Made in the USA

We're stoked to present our Norse-inspired Lewis Chessmen Athletic Shorts.

These athletic shorts are handcrafted from 100% premium microfiber polyester – for extra softness and durability.

Perfect for an early morning jog, a weights session at the gym, or a dip in the ocean. Featuring a vividly rendered design by a professional apparel artist, they look so stylish that you might just start wearing them everywhere.

WHAT MAKES THESE SHORTS UNIQUE?

  • 100% microfiber polyester. Softer, more comfortable, more lightweight, and more durable than most athletic shorts you’re used to.
  • Elastic waistband, drawstring, and side pockets. Everything you need for a perfect workout.
  • Especially suitable for boxing and martial arts.
  • Moisture-wicking, antimicrobial fabric means the shorts stay dry and stench-free during sweaty gym sessions.
  • Printed using dye-sublimation and eco-friendly inks. You’ll enjoy vivid, long-lasting colors and tones.
  • Our designs are inspired by themes from Viking and Aztec mythology, Polynesian history, and more. Extra inspiration when you go for a run!

As soon as you place an order, we’ll start creating your new shorts by hand. It takes us about 7 days to finish everything and add the final touches. When the shorts are ready, we’ll send them anywhere in the world so you can start training at full strength.

Artist Bio - Self taught Italian artist currently based in UK. My biggest passions, interests and inspirations are nature, animals and traditional norse culture and designs. Most of my works are based on historical artifacts from the Viking age.

Artwork Description - The design is inspired to three of my favourites of the Lewis' chessmen pieces. Artifacts that were found in Scotland but probably were made in Trondheim, Norway, about AD 1150-1200. The enchanting chess pieces consists of elaborately worked walrus ivory and whale.

Cool, but...

Decent quality shorts, decent quality printing, but I am disappointed that the print of the fabric is not as shown-- if I had known the placing of the print was variable, I would not have bought this item. I was pretty excited to gift my boyfriend some shorts depicting the chesspiece who's biting his shield, but the print cuts off and only shows the figure with the crown.
