Enda was founded with a mission of bringing Kenyan athletic greatness to runners everywhere and fueling economic development in Kenya. A portion of every Enda shoe purchase goes towards social wellbeing initiatives in Kenya called The Enda Community Foundation. Enda is also a Climate Neutral Certified company. The Lapatet is a daily trainer designed for the bulk of your weekly mileage. Amply cushioned with 24mm of cushion under the forefoot and a sock-like upper, it is the obvious choice for easy and longer runs. Enda's shoes are packed with Kenyan cultural elements throughout. The name itself, "Lapatet", means running in the Kalenjin language and is how most Kenyan athletes say running. The eyelet color touches are of the national flag - black, red and green. The uppers incorporate the look of the waves of Indian Ocean, the wind through the Savannah grasses and the clouds in the sky. Kenyan's Great Rift Valley creates the perfect altitude and climate for training, which they pay tribute to with a topographical map down the center of the Lapatet's sole. Even this Mara Gold color represents the rich yellow hue of the savannah grasses.
