a wide stance. Flattering length and shape. Will no doubt be more buying in the future! Highly recommend. Love these shorts. If only they had a medium/high waist on them rather than low, they would be PERFECT.

Love these shorts I own them in multiple colors and they are great for running, hiking and any cardio. I'm 5'1 and they are the perfect length.

The best shorts you will ever own.
In love with these shorts. They look great and I've been able to wear them for various activities like the gym, hiking, hot yoga, cycling, gymnastics, and cheerleading. Their versatility and high quality material makes these my all time favourite shorts.

I have owned so many speed shorts before, and the sparkle swift black gunmetal/black is by far my favorite pattern LL has released. However, HORRIBLE FIT!!! I have so many speeds (2-way & 4-way) and they are ALL size 6. Why would they just randomly change the way they fit/the sizing is? I even ordered a size 8 to see if maybe I just need an eight. No, they were HUGE. The waist band was not tight around my hips and I had a huge gap when I did squats. The fit around the bum area has gotten WAYYYY more tight and it seems as though the leg openings are NOT the same. I hope LL can fix this and truly considers these issues, because the CrossFit market is HUGE and everyone I've talked to agrees with me. The fit just isn't as good as before. For basically $60 shorts...lets get the fit right please!!! & lets consider us girls who like to squat heavy weight.
***I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE SHORTS ANYMORE***
Please fix the fit!!!

Great but improvements could be made
These shorts are fantastic. They are comfortable and dry quickly. I wear these to do Crossfit in and also casually.
To make great shorts even better, block colours would be good - instead of just patterns each season. Also sewing the openings around the back of the short would be good, for those people who prefer to wear the shorts a little larger.

Best eva running short
Fantastic running short!
I raced Melbourne Marathon once again in my favourite speed short! They are ultra comfortable, short enough to not be felt at all, light weight, breathe well and have a rear pocket for my gels and spare key!
I did another great time and I'm sure the shorts helped - one less thing to stress about knowing I'll be uber-comfortable and chafing free.
