This cut of shorts takes me back to tour managing for my buddies band in 2005. I remember seeing August Burns Red play with The Bled and Hardcore Dancing was hitting the scene. For those of you too young or confused it was a bunch of dudes in Mesh basketball shorts, vans, bandana over the face, and random black tee minus sleeves. These guys would kinda "mosh" but imagine a crowd of people that look like they are fighting invisible bad guys just far enough away form each other to not get hurt. Was wildly entertaining to watch. While that shit was bonkers, the shorts are still awesome and comfortable. These are knee length 9" inseam and ready to dish out some pain.
