Also known as athletic shorts, shorts worn primarily by teenage boys and basic straight men who have no wardrobe. Likely paired with a tee shirt and name brand athletic shoes that are incredibly overpriced.

Worn by basic white boys and black thug boys. They usually wear it with white or black tube socks. With white Air Forces or Crocs. Mostly just straight men wear this item clothing. It's very weird and embarrassing to say the least.
Basketball shorts are weird and need to be cancelled.
