Only 2 items in stock!


  • Flexible ballistic fabric rock plate
  • Water-resistant upper

  • Just 9.7oz (275grams) in a Men's 9 or Women's 10.5

The Koobi Fora is a nimble trail shoe that allows you to dance over any terrain. 

The Koobi Fora has a water resistant shield over the front of the foot and a quick-drying ariaprene-fabric booty that hugs your foot around the heel. So if you run through wet grass or splash through a puddle, you’ll stay dry but if you dunk your whole foot in a river, it will dry quickly.

Your shoes may be perfect or you might see some slight creasing on the upper, that is why we are selling them at a final discount.

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

    Great travel shoe!

    I know that seems a strange headline, but I was looking for a light travel shoe that would handle off road activities. The Koobi turned out to be the shoe to fit the bill. I've only run a few times in it so far, but it performed well and was surprisingly comfortable wearing it on long travel days.

    Very happy with my purchase.

    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
