We're bringing retro back!  (LIMITED EDITION ITEM)

The Palm Springs collection pays homage to the good old days of Polaroid cameras and roller skates. We've created the ultimate activewear retro set that includes this stunning pair of active shorts, a pair of long tights as well as a matching racer-back bra!

We know that you love the Manila shorts, so we have recreated them as a part of our Palm Springs retro set! These shorts are no-ride, squat proof, mid-waist and the perfect length, even a little longer than our classic Manila shorts!

These shorts are 100% squat proof. We used the same fabric as our long tights, giving you a firm, sleek fit. The Palm Springs shorts are mid-length with an in-seam of 12cm (a few centimetres longer than our standard shorts). It is not at all too short and not too long either. 

Our signature white line is added to the waistband for an additional slimming effect.

These shorts also have a pocket in the back of the waistband for your keys or gym card! 

They feature a mid-rise, reinforced waistband that ensures they stay exactly where you put them and it looks very flattering around your waist! You will never have to worry about anything sliding down or riding up!

Made from performance fabric that is 73% polyester and 27% spandex. This is a great combination of durability, softness, elasticity, and comfort. 

Key features:

  • Guaranteed NO-RIDE fit
  • Mid-length short fit.
  • Mid-rise reinforced waistband.
  • 4-Way stretch fabric for a move-with-you feel.
  • 100% squat proof. Zero transparency!
  • Pocket for your keys and gym card
  • Dri-fit & anti-bacterial
  • Moisture-wicking and breathable
  • Flat-locked seams for high strength and durability.

 Editors Note: "You will absolutely LOVE these shorts, especially paired with the Palm Springs bra for your ultimate retro summer look!"

Worth the money!

I pondered for weeks about whether or not to buy these shorts but I am so happy I did! Very comfy and I love the length, most exercise shorts are just way too short but these are just perfect. I sized up from my usual size in the long tights (because I don’t like tight shorts) and I’m happy I did :).

No more shorts running up whilst running, yay!

I own a pair of Manila shorts and couldn't resist these colourful babies! I'm obsessed with the quality and the fact that the DO NOT run up while you are being active. Game changer, for sure! Love the Burnt brand.

Great Purchase

Fits perfect and the size calculator is very accurate. I did a 21 km run with it and it was very comfortable. I would definitely recommend it.

Miemke Retief

I always hated it jogging with short tights because i had to pull them down the whole time. Joh, this is the best tight EVER!!! I looooveeeee wearing it! Thanks burnt studios 😁😁😁😁

Best Shorts Ever Had

This has been the absolute best buy. The shorts stay exactly put while doing squats, burpees and double unders. They hit mid-thigh which is just that little bit of extra length I’ve always wished for. Love the colours and the funky vibe of the whole set.

Feeling like a rockstar on the crossfit floor. This is an investment. A must have. I would buy one in every design that comes out. 😍
