We exist to increase fairness, justice, and equality in the world. Right now, we do that by making running shoes in Kenya.
Most running shoes are designed to accommodate inefficient running form, characterized by over-striding and a heel-strike.
Our shoes are designed for efficient running form and mid-foot strike, to help everyone Run Kenyan.
how we train
Running shoes are a tool for training, and the right shoe can help you get the most out of each workout.
Each of our shoes is designed for the different runs you do each week.
Enda Iten pair is exactly what I needed to kickstart my running again!!! They are light and airy, wide but supportive, and balance perfectly my mid-foot strike on pavement. I absolutely love them and will likely stay a customer for life.
Got them as a gift for my friend. She loves them.
I was super excited to get my package in the mail, and as it turns out for good reason. The shoe is lightweight, has a fantastic bright green color, and is very nimble. I hope ENDA keeps making more new products because they have a new long-time customer.
This is my second pair of Lapatets. They are great for easy and long runs. Super comfortable and light.
Out of the box I did an easy 6 and they are really nice. I like a more solid feeling shoe, but also with no more than 6mm drop. These are perfect.
Ethics are important to me when I make product choices, so this is going to be my main road show for sure.
I run on a lot of gravel roads and sand; we’ll see how they hold up to the gritty life. They look and feel substantial so I’m not worried.
These rainbow ones are sooo pretty. Purtiest running shoe I ever had.
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!
