What The Sport Short

A sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric that's cool to the touch and fits like a second skin, this technical fabric offers support and smooth, low-friction performance

why we made this

We're constantly on the move, so we made these to be the kitchen sink of run shorts. Plenty of pockets, reflective details, four-way stretch fabric and an inseam designed not to ride up mid-stride? Yup, these shorts have it all.

Perfect! I dance, and after looking for the perfect shorts for a while, I finally came across these. I adore them! I sized up from my usual 6 to an 8, and I've had no problems. I went to a dance convention over the weekend and danced for 12 hours. These shorts held up the whole time (and looked so cute!). PLEASE do yourself a favor and ge these. I love them so much I'm ordering more pairs. January 18, 2015
Great shorts for racing or track sessions These shorts fit tight and fast. You feel fast in them. The pockets are really handy for racing - stuff a couple gels in them and you're good to go. They are comfortable to run in. I often pull them down a bit when I finish a rep or a race, but they don't bother me while running. They look great and feel good. I'm 5'6", 117 llbs, and took a size 4, but could have taken a 6 too. January 15, 2015
Great Spin Short These really work well for spinning; they don't ride up at all (as Groove Shorts are prone to do) and wicked away sweat better than any other shorts I've worn to class. I am 5'6, 130 and wear either 4 or 6 in Lulu bottoms; in these, I am happy with size 6. December 30, 2014
Best running shorts. Ever. For realz. I absolutely love these shorts. I just ran the last 15K, half Marathon, and full Marathon in these. I had absolutely no chafing, no riding up, no need to adjust the nice wide waistband. My favorite part of these shorts are the two pockets on the thighs. I never worry about carrying my salt tablets, pacing plan, energy gels. I bought the six 6 and it is perfect for me. I'm 5'2", 127lbs, with athletic legs. No camel toe. This is my go to pair of shorts for racing because I know it will not fail me. December 23, 2014
Awesome. Pockets! These shorts are pretty short, but not too short, so I don't get chub rub. The pockets are great. I don't travel light and went for a run today with keys, phone, credit card, ventolin, and couldn't even tell I was carrying anything. I normally wear a size four, but I am on the top end of the size and these in a four fit me perfectly. December 16, 2014
Best compression style short, durable! Well, some people have said they don't like the what the sport short because of how the leg opening is kinda tight ( i do believe there supposed to a compression short style), but i liked that aspect because for cycling and hot yoga i find that it ride up a lot less. Also, it gives a bit once you wear them so they just right after a wear or two. I used them a lot for running, spin, hot yoga (hiking in the summer), i really liked the length they have its a happy medium not booty short and not weirdly long. luxtreme material holds up great the wide waistband is nice and comfy and lays flat. BUUUUUT I am disappointed that the US has more selection in these shorts then Canada..please get full on luxtreme in ultra violet, stain glass and the new patterns on the regular luxtreme what the sport shorts in giant herring bone and heathered slate I already own the three avaible here. (I wear a 2 I'm 5'4 and 126lbs) December 14, 2014
If you CrossFit - You need these! If you do CrossFit - you need these shorts in your life! Boogie Shorts are waaaaaayy too small for girls with thighs and a bum - these are spot on! They also didn't ride up when running either - this is a plus for me as I normally suffer from bad Chafe! They are they PERFECT CrossFit Shorts - Please bring them out in 100 different colours! Lululemon - you've done it again! November 23, 2014
Why Change a Good Thing? Last year I bought a pair of short running tights - they are amazing, the side pocket with a zip is awesome. The fit is perfect & the fabric has held it's shape. But this year, the shorts are different - no pocket, the fit is not as tight & the leg's ride up. Imagine my dissapointment after having ordered 2 pairs of these online & delivered here to South Africa - with the delivery fee & import duty I now have the most expensive ill-fitting shorts ever. Very very sad face... :-( October 1, 2014
The holy grail of running shorts? These shorts embody everything a top quality running short should be. Comfortable snug fit, 4-way stretch, moisture wicking, breathable, ample amount of pockets. I have been searching for a running short like this for years! When I first set eyes on these it was like I found the holy grail of running shorts. I think a light shined down and angles sang at that exact moment (well, maybe that's a slight exaggeration. But you see where I'm coming from). As a long distance runner training for a marathon, I was excited. They are amazing shorts. Really. Unfortunately for me, I have one issue. The legs ride up. A lot. I have a friend who also has these shorts and it's not an issue for her. I have muscular thighs. Larger than my friend's. I feel that's the cause of my issue. I know it's not a matter of size. I'm 5'6" 125lbs and size 6 fits best. I've tried other sizes to be sure, and watched the "Find your Fit" lulu video. I'm confident it's my muscular thighs. They're slightly rounded, not straight up and down like the model in the pictures. I'm seriously heart broken over this. If these shorts were longer, 3/4 length of the thigh, or had rubber gripping, they'd be golden for me. Please lulu, help a gal out and put some rubber gripping on these, or make them longer. Pretty pretty please? September 27, 2014
my go to running short These are my favorite lulu running shorts. Today I ran 18k in these shorts. I bought my usual size 4 (I'm 5'5" 113lbs) fit is perfect. The pockets are awesome-one pocket can hold one of my small water bottles from my fuel belt, and chews. The other pocket can hold my iPhone and car key. No sweat marks at all and I sweat big time. Shorts stayed in place. I plan on wearing these for my half marathon and feel very confident they won't fail me. I need to invest in a couple more pairs of these. September 21, 2014
