The Longfellow Shorts bridge the gap between two worlds: classic style and modern performance. The secret is in the fabric — a Schoeller Dryskin with four-way stretch designed specifically for the needs of endurance activities. Combined with clean lines and tailoring details, it's the least running-short-looking-running short ever made.

The roots of some of running’s highest performance fabrics date back to 1849 German Rudolph Schoeller began manufacturing textiles in Silesia. In 1868 he moved to Switzerland to open the country's first worsted-yarn spinning mill. Today, Schoeller Textil AG is known world-wide for producing the most innovative fabrics for peak performance. It only made sense to partner with them on such a unique product.
Our long running shorts are made with Eliot Stretch fabric, which utilizes a double-weave construction. Synthetic fibers on the outside and Coolmax fibers on the inside rapidly move moisture away from the skin. The surface is also water repellent, which, combined with the longer length, make it perfect for cool, damp days.
We’ve yet to meet a runner who relishes strapping on an armband. That's why we designed the rear welt pocket of the Longfellow to comfortably accommodate most phones, in the optimum location to minimize bouncing while you run.
A small internal pocket in the waistband fits a credit card or hotel room key. Ideal for when you need to grab a post-run coffee or drink.
Sweated & Vetted
"The non-traditional look appealed to me more than I’d like to admit. I wore them on a few occasions where, post-run, I had errands to do or would otherwise not be home to change clothes soon. I know this shouldn’t matter, but I appreciated not looking like a middle-aged man going about his business in CoolMax split shorts. For people who do a lot of wear testing, gear acquired for that purpose seldom becomes part of their staple running wardrobe. For me, the Longfellows will be the exception." — Scott Douglas, Runner's World
Fit For Fit
For those who wouldn’t be caught dead running in short-shorts, but aren’t fond of either the sloppy basketball-length mesh or thin, clingy nylon options either, we’ve created the Longfellow Shorts - the most advanced long shorts on the market. Neither too long nor too short. Neither binding nor baggy. Lightweight, but not at all flimsy or stripped down. It's the perfect combination for those wanting longer shorts that still perform at all speeds and over all distances.
