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.

Greatest Running Shorts

These shorts are my favorite for running. They stay in place on my waist and on my legs. These are the ONLY shorts that I don’t have to worry about moving. I don’t experience any discomfort from chafing. They can feel a bit tight when I’m bloated but I wouldn’t size up. I have 4 pairs and I will be purchasing more!

Comfy and practical

I loved my first run in these shorts! I’m used to pockets in the sides of my thighs but this pair had them more towards the front—ingenious. The print, the little pockets for my keys or cash were great and the grippy bands on the thighs were comfy. I got the Papaya print and it’s so lovely. The best thing about these shorts is that the fabric held up in the Florida heat. No sweat lines!

Thick-thighed girl is IMPRESSED

I was very apprehensive to try these because I have extremely thick thighs and have literally never been able to wear shorts my whole life because they ride up to my crotch when I walk. I am not exaggerating when I say these are the ONLY pair of shorts I have ever kept because they stay put!!!!! No uncomfortable bunching, pinching or chafing. I am SO impressed.

My Running Go-To

Just ran a half marathon in these at a very slow pace and I had no chaffing, I never had to pull my shorts up or down. IT WAS AWESOME!! I hate when I am constantly messing with my shorts during a run, that's not a problem with Janji. I could not recommend these more. They have grippy dots on the bottom and a string tie at the top. Pull the trigger and get them! You will thank yourself!

The best

These are by far the best running shorts I have tried, especially for long distance. They do not budge at all! No ride up, even on long runs, which means no chafing and I cannot tell you how happy that makes me! Also, love all the pockets and nothing slips out of them! Loved these so much I bought a second pair and am definitely contemplating a third. Not sure how they will hold up over time with washing, etc, but so far I love them. Bought the 7in because I have trail runner thighs :)

So far these are my favorite running shorts. Long enough not to chafe and short enough to not look dorky. Side pockets work great and they don’t roll up!

Perfect short

Doesn't ride up at all, comfortable, great pockets. Perfect running short. Had this rush delivered to wear it in a half marathon.
