the sugoi moxie shorts are perfect for setting the summertime, hangout, be casual mood. while they are not the ideal running short, they are run-able with two front pockets, an inside key pocket, and a mesh liner. they make excellent shorts for lounging around, hitting the beach/pool, running errands around town or hitting a cardio/yoga class at the gym.
my former running buddy got married recently, and pre-wedding she was on the hunt for "cute, loungy clothes" for the honeymoon and her new married life. personally i feel i'll put even less effort into my appearance once i've tied the knot, but i can understand the honeymoon-clothes excuse. i would definitely have recommended these shorts to her as they are very cute and comfy.
i haven't personally run in these shorts, but if the laundry ever runs low i wouldn't hesitate to. they've been great shorts to hang out in and the local kroger shoppers have been envious of my style while i food-shop. unfortunately the other night i was trying to enjoy some vanilla ice cream and managed to dump the entire pint-sized container in my lap on my nice, new chill-out shorts.
this picture doesn't do it justice (nor does it make my legs look very good). the ice cream was all over the place, including a drippy trail from the desk to the bathroom. i'm not having much luck lately without having an incident in my shorts huh.
other than the ice cream mishap - these shorts are terrific! so comfy and very cute. boys, i know you don't have much use for these (other than maybe steve) but you could always hook your wife/girlfriend up with a pair!
