Mens Running Shorts

The great thing about men's running shorts is that they are extremely versatile. They lend themselves well to a number of different activities, including running or jogging. This type of men's clothing works for any indoor or outdoor sports, plus they look cool. That also makes it easy to put together a casual outfit ideal for going out with the guys, taking a trip to the beach, going for a walk in the park, or just lounging on the weekends. It all depends on the accessories, and there are plenty of those as well. Start by browsing for shorts from Nike or Puma, then think about putting together the perfect outfit for a sporty activity or a casual outing.

Need men's running shorts for jogging, marathons, running track, or running cross-country? It's important to choose the right athletic clothing for these kinds of activities. Pick out shorts that allow total ease and freedom of movement, especially around the legs. Look for lightweight items made of comfortable material, like mesh. They need to breathe, because that ensures runners don't get too sweaty or overheated while they are jogging. If need be, on colder mornings or evenings, pair shorts with a long-sleeved T-shirt and thermal pants or leggings layered beneath them.

The versatility of men's running shorts makes them ideal for other kinds of sports and outdoor activities, not just running or jogging. Browse the variety of comfortable, loose-fitting basketball shorts for sports like b-ball, touch or flag football, tennis, racquetball ball, or many others. Paired with a sleeveless T-shirt, a hoodie, and a pair of basketball sneakers, the look is also great for casual occasions. Hang with the guys, lounge around the house, or take a walk down the beach in a cool, casual ensemble.

The thing to remember about active menswear is that it needs to fit well for the given activity. Some functions call for a tighter fit, so look for shorts that cling to the thighs. Other times, baggy shorts best fit the bill, especially when a lot of sweating occurs. Running shorts are perfect as workout clothing in the gym or while working out around the house. To wear them at the pool or the beach, make sure to choose items with a drawstring waist for additional stability.

Always go with active clothing that is easily worn in different situations. Working out, playing games, or just chilling—all those functions lend themselves well to running and athletic shorts. Find the right style and the right fit from the selection of men's running shorts at Macy's.
