The P.40 Short by Winston

We don’t cover a ton of purely athletic-intended apparel here on Vanish. But when we come across a hyper-versatile piece, it’s incumbent upon us to let you know. We’ve been testing The P.40 Short ($40) by NYC-based startup Winston and we’re big fans. These shorts were designed by a pair of soccer-enthusiast friends who wanted a piece that could transition with them from street to sport and back.

The P.40 is an understated athletic short with deep side pockets and a secure zip back pocket that’s made out of durable, water resistant, 4-way stretch material. From our hands-on experience with the shorts, they’re not just good for soccer or the street. We’ve also used them for both short runs and long distance hikes and they’ve held up masterfully. We love their slim silhouette and the depth of the side pockets keeping your EDC in place. Not to mention, the 4-way stretch material is perfect for bouldering and scrambling.

They currently come in Black and Navy colorways and we’re very much looking forward to seeing what’s next from Winston. In the meantime, Vanish readers can enjoy 10% off The P.40 Short + free shipping using the code VANISH at checkout. And give Winston a follow on Instagram while you’re at it.
