We’d say it’s almost shorts season, but let’s be real — kids will want to wear shorts when it’s negative 12 degrees and icy outside and argue that it’s “not that cold.” Whether you’re the type of parent who relents with a shrug (let ’em get frostbite on their knees, they’ll learn!) or the type who will fight this battle until your very last breath (shorts! are! for! summer!), your kid will need a couple new pairs of shorts in their wardrobe at some point in the year.
We have to admit: we’re firmly on Team Shorts. If you think about it, a good pair of sporty elastic-band shorts are the unsung heroes of a kid’s wardrobe. They require minimal effort to get on and off. They allow for maximum movement. There are no knees to get ripped or grass stained, and unless your kid grows like six inches in a year, it takes forever for them to get to the point of “too short.” (And when they do, you can just hand them down!)
So honestly, we’re pretty excited about the hot deal on Under Armour shorts going on right now at Amazon — some of them are less than $11 at the moment! We’re stocking up for our kids, and you’ll want to do the same.
Machine washable, light weight, sweat-wicking and fast drying, roomy and comfortable, with pockets to hold whatever it is your kid decides to put in there, these shorts are the G.O.A.T. — and as a bonus, they’re a brand that kids still think is cool. So whether you agree that all weather is shorts weather or you’re stocking up for summer, there’s no better time to grab a pair (or five!).
