The Best Running Clothes

It's no secret that we love running here at KoaKoa. We started this brand when we found the running gear we were buying to be lacking when it came to performance for real bodies. When it comes to adding new gear into our range the first testing we do is running. Some of our bras have been tested over 3 day 100km stage runs to make sure they pass the test for performance and comfort.


We also know how important cross training is so we test the shorts on leg day at gym to make sure they tick all the boxes when it comes to your running training. We want you to be comfortable whether tackling your first 5k or ultra.

Here are our top picks for the best running clothes for women


High Impact Sports Bras


Stride Bra

When it comes to bras and running, chafe factor always comes into the equation at some point. As mentioned above - we tested the Stride bra over 3 days and 100km in blistering heat to make sure that chafe was not a problem. The Stride Bra not only looks great, but ticks all the boxes when it comes to performance

  • High impact sports bra
  • Great for smaller and larger chests
  • Eyelet hooks to adjust the bra to your support needs
  • Fixed padding
  • Zero chafe

The Empire bra is a new addition to our high impact sports bra arsenal. A beautiful back with outer stitching details. The Empire bra has fixed padding and eyelet hooks to adjust the support to your needs.

  • High impact sports bra
  • Suitable for smaller and larger chests
  • Eyelet hooks
  • Fixed padding

Say hello to the best running shorts

When we started looking into the best running shorts we took 2 factors into consideration that have always bugged me having thighs that rub together.

1 No riding up and 2 no chafe.

Our shorts are the perfect length on longer and shorter legs. No riding up the legs and no sliding down the waist. Moisture wicking fabric with 4 way stretch means there is no chafe. All our shorts are high waisted and sit comfortably on or below the belly button depending on your torso length.

Again tested over a few 100km's of running, you'll love these shorts for any distance.


Classic Biker Shorts

Our classic bikers come with a bit a twist. A butt lift seam that makes your booty look amazing with the perfect compression without squeezing you in places. The perfect length bikers that are beyond comfortable whether spending all day on the trails or a quick speed session in the week.

  • Moisture wicking fabric for no chafe
  • High waisted and cinched in waist means no sliding down
  • Perfect length for no chafe between the thighs 
  • Butt lift seam to make your booty look amazing
  • Ultra comfortable (couldn't resist the pun)

Pace Biker Shorts

These are our new go to trail running shorts. Slightly shorter than your classic bikers - the pace shorts are made with a buttery soft fabric with a small back pocket to stash small essentials like keys and gels. Super durable, I recently took a bad fall in the mountains and they didn't have so much as a scratch compared to me.

  • 4 way stretch
  • Moisture wicking fabric
  • No chafe between the thighs
  • High waisted and cinched in waist means no sliding down
  • Small back pocket for essentials
  • Ultra soft for all day comfort on those long runs
