WHAT THE NEWS SAYS ABOUT US
Enda on CNN
Love the color and the fit and feel of the running shoe is a solid YES! I feel like these shoes and my feet are one. The best shoe i have had to run in on all fronts. I highly recommend trying them out and feel confident you will love them and your feet will love them too!
I am an older runner (62) and had been wearing Brooks Ghosts for the last five years, and though I love them and still wear them sometimes, I really like my Lapatets. My foot strike feels perfectly mid foot and I am running faster and stronger. My foot is active in the shoe, I can spread my toes, and my arches feel really good. I was surprised. They seem like a very simple shoe out of the box, but they feel magical.
I have high arches that cause tendonitis without enough support. These are the first shoes I have not had to use insoles with and they are super light weight and comfy. Just bought my second pair and plan to live in them.
I will never buy a different brand of shoes. Great quality, well built, and supports the environmentally sustainable and responsible initiative. Shoes feel light on my feet and helps to keep my cadence constant. My feet flex with the terrain and allows me to connect with the surface. Feel great to wear for all distances.
On my 2nd pair of Lapatets and I am sincerely enjoying these shoes! The construction and durability is unmatched in my opinion. These have become my go-to daily runners and do switch for my long runs … but the brand I use for the long run wears out in about half the miles as my Endas. These are built to last … and as a vegan runner, I appreciate Enda’s efforts to be climate neutral and create a vegan friendly bundle of love for my feet. The cultural aspects of the design have also gotten me to research and learn more about Kenya and I am asked often what kind of shoe I’m wearing … and I do brag a little about the Lapatets!
Amazing! Great customer service!
I love Enda’s brand and everything it stands off. Never have I experienced such intentionality and meaning in a shoe design. From what each part represents to the focus on enhancing performance, Enda has made a remarkable product. Even more, the company will have measurable impact. It inspires me to be and do better.
Lapatet - Women - Rainbow Runner
To contribute to the great idea of this sustainable product, walking in enda-shoes makes me happy and smile and my feet enjoy every step.
I’m no longer a runner. Many years in the Army, sports I played, and age have taken that away. I still love these shoes. I’m on my feet all day at work.
Changing to Enda shoes has made an immediate impact on the health of my arches and the energy level I have throughout my workday.
I can’t endorse them enough. These are great shoes made by a company that’s doing things right.
The shoes are made of very Quality Materials that are durable and provide a great running fit.
I purchased two pair of Lapatet runners over the past few months and wear them on my daily runs on trails and hard surfaces. I run between 25 and 30 miles per week. They have been fabulous, fit to size and durable. The fit has eased some of my foot health issues from other shoes. I've been very pleased with the way they feel and the colorful contribution they make to my running! I hope this is a long-term relationship!
I was eager to try Enda because of their story and ethos, so am pleased that they live up to my hopes for the shoe. Love the cushion and arch support in my new Lapatets. They are responsive and light, but have just the right amount of cushion for my long runs. I love the color and the look of them too. If I could change one small thing, I'd want a little more height along the top of the toes. I have to wear thinner socks than with my other shoes so they don't rub along the knuckles of my toes, but they are so great otherwise that it's worth switching sock brands to keep running in the Lapatets. The first week I had them, I ran 2 8-milers and a 13-miler and felt great. This will be my go-to long run road shoe.
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.
