About Us

Activewear is fragile and outdoor clothing is rough.

Burro makes rugged, comfortable shorts that are equally at home on the trail or a zoom call. Headquartered at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we embrace the spirit of everyday adventure. We know that a work day can end at a spring-fed swimming hole or a local brewery.

To us, the burro represents our stubborn commitment to making the most rugged and reliable pair of shorts you will own. So make Burro your trusty partner in chasing adventure every day.


Founded by graduate students at the University of Virginia, Shockley Nunnery and Casey Ward believe in products that are deeply rooted in quality, authenticity, and friendship.
