These shorts have a big white band at the bottom, one that didn't look as prominent online. I wanted shorts that were more plain, and the online photo didn't make it seem they were decorated so elaborately. I returned them.
This shirts snags/rips the first time your little one gets stuck somewhere. You literally just have to fall down once on dry grass and it snags. I have bought many, many soccer shirts in my life and this is the only fabric that doesn't survive a single game. Our entire club used this last season and everybody had the same problem. Today I saw one snagged in the store!!! They don't even make it out of the store looking new!
I got 2 pairs for my son. He wears them to soccer practice and around the house all the time. They look great, the color is vivid, the material moves and wear well. All around awesome shorts. Add the Drydye environmental friendly dye process, makes you feel as good about buying them as you do wearing them.
