Old is Gold but New is diamond...@perfectlydopey took her oldies out for a spin and this is what she had to say “Trying out some speed repeats in between marathons. 🙈 I brought out the old #itens which are still amazing! I love the feeling like my feet aren’t even touching the ground. I can’t wait to try out the new version 😎👟 hope to see them soon!! 🤞🏻”
From Us at Enda
Talking of the Enda Itens, last week, we launched a couple of the new Iten (PLUS extra Lapatet) colors on Pre-order. We are looking to start shipping the pre-orders your way at the end of this month.
It took some time to bring the new Itens to life and we’ve been holding our breath for this moment. Here is a video from Ralph chatting about the new Enda Itens:
