Dolphin shorts or Dolfins are a specific style of shorts for athletics. They are typically very short and were originally made from nylon with contrasting binding, side slits, and rounded corners, a style which was popular in the 1980s.
The name is a corruption of Dolfin, the American company that first produced the original running shorts in the 1980s. Due to their shortness, they are sometimes identified as a form of hotpants.
