SUPER CUTE (just a bit too snug)
I just bought these today and they're super cute. The only thing is that they're a bit snug. If you like your running shorts really tight, than these are the shorts for you. But if you're like me and like your shorts a little longer and looser (not booty shorts) then definitely get a size up.
I'm 5'5, 114-115 lbs, and the size 4 was way too tight, even though all my crops fit perfectly in a size 4. So I got a size 6 and they fit great.

Speed Sports made better
I love speed shorts and have been running in them religiously for years. So when I saw these I was ecstatic. The pocket is amazing. 20+K and everything in the pocket is perfectly dry. It fits my iPhone4 (but not with headphones attached). I bought my usual size 6 (5'3 111#s) fits just like regular speed shorts.

Best shorts out there!
I couldn't love these shorts more...I work & workout in these and have since gotten rid of most of my previous running shorts. These shorts fit so well and are comfortable without being overly baggy or too tight. I love all the colors and patterns too!

Life changing shorts
Do your nike short look abnormally large?? Mine always do!! And then I get a really small size and they are to short. Well these shorts look so good. I want to where them everywhere I go!!!

Block-it pocket = genius
One of the great things about these shorts is the slightly thicker waistband - even the little bit extra makes a world of difference in the fit. I'm 5'2 110 and the 4 fits tts. The block it pocket is just genius - why aren't these in all the shorts? I'm pretty sure everyone would be happy if the stuff they jammed into their pockets before a long run came out as dry as it was before they sweated their hearts out.
Please make more colors in 4 way stretch fabric!!!

The fit is perfect.
The fit is perfect....not just how they look on the outside, but the lining as well. I used to buy Nike tempo shorts for years, but I hated the way their lining felt. I felt like I was wearing white, saggy old lady underwear...not attractive.
These look great. Form fitting, but not scandalously tight. They are short, but not so short your booty hang out. The inside is what matters....they fit like a dream. Looking at the liner, it looks like your typical runners brief, but they fit and feel like a pair of form fitting bikini underwear. The exterior fits well enough I don't have to worry about someone seeing up my shorts, but if they did...they wouldn't see the "eek" granny panties.
Thank you again for making something I didn't know I couldn't live without.

The short I've been looking for
I needed a running short to do 3 things: not crawl, have a place to stow my iphone, and look good. Success! I've never had a running short that fit so well. I never have to pull these down or readjust them while running. I just put them on, cue up my playlist, stow my iphone and take off. I don't have to think about them again.
It was 104 degrees outside when I went for my run yesterday so the "Block-It pocket" got a workout from all the sweat and a quick spritz in the necessary trail side shower. The iphone stayed nice a dry. How do you survive an outdoor run in a Texas summer? Drink deep, chase shade, and wear these shorts.
I am 5'4", 120lbs and I purchased the size 4 because the size 6 was sold out and I go back and forth between sizes depending on the Lulu style. I just purchased the size 6 now that they are back in stock. I think I might want a slightly looser, longer fit. Hoping the extra room won't affect the "stay put" fit I have with the size 4.

favorite shorts every
I was weary about these at first, they are very short! But, I decided to keep them and now I love them so much. They pair well with my tighter CRBs. I always have a muffin top issue and these work well on my without falling down!!! I bought in my normal size 8. First pair of these shorts and I plan to buy more!

Speed Short, made BETTER
I love the Speed Short and run in them exclusively. I have probably 10 pairs. The Block it Pocket makes them SO MUCH BETTER. The pocket and opening are larger than the standard pocket in the other Speed Shorts and it's the perfect size for my iPhone 5 with a case. Not only that, but because the pocket is designed to keep sweat out, it keeps my phone safe. Now I don't have to wear an arm band or belt for my phone. I can drop it in and run out the door! It's the most comfortable place for my phone and I LOVE IT! The pocket should be the new standard and all running shorts should come with it. I want more colors! I have too many black bottoms as it is :-( One thing to consider is that the waistband is wider than the original speed short, making the overall length of the short longer. It wasn't a big issue for me, but it's something to consider. These shorts will be lower on your leg than the original speed short, by 1" or less
