I bought a pair of these from a running store last May, and loved them so much that I went online to find more. I wanted fabric sturdy enough to be modest, and I wanted it to be supportive so my rear isn't bouncing around. (I am surprised at how many women at the gym wear lycra shorts that are of such thin fabric that you can see EVERYTHING where it stretches across their backsides, and I was seeking to avoid that.) But of course I also want fabric that is comfortable on hot days, and breathable. These shorts do all that. They are long enough to be modest and they don't ride up. I find them very comfortable. I use them for indoor running and cycling at the gym, as well as for outdoor running and cycling on the trail. I also plan to use them for active water sports where my regular swimsuit would just ride up. I have been using these for about four months and have no complaints. I wash them and hang them up to dry, and they dry pretty quickly.

I have bought these in the past and loved them. I just bought 2 more pairs and find that they have been changed for the worse. Brooks has made them more like their fitness shorts: thinner material, less compression, celulite now shows through the thinner material and the waist is not tapered for a woman.

Comments about Endurance 7.5" Short:

I swore by these shorts, running several half and full marathons in them. I can safely say the "updates" have ruined my favorite shorts. The updated fabric does not wear as nicely as its predecessor, and t's updated silhouette does not fit as nicely as prior shorts. I find myself constantly tugging at them while running. I use "updated" ones for training runs. I save "old" ones for race day.

    Comments about Endurance 7.5" Short:

    I am a runner. These fit comfortably at my waist, They are a perfect length and do not ride up. They are not too hot so i guess they breathe well. I immediately ordered a pair for my daughter after i ran in mine because they are that good.

      Comments about Endurance 7.5" Short:

      These are ALMOST the perfect work out shorts. The fabric is great (heavy enough to not show anything you don't want to but not hot) and the u-shaped gusset is so comfortable you can wear these shorts without underwear if you want, and not be embarrassed (if you know what I mean). Also the length is perfect and the shorts don't ride up AT ALL. However, I wish the waist were just a little bit tighter to keep them from sliding down without having to use the drawstring AND I wish they didn't have the zippered pocket in the back. It makes it so uncomfortable to do floor work like abs, yoga etc. because the zipper pull digs into your back. I have seen other shorts with a pocket in the waistband that work, but they either don't have a zipper or they position the pocket towards the front/hip area, which is much more comfortable (and accessible.)

        Comments about Endurance 7.5" Short:

        I purchased these for a half marathon. Initially I liked them. They fit great and were very comfortable. I wore them for one training run, washed on a gentle cycle and air dried one time prior to wearing in the race. Halfway through the race, the seam in the back unraveled, leaving a gigantic hole that was very visible, which ruined my race. I sent an email to customer service but never received a reply. Very disappointing.

          I absolutely love these! I had last years version and loved them, but love these even more. The length is perfect for running. Doesn't ride up, has the thick band for comfort. Definitely sticking with these.

            At 5'9" and mostly legs, I had a hard time finding a short that was the right length. They were either too short and rode up during workouts or too long and they cut at my knee. These were exctly why I was looking for. Just wish they came in different colors

              These shorts are great! I'm hourglass shaped and have a little extra in the thigh/hip/butt area, so these shorts have been great on my long runs and quality workouts. No chaffing, super comfortable, and flattering (for compression shorts). Definitely want to buy another pair (or two)!

                Comments about Endurance 7.5" Short:

                I was looking for compression shorts that provided a lot of support. Other brands I tried used a thin, less strong fabric which was not as supportive or flattering. (I felt like a sack of potatoes.) I would not a have tried these but a woman at my local running shop encouraged me to try them on and they felt and looked perfect. I bought two pair on the spot. (Didn't hurt that I took a smaller size than I usually wear!) They provide a lot of support but I can move quite freely and comfortably. I highly recommend these!
