If you train in kickboxing or Muay Thai, you'll want to get yourself some Muay Thai shorts. These particular style of shorts differ from MMA shorts due to their extra wide cut legs and fully elasticated waistband, some of which include a drawstring waist too. Many pairs of Thai shorts are decorated in contrasting colours, usually bright ones, and feature appliqued Thai language script decoration. Usually made from satin or similar smooth fabrics, the Thai shorts are light, offer enhanced breathability and allow for unrestricted leg movement, ideal for high kicks used in the sport. Popular brands of Thai shorts include Thailand-based brands Twins and Fairtex.
