This collection was inspired by traditional clothing from Kenya's diverse cultural groups.

The Samburu, a Nilotic-speaking community, are pastoralists from Northern Kenya. They are famous for their colorful, elaborate clothing and accessories. It is from this elaborate palette that we made our shoes.

To the Samburu, each color has a meaning. Green for pasture, red for blood from their cattle (a symbol of wealth), yellow for harmony, blue means water, and white for purity. For the Iten Samburu, we took inspiration from the colors yellow, blue, and red.

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

Enjoying them so far

Good quality, comfort and feel so far. I have my first race coming up in late April so looking forward to see how myself (and the shoes perform).


I’m relatively new to the world of running shoes but I’ve had these for a hot minute. They’re great quality and I’ve enjoyed running in them.

Best pair of running shoes yet. Ran my first marathon in them.

Four Pair

I have no plans of returning to Nike, ASICS, or Brooks. Enda meets all my footwear needs.

Decent Replacement for New Balance RC1400

Trying to find a long term replacement for the discontinued NB RC1400. The Iten is a low drop and light weight shoe, which is what I was looking for. The shoe hugs my feet, especially my slightly larger left one, more than my previous pair. The shoe has been good in my initial runs that ranges 3-5 miles. I wish it was wider in the tow box and more snug in the heel.
