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.

Love them!

Thank you - I love them! They will get a lot of wear & tear from me and if they hold up, I will buy some more. Look forward to seeing new colours...

Great Shoes!

I was positively surprised by the comfort and lightness of the Iten-Samburu I just bought. My first couple of runs were just incredible. Their look is catchy and their performance is top. Too good to be true! Thanks !!!!!

So thrilled to sport my Iten-Samburu 💛 in Dubai!

I first heard about the brand on a podcast called How to Make it in Africa. The host interviewed the co-founder Navalayo Osembo back in 2021. I kept following the brand and noticed the product line growing beautifully. Shipping became more accessible, so finally made my order in Jan 2024. I received my order within a few weeks by DHL, which also handled customs for an extra small fee. I adore the shoes, the design and colors are so vibrant, it truly conveys harmony. I got compliments every time I wore it and I’m extremely comfortable. I’m so proud to walk and run Kenyan!
