A mid rise and mid length short! Waistband curves down in center front and curves up in center back for maximal coverage during full range of motion. Top of waistband sits right above the hips, slightly higher cut rise than our classic Champion Shorts style. A 5" inseam provides all the comfort and coverage you could want. Usually the issue with a short this length is having them ride up! So we've added a subtle silicone clear gripping finish on the inside of the leg hems. This will ensure these stay in place for all kinds of movements, stretching and long runs!
