Doors of Destiny

We’re heading towards the final quarter of 2023 and the trailcore trend is showing no signs of dying down. Case in point– the all-new La Sportiva & Janji collaboration featuring not one, not two, but 10 pieces to satisfy all your technical trail and technicolor dreamcoat cravings.

Available now at and coming to on October 3, the “Door to World” capsule includes trail running footwear in an all-new colorway of the La Sportiva Jackal II, as well as a full Janji running kit with “vibrant designs for everyday wearability.”

The designs certainly stand out, as evidenced in the colorful Tectonic Shift prints within the collection. Part earthen plates, part Everlasting Gobstoppper, the multi-colored palettes are sure to pop when worn out and about, whether on a mountain trail or a city sidewalk.

While the entire collection has yet to be announced, we do know that it will feature a custom version of the aforementioned La Sportiva Jackal II as well as Janji’s new Zephyrunner Windshell, a vaporlight, packable windbreaker. The brand’s lightest fabric yet, it’s constructed of 20D nylon micro ripstop fabric, weighing 40gsm.

Other pieces in the collection include the Pace Sports Bra, AFO Short, and the always-awesome Slingbag.

Unsurprisingly, there’s also a focus on sustainability as the entire capsule will include the use of recycled materials. The Jackal will see an update with recycled mesh materials in the forefoot, tongue, and lining, while Janji’s entire kit is constructed from a majority of recycled materials.

This marks the first collaboration between the brands; in fact, it’s actually La Sportiva’s first-ever collaboration in its nearly 100 year existence.

The Italian brand is known for its quality and exceptional craftsmanship in mountain footwear and apparel. We’ve reviewed the Jackal II in the past and our reviewers had high praise for its performance on the trails. 

Similarly, Janji has slowly but surely built its brand, one loyal customer at a time, focusing on giving back to clean water initiatives while creating functional running apparel with bold designs.
