Mens Basketball Shorts Frequently Asked Questions

Gym shorts are different from basketball shorts in that gym shorts are made for many different activities, whereas basketball shorts are specifically made for playing basketball. Gym shorts may include workout shorts, running shorts, compression shorts and even bike shorts. They’re typically cut fairly snug to the body. Basketball shorts are usually longer and looser than gym shorts to allow airflow and a total range of motion. Both kinds of shorts are typically made with breathable materials and moisture-absorbing techs, like adidas AEROREADY.
Men’s basketball shorts typically fall around knee length, with some above and some below. They’re also loose, for mobility and airflow. The long length helps players avoid having to tug their shorts down in the middle of a game. In the early days of the game, basketball shorts were knee-length tights. Over time they got looser and shorter, and then looser and longer in the ’80s. And now it seems the trend is going back to shorter. The point is: Find a fit that's comfortable to you, and bring your A-game.
Compression shorts or tights are a good layer to wear under your basketball shorts. They provide coverage and muscle support while promoting circulation. Compression shorts also help keep an even body temperature in the midst of stop-and-go games. They’re often built with performance materials and sweat-wicking techs like adidas AEROREADY. Basketball shorts are built loose and typically don’t have liners, so compression shorts are a good choice if you want a close-to-skin feel and stay-put fit with every move.
