By the looks of it, this spring is gonna be a sporty one: underwear brands are infusing athletic inspired designs with flat out athletic apparel for a new crop of [really awesome] athletic underwear. Pulled straight from the playing field, these designs are equal parts masculine and fashionable. Stripes, color blocking, fabric and cut are all being used to give you a sporty profile and varsity appeal.
And though these underwear aren’t what you’d grab for a 10-mile hike or game on the court, they’re most definitely not bad options for light athletics. Throw them on before you head to the gym to give yourself one up on the competition, or put them on under your jersey shorts for your quick evening jog.
What you’ll notice in the athletic underwear picks below are low rises and leg flattering cuts–a perfect combination for men that want to show off the results of their hard work at the gym or on the field. You’ll also notice an array of reds, whites blues and greys – the perfect group of colors for the winning hometeam.
Check out the spring’s stand-out athletic underwear below and let us know if you’ll be sporting these guys in the locker room anytime soon.
