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.

Phenomenal shorts, but bring back the 7" AFO!!!

I own 4 pairs of AFO shorts, and all of them are in a 4 way tie for my favorite go-to's. They stay close to the leg without being tight, while giving you room to breath without being baggy. All of my previous running shorts would ride up like crazy, but not these. Material also holds up incredibly well to wear and tear. I managed a 50K trail ultra in a pair, and they still look like new (after a wash).

However, when looking to buy another pair in one of the new colors, I find that the AFO is now only available in 5". I've got thighs that rub, so 5s won't work. If I want 7s I have to go linerless or deal with the compression shorts version, which feature a completely different outer material and ride up like craaaaazy.

Please please please bring back the 7" AFO. I beg of thee Janji. I'd love to keep buying your stuff, but you're forcing me into the arms of another.

Totally a believer after the first run. These shorts are crazy comfortable and stayed put for my entire run. Might need to get a few more pairs!

Great quick drying short

I was looking for the key clip to come with these like another pair I purchased but it does have a key loop that secures to the front of the shorts. It’s a bit uncomfortable to start but after a few minutes I didn’t even notice the weight of my keys. However, I personally would prefer a different placement. They do have a secure rear zipper that offers plenty of room as an alternative.

Best Running Short Ever

Janji is kilking it with these short (and really, all their apparel). These are the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn. Quick drying and great protection from chafing. I wear them to lounge around in as much as I do to run in.

Great lightweight shorts

Love these shorts. They feel like they're barely there and have plenty of room in the legs for those of us with big legs. Really like the waistband too.
