APPAREL REVIEW: Saucony Interval 2-in-1 Short

by Chris Scotina, Marathon Sports staff member


The Saucony Interval 2-in-1 short is a perfect match for any workout you want to do, from a long run, to speed work on the track, to a circuit in the gym. An 86% polyester/14% spandex blend offers great breathability and keeps the skin dry and cool. The shorts are lightweight and have a built in boxer brief lining that provides support and a touch of compression.

With this product Saucony has created a functional short that can be used for a variety of activities beyond running. The stretchy shell moves perfectly with the body during cross-training, while the compression liner provides comfort and support. An 8″ inseam hits just above the knee for a short that can easily transition from the run to the gym and beyond.


As a former sprinter, I look for certain qualities in my shorts: a lightweight feel; breathability; and storage capability. The Interval Short fulfills all these qualities. The pocket is large enough to store several nutrition packets – and is even large enough to fit my Samsung Galaxy S6 (not exactly the smallest phone in the world!) I love to listen to music on my run, so having this large pocket helps me stay sane on my runs.

The Interval Short [$56.00] is a great go-to piece for men during the spring and summer months. They are available in men’s S-XL in all Marathon Sports locations in Black/Zest (pictured) and Rainforest Blue.
