        Love Boden shorts. They look good and are comfortable enough for my 10 and 8 year old to pull them out of the closet. That said, we like the techno shorts a little more because of the softer elastic band at the waist.
        Color fades slightly but still looks good after a year. True to size.

          Bought these as replacements. The original pair was handed through three rough and tumble boys before the knees finally blew out. Hands down these pants are my 6 year olds favorite summer gear! Also cute enough for school.

              My younger son is very picky about his clothes, especially shorts and pants. He loves these shorts -- they are stylish, comfortable, and go with everything. He chose the grey with stars, size 7 (he is 6 now, will be 7 in a few months). These shorts look cute with everything and they get softer with each wash. Very durable -- I bought a similar pair for him three years ago at Boden (oversized) and he can still wear them, no holes in the knees! Very good quality.

                My boys love Boden board shorts, and these shorts do not disappoint! I bought my younger son the brown shorts with skulls and my older son the orange with stars. They were super excited! Comfortable and durable! These are a summer favorite in my household.

                The size 9 orange with blue stripes seem to run large, but my son is on the small side, so it could just be my perspective.

                  I have never been disappointed in the boys shorts for 7.5 years now. Always true to size, always durable and always picture perfect. My son is slim, and still fits in any short here because of the smartly adjustable waists. Very cute designs. Although I feel a little too thick for actually swimming, I think the board shorts would hold up well with occasional water fun. I can say nothing negative about this product!!

                      We bought the denim board shorts for my 6 year old. They are great quality fabric, substantial but soft. He loves them and says they are very comfortable. Boden has another winner!

                        I buy for two boys. The board shorts are easy for them to put on in our rush to leave the house for school. I like watching them run around in them. They look stylish.
