Our favourite sports shorts for running, the gym and beach activities
At Short Motivation we’re privileged to be in a position where we are sent and can test a wide selection of shorts designed for various purposes: beach, gym, around town, paddle boarding or running – we have waded through all the short-wearing possibilities. As a result, we believe we’re in a position to recommend shorts based on the occasion, accompanied by the reasons for their selection.
First and foremost, whilst we love shorts that look stylish, we will make recommendations based on the functionality an practicality of the shorts, incorporating the fit and fabric. For instance, the fit and flexibility of one short might suit the function of one action, but not the other. It’s important to pick a short that makes you feel comfortable, then you can consider the aesthetics such as colour, length and the clothes selection for your choice of short.
Sports shorts tend to look like they were designed for sports, but this is a changing market. Recent advances in fabric technology have resulted in stylish sports shorts you can potentially wear for having lunch in a resort restaurant, after spending the morning paddle boarding around the coast. It was Orlebar Brown who pioneered the “shorts you can swim in”, bringing a short to market which enabled the wearer to combine style with function.
