Dedicated pant wearers, we also see you and worry about you on your runs when summer temperatures reach their peak. While we’re not trying to force you into a pair of split shorts or daisies, opting for longer shorts can help keep you comfortable while still providing ample coverage while you run.

When looking for longer shorts, the magic number is a 7 inch inseam. 7-inch inseam shorts will give you great coverage while being airy and breathable, and they’re less likely to ride up than shorter styles. Since there are so many shorts to choose from, we’ve rounded up our favorite 7-inchers to help make your shopping experience a breeze. Note: The first three shorts are women’s shorts while the next three are men’s shorts.

Best 7 inch inseam running shorts

What to consider

Running shorts are usually relatively short, so for styles with inseams that measure 5 inches or more, you’ll want to make sure they’ll allow enough movement. The best way to ensure this with long inseams is a slight side slit and a wide leg. The material is also important – you’ll want it to wick away moisture and have at least a slight stretch so it moves with you and doesn’t cause chafing or discomfort.

How we selected

To find the best options among the many 7-inch inseam running shorts, we researched some of the most popular shorts available at Amazon, department stores, and specialty sports gear retailers. We then considered price, materials, size, range of motion, and comfort. Finally, we looked at reviews written by people who bought these styles on sites like Amazon, to settle on the running shorts you’ll find below, all of which have an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars or more.
