Cannot Recommend - Expensive & Uncomfortable
After reading numerous positive reviews of this product, I recently purchased a pair of Step-One trunks in 'Juicy Plums' colour. (Order #515301) I was initially impressed by Step-One's site and their claims about the bamboo material the they were made from.
Unfortunately, as I only purchased one pair as a trial, and of course they're now in a worn condition, I can no longer return them and/or get a refund. This is of concern to me, particularly as at $29 these trunks are very expensive compared with the cotton Jockey trunks I usually buy for...half that price. I'm also concerned that no mention is made of the Step-One's bamboo production process; are the toxic chemicals sodium hydroxide and carbon disulphide, which have been linked to serious health problems, used in this product? From a wearer's perspective, I was also disappointed. The waist band tends to roll over at your abdomen (and no, I don't have a beer gut LOL); the fabric has a "slimy" feel, unlike the softness of cotton; it feels as though you're wearing pantyhose (I imagine); the so-called comfort pouch tends to let the family jewels bang around; the fabric itself is very thin; and after repeated sitting/standing movements, the legs gradually sneak up your thighs. I used Step-One's sizing guide, which 'seems' appropriate, and purchased the 2XL size for my 112cm waist. I can only think that their sizing charts are overly generous, as I now believe that the Extra Large would've been a better fit, and possibly negate the leg creep.
Bought 4 pairs, need to buy some more. They are the most comfortable underwear I have ever worn. You certainly notice the difference. I would like them to be a bit cheaper though.
Fabulous! Husband loves them.
These totally live up to the hype! Husband loves them so much that we now have every colour. Awesome choice of colours rather than the std black, white, grey. Fast delivery and good customer service. Highly recommend.
Wonderful product, only have one complaint..
Very comfy and well made the colours are great too. I bought them mainly because of the environmental considerations, but the compostable packaging is negated by posting it in a plastic bag..
Good as gold!
Bought a pair as a test for my husband. I have bamboo underwear, and it is the best. So I thought he should try it. Received the boxers and had a "fashion parade". I have to say, my man, who is now 82, looks as good as the blokes advertising them on TV. But more importantly, he loves the comfort of them. We both had a win here, he looks great in them, and they are comfortable.
Partner absolutely loves these. Will definitely be ordering more. They are, exactly as described (: (Look really good on him)
Happiest customer ever. Postage was quick and packaging is biodegradable, which I like.
Purchased the briefs that were a bit long and a size too big for me - but very comfy. Contacted customer services and the response was efficient and excellent. Within a few minutes of emailing I have an exchange sorted for the shorter ones and a smaller size. Top notch.
Got the pair of step ones I brought for my boyfriend and he loves them says they fell great and so soft might have to get more great product .nice
I received a pair of trunks that had a minor defect. I emailed the stepone guys about the issue, they resolved it within minutes and had a new pair sent out the same day. Cannot recommend their product and service highly enough. Thanks
Never going back to regular undies
No chafe, no ride up, no bunching up in the gooch. Feels like you're wearing nothing at all, but with all the support you need. Will never go back to regular undies.

Amazing product, definitely performs exactly as the Ad says! So easy to navigate website & order! Best Underwear ever!
Amazing product, definitely performs exactly as the Ad says! So easy to navigate website & order! Best Underwear ever! I would recommend these Undies to everyone & anyone! They were so helpful when I accidently ordered the wrong size. Jordy sent me free replacement, just like they say.. "Guaranteed first pair!" If not suitable, then they send a replacement pair! So, now.. the only underwear I will ever buy is "STEP ONE" I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!
Hubby happy, now wife wants some
Easy to navigate. Would love 7 different colors. Quality is very good. My wife likes them so much, she is ordering her own trunks. very comfortable to wear, easy to wash
I don't have tree trunk thighs but
I saw this product and thought they look great and got some not only do they look great they feel great they don't ride up or go baggy they are the best boxers I have ever worn so every one get some
I love the Step One Bamboo Trunks, they fit great and feel very comfortable, except for one thing, the Waistband. I find every time I bend over the waistband folds over making a double the thickness waistband which is narrow and cuts into my waist and there's nothing you can do about it because once it has folded over that's where it wants to stay
I can not and will not wear another pair of underpants
Easily the best underpants I've ever had, I recommend them to all my male friends. They're so light and comfortable and also help with chafing due to the bamboo panels.
This product is perfect i have brought heaps of pairs for my partner and son
it was easy to find the products are amazing i am buying 2 of everyone, they are lasting a longtime, the product and quality are amazing the range is perfect
Best jocks ever
Best jocks ever love them and continue to buy them. Wouldn’t have any other jocks now that I have tried stepone underwear. Love love love love them
You won't believe the comfortability
Just rec'd my singles pair today. Wow these are so light comfy. GREAT. So far half way through day. So comfy. I do recommend not to buy 1 (£17) just to try. Trust me you will love these. Buy more to get a better price.
My son and I brought a pair each to try
excellent service and great range, size fits perfectly and very comfortable, great quality my son and I will be definitely ordering more, but will be interesting to try out when it starts to hit 40+ degrees in summer when working outside
Tears of joy, not tears of pain
The inner thigh has been a playground of torture and anger with the meat and two veg being the constant battleground of a loosing battle - Until Now. Tears of joy now flow, not sweaty scrunched up undies tearing and gnawing at the soft and subtle flesh of what should be the tender and enjoyable location of the body, not the cursing of the devils playground!!!
