Great for daily wear and working out
on May 24, 2014
At this point nearly all of my boxers have been replaced by these Adidas strecth boxer briefs. For every day wear, even in a suit, they are ideal as they fit snugly and do not ride up. The waist band is a subtly enough design to feel comfortable even if someone does sneak a peek.
For working out I use these exclusively. I'm a distance runner and own a variety of running shorts both with built in support and a little more free hanging. I have never been a fan of compression shorts but these boxers do a great job of fitting snugly below any of my standard running shorts and they provide plenty of support without suffocating anything important. The seams all seem to be in the right place and chaffing has never been a problem even at marathon and ultra marathon distances.
Unlike other reviewers I do not have an issue with the quality. I do make a point of replacing on a regular basis (underwear is not one of my wardrobe items I expect to last for years) but even with a regular rotation it's months or even a year before I have ever had any wear issues, and again that's with both daily use and a substantial amount of running/sweat and only heavy duty washes for darks.
There are a few varieties of fabric options the Coolmax ( a 90% Polyester/10% Spandex) is a little more sheer and seems to not hold up as long but I prefer for the everyday/work clothes wear. This version (91% Cotton/9%Spandex) seems to be more supportive for me but also holds sweat more if that is a concern for you. My suggestion, try a few of both and see what works.
