New Balance 7 Inch Shift Short – our experience…

A great fit and really lightweight help the case for choosing the NB 7 Inch Shift Short.

  • Material: 86% Polyester and 14% Spandex
  • 7 inch inseam
  • Athletic fit
  • Bonded hem and notch
  • Bonded zip media pocket
  • Laser cut perforation pattern for venting
  • Reflective logo
  • Stretch woven for ease of movement

The media pocket will hold an iPhone 5, maybe a 6 and it’s zippered for extra security.

The shorts have no inner lining which means they dry fast but will need something underneath like a brief or leggings.

The laser cut ventilation holes on the leg is a really nice touch an aids ventilation. The fit is not restrictive and feels very giving whilst running.

In Conclusion

A great lightweight decent length pair of shorts that do need a pair of undershorts but would be great on Raceday. Materials feel nice and premium. If you don’t know where to turn for black shorts, these will be great.
