Nike Men's Shorts
Athletic shorts come in all shapes and sizes to perfectly fit every man. Unless you are choosing all-purpose shorts, it's worth considering what you want to wear your shorts for. When choosing Nike men's shorts, it's a good idea to think about your body type, comfort level and personal goals.
Different styles of Nike men's shorts
Nike sports shorts are cut to provide a comfortable fit during sports performance and endurance. Some styles feature a longer length in the leg and a relaxed fit, with drawstring or elasticated waist.
Combat shorts are typically made from hardwearing, breathable fabric and feature a variety of pockets, and button fly.
Cargo shorts are similar to combat shorts, but with less pockets and a drawstring waist.
Nike casual shorts vary in length and style. Some shorts have a streamlined shape and are cut for a close fit. Other styles have a loose or tailored fit.
Jogger shorts from Nike are generally cut long on the knee, in a loose or slightly fitted style.
Other men's short styles include extra long - that extend below the knee - and shorts that feature cuff detail.
The difference between cotton, cotton blend and polyester
Breathable cotton is the ideal fabric for hot weather. Although 100% cotton has a natural, softer feel it can be prone to shrinkage.
Not as breathable as cotton, this soft and light feel fabric is usually made up of a 50/50 cotton and polyester mix. Cotton blend garments maintain their shape and colour for longer.
Durable and hardwearing polyester is resistant to wrinkles and shrinking, and keeps its shape.
How to choose the right Nike men's shorts for you
Choose a style that fits and suits your body type, shape and size. Go for lightweight, breathable fabric with an elasticated waist that will help you enhance your performance or activity enjoyment.
