6 Pair of Workout and Running Shorts from Amazon Try-On

1. LRD Sweat Shorts for Men 7 inch Inseam Casual Athletic Pocket Jogger Shorts

Sometimes, my favorite pick from the Amazon Haul is also the least expensive from the Amazon Haul.

That's precisely what has happened on this Amazon Haul. When I put the LRD shorts on, I knew they would be the best of the haul.

These 100% polyester men’s workout shorts are made of excellent material and feel like high-quality running shorts, even more so when I put them on. The fit around the waist was perfect, as these shorts have one of the best waistbands I have ever seen on a pair of workout shorts. The waistband is a bit of a high waistband, with plenty of drawstrings, which gives a high-quality feel.

The length is a 7-inch inseam, but they fit me more like a 5 or 6-inch inseam, exactly where I want it to be.

Oh, and did I mention these shorts were the cheapest of the best men’s running shorts on Amazon? These workout shorts come in a few different styles, from solid to various prints.

I can’t recommend these shorts enough. These are my pick of the haul for the best workout shorts for men.

2. Oakley Men's Performance Rc Short

The Oakley Men's Performance Rc Short is an excellent pair of running shorts.

They are made with 100% polyester and have a mesh fabric built into the sides of the shorts, making them lightweight and breathable.

The fit is true to size, and they have an internal drawstring waistband for a secure fit. These shorts also have pockets on the back and sides, which is great for holding your keys or phone while running. The inseam on these shorts is about five inches.

The only downside to these shorts is the price; they are at the higher end of the spectrum for workout and running shorts. But if you’re looking for a quality pair of running shorts, these are a great option.

3. adidas Originals Men's Standard Adicolor Classics Trace Shorts

I have had some Adidas shorts in some of my other Amazon Hauls that I loved, so I had high hopes for these shorts.

Unfortunately, these running shorts didn't pan out for me.

The Adicolor Trace shorts are a brilliant blue (sky rush) with the classic adidas 3-stripes down the side. The material (100% polyester) felt fine, and the length was great, sitting at about a 5-inch inseam. The shorts also had an inside liner that was more of a swimming trunk type of liner, which I didn’t love.

My biggest complaint about these running shorts was just the fit. They felt oddly cut and sloppy. There wasn’t any form to them, in my opinion.

4. MIER Men's Workout Running Shorts Lightweight Active 5 Inches

The MIER workout shorts on Amazon look great. They state they have a 5-inch inseam and are high stretchy.

If these fit in real life the way they do on the picture on Amazon, I would be super excited. But as you know by now, the thing I am most excited about often ends up being not so great.

The length on these was great, and they were comfortable shorts. However, I didn’t care for the feel of the material (90% polyester, 10% spandex), and the fit was just awful.

There was too much material around the crotch area, which gave the shorts an overall baggy and sloppy look. I want shorts that fit better for the price, so these are a pass for me.

5. Superdry Men's Code Tech Short

I wasn't sure what to expect from the Superdry Code Tech Shorts. I am familiar with Superdry, but this product didn't have any reviews on Amazon, so I was entering into a bit of an unknown.

Lucky for me, the quality I have come to expect from Superdry totally came through on these shorts.

As soon as I took them out of the package, I could tell these were well-made, high-quality shorts. Putting them on, my expectations were exceeded. The 100% cotton shorts were a tad heavier than some of the other shorts I tried on, but not in a negative way. They just felt sturdy.

The inseam fit me more like a 7-inch inseam, so a bit longer than the other pairs.

The color was a little off, as I ordered the grey, and it was closer to white than I expected.

But overall, great fitting and feeling pair of workout shorts for men on Amazon.

6. LRG Lifted Research Group Men's Fleece Sweat Shorts

LRG is more of a lifestyle brand than a fitness apparel company, but these shorts intrigued me enough to give them a shot.

This pair didn’t work out for me. They looked like swimming trunks and felt like swimming trunks.

The overall quality of the shorts was just fine, but nothing that stood out to me. These were a pass.
