As soon as I saw these I had to buy every. single. color. Before this recent purchase, I owned about 5 pair of these in all different colors. I love these so much, that even though I already owned the red/black pair, I bought them again because the shimmer shorts are beautiful and a perfectly executed basketball short. I have had mine for over 10 years and they are still beautiful. But... I was disappointed when I got these because they switched up the formula. These are a thinner material and a less baggy cut. I guess it is an "update" or "refresh" to fit the current trends in basketball, but there was no way of telling based on the description. So if you have owned the Jordan Shimmer Short in the past, this is a notice to let you know these are not the exact remake of those. The trim, fit, and material is not exactly the same as before.
I grew up playing basketball from high school to college, to now as a coach. The Jordan Shimmer Short...I used to wear these in high school (2003-2007) and after YEARS of vulturing them on eBay and the like...NIKE BRINGS THEM BACK! That fact alone should tell you their durability. I never write reviews on anything but I can promise you these are the best hoops/workout shorts you’ll ever own. Buying every color that releases. #TheNostalgia
I had a pair of the OG Jordan Shimmer Shorts in jr high when they came out in the early 2000s. I got several more pairs in high school and college. Hands down my favorite shorts to work out in or wear casual ever since! Over the past 10 yrs, I feel Jordan shorts have gotten smaller, tighter and not near as comfortable. I still rock my OG shimmer shorts, but have been hoping Jordan would bring them back someday. This updated model is very close to original (see picture for comparison). It uses the same shiny material, has pockets big enough to spread your hand out inside, and fit loosely knee-length. I usually wear Large, but ordered an XL as well. The XL fit more comfortably, so I will be keeping the bigger size. Looking forward to wearing them everywhere! Thank you JORDAN! I'm hoping more colors will be released in the future!
