Just looking for some input on what shorts offer the right balance of not too baggy/low but also not ridiculously short. Thanks in advance.
I'm taller than you but I really am liking the Adidas lately, they run a wee bit big compared to Nikes, I have typical tennis player big quads and butt, they fit but aren't baggy, and hit above the knee but not so much that your various and sundries are in peril of making a guest appearance.5'11
Didn't think of trying Uniqlo.. I wonder if their clothes are more slim fit given they're a Japanese company. I weigh about 180 so some mediums fit me fine and other times they're a bit tight.Try uniqlo shorts. I'm 5'10 and medium seem to be perfectly balanced for me (maybe could've been just a tiny bit shorter), so you may want to check them out and see if they work for your build. Fila shorts have very deep pockets, as mentioned above, but I Find their cut too baggy.
