Lap after lap.
Sprints, hurtles, or the mile, no matter what you're running or what level, you'll be comfortable running laps at the track in the Nike Elevate 3in Shorts. The Nike Flex fabric stretches in four directions so you'll have ultimate freedom of movement. To one up the fabric, splits in the hem allow for full strides during speed work or hurdles. Lightweight and breezy, these shorts have a Dri-FIT technology that wicks moisture to keep you cool and dry as your sweat builds while you train on the track.
A new hybrid waistband adds comfort by erasing the marks left by traditional waistbands with a smooth elastic lining in a classic ruched construction. This lining enables the waistband to lay flush against your skin. To keep your essentials close while you're running, a zippered back pocket with a vapor barrier keeps your phone safe while you sweat and a waistband drop-in pocket also with a vapor barrier keeps your keys, card, or hair ties protected from sweat as well.

- Q & A
Great design, great short
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 180lbs
I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend but have feedback to share. She was looking for a pair of split shorts for longer summer runs. These are lightweight, with a comfortable waistband and a small pocket in the back (which is great for a house key or a credit card). Her only wish is that they came in a smaller size. For reference, she's 5'4", 108lbs and ordered a size small. They're just a bit big around the waist. However, she highly recommends these to any runner! Great product.
Just Do It (Buy Them)
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I have never been a huge fan of Nike products (aside from their trail runners), especially the clothes. They always seem poorly made. I prefer brands that tend to be more expensive, but are of higher quality. With that being said, I am always on the look out for the perfect split shorts. I thought I would take a chance on these. I haven't had them for long, but I have already worn the heck out of them. They are SO comfortable (the material is soft and light and the sizing is perfect). I am in love with the cut. It allows for unrestricted movement and it very flattering. I have used them in track workouts and long runs without any discomfort. I like the fit so much that I even have worn them around town. I am hoping that they will be durable, but the jury's still out on that one.
