The Nike Tempo short can be seen on every college campus - and most every high school too. This is the short that every other company has made their own version too. It is made from a FITDRY woven microfiber and low-rise construction for high performance comfort. The tapered mesh side insets provide ventilation and allow for a full range of motion. You can make these your running short or just your running around shorts - they work equally well for both. The interlocking NC on the left leg is what sets this pair apart .
