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 reduces carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to virgin polyester. Nike diverts an average of 1 billion plastic bottles annually from landfills and waterways.

  • Best running shorts ever!!!

    miguelm3906763 - May 02, 2024

    Just used this for training and the Eugene Marathon! Best running shorts I have ever had for long distance. I loved all the pockets. Used all of them for wipes, gum, gels, and ibuprofen. Zippers even held my giant Galaxy S24 Ultra which made it nice when I got water at the water stations. Am going to buy at least 2 more pairs before they sell out!

  • Multipurpose

    My multipurpose shorts! Casual wear, running, Muay Thai, hiking, and even swimming (not the best but gets the job done). Easy to opt for this pair whenever I travel. Only suggestion would be to consider wearing compression undies when applicable.

  • Nike, do better. Very disappointed

    Very disappointed. Loved the way these shorts look, so I bought both the black and purple colors. They’re so pretty that I didn’t want to ruin them with running and lifting, so only bring them out for casual wear. However, the fabric is especially weak and fragile. Ripped the back of my shorts and I don’t even know how it happened! Only wear these to class! Nike, do better with durability!
