To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wore these for my most recent full marathon, and they're just about perfect. They're not too big or too small, the zipper pockets are wonderful. I'm really particular about my running shorts - and especially the pockets! These aren't the kind of pockets that sway too much with a cell phone inside. While I didn't carry my phone with me during my last marathon, I was able to pack the pockets full of fuel needed for the entire distance. The zippers make sure I don't lose anything.
I've had these shorts through several loads of laundry, and they're holding up well. In my running clothes drawer, if I have a choice of all my shorts, I'll choose these. Definitely buying more.
Edit: My original review is now eight months old. The original black pair I purchased is holding up very well. Since then I purchased a red pair later last year and now I just bought two navy blue shorts. All of them are consistent in sizing and quality. They're my favorite shorts!
so I have multiple pairs of the Amazon essential men's basketball shorts unfortunately they were out of stock currently and one of my pairs of basketball shorts was completely ruined. I decided to go ahead and go out on a limb in order these I absolutely like them the zip-up pockets are also a really good feature to have they fill lightweight breathable and super comfortable for summer wear.
With so many options out there nowadays, unless it is a well known brand, it can be difficult to tell what type of product you will get exactly. These shorts have been a delight in terms of comfort, fit and durability. Great for working out or just lounging.
I’ve bought about 4 pairs now. Two black, one white, and one gray. They are great shorts all around. Comfy, wicking, fit well, and cheap. The only downside is after about 7-10 washes, the logo starts to strip off of the shorts. I’ve just torn it off and proceeded to use the shorts. You get what you pay for here I guess.
Agree with other reviewers that these seem small, but I wanted to add some clarity. I normally wear a large, and these stretch out and fit about like my other larges but with one caveat: the elastic is much stronger than my other larges. So while it fits similarly to other larges, it *feels* tighter because the elastic is stronger. But I'd say the stretch has similar expansion room as other similarly-sized shorts.
Overall feels like a decent quality and decent value exercise short.
when i first got these the material felt like heavy gym shorts, and not great for running. But the fit and trim ended up being really nice. Pockets are sizeable enough for my phone and some light nutrition packs. Being that the fit is not very loose, my phone doesn't bounce all over if I keep it in my pocket for a run - which is super nice. I plan to get another pair
