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.

Replacement shorts

I bought a pair of the W's 3" AFO Middle Short, and they developed a manufacture-related defect. I sent an email to the company, and replaced the shorts, which gives me one more reason to keep running in Janji. I have five or six pairs of these short--current and past models--and I love them. They're the perfect weight and (generally!) hold up really well to long runs and multiple wears over years.

They’re pretty perfect!

I’ve been eyeing these shorts for a LONG time and finally bought a pair on sale! Well wow… they are so good! I finally found a pair to replace my dying favorites and I’ve been searching for a while! The material is so light and flowy and the cut is just perfect!

My New Favorite Running Shorts!

I love the light weight, the fit, and the zippered pocket in back. The waist band is uber comfortable too.

AFO Middle Short

My favorite thing about these shorts is the waist band. It’s softer and less tight than previous versions making them super comfortable long run shorts. I own 6 pairs now :)
