ChicknLegs Space Cats Shorts Review

s Space Cats Shorts Review

Recently I decided to try ChicknLegs running shorts.

ChicknLegs is relatively new and creates fun printed shorts.  ChicknLegs has everything from Space Cats, to Bread, to USA and flag-themed.  All of the prints are fun. If you’re looking for a fun short to show off your personality, these shorts are for you.

ChicknLegs started with a simple mission: To build running shorts for all of the under-served distance runners. 

ChicknLegs wanted to create a running brand centered around “short shorts” and the following core beliefs:

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

After trying the Space Cats print, I can say ChicknLegs follows all of those core believes. The ChicknLegs shorts are short, fun, comfortable, and affordable.

About the Space Cats ChicknLegs Shorts:

When they came, I was delighted. As a cat lady, you can’t have too many cat things. The ChicknLegs Space Cats were perfect. Cats are floating around in space. Every time I look at them, I smile.

Typically I wear a women’s size XS in shorts, but I needed to size up to a small. If you order a pair, I recommend sizing up.  They have a 1.5-inch inseam, so they aren’t kidding when they say short. While they are SHORT, they aren’t any shorter than spandex, and I don’t feel as though anything is showing that shouldn’t be.

I appreciate the wide elastic waistband built into the short. Shorts with elastic twisting around never last.  The wide waistband keeps it from staying put. There is also a small zippered back pocket that can hold a gel or key. I’ve run with my key and haven’t noticed it, and it also hasn’t fallen out.

When running in the rain, ChicknLegs performed well, and I didn’t have any unusual chafing or find them falling.

Finally, they are $34.99, which for a running short these days isn’t expensive, especially good quality shorts. I think I’ll order the Carbo Load Bread Short next (for all of that bread making I’m doing during social distancing…).

In all, ChicknLeg shorts are fun and I highly recommend it. I would go up a size since they run smaller than other brands of shorts I’ve tried.

After I asked, ChicknLegs offered to give readers 15% off by using the code: LOLZ15.  So thank you ChicknLegs for that!

Questions for you:

What is your most fun pair of running shorts?  Have you tried ChicknLegs? 

Short shorts, yes or no?


  1. Those are rad!!! Kind of bum deal that the mens have an inner pocket instead of the rear zipper like the womens but I’m still interested to try. They look similar in style to the Boa fit and designs.

    1. That’s interesting! I didn’t realize that about the men’s shorts. They remind me a lot of BOA. I love a fun print.
