Men's ROAD RUNNER SPORTS ENERGY BOOSTING 8" INNER COMPRESSION SHORT :: Your perfect baselayer for added performance and comfort. The men's Road Runner Sports Energy Boosting 8" Inner Compression Short supports muscles and increases circulation so legs last longer, feel stronger and recover quicker.
Now that running tights weather is over its back to running in shorts... trouble is, this also means its back to inner thigh chaffing. While anti-chaffing products help... they are no where near as effective as a simple pair of compression shorts. And, these RRS Velocity 8" compression briefs are perfect for that purpose. I've run 2 half marathons, a few 10Ks and many routine 6K training runs in my RRS Velocity Inner Compression Briefs. These briefs are now a standard part of warm weather running gear.
The fit is snug but very comfortable. The briefs hold everything in their correct place without being too pushy, too tight, or hot. The briefs also wicks moisture away effectively keeping everything dry and comfy.
I will be ordering more.
I think I finally found what i'm looking
For years I have had a terrible chaffing problem to the point where I would get terribly painful blisters on my inner thighs. I have tried numerous pairs of shorts like these. I bought a pair from RR years ago that work ok but they are not as supportive as these and things don't sit right. I bought these hoping. the minute I put them on I knew I had what I have been endlessing searching for. The give nice comfortable support and I know I will be ale to walk for hours in the heat shopping with my and at the end of the day not look like an upside down letter 'Y'! I bought 2 to start and I am buying 2 more. Thanks you!
I am around a 32" waist, the smalls fit as I wanted them to, very snug. I am 5'6", with short legs, the length is good, an inch or so above the knee. They stay in place well, no riding up thus far when I run. Good waistband. I don't think I would necessarily call them compression shorts, they are snugger and more sturdy than boxer brief underwear, but they do not have as thick a material as the TYR tri shorts I have (and I don't think they are supposed to). They do what I want and at a good price, just don't think they are those thick heavy duty compression shorts, they aren't.

I was skeptical about these but picked these out based on seeing it had 4 star rating, but I don't get it. The waistband is super loose. I ordered a medium after reading to order a size smaller (normally I wear large) and the band is all stretched out after just putting them on. The length was good but they're very thin and hardly compress anything. I tried to give them a chance and went on a 6 mile run but was annoyed with the fit and ended up with some chafing.
Finally a Solution to Chafing
I had a terrible problem with chafing in the thigh area and used ointments that was specifically for chafing, but they did not work. I read a review about these underware and how they prevent chafing. So, I tried them, and wow did they ever fix the problem. My chafing cleared up, and I have had no further problems. They are so comfortable that I will not wear any other kind of underware...ever.
Size runs too big!
I'll have to say that the fabric is one of the best. Being an avid athlete having used compression all the time these shorts would be perfect if they got the sizing right. The size small fits like a medium and after wearing for long endurance events it becomes a large with no compression what so ever. Maybe start offering a Xsmall or get the sizing right please for those who need a true small.
Great Pair of Shorts
These are a great pair of shorts. They give great support on my long runs and for my recovery time. They are very comfortable and be worn alone or under another pair of shorts. The moisture wicking is unbelievable. I wore them on one of my last long run and when I finished the shorts were not wet.
Work like I figured they would
Purchased for two reason, support of the muscles for my short training runs, less than 10 miles and they do the job. Other reason was chaffing prevention and they do prevent that as well. A great product for the price. Worth getting for yourself or as a gift.
Outstanding inner compression shorts for runners!
These shorts provide excellent support and eliminate any chaffing on the inner legs! I'm 6' and 180 pounds and ordered a large size. My only complaint is the inner compression shorts should be offered in a 9" length to provide more support to the quad muscles.
Great pair of compression boxers. Length is perfect so they don't "creep up". Wore them in a marathon for the first time and they were very comfortable. Fit true to size. Would definitely buy again.
My 19-yr-old son keeps borrowing them!
Yet another great RRS product that is as good as any of the name brands, but at a reasonable price. Thanks RRS. Had to order a few more pairs; 1 for me, and 2 for my son so he'll stop using mine!

Wish I had used these years ago
This works great for keeping sweaty shorts from rubbing against my thighs. In Florida this is true 8 months of the year, and I expect for the "cold" mornings in FL, they will be good for warmth as well.
Purchased to aid recovery from groin injury. They provide good compression and only ride up a little with extended wear. Breath adequately for short workouts - 2hr or less.
These shorts offer almost no compression. If you want a layer to avoid skin irritation these might be fine but if you want compression then either buy a way too small pair or keep looking.
Excellent compression shorts!
I like to use these compression shorts underneath my regular running shorts to help add extra support and prevent chafing. Compression is pretty good and I like that it has a draw string.

Standard Compression Shorts
Pretty standard. Nothing special. Not comfy but not really supposed to be;fit and support are good. Already showing wear ie loose threads and logo on leg is peeling off.
Good for the price
It's good for the price. I do wish the waistband was higher quality and wider. Also since I'm tall, it would be nice if they were a couple inches longer
I have been using these for biking and find them to be very comfortable. They don't ride up, and are thin enough to wear under any other clothing.
Can't even tell they're there
Fit great, no chafing or problems with seams, supportive but not too tight. Good stuff. Might go with 9" next time.
Size runs big
Bought this to run and wear during tennis. Very comfortable but would have liked a tighter fit. The feel a bit loose.
Had to return - too long and not good material blend
The material blend does not fit well to the body. The length is too long. The material blend does not fit snug. #79056 is better sku.

Great for active use
These shorts are just what I wanted!
Great to run in.
