Icebreaker Sonic Short - Men's $0.00
Shorts that won't need to go straight to the laundry room after your run.
The lightweight, breathable, naturally odor-resistant Icebreaker Men's Sonic Shorts are ready for all your summer runs. The soft, super-light merino wool naturally regulates your body temperature and is antimicrobial so you don't have to run straight to the laundry-mat after each run. A gusseted crotch means you can leap over logs on the trail or rodents of unusual size on the sidewalk. Eyelet mesh panels add extra breathability, and anti-chafe seams ensure you run comfortably in the heat as long as you can manage.

Amazing Shorts While They Last
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I fell in love with merino wool a few years ago. These shorts are great basic running shorts with all of the advantages of merino wool (no stink, breathable, overall comfort). I would wear nothing but these shorts except for their durability. I have so far put holes in two pairs of these shorts. Maybe it's just my fat thighs (I'm 5'11" 165 lbs so I don't think I'm exactly huge), but I seem to wear holes in the crotch area of these shorts. I don't run a lot either. At most, I run 20 miles per week. I average probably more like 10 miles per week over the course of a year. And I rotate through different pairs of shorts. And these Icebreaker shorts still got a hole in them after 14 months. Unfortunately, Icebreaker's website is pretty clear that any damage after 1 year is probably due to normal wear and tear, and therefore not eligible for their warranty...
I love these shorts, and like I said, I would love to wear them all the time, but they're just too expensive to justify buying a new pair every year. Especially when my $20 Nike shorts still look basically brand new after 3 years of use. Sure, the Nike shorts might stink a little after a run if I don't rinse them out right away and maybe they're not quite as comfy, but I just can't justify the cost for these Icebreaker shorts... I was really hoping they would be more durable than they are, but based on my experience, I don't think I will be purchasing another pair of these shorts...
My search for the perfect running shorts continues...
