I don't like shorts. I have MAYBE 6 pair. 1 running, 2 of those cotton kind that I wore (still wear) to volleyball practice in middle/high school/college, and 3 pair (2 of which I don't wear) of casual shorts. I just hate them. Give me a pair of running pants any day over a pair of shorts.Today I ran in shorts. I have a pair of Nike running shorts. I don't hate them for hanging around the house or a Target run but not to run in. Don't get me wrong, I like the material, they have a millions colors, they stay cool, they have built in undies and a small key pocket, but they are not the shorts to bring me to the dark side. However, if you are a shorts person I would recommend these shorts.
