Who wears short shorts? Runners wear short shorts. Usually. While you can run in just about anything, shorts designed for running prioritize weight and range of motion.

But which ones should you wear when you finally start training for that half marathon you promised yourself you’d run? We’re asking you to jog down to the comments and pound the pavement in support of your favorite style. Check out the rules below, then be sure to nominate or Star your favorite.

Note: This week, be sure to preface your nomination with whether they’re designed for men or women, and we’ll divide them into two categories for the voting round.

1) Your nomination should contain the name of a specific pair of running shorts, whether it’s for men or women, why you think it’s the best, a link where it can be purchased, and an image.

2) You can nominate multiple products, but please put each one in a separate comment.

3) Vote by starring someone else’s nomination.

4) Please do not duplicate nominations.
