I've found the only outdoor boxer-briefs I will ever buy again! These function better than any other brand I have purchased with regard to "riding up", drying, funk-factor, etc. Everything has already been said in the previous reviews, so I will echo their sentiment - these are fantastic, and are well worth the money even if they aren't on sale, which they were when I bought them... yay for me!

I love Stoic products. Everything I've ever purchased from this brand has been spectacular... with the exception of these boxers. Yes, the material is great, something I've come to expect from this company, and merino in general. But I'm sorry, I could care less about the material if I can't wear the clothing. The fit is horrendous as many here have commented on. I'm 6'3, 215, very muscular, with large thighs; I'm a large man, and generally LG sized clothing is too small. However, I went with the large as I wanted a tight fit - too small is better than too large in my opinion when it comes to flexible boxer briefs. Even on my large frame the waist band rested about 3 inches above my belly button when the crotch was where it should be. I'm sorry, but this is no small issue, and for me, extremely uncomfortable if for no other reason that my body is just entirely unaccustomed the feeling fabric in that area. You guys gotta' fix this!!

Well, what can I say? I was heartbroken with these... during the break in (only need a few short hikes, nothing too steep up or down), they felt snug, no slippage, solid but not clunky - I was happy, a side from the fact that it seems like the toe box was a bit small. Then I took them out on my first real trek - about 20 miles there and back. On every down hill my toes were crushed. I haven't seen one review where anyone said they ran a little small, in fact quite the opposite. However, in my case, I always wear an 11.5 mens, and that size boot in this model Asolo tore my toes up. I tried everything, but if the boot doesn't fit it doesn't fit, and as we all know not every boot is meant for every foot. I went up a half size, and they were a little big. Oh well, I thought I had found "the one", but in my case, i just couldn't get the sizing right.

Just got my Salwea Alp Trainers! Here's the deal - I normally wear an 11.5 mens and have very narrow feet. Based on other reviews here, I decided to go with a size 12 mens in the Salewa's and the fit is perfect... almost. AgainI have very narrow feet, and because of this, the width of the Alp Trainers is perfect, and very comfortable out of the box. The toe box is perfect for me with the 12's, but I'm finding that my heal on the left side is slipping just a hair. I'm using Medium weight backpacking socks without a liner (I will be using liners normally, I just need to get new ones), so maybe with the addition of the liner, it will get better. However, I'm considering going down to an 11.5, but am a little afraid that the heal slip will be fixed but that I won't have enough room in the toe box. Any ideas here? I'm sure the general consensus will be: the only way to know will be to try the 11.5's, but thought i would see if there are any other suggestions before sending these back.
