The high heat of midsummer has us looking for new ways to stay cool on our runs, and sometimes a running skirt is just the ticket. Whether you’re a ‘taking-names-and-charging-hard’ kind of woman or you just want to look hot while you log miles at the track, there’s a run skirt for you. Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself.
The Nike Women’s Rival Stretch Woven Skirt lets you express your mood on your run from day to day. The internal fitted short provides freedom of movement while the outer skirt has drawcords on each side to adjust skirt length and provide a ruched effect. Leave the skirt full-length when you’re feeling mellow, or cinch the cords for a sassier look.
