Seriously great undies.

published

Have never reviewed a product before, these jocks are so seriously great that I’ve had to jump on and write one. I’ve got tree trunks for legs, always have a tough time buying leg related clothes, these bad boys fit perfectly, don’t ride up, keep everything where it’s meant to be and the Lycra panels really do make your legs glide together. No chaffing at all!! Got a 4 pack to start with, on day 5 after arrival I had to revert to a pair of the old ginch, felt like I’d strapped some sandpaper on.. So impressed that I’ve just dialled in and doubled my fleet. Don’t listen to any of the odd propaganda reviews; Do yourself a favour lads, take the dive, your getaway sticks will thank you!

Good idea with one flaw

published

The boxers themselves are comfortable and we'll made but there is a flaw with waist band. I am not fat bellied but the band folds over when wearing and after use is permanently creased in two. I am afraid for this reason I couldn't recommend this product.

They look nice but dont last very long

published

I bought 7 pairs after seeing all the good reviews, unfortunately they have worn out within months. The elastic in the waist is all distorted and holes and tears are already showing. Yes they are comfortable but i would guess that most of the 5 star reviews come from people that have only just bought them. I have other brands that are still perfect after having them for years.

Waist band rolls down

published

The product is ok but has a major design flaw. The waist band curls over after a few minutes wear making life uncomfortable. A pity because everything else is good.

Didn't even last the year

published

Made purchase on 04 SEP 19 - Site was easy to navigate, payment and freight was easy. Received parcel earlier than expected. Whilst the product doesn't 'ride up' they certainly don't stay in place. Numerous times I've had to pull them back up, to the point of ripping the material. Out of the 4 pairs, I'm down to 2 pairs. I've bought cheaper underwear that have definitely lasted longer than this.

Good...for a day.

published

Super comfortable long undies that are great for a wear or 2....I thought I was on to a winner until the waist band kept rolling up. So I took advantage of the great offer and they sent me another one for free. A shorter leg. Had the same problem with these. Might be ok if I had a flat stomach. I don't like wasting money so I kept wearing them. Now, after about 10 wears have a hole appearing in the front. Glad I didn't buy 7 pairs like I was going to. They don't ride up but that's about the extent of the positive review. Really need to fix the waist band issues.

Need lot of improving

published

I have bought 7 pairs about a month ago. They all looked and felt good at the beginning but after about 2 weeks there are signs of band rolling over when i was bending and sitting. Which made it really uncomfortable also threads started coming off too. I would not recommend the product to any one.

CHAFE

published

Very disappointed! I purchased them about 4 weeks ago in preparation for summer hoping to avoid CHAFE a bit better. First warmer day and I can barley walk it's that bad. I'm not a big man just active with work and these are no better than the cheapo underwear you get from any shop.

Comfy but not sure of quality

published

Very comfy undies, however I have worn them 3 times and the stitching is already starting to come undone so I don't think they are going to last to long.

Not so great

published

Ordering & delivery is easy & fast, can’t fault them for that.
The product on the other hand doesn’t quite live up to the hype. Yes they keep you dry, yes they prevent chaffing.
Unfortunately as for riding up they fail completely, I feel so uncomfortable every time I stand up as I extract them from places they aren’t meant to be. Feels like every 5min I’m reaching down to pull them back down to where they should be.

Tried to get someone to respond from StepOne, but never got a reply.

Terrible

published

Bought a 7 pack. They ride up my legs and are incredibly uncomfortable when they do so. After 6 months elastic is trashed, material has worn down to tissue paper thin, and holes have started to appear. Would not recommend or buy again.

Doesn’t deliver on promises

published

Ok Firstly they ride up. Secondly the band around the top keeps folding In Half making for an uncomfortable experience. Thirdly they don’t support your junk as advertised.
On a plus side they are well made

I like the ads however..

published

Had these 4 pairs of Step one's for a month now and I have been trying to like them but afraid they have been binned today. I was impressed by the ads and the delivery service and the idea that bamboo would feel good. Step one's have so many positive reviews that I think it must be my problem. The design of the undies is good but they feel like plastic, they look like polyester and they are not as comfy as the ad says. Very hard to dry after washing more so than "normal undies" and for what they are very expensive. I am going back to my cotton/elastane mix undies .

Great style - crap elastic

published

Really good design but the elastic waist is very ordinary. The order was received promptly so my only complaint is the quality of the elastic waist band. Colour range, fit and style are excellent.

Holding my bits in place

Bamboo breathes but does Lycra?

published

I bought four pairs of these for my son and he was delighted with how comfortable they were. The bamboo is a lovely product, so soft and breathable. He was definitely a convert. Unfortunately he developed 'jock itch' after wearing them for a few weeks. We think it may have been due to the lycra panels which I imagine would not be very breathable. He now chooses not to wear the Step Ones at all.
It would be great to perhaps have a 100% bamboo product for those with sensitive skin.

Sorry , wouldn’t but these again

published

Having bought another brand previously , I decided to give these a try . While the fit was great , I wouldn’t buy them again , as the 4 pairs I purchased all got holes in them after a couple of weeks. Disappointing really as they are not cheap. Sorry but I will be going back to the others I bought previously - have had them for ages , and no holes

They just don't last.

published

I purchased 10 pairs 3 on the first occasion and 7 on the second. I have had my undies for about 2 months. The white pair's seem split wearing them about 3-4 times. A second white pair did the same. They gave me the option of a new pair or 25% off my next purchase. There won't be one. They are overpriced and clearly are not meant to war more than a few times. Very Very disappointed. They were comfortable whilst I worn then but so overpriced

It's perfectly fine, you just pull the waistband down. No different to the jocks I wore for 50 odd years of my life.

Details

Step One sets out to makes men’s bamboo underwear with simple aims in mind: to be really comfy, to remove the ‘permanent front wedgie,’ and to fit well, all for a fair price.

With an impressive 4.7 star rating from almost 4,000 reviews, this bamboo underwear succeeds. Many happy men reported that their new underwear was exceptionally comfortable, that it fit them well, and that there was no riding up or chafing.

According to Step One, thanks goes to the bamboo fabric, which breathes well and wicks away moisture away to ‘keep you dry and comfortable all day.’ Step One credits the underwear's good fit to a 3D contoured pouch with elastic stitching, which supports the crotch area and stretches to fit.

Step One is an ethical company with BSCI certification, and they use organically grown and FSC certified bamboo.
