I have a pair of the previous variation of the Supernova 5-inch shorts, back when they made them under the Climacool design. The original Climacool Supernovas are perfect and better than these newer ones: better material, better design, better colours. Don't get me wrong, these newer Supernovas are good, and fit pretty much the same. It's just a difference in materials and style. They have a liner which fits not too tight, a tiny zip pocket that fits a few coins or a key, and reflective material on the sides and butt. The black is more jet and shiny than matte and grey-black.
I love these shorts, being a 32 waist and 5'10 in height I ordered a Small size. They are a perfect fit, the reflective side panels have yet to be tested due to not having an evening run as yet. I run 7 days a week so I have about 3-4 pairs of shorts. These by far are the most comfortable.
I needed a new pair of shorts, simply because I've got that many different colour running tops and shoes, the 5inch solar blue shorts I had didn't really match in with my new sequence running shoes.. the shorts themselves fit really nicely, no rubbing on the inside leg over short distances so far.. will be using them for several 10K runs in the next few months, so they will get a good test. Even with the length a bit longer at 7inches and there being no side-split, there's still enough room for movement. Should you have chunkier thighs, they shouldn't be a problem. There's a small side pocket, useful for your car key when you're running solo at an event. There's a draw-string at the front, but not really needed by myself - I bought the medium and I'm pretty trim in the waist area so don't have any issues with the shorts moving any lower. I can't give 5 stars to this product though, as there are just not enough colour options. Adidas need to start making shorts in more colours.. I would have liked white with a solar blue 3-stripe, or white with a solar red 3-stripe.. and other additional colours e.g. red, orange, yellow, green, grey etc.. would be more welcome - please take note Adidas!
How difficult can it be to find a pair of running shorts that do not cover half or the entire upper thigh? Not easy, I think they must have gone out of fashion. But then I found these 2.5" inch split shorts at our local Adidas Store. They are comfortable to wear: light and with a perfect fit. And they have a nice neutral look with a quality feel.
