Perfect. As a runner who does not have a typical runner's body i.e., I'm 5'4ish and 155 pounds. I have a lot of trouble finding shorts that are comfortable and don't ride up. Actually, I'd never found another pair until I found these. For me, these fit slightly below the waist (not truly low-rise, but not at the waist either), and the legs are indeed pretty loose, as another reviewer mentioned. For me, as someone who has fairly large thighs and who wants shorts to stay down when I'm running, this is a good thing. The lack of that extra space is exactly why I hate other shorts. The large fits me perfectly, and now it's either these shorts or long compression shorts for any warm-weather athletic activity. I've tried to find other brands that match up to these, but I haven't found anything as good after 4-5 years of searching. I highly recommend them if you are a curvy runner who has a lot of trouble with shorts riding up: while they still do it a little bit every once in a while, it's enormously better compared to any other non-compression shorts. (If you really want shorts not to ride up, get some 5 or 7 compression shorts, but these are a lot more attractive than those, and arguably more comfortable.) I also have a zillion pairs of these just for lounging around.

I found this short to be very unflattering-the waistband cut into my sides while the rest of the short was loose and baggy. I like the fit of the Nike Pacer short so much better.

These are great running shorts for those with no thigh gap (thick thighs)! They rarely ride up and that's saying a lot for someone like me. They're comfortable and a great price; these are only second to the amazing (and crazy expensive) Lululemon Tracker shorts. Love them!

I'd also recommend: Lululemon Tracker shorts

Love these shorts. They are a little better price than buying directly from Nike and the Zappos return process is obviously much easier. The tempo shorts in generally run a little small so if you are in between sizes go up rather than down.

I'd also recommend: Adidas

I've worn the Tempo short from Nike since high school cross country, which was a WHILE ago! I tried other brands and styles...but always came back to these shorts because of pretty simple reasons: 1. They are neither too short or too long..just right. 2. They come in so many colors it's difficult to just buy one. 3. If you gain a little weight, the waistband stretches. If you lose weight, you can fold/roll the waistband down for a tighter and sexier look. 4. The key holder is sewn right on the part of your hip that never really moves when you run, very smart. Over time, and I'm talking about a 5 year span here, the elastic in the waistband does deteriorate and will not work anymore from the wear and tear and washing of these shorts. Then it's time to buy new ones!

These are my new favorite shorts. The waist doesn't ride up while I'm running or working out and the legs are roomy enough to move and not feel restricted. I can't wait to get another pair.
