sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

So far these are my favorite running shorts. Long enough not to chafe and short enough to not look dorky. Side pockets work great and they don’t roll up!

Perfect short

Doesn't ride up at all, comfortable, great pockets. Perfect running short. Had this rush delivered to wear it in a half marathon.

Perfect length and stay-put shorts!

I ran a marathon and the weather forecast changed a week before to be quite warm. I decided that I needed to trade in tights and get some shorts. Sometimes I suffer from chaffing between my thighs so just needed a shirt that would not move. I found these and they were absolutely perfect for the marathon. They didn’t move nor did anything bother me. I took my phone out of the pocket many times and the shorts still stayed in place. I will continue to wear them running. So happy with my purchase.

Best possible shorts

I can only wear bike short style shorts for running, because anything loose rides up. These are the best ones I’ve tried! They’re thin, quick drying, true to size, stay in place, perfect pockets, and flattering. These are my new go to shorts for big events and they’re already the ones I wear first out of the laundry and I’ve only had them for a couple of weeks.

Perfect running shorts

These shorts fit perfect. I ordered a second pair as soon as I tried mine on. The shorts have just the right amount of compression and are the perfect length (no chafing). The grippy dots at the bottom inside of the shorts ensure they don’t roll or ride up. They really stay put. The pockets are deep. Great shorts!

Perfect Long Distance Running Shorts

I have 5 pairs of these shorts in my rotation, and I'm such a huge fan. They stay put on my legs. I have had minimal chafing / rubbing issues on long runs. The pockets are amazing for carrying gels, etc. Also means a lot to me that Janji supports all kinds of runners (huge fan of Cal Calamia). I did notice that the little silicone grippers tend to come off after a few months of use, but doesn't seem to affect how well the shorts stay put.

Favorite shorts of all time!

These shorts are well made, fit perfectly, and are gorgeous in person! The pockets fit a ton of fuel and a phone without bouncing or other discomfort. I plan to slowly phase out all of my other shorts and replace them with new pairs of these!

Just bought my 4th pair!

I truly love these shorts! I am now on my 4th pair of the 7” shorts. The fit is perfect and the deep pockets hold everything without my phone or other items bouncing around or falling out. I like that these sit a bit lower than the “ultra high rise” styles that seem to be everywhere else. These are shorts and I’m wearing them for running in the summer, so a higher waistband is way too hot. I also love the colors and patterns, and l look forward to the announcements about upcoming versions. Perfect fit, perfect colors/patterns, perfect cause. Great job Janji!

Amazing shorts

I own 10+ pairs of these (across 3 different style iterations). They’re amazing! Skin-like with deep pockets and a good grip. The 2024 iteration seems a bit tighter in the waistband. My regular size still fits, but just a note.
