Non- allergic short liner

I seem to have developed a sensitivity to the liners of the cheap cycling shorts I have. I'm thinking of splurging on a pair of good shorts with better padding. When I look at the ads on the internet I get confused. Some say they have a chamois. Does that mean it's natural leather? Because that's what I think I want.

I usually wear baggy mtb shorts, but I'm thinking of getting a pair of regular tight cycling shorts that I can wear alone or under a pair of regular street shorts.

Any suggestions?

No 30 years ago they were phasing out the real skin.

the 'shammy' is a synthetic material by Now.

I have some Etxe Ondo bibs I bought in 2005 that have the real chamois. The newer ones have fake.

I think the key phrase in the original post is "cheap cycling shorts".

Get some decent quality shorts and give them a try.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
