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.

I am a man and I wear these women's shorts. In the 1970s we (boys) wore this exact same style in gym class, basketball team, track, and cross country. I wear them now when I run because they are comfortable. We have to be dry, too. I like the variety of colors (I won't get anything with pink in it). So you should market these for men as well as women.

The Anthracite color is a little lighter in person than on the screen - looks grey not black. :) Great fit, as usual; this is my second pair of Nike Tempo shorts.

If you are looking for perfect running shorts you have found them. These are my favorite shorts ever and even after being worn and washed many times they still feel and fit as well as they did the first time I wore them. They are expensive but I will never go back to cheap cotton shorts after finding these. The built in underwear is also a plus.

Great running shorts. I'm 5'1'' 100lbs and wear an XS. I do have to roll the top down once, but I find them to be very comforable.

So comfortable, really lightweight, with a very convenient pocket for your keys. By far the best running shorts available.

I have many pairs of these shorts and I love them! They are great for running, lounging, etc. I also like that it has a small pocket inside to put a key. I am a size 10 and wear a Medium.

Great shorts! Have them in other colors and they are just as I expected. Comfortable, colorful...Also, the color is just as it appears in the photo so no surprises there. I have already gotten many compliments on them. Enjoy!

These are the best shorts ever! This is my fifth pair, and my favorite color as of yet. It is nice to wear bright colors when running in gloomy weather. That serves as an instant pick me up!

These shorts are perfect! Not too short, not too long. Very comfortable and light for running. They have an inside lining that is barely noticeable when worn. I definitely recommend these for running or any other activity.

Bought these to replace my beloved Nike running shorts I've worn for years. These are great! They're comfortable and don't ride up while I'm running. The only negative is they no longer have a small pocket on the inside waistband to hold a key. Small issue for great shorts. Love them so much I bought two!

These, like all the tempo shorts, are an item of clothing I have worn as a runner for years. In addition they have become a signature garment for teenage girls. They are exceedingly comfortable for running and evidently a fashion for some.

The biggest problem that I have with running shorts are how they ride up my thighs. These are the best running shorts I have ever worn because they stay put. They are super comfortable and look great, they make my legs look good, too.

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!

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'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.

I love these shorts! They are the most comfortable running short I have ever owned and with all the color combos available I could literally wear them every day of my life. It was great to get them from Zappos because they weren't any more expensive than in a store and they shipped for free!
