Product Summary

Alphalete’s Stride Shorts strike the unique balance between comfort and performance. Featuring a woven short design with compression liner, these shorts are designed to be wider at the hips and have a high-cut split hem for improved mobility. The double layer prevents visible sweat marks. The spandex underneath has the potential to ride up a bit when running however, that is not surprising given the style.

If you plan on running in dimmer lighting, these may be a great choice as they come with both reflective tape detailing on the hem as well as the Alphalete Athletics logo on the center back. Sitting slightly above hip height, the Stride Shorts have a higher rise with an elasticated waistband for comfort. There are also two zippered pockets to securely store essentials when out and about.



80% nylon and 20% elastane






Elasticated waistband with drawstring
