sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Best distance shorts yet

These immediately became my favorite running shorts. They’re stretchy yet tight enough to keep everything in. The pocket space allows me to bring my phone, keys, and gu, plus the pocket to store a layer is a game changer. Best part: the do not ride up or budge regardless of how far you’re running. I want them in every color.

I was a little worried about this season’s “new fit,” since I absolutely loved everything about the pair I bought last summer. The new 7 inch length is better for me than last year’s 6 inch, and has completely eliminated any thigh chafing that I sometimes get on early spring runs when my skin is dry. The overall sizing is a bit larger than last year, which is pretty neutral for me. I am a solid size L in most activewear brands and Janji is no exception. I find with the new fit, the entrance to the side pockets bulge out a bit, whereas they are snug against my thighs/hips in last year’s fit. Not a huge issue, but I notice it when I look in the mirror so I suppose its worth mentioning! I do love this season’s print and that was a big draw for me. Overall, these are still my favorite shorts to run in, and I don’t really have a preference between the new and the old fit. (I’m 5’9” and 180lbs for reference.)

Great pockets!

I purchased these because I wanted shorts with multiple pockets. These fit my phone comfortably and give me options for keys, etc. I love the color, too. I was between sizes on their size chart and I did need to size up.

No more chafing!

Love these shorts. They're lightweight but you feel covered. The grip material on the bottom hem of the shorts is perfect to keep them from slipping up. In addition, I no longer get chafing on my thighs!

Perfect for long runs! These shorts stay put.

The purple batik print is so fun, I couldn't resist. Immediately after buying them, I took them out for a 13 mile long run and was so impressed. Janji really nailed balance of compression and comfort in these. They're lightweight, comfortably snug, and thanks to the silicone grips on the legs, they don't ride up. The seaming is really technical and provides nice support. Super happy with these! The only thing that would make these more perfect for me would be a 1" or 2" higher waist (these are mid-rise, but I find higher rise to be more comfortable and flattering, particularly if you wear them with just a bra on top!) and maybe a slightly shorter inseam (at 7", these are quite long for my petite 5'1" body.)

As an aside, I would love to see Janji make higher rise bottoms in general! Nothing absurd, and I know fit is a very personal thing, but I bet a lot of other ladies would be THRILLED to get Janji bottoms with a higher rise. Maybe instead of changing the fit in later iterations (which would inevitably upset as many people as it would thrill?) you could offer additional rises, so we have options!
