M's 7" AFO Middle Short

Great fit.

I like the fit on these 7" AFO Middle Shorts. The material is thin and comfortable, too. I have 3 pairs and they are my current favorites in my running shorts rotation.

Everything you are looking for...

Janji, once again, hits another home run with the AFO Middle Shorts. Great fit, versatile and the Canopy color looks great. Great stretching material which seems like it will hold up well. I've taken them out on 2 10k trail runs and have been more than happy with them. Will buy again in other colors. I am 5'7, 140lbs, athletic build and wear a size medium.

I need more of these shorts in my life

Super pumped to see Janji come out with a longer version of the middle shorts.

I love racing in the 5" middle shorts but they show a little too much thigh for my everyday runs. I only like to show thighs when I'm racing cause it motivates me to run faster so I reduce the time my thighs are exposed to the world. 😆

Anyway, these are the perfect everyday running shorts for me. Hope they continue releasing 7" versions in future drops. The designs continue to be on point!

7“ for the win

A comfortable liner, another great pattern, and now the 7” option. I’m 5’7” and for me the 7” is the perfect length, excited to see more of these!

So Good!

Janji shorts. You expect quality, and you get quality.

These are my 10+th pair of Janji shorts. Well worth it!

Good shorts

I will start off by saying I’m a huge fan of all of my Janji products. These shorts are going to work fine and the build quality is exceptional like all of my Janji wear. 2 issues from getting a 5 star. 1. The pocket in the back of the shorts is smaller than expected. I own a iPhone X not a plus or bigger phone. It cannot be used easily with this phone. (So back the the arm band while using these shorts) 2. The small pouch (left side)up front is great. Wish it had one on the right as well. Small issues but will be on the lookout for future tight shorts like my last few pairs. Again I will be enjoying these for years to come. I heart Janji!!!

Great shorts, but could use more pockets

I knew what I was purchasing when I got them - soft material, good design and quality. Needs more pockets to get the 5 star review... cmon Janji!!! Add two side pockets!! I'd love to use these on a long run without having to have a vest or waist belt.

Comfortable material, legs too tight

I love the material of these shorts but the leg opening is just a little too tight, making it feel restricted. I even sized up and still had the same issue. Ended up keeping the 5” instead of the 7” since the issue is less noticeable.
