      These are the best boy shorts ever. We've ordered them repeatedly through the years. They are very comfortable with the soft waist band and a real drawstring to get just the right fit for my skinny boy. They are long enough to cover the knees which helps avoid skinned knees. Very durable, love all the colors. Really could not be any better.

      unfinished hem

          Best Uses

            I bought these for my son who is starting kindergarten. He has another pair of Boden short pants that are great - Tough and comfy enough for play but nice enough for school. I just don't like the unfinished hem on these shorts - it looks too sloppy.

              My 8 year old son wore these every week last school year in all kinds of weather here in Colorado. He's a little furnace so don't like to wear pants. He loves the waist band -- no buttons. He's 9 yrs old now and I just realized these shorts are fine for another year. He is tall and lean... 22" waist, 55" tall, 68 pounds.

                  This is the second summer I bought these shorts for my son and I couldn't be happier with them! They are durable, but still soft, wash well, and super cute! I got two pairs last summer as well as this summer and they are always what I pick out first to wear. I love the elastic waistband too for easy on and off which is critical during those potty training months. I will continue to buy these shorts for my son year after year.

                        The rib waist shorts are first choice for comfort here. We purchased a pair last year and liked them better as they had a regular hem. These have fringe. No biggie, just more casual.

                          The color choices are excellent. These do not slide down like most regular shorts and pants. My son likes to wear them and never complains about pinching or using a zipper because they have a nice wide elastic waistband.

                              These are the perfect shorts for boys .... They are so soft and comfortable, yet incredible stylish. You can dress them up or down for a casual look. I will be buying another pair for my 6 year old! Thanks Boden!
