Avoid – Champion C9 Shorts

I bought a couple pairs of these shorts at Target because they looked decent (although, definitely not high-end). Immediately after running 7-10 miles in them, I had a raw spot from the waistband stitching. Eventually, I learned to make the best of that (wear them only on shorter runs). However, the lining quickly started tearing away from the waistband, so they’re not really reasonable to wear anymore. I love my Reebok running shorts (all styles) and would recommend them despite being more than twice the price of the Champion shorts. The durability alone is worth it.
