    I purchased these to wear for a theatrical production where I needed "underdressing" so that I could change costumes in mixed company without exposing myself to anyone. There are several problems with these shorts. First, they run rather small. I wear a 38 waist normally, so I got an XL, and they barely fit, even though XL is supposed to be for 40-42 waist. All of my Under Armour and Nike compression shorts are XL, and they fit just fine. Second, I needed all white so they didn't show under my white costume pants, and these came with a gigantic grey Adidas logo on the front of the left leg that is not pictured in the description. I wound up putting white tape over the logo to cover it so that it didn't show through my costume pants. Finally, these shorts don't cover much of the male anatomy. I had to wear a pair of boxers over them, because they were so tight, they didn't leave anything to the imagination, which kind of defeated the purpose of using them as underdressing. I continue to use them (under athletic shorts) for running, but again, I wouldn't wear them in public without something over them.

    Most comfortable under garment that I have ever worn. The band is wide and I like that. The material is like a smooth second skin. The mesh is a functional great idea. I always by a size larger than the chart suggest but that’s me. I’m 5’10” 170.

    I loved the previous gen Adidas Techfit 9" shorts. Assumed the Alphaskin would be just as good. They removed the crotch pocket, which is okay I guess, but now the shorts constantly slide down in the butt. Maybe I should have bought the Large for a tighter fit around the waist? Anyway, can't return them.

    Very comfortable below the waist during the day you forget your wearing anything. Just the waistband sizing is off. I am usually a small - medium. But medium was too tight and large was too loose. I have one of each and i'm trying to wash them a few times to see what happens.

    Purchased these for my husband to wear underneath his gym shorts. He says they're comfortable and prevents views up the leg when exercising. He liked them so much that I ordered a second pair.

    Wow....addidas sent me a used underwear.
    Dirty,and ripped even.
    Never thought a big company manage to risk their reputation with their costumers so easly.
    Since I believe in the company, since young age, I notice deterioration in quality of addidas in the last two years. Hope they fix this.

    With a few (cold) washes and always hung to dry, the logo was falling off. Within a few more, the waistband was coming off. These are poorly made.

    Adidas as always made a very good product. Good fit and very comfortable.

    Best way to wash them and make them last is to hang dry. Super comfortable!

    Really nice undershorts
    Stay in place

    I've only worn them a few times now and the seam on the waistband has started to come apart. I'm a little disappointed in the quality of these.

    Excellent fit, good quality and a decent price.

    Good shorts. Got them for running and they have good support.
