Men's running shorts: freedom to achieve
Whether you're pounding the pavements, hitting the trails or lapping the park, our men's running shorts help you push your limits with every stride. Nike Flex fabrics are built to move when you do, so they hold their shape as you run. High-performance materials wick away sweat and keep you cool, no matter how hard you train. Expect designs with minimal seams that reduce irritation, so you stay clear and focused. Plus, adjustable cords give you a secure, supportive and flexible fit.
Keep cool with performance materials
Nike men's running shorts help you stay cool and fresh so that you can push your limits. Lightweight, breathable fabrics allow you to move, stretch and stride towards your goals. Look out for our exclusive Dri-FIT technology, which moves sweat away from the body for rapid evaporation. Our athlete tracking research has allowed us to model the parts of your body that heat up the most. That's why we've added ventilated panels to give extra cooling exactly where you need it.
Hit the ground running
With their lightweight feel and minimal designs, our men's short running shorts are ideal for urban workouts and races. You'll find cool, breathable materials, so you stay fresh and confident from the start to the finish line. Side-split hems give you the freedom to lengthen your stride, while inner drawstrings ensure that nothing gets in your way. For extra visibility in limited light, choose shorts with specially designed reflective elements.
Running shorts for the great outdoors
Our men's long running shorts are designed for the outdoors, so you can perform at your best – even when the temperature rises. Extra coverage gives you protection from foliage and greenery, while breathable materials ensure you stay cool and fresh in the heat. Look out for 2-in-1 running shorts with stretchy outer fabric and an internal liner for unbeatable movement and support.
Keep it sustainable
At Nike, we're committed to winning the race against climate change. Look out for men's running shorts made with recycled polyester. Re-used poly creates 30% lower carbon emissions compared to virgin material – and diverts 1 billion plastic bottles a year from landfills and waterways. 100% of our cotton is now organic, recycled or grown as part of the Better Cotton Initiative. The result? Every year, we re-use more than 680,000 kilograms of cotton, take care of our soil, and respect the rights of workers and farmers.
Showcase your personal style
Our running kit looks as good as it feels. That's why Nike running shorts for men come in a range of styles and designs. Choose bold primary colours for a stand-out look, or pick shorts in black or white for classic style. Block colours keep things clean-cut, while striking prints add maximum impact. Whether you're looking for discreet or eye-catching designs, we've got you covered with running shorts from Nike.
