The shorts are made with Nike's Dri-FIT material. The Dri-FIT material is a breathable, quick drying lightweight material, that wicks sweat and moisture away from the body, so you always are kept dry and comfortable. It works by distributing sweat and moisture equally around the material and thereby increasing the body's natural chilling system. The shorts have mesh stripes, which runs along the side. The mesh stripes are elastic and will expand when the player is in motion, and thereby the air ventilation will increase.
