Men's ADIDAS® RESPONSE 5" SHORT :: Stride comfy and feelin' free when you run in the Men's adidas® Response 5" Short. You'll stay cool and dry mile after mile thanks to this short's lightweight fabric and superior moisture management. You'll move with ease in the shorter length, and feel safer when you stride after sundown thanks to the Response Short's reflective detailing.
Adidas products are typically very good and these shorts are no exception. They are very comfortable and not too short - some 5" shorts tend to be on the "barely 5-inch" length while these provide the full 5 inches at the seam. While I'm not super-modest I do prefer to wear 5-6" lengths and these fit the bill well. And looks? Well, did I mention they're Adidas? Yes, they look great. The yellow stripes for those interested is a bright, almost neon yellow (the photo in the ad didn't do them justice - much better looking than I was expecting). And they are very cool & comfortable - great for races!!
Perfect 5 inch running short
This was my foray into a 5 inch short after running in 7 inch shorts the past several years. I was looking for a short with less fabric for those hot days. The large fit perfect for my 6'2'' frame with skinny legs - not at all baggy like other 5 inch shorts that must have been designed for guys with legs like tree trunks. The zipper pocket in back fits two gel packs for races. These are my new favorite running shorts.
My favorite short
I've been wearing the 5" Response for 10 years and love these shorts. I am a hands free runner and the small back pocket (now side) is great for carrying a few nutritional items.
