Women's running shorts: lightweight speed
Since the 1970s, we've proudly supported women everywhere to achieve their running dreams. Today, we make our running shorts for women with that same goal in mind. They're designed with the comfort you need for long runs and the breathability that gets you through sprints. Choose women's running shorts with reflective design features like Swoosh graphics to increase your visibility and make sure you're seen on low-light runs.
Stay cool mile after mile
Whether you're pushing off the starting line or upping your speed during Fartlek training, your shorts need to keep up with the pace. Ladies' running shorts with moisture-managing fabric keep distractions to a minimum when you're chasing the miles. Dri-FIT fabric wicks away sweat and dries fast. The result? You feel fresh from your first stride to your last. As the heat builds, stay cool and comfortable thanks to innovative designs that keep the air flowing. Ventilated panels let warm air out in high-heat zones and mesh placed in areas like the sides and back keeps you cool as you move. Laser perforations improve the breathability so you can stay determined with every step.
Ladies' running shorts that keep you moving
We make jogging shorts for women with soft fabrics—designed for maximum performance. Ladies' running shorts engineered with a silky-smooth fabric are gentle on the skin. The lightweight materials mean you can run fast without being weighed down. Go for streamlined shorts elevated by technical material that stretches to keep you moving freely. Or choose our free-flowing trail running shorts—they're made for layering, so you can stay comfortable in all conditions. Running shorts with side vents give you room to move forwards and backwards.
The ideal fit for your run
Find your perfect fit with Nike women's running shorts. Choose form-fitting styles that keep you secure, or feel light and airy in looser-fitting designs. And for extra support and comfort, go for shorts with inner briefs that fit like a second skin. Two-in-one running shorts for women provide coverage along with freedom of movement. The loose outer shorts combine with stretchy tights underneath to give you a secure feeling when you're warming up or running hard. Look out for pairs with elasticated waistbands that keep shorts in place when you're on the move. Adjust them with the drawcord fastenings for a fit that feels just right, and you're ready to hit the road.
Our ladies' running shorts combine outstanding performance with thoughtful details. Zipped pockets keep your keys or bank card safe as you run. Meanwhile, drop-in pockets hold phones or headphones and keep them safe as you stride on the track, pavement or treadmill. Go for Nike ladies' running shorts with hidden pockets in the waistband to hold your stuff securely and eliminate the feeling of bounce. With your valuables in check, you'll be free to run to the finish line.
