ARE RUNNING SHORTS GENDER-SPECIFIC?
Running shorts come in men's, women's, and unisex designs. Each style has gender-specific features that can help you run more comfortably.
MEN'S RUNNING SHORTS
Men's running shorts typically have a longer inseam. The built-in liner usually offers more support in the groin, so a jockstrap is not a necessity. These details create a design that is better suited for the male body. They can also help prevent discomfort or chafing.
WOMEN'S RUNNING SHORTS
Women's running shorts focus on a better fit for a female's waist, hips, and thighs. This makes for a more comfortable design. They also have shorter inseams for shorter legs.
