Nike 3.5" Modern Sport Training Shorts

nike modern sport mesh shorts, xs in black
style #453655   price: $30.00

I have owned these shorts for only one month, but I am getting that forward-thinking sadness that Kelly describes in her post, To Hoard, Or Not To Hoard? Since these shorts have been worn a lot already (last teacher day of school to clean my classroom, running errands, around the house, hanging out with family), I assume their life expectancy will be lower than most items in my closet, so I am considering buying another pair.

The material is so comfortable...they feel like basketball shorts. The pocket has no closure, however, I have been able to stuff my cell phone, keys, driver license, and credit card in there when I have gone to the grocery store.

I usually like to pair these with a J. Crew vintage cotton v-neck tee in xxs. My review here.

I originally bought these (found them at Sport Chalet) for the gym, but obviously they have found a wider range of uses. These have stayed dry when working out, but I must admit I have only worn them to the gym twice.

Approximate Measurements

size xs / measurements in inches
  • elastic band width - 13.25
  • side length - 9.75
  • inseam - 3.25*
  • pocket opening - 4
  • pocket depth - 5**

*These are called 3.5" because of the inseam length, but mine measure differently
**The pocket has a V shape at the bottom, which causes the width to become smaller at 4.25
