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 Iten is the perfect lightweight trainer. Built for your faster, shorter runs, it's robust enough to keep you going if you chose to go longer. The midsole allows your foot and ankle to go through a full range of motion, yet provides a responsive under-foot ride. Enda's shoes are packed with Kenyan cultural elements throughout. The name itself,"Iten", is named after the small town nestled in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, known as the Home of Champions. Iten has produced more Olympic gold medals in distance running than anywhere else. The geometric patters of the Maasai beading and Swahili lesos are visible in the upper detailing as are Jamhuri lines - representative of Kenya's independence day, Jamhuri Day. The solid color options of black, red and green stand for the national colors of Kenya. Black for the people, red for the blood spilled fighting for independence and green for the natural diverse plant of the region.
