Stay Cool: Best Running Shorts for Hot Weather

Whether you enjoy or dislike running in the summer, there's always a great moment when it gets warm enough to trade in leggings for running shorts. But finding the perfect comfy pair that looks good, lets your skin breathe, and doesn't cause chafing, especially with a pocket, can be as hard as running uphill in the scorching heat.

There are three main types of running shorts: the loose, traditional kind with a side split for freedom of movement and airflow; tight cycling shorts-style ones that prevent chafing and provide support; and two-in-one shorts that merge the features of both.

Let's get to know the best running shorts for hot weather for a cooler stride.
