Women's 3" AFO Middle Short - Midnight
2

This product says that it has these certifications, but we have not yet verified it. We are working hard to verify more product certifications!

by Janji

Our bestselling short is better than ever — same fast-drying AFO shell fabric and moisture wicking brief liner as previous versions along with an updated waistband for softer next-to-skin comfort.

Built as an all-around performer and everyday running staple, the Middle Short is a silhouette we've been refining since the very beginning. A bestseller, it's our go-to short for crushing the majority of our mileage. Made from our ultralight AFO stretch fabric, the Middle Short wicks, breathes, and dries super quickly and has an integrated brief liner and two pockets for your essential carrying needs.

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.
