Janji AFO shorts

By far the best shorts I have had on my waist. These shorts have completely changed my mind in regards to showing some leg. I typically wore longer running shorts because of my extremely pasty white legs that just don’t tan. These shorts feel and look so good that I just don’t care anymore about showing off some bright white thigh and most people just compliment the design on my shorts, rather than saying some snarky comment about my pale complexion. Short or long distance, track or on the trail these are my only choice going forward.

Best....shorts....anywhere

Love the Middle shorts. They are my go to running shorts now. Most comfortable running shorts I've found in 23 years of running. Janji rocks!

Awesome Running Shorts

These shorts are great from a fit and performance perspective. I'm 6'0, 175 lbs, with a 33 inch waste. The size medium fit perfectly. The 5" length and light material is great for running shorts. And the pocket in the back is perfect for holding a phone or keys while out running.
