These are my second pair of AFO Middle Shorts and they are my 2nd favorite pair of shorts, the first being my first pair in Indigo (why I like them more is explained below). These are great shorts to run in and to lounge in. The fabric is so light and the waist band is extremely comfortable - you almost forget that you’re wearing shorts at all! The one downside in the updated fit (on the color Haze) is that the drawstring appears on the outside of the waist band as opposed to on the inside, which is how my Indigo pair is designed and how I prefer it to be. That being said, it’s only a minor cosmetic issue (in my opinion) and it doesn’t affect the functionality of the shorts.
In terms of sizing, I went with a size small, which turned out to be perfect. For context, I am about 115 lbs, 5’3” athletic build and wear a size 25-26 in pants.
My new go to. I have been a long time loyal wearing of a different brand and these have won me over. Waist band great, light, dry fast. I need all the colors!!

This is my first pair of Janji shorts, and I love them! The shorts are super comfortable and light.
I am 5'9; 135 lbs and bought a size Small
I have gradually found myself to be very picky when it comes to running shorts... and these shorts are incredible. I've worn these for a few long runs and a workout and appreciated that there are 2 pockets (one zippered and one with a little loop for my keys), the material is ultra lightweight, the liner is not so tight that it rubs against my skin, and the waistband is comfortable plus has a drawstring. These are fairly low (sit multiple inches below my belly button) as is shown in the pictures which is fantastic for summer running!
All in all these shorts are fantastic and I plan to run many of my future races (namely a marathon this upcoming Fall) in these shorts!
These are so comfy. I love to run in them and have been part my quarantine uniform
Great quality and material!!
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!
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!
