Print Story - Under Cover

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. ​​A monochromatic, reflective version of the “Star Cover” print rotated on a 45º axis like stars shooting across the night sky. This design represents a connection across generations to ancestors who guide us, lighting our path.

Print Story - Summit II

As part of our American Southwest Collection, this print was designed by Santa Fe-based multimedia artist and pro mountain trail runner Christian Gering. The geological-inspired Summit design evolved from a conversation around "mountain logic" — how a runner forms the link between earth and sky through their ascent and descent of vertical terrain. Look for the ladder in the print, symbolizing that connection and transcendence.

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 (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.

Feeling great

I got convinced by multiple running Websites to go through the hassle of importing two pairs of the 5 inch middle shorts. They are by far my favorite running pants now. They are light, the liner is comfortable, the pocket big enough for me.

Probably would buy more if janji had a store in the EU to make ordering much easier for us.

Must try harder

Great fabric & cut but:
pocket isn’t big enough to hold an iPhone;
the zip is awkward to use;
And the drawstring is too thin and slides too easily against itself when trying tie the knot.

The drawstring and pocket on my other Janji shorts are both much better.

Hope that’s useful feedback.

Keep doing what you’re doing!

Great fit, feel and colours

As well as doing everything that I want from running shorts, they have some great colours/designs .
It is particularly good to support a company with an ecological bias, both in sourcing materials and supporting the environment with drinking water initiatives and funding.

Great product; a nightmare shipment.

I used to buy Janji items in the US: the product was great, and shipment super easy. But, when I ordered some Janji UK items from Italy, the shipment/delivery process was a true nightmare: I was constantly contacted by the courier to fill in endless customs forms (which I am still not sure why it is the ultimate customer who has to do that, and not the seller!), and had to paid close to 40%-50% of the items purchased in taxes, duties, etc, before the items could be released from customs and be delivered...! Great product but an awful experience!
