These are great "soccer" shorts. They have pockets so I used them for the gym. I always wanted a soccer short I can also wear at the gym. They are very light and breathable. I got a small, and they do fit a bit loose around the legs, which is fine for a soccer short. The waistband doesn't have a cord, so it's definitely tight, but I got used to it. The material is a little rigid, nothing serious. I would buy them again if they had a different color.
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.
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.
These shorts are good looking, a great length and lightweight. If you need white soccer shorts these are very good quality. This is the lightest fabric Adidas offers and it is a bit see through, but so are every other white pair we've tried.
I'm 5'11 but only 124 lbs, I prefer small for bottoms and usually my shorts ride low because of my weight but these ride up a lot. I had to buy compression shorts for these so I wouldn't show anything unnecessary. I wear these for running, volleyball and basketball, so 3-4 days a week for multiple hours. They're soft and they never get heavy from the sweat my legs produce. They stay nice and cool as well, plus they hold up really well after a wash, their color is still as good as new. Besides the fact that they ride up (not as in the crotch giving you a wedgy, but the waistline just likes to rise), I would recommend these shorts. The blue and black shorts are good colors, probably going to get the green ones next as it's my school color. I tried to upload some pictures so you could see the color and fit of the small on my body frame, but the pictures are kind of blurry.
I buy from adidas a lot and these shorts are tight. I'm 5'7" and I wear a small or extra small in everything and I found the small to be a bit tight compared to other shorts I have bought from here. They ride up a bit when running. The quality and colors of the shorts are great.
I have larger thighs so if I buy average shorts, they tend to ride up and look like underwear. These are roomy and long enough that if they ride up, they still look presentable. I can even run in them, something I can't do in most shorts. However, I have a pair of Tiros and those are way too long for me because I'm only 5' 3". If you're on the tall side and want long shorts I recommend those instead.
Our soccer team switched to a new color of shorts for this season. So that only gave us one pair so that is why we needed to purchase more. My daughter loves the women's style because the are shorter than the usual unisex shorts they get. She finds them very comfy and the wash up great. Thanks!
The shorts themselves are FANTASTIC! However, I ordered them in white and they are COMPLETELY see through. I have tried wearing nude panties, but my skin still shows through. I have also tried to wear spanks or other shapers in nude, but even a sheer pattern is visible. I would recommend the shorts, but just not in the white.
I have always loved wearing adidas gear including shoes, but I expected these shorts to be a little longer in length. According to the description, they were what I was looking for. I'm a 53 year women who loves working out at the gym, the last thing I want to worry about is my shorts riding up. Now a days a lot of the gear that's being made is made for 20-30 year olds. I just wanted comfortable work out clothes. I'll still wear them though but I'll be careful.
Purschased these for my wife to wear to work out with. She prefers a longer short than what is offered with most woman's running shorts. These 5" short fit the bill perfectly! They offer great range of motion, and are very light weight and breathable!
I've recently started dieting and exercising and needed new shorts for out door work outs, these are so comfortable and fit great. I love the material. My only complaint is the "Black" Z49286 shorts with the blue stripes are not Black but are actually navy blue. I was hoping to pair these shorts with a few t-shirts that are black with a blue highlight but oh wells it is what it is... the shorts are still comfortable.
I have always loved adidas Squadra shorts... but this year they seem much shorter than in previous years. The fabric quality is still very good and I love the adidas brand, but I had to return these and find an alternative product (adidas Youth XL fits similarly to adult small and the Youth XL shorts are long enough)
