The New Balance Impact Run Luminous 6-inch Shorts are designed for athletic activities. They’re made of reflective polywoven materials dyed using a water-saving method and feature New Balance DRY technology that dries them quickly and wicks away moisture. 

These mid-rise shorts are form-fitting with a 6-inch length, but the snug fit may not be suitable for everyone. The shorts have small pockets for storing valuables, but they don’t have zippers, which may be a concern for some users.
