TOP 5 BEST RUNNING SHORTS FOR MEN 2018

Warmer temps and sunnier days mean it’s time to bust out shorts for your morning or late afternoon run. You’ve got plenty of options to choose from if it’s time to upgrade, so be sure take a look at our guide to the top 5 best running shorts for men available for spring/summer 2018.

It sounds strange, but the perfect pair of running shorts should be practically un-noticeable as you wear them on the run, meaning they should have plenty of coverage, pockets, and most importantly, not chafe. We’ve all been there, nothing is worse than being on a run far from home in a piece of clothing that’s rubbing your skin raw!
