This collection was inspired by Kenya’s magnificent birds

The Superb Starling (Lamprotornis superbus) is a gregarious and fearless bird. You will see them all over Kenya. We adopted the characteristic deep blue, and bold dash of coppery orange hues of the Superb Starling’s plumage to make this collection.

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

Stylish and Comfortable! Love it

Very comfortable and stylish! I was very impressed! I will most certainly order more. I did have to size up but that is not an issue at all. I will continue to support and look forward to new styles.

Tom Morton
Lapatet - Men - Secretary Bird

I like the shoes, but less than the original version, which I would give a 5 star rating to. The new lacing system does not have a tongue, so you cannot "open" the shoe while you put it on. This can lead to your socks getting jammed onto your toes which is uncomfortable - not sure what the solution is.

further in the heel area

I like the new one, it is further in the heel, the old lapatet fitted me perfectly.

Tomás Corredor

In the last 14 days since my Enda Lapatet Superb Starling arrived, I have run with them nine times for a distance of 64 km, averaging 10.31 km/h.
I feel a change in my almost daily training since November when I started using the brand with some Enda Lapatet Rainbow; I have managed to maintain my times, but now I have improved my stride and cadence.
I'll see how the shoes continue to perform and post a new review after a while and more miles.

Updated Lapatet

Loving my new ENDAs. Picked up the updated Lapatet (much better heal padding for me - though I sized up from a 42.5 to a 44 as the new shoe (with the built-in tongue) is even more sock-like than the usually sock-like ENDAs.)

I also added some Solmali Ostrich Koobi Fora’s (these still run true-to-size for me at 42.5 and have loved those on my trail runs in rainy Washington DC as well as Nairobi’s Karura Forest!
