Basketball shorts for men with high performance engineering

We use all our experience of working with elite teams and players to produce basketball shorts for men that can take the pace all the way from street courts to the high-intensity college or pro circuits. We use a tough, durable polyester double knit ripstop jersey fabric to prevent tearing, with strategically placed polyester mesh inserts to create a cooling effect. This extra breathability in our men's basketball shorts makes a huge difference to your comfort, and the fabric also has a sweat-wicking effect that promotes fast sweat evaporation.

Keep your basketball shorts in top condition

The modern materials we use in our men's basketball shorts not only improve your on-court performance, they also take most of the hassle out of caring for them. They require nothing more than a cold machine wash with a mild detergent – but don't use a fabric softener. After that all you'll need is a cool iron if there are any noticeable creases you don't like. They're essentially designed as wash and wear shorts, making them really easy to maintain.
