Cultural Elements

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

Flag Eyelets

3 of the 4 colors of Kenya's flag encircle the top lace eyelets. Black for the people, red for the blood spilled for independence, and green for the plant life of Kenya.

Great Rift Valley

Kenya's Great Rift Valley creates the perfect altitude and climate for training . We pay tribute to it with a topographical map down the center of the Lapatet.

Kanga & Kikoi

We took patterns from two traditional Swahili fabrics and brought them to the tongue tag and pull tab.

The Name: Lapatet

Lapatet means running in some Kalenjin languages, a tribe in Kenya from which most of Kenya’s great runners come from. It’s how most Kenyan athletes say running.

The Waves

Inspiration for the Lapatet came from Kenya's natural features. Specifically, the waves we see when the wind blows over the Indian Ocean, the grasses of the savanna, and the clouds in the sky.

Better For the world

I love them running shoes! Having worn other brands (ASICS and mizuno) these feel drastically better. They absorb impact beautifully! My knee pain is almost nonexistent running on nyc sidewalks

Dylan Scott

Great training shoes!

I’m getting back into running by training for a 5k after a 10 year break. I’ve been on a half-dozen runs in these shoes on both road and trails and have been pleased about how supportive and snug they are. Perfect fit. Would recommend!

Mike Potts

They arrived very quickly, and they feel great. The uppers are too snug for me, unless I remove the insoles. Otherwise, I really like them.

Scott S.

For the past 25-years, I've only worn shoes made by the big brand that sponsored our college team. After reading about Enda, I decided to stray. I'm so happy that I did! The upper keep my feet securely connected - especially the heal. The lower provides this fantastic ratio of cushion, protection, and responsiveness - even on the gravel-sand forest roads I run on most days. During my strides, the shoes seem to help keep my body positioned positively - by seemingly promoting my forefoot strike. I've also noticed that I am less sore after my runs. I'm so taken by the Lapatet, that it has become my go-to daily shoe... and will likely be the shoe I race in.
