There are plenty of styles with pockets for the trails and a comfortable inseam that won't rub against you while you explore. 


Men’s and women’s shorts


From the comfort of mid-rise to the smoothed lines of high-rise shorts, there's a style for you. Try on a pair of classic Bermuda shorts, fitted for activity and fun, or grab a pair of versatile runner or biker shorts. You can match these black shorts with any tops and sneakers in your wardrobe.


We're always adding trending men’s and women’s styles, so keep an eye on new arrivals to see what other great fits we have.


Comfort at home and on the go


Ditch the denim shorts and cut offs for casual shorts that maintain comfort along with style. Sweat-wicking fabrics keep you cool and dry in the summer heat, and breathability is a must-have for active shorts designs. Our drawstring shorts let you perfect the fit, but we have small and large sizes to fit a variety of bodies. Check out our extended sizes in women's plus size and men's big and tall.


 The comfy fabrics of our cotton shorts and sweatshorts are great for everything from a day on the trail to lounging. Whether you’re backpacking or chilling, these men’s and women’s black shorts are ready to go with you.


Don’t forget you can give the gift of The North Face, even without knowing the recipient’s size or preference. A Gift Card lets them pick their preferred black shorts for their next trip, whether they want men’s or women’s styles, plus size, regular, casual or active.
