How This Was Made

  • The recycled polyester used in Nike products begins as recycled plastic bottles, which are cleaned, shredded into flakes and converted into pellets. From there, the pellets are spun into new, high-quality yarn used in our products, delivering peak performance with a lower impact on the environment.
  • In addition to reducing waste, recycled polyester produces up to 30% lower carbon emissions than virgin polyester. Nike diverts an average of 1 billion plastic bottles annually from landfill and waterways.

Drifit shorts

Bought for my son. He says they are light weight and comfy for summer. Possibly material is a little thin. The only downside is there aren't any pockets.

Good shorts for soccer

Got these for my son as he needed all black shorts. He likes the fits and was happy these were not long like most basketball shorts. They seem a bit thin so we’ll see how well they hold up.
