Okay this is a follow up to my post about my freebie shorts from Lululemon. They had given me a pair of Willpower shorts to review. I've now worn them enough to give an accurate review. I would say that they are my new favorite shorts for everything except running. They are a bit longer and roomier than most of my running shorts. I thought that would be good because they were so comfortable. But unfortunately the extra fabric just bunches. It seems like they only ride up on one leg or another but it is enough to be annoying. I have worn them on hikes and bike rides and would wear them to crossfit or any other class. I absolutely love them for everything else. For shorter runs I still wear them as the annoyance of bunched fabric doesn't overwhelm me, but I won't wear them on longer runs. The strange thing is that when I went on their website to review the shorts, I can't even find them anymore. Here's a photo:
Now the run speed shorts are amazing for running! I purchased those that day too and love everything about them! Definitely recommend those for a great run! What are your favorite running shorts?
