Fits well around waist, no pockets, constricting?
on December 7, 2014
It fits well around a 28" waist, in fact it may even be tight on me. It ends 3/4 down my thigh, so it's by no means a general "gym short" cut but rather more of an athletic runners short cut (which is what I wanted.)
It did not come with pockets, the adidas stripes on the side are kind of misleading as you'd expect there to be hidden slits where the pockets would be, but there are no pockets.
I felt it constricting around my package. I felt like the shorts were cut for a woman in some ways. Because of this, I believe the designers had in mind you would wear compression shorts(package support) with these shorts.
Overall, I believe these shorts would best suit runners with clip-on mp3s/phone accessories.
Unfortunately for me, I was expecting a casual athletic short with a great fit to wear at the gym but instead got these... decent... shorts instead.
