May 10, 2023
New loose-fitting technical running apparel inspired by the trail running champion is available now
Annecy, France (May 10, 2023)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Two-time UTMB® winner, Hardrock 100 winner, and now trendsetter. Salomon trail running athlete Courtney Dauwalter has won just about every ultra-trail race one can enter, and she won them all wearing her signature loose-fitting, knee-length Salomon prototype shorts. Along the way, fans on social media have coined them the “shortneys” and now everyday women runners can have them, too. The women’s Shortney running shorts and T-shirt are now available for purchase on Salomon.com.
“I’m very excited that the Shortneys will be available for everyone, long inseam party!” says Dauwalter. “Being comfortable while running is the most important thing and providing this longer length short option for women is awesome.”
The oversized technical trail shorts and T-shirt inspired by Dauwalter combine ultra-comfort and lightness for long distance runners looking to push the limits and be comfortable while doing it. The shorts and shirt feature a quote from Courtney that reads: “No one else can run those miles for you.”
“Courtney has her own style and it’s all based on comfort and performance, which is what we aim to deliver in our S/LAB apparel products,” says Marthe Magis, Salomon’s Product Line Manager for Running Apparel. “We heard the call from trail runners and fans of Courtney to make her signature Shortney shorts and T-shirt available to all women runners. After some collaborative work with Courtney and our Service-To-Athletes design team, we’re excited to make the shorts and short a reality for the spring ’23 range.”
The Shortney shorts have a 26.5cm (10.23-inch) inseam and feature ultra-soft, lightweight stretch fabrics that dry quickly and keep you feeling comfy over any distance. The oversized design and lightweight, four-way stretch fabric is supported by elastic yarns to liberate your movements for an irresistible feeling of freedom. AdvancedSkin technical fabrics improve body comfort by keeping you dry, warm and protected when you need it and where you need it. The 37.5® Technology material optimizes your body’s microclimate to maintain an ideal core temperature, so you perform better, longer. It also dries five times faster than similar fabrics.
