Product Reviews

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS

The Iten is the perfect light weight trainer. Built for your fast shorter runs, it's robust enough to keep you going if you chose to go longer.

TOE BOX

We brought the toe box down so when you flex your toes, the Iten will move with your foot. We also made the Iten just slightly wider than other speed work shoes, giving your toes just a bit more room to splay.

LIGHT WEIGHT

At a mere 7.9 oz (224 grams) for a men’s US size 9 (UK 8), the Iten will never be a drag when you pick up the pace.

FLEXIBLE

Your foot is a powerful set of muscles and tendons. When training, you want a shoe that gives your foot a full range of motion so your arch, ankle, and toes can build the strength and endurance you need. The Iten does just that.

4MM DROP

If you run barefoot, you’ll find yourself landing on your midfoot or forefoot. Having a big cushioned heel on your shoe can throw off this natural gait. So the Iten has only 4mm more cushioning in the heel than the forefoot to help you land naturally.

MIDSOLE CUPS HEEL

Whenever you take a turn or run across an uneven surface (like the crown of a road), your foot wants to move laterally. Since the Iten’s midsole cups the foot, it keeps you locked into the shoe even on the sharpest of turns.

Cultural Elements

More than just a great running shoe, the Iten is covered with little bits of the Kenyan running story. 

THE ITEN

We named our first shoe ‘Iten’ after a small town on the edge of the Rift Valley that produces an exceptional number of the world’s best athletes. We cut a rift into the heel in homage Rift Valley, where you'll find this Home of Champions.

JAMHURI LINES

Along the side of the Iten, you’ll find 12 lines. Two shoes makes it 12/12 - or 12 December. Jamhuri day. That great day in 1963 when Kenya finally gained independence from the United Kingdom and exactly one year later when it became a republic.e.

HARAMBEE

Under the sole, you'll find the word "Harambee". In Swahili it means “all pull together”, and is used to refer to moments where communities come together to accomplish something individuals couldn’t do alone.

GEOMETRIC PATTERNING

Whether Maasai and Samburu beading or Swahili lesos and kangas, you’ll see consistent repetition of triangle patterns in Kenyan design. We brought those same triangles to several different places on the Iten.

THE SPEAR

A traditional symbol of Kenya found on the flag, national crest, and given as one of the highest honors - similar to a presidential commendation or knighthood. We made our own running spear and proudly emblazon it on all Enda gear.
