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 running shorts of all time

I have tried so many shorts, thought I liked them, but have always had to pull them up or down to stay in place. This is the only pair of shorts I’ve found that stays in place for every run- even a marathon! They’re long enough to prevent chafing, tight enough to stay in place, and great high rise without digging in to my sides. The perfect shorts.

Comfy running with great pockets

I already have a few pair of these, so could not resist the sale pricing to get another pair. I use these Janji shorts for short to medium length runs, so far up to about half-marathon distance. I will try them for longer distances as I train for my ultra. I have not tried them for longer distances. The legs stay in place, they don't bind, and I don't have to pull them out of my nether regions. I do use body lubricant (Glide) for anything over 10 miles, but have felt no need to do so for the shorter runs. I'm not sure I need to lube for the longer runs, but why take the chance?

Best run short

I will have a hard time wearing any other running shorts to be honest. I can’t tell if it’s just because I gained weight or if they’re a little snug for me on the medium so I’ll say they just fit right. Even with the snug fit on my stomach (again probably because I’m heavier than usual right now) it wasn’t uncomfortable and I ran a whole marathon in them. The deep pockets are everything you can fit an entire plastic water bottle in them (I didn’t run like that just tested it out) I fit 4 gels on each side and still had room for my phone the whole race never lost a gel and I have thicker thighs never once pulled my shorts down because of the grip

The 16 hour Test: Stays in Place All Day!

I wore these for my first 100k race around Lake Sonoma. I usually buy men's shorts from Janji because I like the longer length. I am 5'2 and 120 pounds. I usually buy an xs in janji's leggings, but the xs pace short tends to be too tight around my stomach. I initially didn't want to buy the pace short because I can have issues with a too tight fit around my stomach causing more nausea as a run extends beyond 5 hours. However, size small was the perfect fit. Not too tight around my stomach and a perfect fit around my thighs. They stayed in place for the entirety of my 100k with no chafing and no issues. The best shorts are the ones you don't even know you are wearing so you can focus on the aspects of the race. That's exactly what these offer. I couldn't recommend them more.
