sustainability

Our AFO fabric is composed of 88% recycled polyester. We use high-grade recycled polyester made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic like rPET (commonly found in single-use bottles and containers) to reduce the impact of our apparel without sacrificing on performance, durability or comfort. 

AFO fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Buy your size

Love everything about this short except I bought a small because when I bought the medium in the Janji shorrt tight they were too big so I should have bought a small. I should have bought the medium in the shorts and small in the tights. I am 65”, 30” waist. Wore them for my 1st 100k. Excellent!!

Another Great Short

I have multiple pair of the standard AFO Middle Shorts so I wanted to try the ultra version. As with all the others the fit and materials is first class. The waist band is a little tighter and firmer though. I’m not sure if that’s to hold the weight of items you’re carrying but the waist band on the standard short is more comfortable.

Sharp shorts

Light, highly breathable fabric. Smooth bonded (no stitching) leg hems should last many miles. Comfortable, flattering fit.

Great short or greatest short???

This might be the best short I have ever owned. I have been on a mission trying to find the perfect short and I have gone through so many brands that don’t have pockets, don’t have a comfortable pouch, a liner that doesn’t rub weird.

These have everything that I have wanted and more, the zippers on the pocket are amazing addition. I absolutely love these and would buy them in more and more colors.

Just insanely comfy

These shorts are so comfy. I haven’t used them for any running yet, but hiking, adventure, climbing, some water activities… SOLID shorts. They are airy and fit true to size. The leg hole isn’t too tight, but definitely not baggy
