Inspired by the Orchidaceae, or orchid family, and including three different species endemic to the Philippines, as well as the Cebu Flowerpecker bird, this print is an homage to the strange and endearing beauty of the flora and fauna of this world.
Our best-selling 5” Middle Short is now even better with an outer shell made from our lightest, fastest-drying fabric—AFO stretch woven. Newly updated for 2020, an interior brief liner pocket with key-loop bungee and intuitive back pocket redesign further solidify this as a daily running essential.
Built as an all-around performer and everyday running essential, the Middle Short is a silhouette we've been refining since the very beginning. It's our go-to short for crushing the majority of our mileage and consistently ranked as a best-in class running short.
This print is drawn by Raxenne Maniquiz, a Manila-based graphic illustrator that specializes in drawing the flora and fauna native to her home country, the Philippines. With a deep fascination for the peculiarity of different species, she has been creating naturalist-inspired illustrations so precisely that she has been contacted by botanists and biologists to collaborate on their research papers.
