These shorts, like many others, are made from 100% polyester. The Weave they use is a micro weave which allows improved air flow. This will lead you to a more comfortable session in training. You will notice that throughout all of your activities you are cooler and more comfortable than ever before. This product also has a large elastic waistband. This is typically seen in boxing trunks. It improves the fit and ensures that you will have room for the protective gear that you want to wear under them. They also have an adjustable drawstring hidden inside of the waistband. Naturally, this will improve the fit and feel of this product. All of the materials used are of top quality. While many trunks use polyester they are all different qualities. The polyester seen here is some of the best you could ask for and provides exceptional long wear and durability.


Sea shorts offer a more relaxed fit. This means that they will be a bit looser through-the-legs than many other pairs you may have tried in the past. They allow ample room so that you can wear protective equipment under them easily. The large elastic waistband will provide a secure fit around your waist. In addition, the drawstring tie inside of the waistband also improves the fit. They will stay securely in place while you work inside the ring, skip rope, work the heavy bag, or during sparring sessions with a partner. It has been noted from consumers that while the fit is quite secure you may still find that you are losing your shorts during grappling practice. You may want to find a pair of shorts geared towards mixed martial arts if you don't want to have to worry about this. One other note about the fit has to do with the lack of an opening at the legs. Due to the fact that this product does not have these slits in the sides you may notice restricted movement or you may feel as if these shorts are a bit tight.


The set of trunks is excellent in terms of breathability. While they use 100% polyester for the majority of these trunks, which is typical of boxing trunks, this one breathes better than most. The reason that they breathe better is due to the fact that they use a micro mesh polyester. This provides better air flow throughout all of the trunks. When your trunks permit air to move freely you will notice that you are cooler and drier than ever before. Another advantage of shorts made of polyester is the fact that they will wick moisture away from your body. You will no longer have to worry about uncomfortable jock itch or skin breakdown. The slightly looser fit also plays its role in breathability. Due to the fact that these don't hug your legs quite as tightly, they will be cooler. Overall, customers are impressed with the lightweight and comfortable nature of these trunks by Adidas.


Durability is one of the areas we commonly see consumers complaining about in the world of boxing trunks. When you spend long hours at the gym participating in high impact sports, naturally, you need clothing that will survive it. Polyester is an exceptionally durable material. It not only wears well but it also washes exceptionally well. Our gym clothes take a major beating when they're in and out of the washer and dryer all of the time. These ones will absolutely withstand the test of time.

You'll be able to easily use these shorts for the next several years without worry of busting seems or shredding material. Overall, consumers are more than pleased with the level of durability they get out of these shorts.


These shorts are styled similarly to old-school boxing trunks. The fact that they sport an exceptionally wide waistband is a key feature in promoting this. The length of them is also styled like an older pair of boxing trunks. This is because they are a bit longer. They come all the way to the knee. Another feature that is more a standard boxing trunk feature is the fact that they do not have a side slit to improve Mobility. Due to the fact that boxers don't kick they don't need to worry about whether or not their shorts will restrict their range of motion. You can wear these easily to move about the ring and not worry about your legs being restricted. There is ample room in them so that you can wear the protective gear that you need to while training or in sparring sessions.
