I now own eight (just purchased 3 more, and wear them comfortably on a almost daily bases with or without a cup I got with another Shock Doctor product. I like the extra fabric layer the cup pouch offers compared to a plain Shock Doctor jock. I do have a skin issue in my family jewel area from rubbing on my thigh, and found a cup helps quit a bit to eliminate the rubbing/friction on long walks/hikes. All the older ones except one have held up well to washing and air drying. Can't say if the one is the oldest. The stitching has come out on the upper part of one side of the cup pouch but still quit usable.
I had a hard time getting my 15 year old son to wear anything but his loose boxer shorts. I got him a few different jocks and cups and even a pack of tighty whities, figuring they’d at least give him some support. He’d wear all of them a couple times then it would be back to boxers. The Shock Doctor was different. He said it was the only comfortable jock he tried, even with the cup in. He wore the jockstrap by itself for basketball last winter and now he’s wearing the jock and cup over his tighty whities for football. Problem solved. Thanks Shock Doctor!
I purchased an SD 218 supporter 2 years ago, and after over 460 baseball games over the two seasons, it is finally showing some serious wear and tear and needs to be replaced. I've worn inferior brands that were gone in less than one full season. The comfort of the model 218 is incomparable. I highly recommend these supporters and I am not a paid spokesman!
