Customer Reviews

Comments: I just got my first pair of these shorts and I love them. I am over 50 years old and been running for over 35 years. As I get older, I want the longer shorts to feel more comfortable with my frame. These are perfect and I have tested them out on long and short runs. They flow nicely with each stride and don't "run" up or bunch on your inside legs, so no constant pulling down. I like them so much, I am buying a second pair today!

Comments: Brooks 6'' shorts are the best. I have several pairs of their old version and love them so decided to try the Sherpa. They sit a little bit lower on the waist but the new waist band is much more flattering. If you have any chaffing issues or ride up these are the shorts for you and they are stylish too! The pocket in the back works great. My only complaint is that they only have one color! I hope they continue to make the black but maybe have different colors down the sides like their other styles.
