Generally, the taller you are, the longer the leg length you can choose.
We offer three lengths of running shorts. (Lengths are measured on the inside leg, from the crotch to the leg opening).
Pembroke is our shortest style, with a leg length of 5in/13cm. This style suits all runners, but will look particularly good if you’re shorter than average.
Thompson is mid-length (6in/15cm), so it falls to round about the middle of the thigh on average-height men. It’s a versatile cut that suits pretty much everybody.
Hampton is the longest (8in/20cm), so the end of the leg is approaching your knee. This style really suits longer legs.

Are you lean and lithe or strong and stocky?
Pembroke and Hampton look especially sharp if you have a slimmer, distance-runner sort of physique.
If you’re built like a sprinter, or have bigger thighs from rugby or cycling, you may want to consider Thompson. Its slightly more generous cut is ideal for a heavier build.
Think about what you normally take out on a run. What sort of pockets would you like, or need, in your running shorts?
What sports will you wear your shorts for? All three styles are ideal for running, but are great for other sports and activities too.
We’ve put a lot of thought into our colour choices and we’re confident that any combination of Iffley Road kit will look good.
In making a choice, you might want to consider temperature (lighter colours = cooler in sun), how much dirt you’re likely to encounter and, of course, which colour makes you run the fastest!
