Meet our newest addition to the family: Koobi Fora. The Koobi Fora is a nimble trail shoe that allows you to dance over any terrain. Upfront of the upper is a ripstop fabric for extra protection and water resistance, and an ariaprene fabric booty that hugs your foot around the heel.

Unfortunately, we recently discovered an aesthetic issue with some of the shoes with creasing in the toe. We know from spot checks that we still have some stock that has this issue, and have decided to offer the shoe at a discount at the final sale.

Creasing issue varies by color and shoe, we want to give you clear examples of the issue. We want to be sure shoes are used as the performance is still strong. Your shoes may be perfect or you might see creasing, that is why we offer the discount at this time. Please see images in the carousel for examples of the issue.


  • Flexible ballistic fabric rock plate
  • Water-resistant upper

  • 18mm high-rebound EVA under the forefoot.

For a majority of people, the Endas are true to size.

Great Fit!

As a prior runner and athlete, I’ve had bilateral knee replacements since age 44. I’ve had a four pronged cultivator go through and through my foot, resulting in the need for shoe inserts. With these shoes I do not need the inserts and I do not feel any added pressure to my knees. I was initially impressed with these shoes because of the BCorp & Climate Neutral status because I am tired of US Corporate Citizens denying climate change and covering up their bad behavior, all while lobbying to muck up the environment more and exploit more marginalized communities around the world. I’m tired of the white settler colonial DNA and its easily corruptible power and will support any endeavor that is in touch with the above human world. But these shoes are so much more than I expected. They are incredibly comfortable, uniquely designed, and supportive of the marginalized, whom settler colonialists believe to ‘less than.’ The wider toe bed with thinner heel is perfect for my feet. Love the company and the shoes and I’m totally sold on BCorp’s and will refuse the US Corporate Citizen’s products as an act of non-violent subversion. Support those who support the environment and the communities around them. #GreenBeltMovement
