Whether you're doing sprints or running marathons, you're going to want to wear a pair of shorts that moves with every stride. But how do you know which brand is the best? All you have to do is check out our list of the best running shorts brands!

Running shorts (and maybe a good pair of running shoes) are crucial to making your run as comfortable as possible. There are two types of running shorts: traditional loose fitting shorts that usually come with a moisture-wicking liner, or compression running shorts with a tight fit that helps to increase blood flow to your muscles. Whatever you choose to go with, make sure they're comfortable for when you want to log those miles. 

Brands like Nike, Adidas, and Asics offer men's running shorts and women's running shorts that are perfect no matter the distance you're running.  Lululemon, Under Armour, and Tek Gear also offer some great options. If you don't see a brand on this list that absolutely needs to be added, go ahead and throw it in!

It's time to hit the pavement  (or the treadmill). But before you do, check out our list of the best running shorts brands. Upvote the brand that allows you to run as long or as fast as you can!
