Not good for any with thighs bigger than twigs...going to have to take out the pant and wear my normal running boxers...never been disappointed with a decathlon product. Shame.

Very comfortable and light weight and Breathable

Using since 1 year for 10k to Half Marathon Distance , Split helps freedom of movement .

Amazing feel

Great for long runs

Awesome Alternative to Branded Shirts

I like the material and the design of the the Kalenji running shorts. They're comparable (if not better) to those of famous brands like Brooks, Adidas and Mizuno

Why not more readily available

Very pleased with the shorts, lightweight, quick drying and comfortable. Tried to buy another pair at two Decathlon stores on holiday but they did not have any in stock, had to buy a pair of shorts from another sports retailer. I was told by an assistant in Decathlon that all stores carry different stock items, very few have the full range.

Try on for sizing

Fits for 30-32 waist and comfortable loose. Medium was the right for despite the small looking ok.

Running away with it

These shorts are superb. Bought two pairs whilst training for a marathon and wore a pair for the race. No chaffing, they fit well and sit where they are meant to. Super light and comfortable and so bought another couple of pairs.

Good quality poor design

The shorts ride up on the inner thigh and chafe, I wish i had read previous reviews. Please stop selling this product.
