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.
I bought the Itens because I wanted to support a country that I spent two months in long ago, and loved it.
When I first put the Itens on they feel tight (I have a wide foot). After I get them laced up though they snug my feet and feel very comfortable. I have worn them all day on occasion and I barely realized I had them on. They are so light weight too. It is good to supply great people.
Great first impression. The iten has always had an above-average sole in terms of durability, but the construction of the upper was not on the same level, as far as attention to detail or durability. I have only ran 20 miles on the new iten, but my first impression is excellent. Outstanding quality on the upper; it feels like it will be much more durable. The outsole is still springy and responsive, and the shoe encourages a quick turnover and light step. It is a fun ride
For some reason, this shoe curves along with my feet. Which is unique. I feel like my feet are being modeled and I like it, ha!
Truly love the Itens. The originals may still be my favorite though. Eventually would love to see additional colorways.
I just purchased my 1st pair of Lapatet and they are truly the most comfortable shoes I’ve had. It may be that these Kenyan shoes are from the land of Champions or perhaps a product of Africa but every step seems to remind and encourage me that this product is an embodiment of my African roots. Perhaps I can share my thoughts better in the future but for now , I will continue to support Enda , purchase more shoes and products and share them with all I know.
Please continue your great work because your efforts are greater than a great new product on the market; Harambe makes us strong and will keep us moving forward.
From the minute I put these on, I knew I had found MY BRAND! Ran Track and Field in HS and college and have always had trouble finding shoes that work for me. I have flat feet with low overall volume and instep plus narrow heel. I LOVE mid foot strike mid sole, it is my normal way to run! Always have resorted to Flats to try to be able to run naturally. The sneaker not only works great but IMPRESSED AND PROUD of how Perfectly they are manufactured!!! Not a blemish to be found and I AM PARTICULARLY ATTENTIVE TO DETAILS! Needless to say ordered second pair IMMEDIATELY!!!!
Great pair of sneakers! Compared to the other brand names , this is the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. Great design!
This is my 4th pair. I love them so much. Light, supportive, and just the right amount of cushion. They fit so well. I run 5 days/week. I’ve always rotated between two models during the week to prevent overuse injuries, but now I dread the one or two days when I have to wear a different shoe because nothing compares to my Lapatets.
The shoes are well made, fit is good too. I will be buying the Koobi Fora next. Keep up the excellent work, Team Enda!!!
When I received the package, I was excited as I opened every step of it along the way. From the packaging to the stuffing, I think the concept of Enda sportswear is unique and warm. I like the no box package and the great bag it comes sports bag it came in. The newspaper inside was a great reminder of the things I miss from my time living in south East Africa. Now to the shoes. The Endas I got are ones whereby the tongue of the shoes are all one system, hence why they fit like gloves. I am still breaking them in, at first I had tied them a bit too tight and they fit extremely snug so I had to loosen he fit around the waist of the shoe. But with some adjustments they have begun to fit really nice. I ordered about half size bigger so that I had some comfortable toe space. So far they have been great, I took pictures day 1 and sent them to friends with details on my unpacking. Keep up the great work and beautiful color designs!

I have to say, the shoes are quite narrow. They fit around my foot pretty snuggly.
After wearing them they didn't fool too snug. They definitely have lots of elastic built in to the fabric to stretch around my foot. This design and fabric made my foot feel a bit more stable. They look great and seem to be very well made. If they work out for the the long haul, I might go a half size up and hope you'll made the same shoe in a wide.
I started breaking in my shoes as soon as they arrived and wore them around. I immediately received multiple compliments a day on the attractiveness of my shoes and still get multiple comments a week. I live in Baltimore, Maryland and the people of our city appreciate the design and look of my shoes.
