      These shorts are great for my 4 year old because he can get them on and off by himself. I like the length of them - some shorts are so long they cover knees, and I don't like that look. These hit mid to lower thigh so I could see them being too short for older kids in the bigger sizes.

        Shorts are very comfortable- we did size up as these seem to run a smidgen smaller (and shorter)

          I bought these shorts for my son in two colors and they've both worn beautifully. They fall to mid thigh which was so nice to find versus longer shorts that seem so common and can look too big on toddler legs.

            Living in Texas, where we have 9 months of very warm weather my son wears mostly shorts. These are cute, comfy and go with a ton of his shirts and shoes.

              My 4 year old who likes "soft shorts" with an elastic waistband loves to wear these shorts and due to the fabric and design they look much nicer than his other comfortable choices. He is a very solid, 45lb guy and the 5 yo size fits perfectly right now. I wouldn't be afraid to size up even more for more room to grow, since the functional drawstring makes them more forgiving with regard to sizing.

                These shorts are very cute on my two boys, ages 6 and 9 (I bought sizes 7 and 10 -- the waist is a little loose but there is a drawstring that works well). The blue and yellow colors are both really nice, the blue more electric and the yellow mustard with a naturally dyed look that will probably fade nicely over time. The shorts are pretty short and very lightweight, good for very hot weather and practical for summer camp. They have a slightly old-fashioned look, remind me of what we wore in my childhood (in a good way).

                    I bought a size 5 for my 5 year old. They might be a little bit of a snug fit but I think that is part of the style. A little bit shorter than some of his other shorts. Blue and white stripe is more cream colored than I expected. They are very cute for little boys. Overall, I am happy with this purchase.

                      This is the 2nd year I have ordered this short - 2 pairs each season . The quality and color remain in great shape, he can still wear the ones from last year. I like these shorts because they are actually short! They are above the knee. All the shorts are so long now they may as well be pants.These are cooler for the weather and easy to play in. I also like the clean line styling -no cargo pockets etc. they do have set in side pockets to hold a few things.The fabric is durable with a nice soft sheen finish, and washes well. I will continue to order and look for this type of styling from Boden.

                        These shorts are wonderful for my tall, skinny 2yo! Most shorts look terrible on him, they are too baggy, difficult to keep on his waist-- not so with these shorts! They actually fit his waist (elastic band) and are cut more slim than most shorts so they don't look like clown pants on him. I love them! The red color is a nice, slightly faded color that is perfect for summer.
