Best Bet: Pace Yourself


Roxy's new line of workout clothing, Athletix, is inspiring us to hit the gym this fall. The Pace Setter shorts, which come in a bright lime green, as well as basic black and white, are one of the collection's standout pieces. The dual-layer style has an inner short that fits closely to the leg to prevent any indecent exposure while running or stretching, and a looser, outer layer that keeps gams a bit more covered. With a stretchy drawstring waist and flat, bonded seams, shorts stay comfortably in place during any kind of exercise. The breathable, wicking fabric keeps you cool and features an antimicrobial treatment, which keeps gear fresh in between washes. Best of all, the Pace Setters boast a small inside pocket that conveniently holds an iPod or cell phone, and reflective side strips keep you safe while running outdoors after dark.
