There’s a new apparel brand here at Running Warehouse, and it’s one that we struggle to pronounce, so let’s clear it up first and foremost. Janji (pronounced john-jee) means “promise” in Malay. This brand features hip, fashionable apparel that can stand up to your run and also look sharp around town. But how does Janji differ from any of the other fashion-forward brands here at Running Warehouse?
Janji is a company created with the idea of giving back. The idea of enhancing the lives of others. “Promise”, if you will.
Water is an element necessary to sustain life and keep us hydrated as runners. But what about the parts of the world that lack access to clean water? This was heavy on the minds of Mike and Dave, soon-to-be founders of Janji, as they ran the 10k at the 2010 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships. It was the hottest day of the year, and yet along the track they found clean, cool water stations available to keep them hydrated as they ran.
Run for Another is Janji’s motto behind their mission, helping to provide clean water to areas of the world where such a commodity is scarce. What if they could connect runners like themselves to help support clean water initiatives throughout the world? Each piece of Janji running apparel that you purchase contributes 10% of the revenue to supporting clean water projects in countries of need, allowing you to fund solutions and raise awareness for the global water crisis during your everyday training. Pretty neat, right?
Be sure to check out our full line of Janji at Running Warehouse! Here are a few of our favorite pieces that we will be carrying for Fall 2015:
Janji Men’s India Tight | Make a statement with these tights. There’s no mistaking that the bright yellow green pattern will turn some heads, but for the rights reasons. Why wear black tights when you can wear something so hip?
Janji Women’s Long Sleeve Peru | Blue and beautiful, this graphic long sleeve running top provides design interest without being too “loud”. It’s extremely versatile, looking great with your favorite pair of jean shorts while also performing well on your morning run.
Janji Men’s Short Sleeve Peru Photo | This graphic tee is just an example of the super fresh, stylish tees that Janji offers. And the best part? This tee is constructed with technical fabric. The next best part? It is SO soft.
