chicknlegs our story how we got started


ChicknLegs started with a simple mission: To build running shorts for all of the under-served (and under-toned) distance runners around the globe.

Cross Country and Track are arguably the two toughest sports known to mankind; Runners destroy their bodies day in and day out all for the slight chance at writing their names among other legends in the famed book of school records.

Runners we have mad respect for the work you're putting in. Like you, we are also working tirelessly on our craft. We want to create a running brand that redefines the phrase "short shorts" without changing our core beliefs:

  • Running shorts are short
  • Running shorts are fun
  • Running shorts are comfortable
  • Running shorts are affordable

If you ever feel we are deviating from these core beliefs, send an email to with the subject line:

"You've changed, bro."

and we'll get the message. When our shorts slide up along your upper thighs for the first time, we want it to feel like you're buttering a slice of toast with some of that spreadable butter that hasn't been refrigerated in a couple hours. But more than anything else, we want our customers to be so happy with their purchases that they tell their friends about us because the ChicknLegs revolution has just begun. 

Come check out a pair and be amazed.
