Strata Run Shorts

These stylish shorts are for far more than just looks. They feature a second pair of compression shorts underneath to help prevent chafing and for full coverage (so you can ditch that hot pair of yoga pants you've been working out in). The combination of the compression under shorts and sheer outer layer also help with venting to ensure you stay cool during your workout — talk about a win.
