Pace Crops and Run For Your Life crops, have 17" inseams that bunch up behind my knee as I run so I was very happy with the Up the Paces. Inspire crops are 2.5" longer (21.5") and always make me feel on the warmer side, particularly the all-luxtreme ones, so I liked having a little more bare calf in these crops. The mesh panel by the knee added a little patch of coolness. I was super happy with these and think I have a new favorite run crop. If you are in the market for run crops and find the Inspires too long for you definitely check out the Up Your Paces.
