Soccer shorts manufacturers started out with long hemlines and the length all the way to the knees.. that was way back in the 1950s. This was the original soccer kits made by companies back then.
In the late 1960s, Adidas began making uniforms and other apparel for Soccer teams, most notably starting with a track suit for the great Franz Beckenbauer. But only a few pairs of shorts were made. During the time between the 1940s and 1970’s the shorts started getting shorter.
By 1970 the soccer shorts were very short and then got even shorter in the 1980s!! It’s almost embarrassing how short they were. Just take a look at a few photos of Maradona or Cruyf wearing basically speedos!
It was the 1990’s when Adidas and other soccer clothing manufacturers began producing football shorts with longer hemlines, thank goodness. Today the shorts are what we would call “normal”, but we are sure that the 80s and 70s thought the same thing about their short shorts….
So let’s take a look at some of the hottest and most popular Adidas soccer shorts on the market today. We will only discuss soccer shorts.
