When it comes to men’s shorts, the ongoing raging debate around the perfect inseam length dominates the narrative. Some swear by short shorts, others won’t be seen in anything less than an advanced pair, and others — the real purists — rarely veer from a classic 5-inch inseam. Why? Because a 5-inch inseam is a gold standard in men’s shorts and these New Balance Accelerate shorts just topped the table.

Choosing the right pair of shorts means thinking about your height, analyzing your calf-to-thigh ratio, and having a serious, deep think about whether you’ve really got the legs for it. Or, if that sounds too much, just bag a pair of 5-inch New Balance Accelerate Shorts and be done with it.

Created for running with streamlined performance technology, the Accelerate Shorts are wildly lightweight. Technical features include a drop-in pocket to the waist, zipped side pockets, and an internal brief. The design is made from at least 50 percent environmentally preferred materials, meaning recycled or organic content. Detailing is kept to a minimum with 3M hits to the thigh and waistline, making the New Balance Accelerate Shorts one of the most versatile cops as we move into spring and summer.
