Print Story

The Spray Dye print capsule is inspired by the distinct differences of each waterway on this planet, and the greater interconnectivity they all share as a singular body.

Print Story

As part of our Chennai Collection, this landscape print is designed by Chennai-based textile artist Kashmira Baheti and represents the vivid energy of daily life in Chennai through hyper-saturated, color vibrance. The ground texture is intended to reflect both earth and water, as Chennai's landscape can fluctuate dramatically between the two with the changing seasons.

4th Pairs the Charm

I run up to 4 times a week. I’ve got 4 pairs of the AFO 3” shorts. Perfect!

AFO Split short

Best shorts ever. The last version was great, these are better. Super lightweight fabric, dries quick, doesn’t stink, zero chafing issues. Little extras like secure key pocket & zippered pocket in back. So far they seem very sturdy, like brand new after two months of constant use. I was a little skeptical of the ‘Save water & wash only as needed’, but there were a couple times when they were all I had & after a couple 8-10 milers they seemed fine. I’m totally sold.

Men’s three inch short

Incredible fit. True to size. Great smooth liner. Incredibly free feeling. (Feels like wearing nothing)

Excellent shorts

Bought a few pair of these last year and they quickly became my go-to choice for warm weather runs. Comfortable waist, supportive liner, a usable pocket (pretty rare in short splits), and the opportunity to break away from the standard black/grey/navy solid color range if you want to be a little bold - so a lot to like here. They are cut well and don't have a ton of excess fabric in the back like some splits, so you don't end up with a bunch of sweaty clingy material when the temps get hot. The 3" length is definitely purpose-made clothing - a bit skimpy to wear in most public locations at less-than-running speeds, but that's true of most splits. I've been replacing my other splits with these as new colors / patterns are released.

Lightweight and Super Comfy

I bought these shorts after purchasing some other Janji products that I love. I was thrilled to see that the outer shell of the shorts is made from really light weight and comfortable fabric. Like any Janji product, it was clear to see that these shorts were made well. It's the details like the breathable and firm waistband and the material chosen for the brief liner and pockets. About a week after getting these and doing a few shorter runs, I put them to the real test and wore them for a marathon. I was so thrilled to find I had zero chafing and felt comfortable for the whole run. In terms of size, things run a bit on the small side compared to other brands for me or rather have a true/snugger fit. I am 175cm (5'9") and 61kg (134lb) and got a size small. It fits me snugly in the waist which is what I prefer. I could have work a medium for a loser but still good fit as well.

Love them!

Great running short, INCREDIBLY comfortable, I wish I had these in all colors because everyone compliments them and loves the patterns. Hopefully my friends will seek them out.
