When you’re out exercising, the last thing you want to be thinking about is your clothing. There are any number of more important thoughts that should be occupying your mind, like: “Don’t trip on that rock;” “Look at that beautiful view;” “What’s my heart-rate?” and so on. Unfortunately, all too often, clothing malfunctions can get in the way of a perfectly good outing. Maybe your shorts are chafing, or maybe they keep riding down as you run. One possible solution? The Indura Stay Put Shorts. These shorts are designed to fit so well you won’t even notice them.
Indura Athletic, a small-scale business producing hand-crafted clothing, focuses on creating products that fit women’s athletic bodies and allows them to focus on their workouts, and not their clothing. With unique innovative design features, the Stay Put Shorts do just that.
Unlike most fitted running shorts, the Stay Put Shorts feature a thin grip strip on the bottom hem that keeps them in place and prevents them from riding up. Additionally, they are designed to fit the curves of your body with the inseam being longer to limit chafing, paired with a shorter outer seam to provide a flattering look.
Pockets on both legs allow you to store items such as keys, phones, or snacks while out running.
The shorts are presented with two options, the mid-rise or high rise curve. The mid-rise curve dips below the belly button, and curve up around the hips toward a high back, whereas the high rise option sits above the belly button at an even hight around the waist.
Typically I have always stuck to a more loose fitting running short, but after having purchased the Indura Stay Put Shorts, I’ve begun to wear them more and more frequently. Not only are they practical and well-designed, but they are also stylish and make me feel speedy when I hit the trails.
Being a new and evolving business, Indura is always open to feedback and each product launch produces a new and slightly improved design. Currently, Indura is closed to orders but you can keep an eye out for the next product launch at induraathletic.com or on Instagram at @induraathletic.
Growing up in Washington’s Methow Valley, Ella was immersed in skiing and the ski community from a young age. From early days bundled in the pulk, to learning to ski as soon as she could walk, to junior racing, a few seasons of collegiate racing, and then to coaching, she has experienced the ski world in many forms. Now, as a recent graduate from Dartmouth College, she finds herself living in France splitting her time between teaching English at a university in Lyon, avidly following ski racing (and now writing about it!) and adventuring in the outdoors as often as possible.
