Heard of Vuori? Yeah, we hadn’t either – though now we’re not sure why not. Vuori is a brand making clothes that combine the best of everything we love in our clothing: style, technical fabric and maximum comfort and performance for whatever task you throw at them.

Case in point: the Kore Short. Vuori’s best-selling pair of shorts, the Kore are your classic athletic short – simple and no-frills – but refined and trimmed down to the bare essentials, and then paired with some sleek style that makes you actually want to put them on. No more baggy basketball shorts, folks. These are real active shorts.

The material is an 88% polyester, 12% spandex blend, which lends them a sweet 4-way stretch that is ultra-comfortable. The Coolmax liner means they are breathable and help keep you cool when working up a sweat, and quick-drying, too. Pocket gussets add to the stretch and the comfort, and the fabric is also odor-resistant to keep everybody else comfortable, too. Finally, they come in an entire line of colors that look ready more for the cookout than the gym.

If you’d like something even lighter, there is also the Trail Short, which boasts a 92% poly, 8% elastane blend and is feels almost  like you’re not wearing shorts at all. The Trail Short has the same 4-way stretch, anti-odor and moisture-wicking properties, as well as the Coolmax liner for comfort and support, a back zip pocket and even a cool hidden phone holder in the liner.

So whatever your thing is – running, lifting, swimming, yoga – Vuori has a pair of shorts that will help you do it in style. Wear them for your workout and then saunter around town without missing a beat. Also, don’t forget to check out the rest of their apparel line, too. Get after it in style, looking cool the whole time (isn’t that what we’re all really doing it for, anyway?)
