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.

Most comfortable running shorts I've owned

Have now done a couple long runs as well as 50 mile races in the AFOs. Would highly recommend for all runners regardless of what distance you're looking to go.

ALMOST great...

You better only carry one key if you use the built-in lanyard. It's puts the metal in your "bounce" zone. Ouch. Especially up hills. But you can always use the back pocket. Good fit and quality over all. Use these as my go-to 'cause of all the great colors available.

Lightweight

Avid runner. First time trying shorts without spandex but these 5in AFO shorts are super comfy. Holds everything in place. I haven’t done any runs over 6 miles.

Might pick up a second
pair for half marathon training
