The ASICS men's SILVER 5IN SHORT running shorts offer durability, comfort and convenience to male runners of various levels.
The shorts' soft, lightweight woven fabric means there's nothing holding you back from running further or faster than ever before. Comfort is also a top priority. For starters, the SILVER 5IN SHORT features an inner brief to reduce chafing. It also comes with an elasticated waistband with flat drawcord for easy adjustability, making it simple to achieve that often elusive 'right fit'. Finally, a split at the side contributes to enhanced freedom of movement.
As an added bonus, these running shorts also come with a spacious hidden pocket inside the garment in which to store personal items, as well as reflective ASICS branding for extra visibility when running on the road.

Size up, then great!I recommend to size up unless you have extremely skinny thighs. And even then, you're probably using smaller size already usually, so my guess is almost everyone should size up on this one. At least, if you have bigger than average thighs you really have to size up unless you want to look like you're wearing too small shorts. I initially bought size M but I had to change it to L. Now the L feels exactly the same as my other ASICS size M shorts.
With correct size these shorts are perfect. The fabric is really soft, light and comfortable. Well, I'm not sure if there's a little difference to MotionDry and similar models or is it just because this model might have a little bit thinner fabric, but in more chilly weather the inner brief feels a bit cold at first when you start to sweat. That feeling goes away though when your body gets warmer. And you do feel warm even after your run so these do breathe well and handle moisture even though the product info doesn't mention about it. I'm sure these would and will be excellent from the start in warm weather. So, an excellent model, I think. I like these.
The 5 inch length is between the traditional 3 inch and longer 7 or 9 inch. Definitely not in your way for fast and long running, but looks a bit like the longer models still. So this is a "short longer model". Great for any type of running exercise. I do recommend these. You will like the soft and light fabric.
