The Find: My Best Workout Shorts

Apr 19, 2024

For eight years, I have worn the same workout shorts. Every year, an influencer tries to sell me new shorts. I order them. I try them on. They pale in comparison to the shorts I already own. I return them.

Please ignore the black socks with the sandals.  I do not know why North Face woke up this morning and chose violence, but let’s try to look past it.

These are the North Face Aphrodite shorts.  They are comfortable, long enough, have pockets, and dry in a snap if you fell in a creek (don’t ask, don’t ask).  

Amazon has them in three colors, regular and long lengths (even I wear the long, because I like having the extra inches), misses and plus-sizes.  Some colors are as little as $19.  I bought two pair because now I can have backups.

    Long time reader here, and I’m laughing – I bought these on your recommendation before my honeymoon trip to Thailand in 2019! They really are the best activewear shorts. After 5 years of wearing them, they’re as good as when I bought them!

    Which size do you wear? I find I’m usually about the same size as you are.

    Have you found that there’s comfortable room for a phone in the pocket? I’ve defaulted to bike shorts for that reason, but would love to switch to something looser. Thank you!

    Where do you find the Aphrodite shorts in Long?? I would love to buy some

    Does anyone have a lead on cute UPF long sleeve shirts? I live in Phoenix and applying sunscreen all over my arms/chest for a morning walk is just too much.
