So far, I am extremely happy with the feel and overall comfort of the Lapatet.
The Lapatet is a great shoe, I am by no means a "real" runner ( I never do more than a few miles) But, I have to say that this is the best running shoe that I have used. With many shoes I have felt that I needed to compromise support, weight or comfort. But, with the Lapatet I feel that all of those qualities are balanced . I feel like a kid with new shoes "look, my shoes make me go FAST!" Thank you again for the excellent product, and costumer service.
My tennis fit with comfort and support, giving me the feeling of freedom! They get the job done.❤️🖤💚👊🏿
This is my second pair of green Enda Iten - I wore out my last pair and bought the same again because they are the best trainers I've ever had. So comfortable and supportive for your feet, airy, and so good looking.
I usually where a 8 1/2 US. It was super tight, with a borrow foot bed. I have a pretty narrow foot compared
to most. I have sent them back for a size bigger . Hopefully they will fit.
I like the shoes a lot. I wish I could have received them in black. I ordered them in black but after two months, I inquired and you had run out of stock so I chose green as a replacement color. I like them.
These are some of the most light weight, comfortable running shoes I’ve ever had. They are better than Brooks running shoes. Thanks Enda for creating this fantastic shoe with so much to offer runners while also packed full of neat African culture and style! I love my Itens!!
These are great shoes! They are great looking and the feel great to wear. They really holds your foot in place and give the support you want. I never write reviews, but these shoes have made a big difference for me and my lower back pain. I love these shoes!
Excellent first run in my beautiful new Lapatets! Very supportive and lightweight, with an eye-catching appearance!
ENDA ITEN (MEN)
These shoes have met and exceeded my expectations. The light weight, arch support, and overall fit are perfect for my running style. I will continue to wear them and see how they hold up over time.
A really great looking shoe which support my runs through Alaska. The shoe is nice and light while still providing support, which make my runs fast when I hit well established trails or cross onto the pavement. Second pair of Lapatet's and I couldn't be happier. Teaching cross country this spring and so far I can look great and keep up with some of the kids!
I'm impressed by how quickly the Kenyan made product arrived all the way up in Alaska, in the middle of nowhere. Great time to be alive and support great product from great companies.
I bought my Lapatet's because I was intrigued by Enda's mission and vision. They did not disappoint. The shoes look great, and more importantly feel great, and I can feel good about supporting an African company that is doing good things for the people of Kenya.
I feel like I am being propelled forward. Literally makes me want to run the extra mile. Officially sold on these shoes for life. Not a bot, just a very satisfied customer.
Truly a one of a kind gift for a special friend.
