Men's Running Shorts
A comfortable pair of men's running shorts is a must if you're going to be running mile after mile in them, whether you're running a 5km or an ultra marathon. At onsport.com.au we offer a hand selected range of men's running shorts that are designed and manufactured with performance in mind. Irrespective of whether you are running for fun, training for an event or running an event, you'll want a stylish pair of men's shorts that fit you well and allow you to run long distance in complete comfort and without an issues.
Things to look for when buying men's running shorts are: length, style and comfort and colour.
Running Short Length
Men's shorts online are available in an array of lengths, including your traditional men's 3 inch running short with the side split - popular from the 70's right through to today, 5 inch shorts and the longer 7 inch shorts. The ideal length short for training for a running event is either the 3' running short or a 5' running short. If you like a little leg coverage or if it's a little colder, the men's 5 inch running shorts are your best option. If want freedom to move and aren't afraid of rocking a short pair of men's lightweight running shorts and if you're looking for a short to race in, you should consider buying the 3 inch men's running shorts. Whilst you can technically run in a 7 inch running short and we don't see an issue with training in the longer, baggier 7 inch shorts, you probably want a shorter short to run in on race day.
Comfortable Running Shorts
There are a couple of things to look out for when considering buying a pair of comfortable men's running shorts.
The first element is the fabric. Ideally you want moisture wicking run shorts for men that are typically made out of either 100% polyester or the more premium performance shorts will be made out of a polyester/elastane blend, providing the run short fabric with a little stretch or 'give'.
Second you'll want a waistband which is comfortable and fits. Again there are a variety of comfortable running short waistbands, including running shorts with elastic waistbands, running shorts with a waist cord built in and your standard running short without a cord or waistband tie.
Thirdly, available to buy are running shorts with pockets, whether they are a hidden pocket on the inside, side pockets or a zip pocket on the back of the shorts and running shorts without pockets.
Lastly you can shop running shorts with built in undies or running shorts without undies built in. There's a lot to consider when buying a comfy pair of men's running shorts, so we've made as many of these options available to you in a variety of styles to ensure you have your most comfortable run ever!
