behind the design

Breathable

Fast drying

Lightweight

Moisture-wicking

Recycled poly

Built as an all-around performer and everyday running staple, 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. Made from our ultra-light AFO stretch fabric with a built-in performance brief liner, the Middle Short wicks, breathes, and dries super quickly. Two pockets, a roomy back zip pocket and internal front drop-in, handle your essential carrying needs.

All about the pull

The back pocket of the Middle Short features a nylon pull to allow for easier pocket access on the move.

2 / 2
Get geometric

Inspired by the refraction of shapes through water, this print was designed by Cape Town-based artist Al Luke and features his organic line-work style. We see an abstract landscape of explosive shapes in this print, like a picture into another world.

my favorite shorts

I wear these shorts 24/7. They are light and airy and also don't get bunched up during my runs. They also are the perfect length IMO and I also like the amount of tapering on the sides. The pocket works great for a couple gels and doesn't get in the way. I am anxiously awaiting the next set of patterns to be released so I can buy some more!

Love these shorts!

I'm always on the lookout for seamless shorts that don't chafe on long runs, and these Janji shorts are a new favorite! They have a back pocket (which a lot of the minimalist shorts don't) and they provide more coverage than similar styles I've tried (like Nike's aeroswift shorts or Saucony's endorphin split shorts). The waistband is a tad tight, but it helps keep the shorts in place if you put keys or anything in the back pocket. Would definitely recommend!
