woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
We're proud of our athletic quads – we worked hard for them! We made these shorts out of stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric with plenty of room for our muscles. With details like a secure leg pocket and lightweight liner, they help us reach our runner's high time and time again.

LOVE the 4 way stretch Trackers
I am embarrassed to admit how many pairs of Tracker variations I own, but I literally threw out all Nike & other brand shorts this summer. I do have to say that there are 2-3 pair that have the bothersome itch on the left waistband. I know you'll suggest I bring them back in, but I do love the prints. Please try to eliminate this problem, as I have seen many people complaining. Just ran the Seawheeze half marathon in Vancouver this weekend. I had 3 pair of Trackers packed to choose from, but I ended up buying 3 more from the Seawheeze store. I ran 13.1 miles in a brand new pair of unwashed 4-way Trackers...no chafing whatsoever. I am 5'10" and have muscular legs. The 2-ways fit just a tad smaller. I have both, but I totally prefer the 4-way. All in all, I am so pleased Lulu has listened and keeps bringing the die-hards more fabrics to choose from in the fabulous Tracker. Just wish you'd get rid of the waistband issues for once and all. Thanks!

I love these shorts!! I have multiple pairs of Lulu shorts but I have issues with some of them constantly riding up because I have rather muscular legs. I just bought these shorts, and I love love love how they fit! They don't ride up and they are just super comfortable!! I also tend to stay away from patterned shorts because they sometimes make my legs look bigger, but I went with the dark blue striped pattern on these shorts and they actually make my legs look thinner! In love with these shorts, definitely worth the money!!

Love the shorts but...
I loved the tracker II shorts in the two way so much that I bought every pair they had a week ago in the store. Well it ended up being the 4 way stretch, but I thought I would give it a go because the colors were awesome. They definitely are not even close to the two way. They are much bigger and have pieces that dig into your side when you run. Also I have very muscular, thick thighs and the two way never ever ride up but the four way does :( I went out for a light jog with one pair I bought right away because I was so excited! I had to drive 5 hours to the closest lu lu store to get them. But I was really disappointed with the fit of the 4 way stretch. They seemed an entire size bigger. Now I have 1 pair of shorts that will just sit in my closet and collect dust.

Love but what the heck is the plastic pokey things
I have these shorts already and I love THEM. I just ordered the polka dot ones and the first time I wore them I kept noticing a really obnoxious pricking feeling on the front left side of the waist band. I could not for the life of me figure out where it was coming from!! Really frustrated as they are my favorite shorts and I am disappointed in the quality control. I love LULU but lately have had too many issues with items having defects.

Amazing for us athletic legged girls!
I never thought I would find a pair of shorts I could run in! Normally they ride up and the chafing begins... Not with these!! I have the 4-way and 2-way and love them both, I have 3 pairs right now and 2 more on the way. I hope you continue to make more, and in cool funky patterns!! They are my go to shorts for my first marathon!!!

Best shorts ever, except the pokey waist band
These shorts are probably my favorite lulu shorts that I own. The waist band is thicker and the shorts fit my body very nicely. The only issue is that the waist band on my left side pokes me really bad. At first I thought it was the plastic thing that the tag is connected to but it's so annoying and hasn't gone away that I have to tuck my shirt into it whenever I wear them:-/ if that wasn't an issue I would order them in every color! You can also only feel it on your skin you can't feel it with your hands if you try to pin point where it's coming from. Overall amazing shorts but it's a bummer the waist band is an issue.

Amaze shorts! If you win the pokey-fiber coin-toss
Love- the curious jungle print, the "low" wide, comfy waist band, the cut, and the soft material that doesn't chafe/bunch-up!
Don't Love- quality control issues and having to hope that my shorts don't try to attack me.
Overall- I love my Tracker II 4 way stretch shorts! I was between a 6 and an 8, and went with the 8, a little loose, but I was not at all bothered by any extra material on my run, and I usually would be.
The size 6 (returned) DID have the pokey fiber situation (ouch! they really do hurt) but the 8s do not (So far! Fingers crossed.)
I really like the Run Ultra II shorts from 2012 (shorter than the trackers, but not as tiny as the speed short, great waistband, perfect for long runs) and had I not yet found any other shorts here that I want to run in, until these.

There shorts are absolutely amazing! Please, please, please make the 4-way Tracker in more colors. I am 5'2" and 127 lbs, I have strong athletic legs and the 6 fit perfectly! I love the sheer lemon color. The liner is comfortable. I have not experienced any itching issues with the waistband on these shorts like other reviewers have noted. I have, however, had some awesome runs in them!

Love the Tracker!
These shorts are amazing! Love the fit, especially the extra room in the thighs. Great for CrossFit gals who have muscular legs. I can't wait for more colors to come out!
