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 (a form of recyclable plastic 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.

Amazing customer service & best hiking shorts!

I purchased 3 shorts because I love them so much! Lightweight, comfortable and love the back pocket to fit keys/cards/small cell). Also, customer service is AMAZING!

Almost like wearing nothing at all!

These are impossibly lightweight and super quick drying. They are perfect for those hot summer days where you can hit a sprinkler or two on the run. I'm getting used to the freeing feeling of these, they feel flowy instead of my usual compression gear. Highly recommend!

As a minimalist I'm struggling to not own a 5th pair of these shorts. Extreme lightweight, versatile use and great design/function. KEEPER!

Barely there shorts

I love these running shorts! Once I get started, I don't notice them at all. I usually use these for short runs or longer runs close to a home base so I don't have to pack much. My phone is too large for the back pocket so I carry my phone in a SPIbelt.

Even better than before!

I really like the updated fit and material of the AFO shorts. The waistband is more comfortable and truer to size than previous seasons and the material is SO airy. I haven't tested out the back pocket yet to see if it holds my phone without bouncing.

Favorite shorts, period.

These are my go-to shorts for just about everything. Running? Definitely grabbing my Janjis. Want to lounge and be comfy? Janjis. Hiking? Janjis. Walking the dogs? Janjis. Breathing? Janjis. They fit beautifully, I love the pockets, the tie is secure and I know they are good quality. I have five pairs!
