    Comments about Mens Brooks Podium Split Lined Shorts:

    I love this style of short and run in them all the time. This pair was a little bigger that the others for some reason though. All the pairs that I have are mediums but this medium ran large in the waist. Not sure what it was but these were just a little bigger than every other pair that I own.

      Good, simple, racing-style shorts.
      I believed when I bought them that they didn't have a key pocket, but they do - all the better.

        Have run in these for several years and can honestly say they are the best RUNNING short on the market. No they are not too short, some people don't understand the purpose of the split short. They hold up extremely well for being so lightweight. I have had Nike/Mizuno/Asics shorts, hands down these are the best for the $$$$.

          I have tried Nike running shorts and they just dont fit right but these ones from Brooks fit perfect and are quite comfortable for either a training run or a race.

                Perfect for any and every run (well, as long as it's not freezing.) Gives the freedom to run fast and feel the air rushing by you while still having clothes on, and of course the necessary support. Bought only one other style of shorts, in the last ~4 years since I discovered this one. And, of course, these baby's show of those sexy runner legs all the ladies love. They do love them, right? Yea, course they do!...

                      Hands down my favorite running short! Perfect fit, true to size, light-weight, and comfortable even on the longest of runs. The only thing that could make these better is a Gu pocket. Other than that, 100% spot on!

                        I love the high cut and loose fit of these running shorts. I have about six pair and it's all I wear for anything from track workouts to 50-mile ultramarathons. Really lightweight fabric holds up well, minimizes chafing, and I love the old-school white piping. reminds me of my high school CC days!

                          These shorts have a great retro look and deliver on everything that counts. I wear the shorts for basically every run (~50 mi/wk runner) I take in the summer, spring, and fall (I live in Minnesota). They allow great freedom of movement, they're lightweight, and they don't cause chafing.

                          They are definitely not for those who are afraid of wearing short shorts, but I've never noticed much of a reaction to them from others and personally think they look good.

                                    I have had this product for a few weeks and so far so good. They are very thin which concerns me a little on the durability but i will find that out in time. Other than that these are GREAT shorts.

                                      Probably the best shorts money can buy. Yeah they're shorts, but they're running shorts, they're supposed to be short. Very breathable, plus they make you feel fast, even if you're really not

                                        The perfect short-short. Too many shorts these days are afraid to have a true split to allow freedom of movement, but fortunately Brooks has this guy (as well as those other types). It's practically the only short I'll use, be it for a long muddy run in the hills, a short quick track workout, or a race. Basic Black is by far my fav, but, then again, come race day you can add that white stripe for that little bit of speed. I couldn't have designed a better short myself.

                                          all i could think when i got these is, "are you serious?" VERY SHORT SHORTS even for short short standards. It looked more like a hula skirt on me than anything, so i gave them to my brother and they happen to fit him much better. At least shipping was decent, they were here in time for my race, not that i used them, but still...

                                          These are truely made for running on race day since they are short. That's not a bad thing if that's what your're looking for. They are very light and wide at the thighs. They worked out well for me.

                                          Mens Brooks Podium Split Short. Fantastic product. I have a bunch of these and wear them everyday when I go running, and I also wear them for races. Very comfortable.

                                          These are truely made for running on race day since they are short. That's not a bad thing if that's what your're looking for. They are very light and wide at the thighs. They worked out well for me.

                                          all i could think when i got these is, "are you serious?" VERY SHORT SHORTS even for short short standards. It looked more like a hula skirt on me than anything, so i gave them to my brother and they happen to fit him much better. At least shipping was decent, they were here in time for my race, not that i used them, but still...
