We’ve been trying our six of the Hurley 2018 FIFA World Cup National Team board shorts over the past week. Here is a summary of what we found with them.
– They are incredibly lightweight and comfortable. Indeed, they feel like you’ve got nothing on and will have you double checking to ensure that you do.
– They are quite eye-catching as you can see from our pictures taken on location in Florida. We found random admirers asking where to buy them.
– The soccer vibe is clear in the shorts’ designs. They let you show your love for the game or support for a team even while at the beach or pool.
– The drawstring on the shorts is among the best that we’ve seen. It is flat and extremely secure. There’s no need to worry about any of the Hurley 2018 FIFA World Cup National Team board shorts falling off.
– One of the reasons that the Hurley 2018 FIFA World Cup National Team board shorts are so comfortable is because they are unlined. However, even when they are wet there is no unwelcome exposure at the groin area.
– The Hurley 2018 FIFA World Cup National Team board shorts work well at the gym and even for playing soccer. We did both in them and couldn’t even tell that we were not wearing shorts specifically designed for either.
– These shorts fit true to size and spot on. They are sold by waist measurement as opposed to Small, Medium and Large. Get them in your waist size in order to ensure that you get the right fit.
