With proper care, your INKnBURN apparel will stay vivid and vibrant for years!
Wash on Cool or Warm. Do not use a detergent that contains bleach, whiteners or brighteners! Fabric softener is fine as long as it doesn't contain a bleach or brightener as well. Our colors will stay vivid and bright for years if you avoid any type of bleach. The dryer is fine for INB apparel and you can use dryer sheets, if you like. We recommend the permanent press setting that is warm, without being too hot. If you remove your apparel from the dryer while still warm, you should never need an iron. If you do want a more pressed look, you can use a cool iron.
Please avoid washing your INB apparel with any velcro or coarse fabrics. The tiny holes, that allow our fabric to breath, will catch on materials like this and potentially snag. We can also not be responsible for damage caused by products worn over our apparel that might damage the fabric or the art on it.
Let me first start out by saying I’m not one to really wear tight, short in length shorts to work out in, but these shorts proved otherwise in the fit, design, and durability. I first tried them out for weight lifting and doing cardio in between sets and THEY NEVER MOVED and were EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE! I could actually focus on my workout and not have to struggle with being comfortable. Unknown on Feb 16th 2018
I wasn't sure how these were going to work for me, but I tested them for a 4 mile treadmill run and they past the test! No rubbing or riding up! Super comfortable, cute and functional. The pockets on both sides will come in handy for long runs outside to hold money, my phone, nutrition, keys etc.
I'm 5'7', 147#, curvy and size 6 works great for me. Brenda on Feb 13th 2018
I am loving my new 4 inch Batik shorts. They go perfectly with several items that I already have and purple is one of my favorite colors. I took them out for a long 10 mile run the other day and they did not ride up, I had no chaffing on my inner thighs, and with 2 side pockets, I was able to carry my iPhone 8+ in one and my car remote in the other. If you are considering these, grab yourself a pair before they're gone! SERIOUSLY. Tyra Greene on Feb 13th 2018
I wear the 6" and I'm loving the 4" as well. No riding up, chaffing, and they fell good on. The 2 pockets are deep and large enough to hold your phone in it's case and keys, ID, fuel or whatever you may need to keep your hands free. Unknown on Feb 13th 2018
I'm a huge fan of the regular INKnBURN shorts and have used the 6" shorts for cycling more than I have for running. When these 4" came out, I was really excited to give them a try. I have run a 10k and a half marathon in them. I have had zero issues with chafing and the 2 pockets are perfect for my cell phone, my gu and even my iPod when I feel like listening to music. They didn't ride up and are overall super comfortable. I highly recommend them and hope INKnBURN creates more designs! Maribel on Feb 13th 2018
I have always loved the INB skirts for marathons, but after they came out with the 6" shorts, I started wearing those more and more. However, they are a bit longish for my taste. But then, it looked like INB heard my plea and hit it out of the park with these 4" shorts. They fit just like the 6", the pockets are perfectly placed (and they can fit a lot of this marathoner's nutrition needs), and they are just the perfect length. Love them! Please make tons more!

Just ran 4 miles in these new shorts and I might be in love. At first I wasn’t sure because in the very beginning of my run I felt them riding up a little. But as soon as I started to break a sweat they stayed put and I forgot I was wearing anything at all. That’s how I feel about the 6 inch shorts, it feels like I’m running naked. And I think the shorter inseam is a little more flattering on me from the front and side and not any worse from the back.
I think the gals who are on the shorter side of the spectrum are going to love this length over the 6 inch.
For reference, I’m almost 5’9” and I purchased a size 2 which is the same size I wear in 6 inch shorts. Lisa on Feb 7th 2018
Love the new 4” length. It’s perfect for all sorts of activities where shorty shorts make you feel too ‘exposed’ but capris/longer shorts feel like too much. Th placement of the pockets - again, love it. Right on the hip where you don’t notice the weight of anything you might put in. My 7+ iPhone fits nice and snug in there and leaves the other pocket open for gels, small water bottle, keys, etc. I’m 5’6”, 133-ish lbs and wear a size 6 in these and all other INKnBURN bottoms. I like checking their Facebook page to see pictures that people post in their INK! I hope we get more 4”shorts in the future! Cynthia McCloskey on Feb 7th 2018
