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.

Great colors! They match the colours of the college where I teach :) I love supporting a company that shows concern for social and environmental impact and seems more personal. I like the sole because it is not too cushy, but it is still comfortable. I do not like the hard material that the laces go into. It is bothersome on the joints of my feet. I am thinking about using a seem ripper to remove them. I think the shoes will still be snug, the way they are designed. Anyway, I would not purchase this design again due to this issue.

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!

excellent build quality, light and sturdy

I love my Superb Starling shoe and had the pleasure of traveling halfway across the world to the United States with it recently and it was the most comfortable shoe ever. Almost everyone I met asked me about the shoes. They loved them.
