Our best-selling 5” Middle Short is now even better with an outer shell made from our ultra light, fast drying AFO stretch fabric. Newly updated for 2020, an interior brief liner pocket with key-loop bungee and intuitive back pocket redesign further solidify this short as a daily running essential.

Aron wears size Medium and is 5’11”


Built as an all-around performer and everyday running essential, the Middle Short is a silhouette we've been refining since the very beginning. It's our go-to short for crushing the majority of our mileage and consistently ranked as a best-in class running short.

Most comfortable running shorts I've owned

Have now done a couple long runs as well as 50 mile races in the AFOs. Would highly recommend for all runners regardless of what distance you're looking to go.

ALMOST great...

You better only carry one key if you use the built-in lanyard. It's puts the metal in your "bounce" zone. Ouch. Especially up hills. But you can always use the back pocket. Good fit and quality over all. Use these as my go-to 'cause of all the great colors available.

Lightweight

Avid runner. First time trying shorts without spandex but these 5in AFO shorts are super comfy. Holds everything in place. I haven’t done any runs over 6 miles.

Might pick up a second
pair for half marathon training
