You don't have to run track to appreciate the wicking comfort of the lightweight Women's Nike Tempo Shorts. Some race and workout shorts are fairly simple in design, but Nike optimized the construction of the Tempo Shorts for venting and comfort -- traits constantly mentioned in consumer online reviews. Also called the Nike Tempo Track Shorts, they feature Dri-FIT microfiber polyester fabric, an easy-care, highly breathable wicking material that helps pull perspiration away from your skin. Along the sides are mesh panels to enhance overall air flow around the built-in internal briefs with each stride. These running shorts are a popular choice for women who run marathons, 10Ks or friendly 5K race events, especially in warm weather conditions. The exact inseam lengths are dependent on sizing, but the medium-size Nike Women's Tempo Shorts feature a 3.5-inch inseam.
