  • Fabric Type: Twill
  • A durable fabric characterized by micro-diagonal ribs, producing a soft, smooth finish
  • Performance Technology: adidas® CLIMACOOL®
  • Provides cool comfort in even the hottest of conditions. CLIMACOOL® actively conducts heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of heat- and moisture-dissipating materials, ventilation channels, and three-dimensional fabrics that allow air to circulate close to the skin.
  • Performance Technology: adidas® FORMOTION®
  • The radical cuts and three-dimensional engineering of ForMotion® create shaped garments that follow the curves of the body and mimic the motions of sport for better fit, greater comfort, and amplified freedom of movement.
  • Ergonomic Cut/Seaming: Yes
  • Seams and/or design lines of the garment follow the body's curves to allow freedom of movement and prevent skin irritation.
  • Moisture Wicking: Yes
  • Fabric transfers moisture from the skin to the fabric's surface for quick evaporation, keeping you dry and comfortable.
  • Reflective: Yes
  • Provides visibility in low-light conditions through the use of reflective fabrics, yarns, tapes, trims, or heat transfers.
  • Ventilation: Yes
  • Mesh or breathable fabric inserts in high heat zones allow sweat to evaporate and cool air to circulate.

Comments about adidas Men's Supernova 5"" Running Shorts:

Lightweight and quick-drying, the shorts are fine for the gym. However, lacking cotton or subdued colors and designs, they would look too athletic for much more formal settings. My main concern is the flimsy material, especially the webbing and waistband, even more so than previous Supernova stock. The label instructions calling for cold/delicate washing are restrictive, particularly for sweaty clothing. So far, a "permanent press-medium" level of washing seems to be sufficiently gentle. Hopefully, over time, wear and tear from such washing will be minimal. As for drying, the required delicate cycle does not completely dry the shorts. Hang-drying, however, completes the process within a day, given the type and weight of the material.

      Using these for working out and they are great. Very lightweight and breathable. I can do any exercise without restriction of any kind. Hardly know you have them on. The Adidas Formotion brief inside is great too.
