My store got the What The Sport Short Long in today and already they are sold out of my size 10 in most Vancouver stores and online. They had an 8 though so I tried those on out of curiosity since some of my run crops are size 8. These where so off my radar but I decided today I cannot run Seawheeze without them so I went ahead and got a pair in my tts 10 on hold at another store. The size 8’s where actually ok since they are so thick, opaque and compressive. Had the 10’s been unavailable I would have made due with the 8’s as the only area they felt a bit ‘snug’ was around the knees where you can see they are squeezing a little, and the rise was slightly lower than it would have been in a 10. It wasn’t uncomfortable, just not ideal. I love the waistband on these because they come up nice and high so you get a pretty smooth waist. I also love the holster pockets on these and how long the inseam is at 9″. These are so perfect for coverage on a long run when you might get thigh chaffing but it’s way too hot to wear crops. On hot days I’ve been layering my sculpt shorts under my tracker shorts but that added material really makes it too hot and cumbersome, and weird with the high rise sculpt shorts under the much lower rise shorts. Why couldn’t these have come out sooner?
Seawheeze is only a week away so my concern with getting run specific clothing now is wether or not I’ll be able to use the pieces for Crossfit or other sports. I will definitely put these to use in Crossfit but I’m also going to be cycling with my dad and sister so they will be great for that as well.
