I purchased these shorts for many reasons, the first was comfort. Owning a older pair of a different style, i wanted to try these out. The second was the durablity of these, being in this art since 1998, and being in competitions. I knew that they had to stand up to a beating, which they do!
They have a tie waistband AND velcro closure as well, so they aren't going to come off on you! They are very flexible and don't restrict your movement at all.
I purchased the White as most other people go with the black, after having these for about two or three years, they are still very white and haven't lost much of the color.
The price is a little high, but again you are buying quality along with the name. So for the price, it is worth it, but if your looking for something on the lower end, i would buy a different brand.
