From Us At Enda

Finally here! Today, yes, today we’re releasing a new revamped version of the Enda Lapatet. You asked, and we listened. A lighter, more comfortable, more durable, and an amazing accommodating fit. Meet the Somali Ostrich Lapatets.

The Somali Ostrich Lapatet comes in Black with a touch of anthracite on the midsole, and a Double-black option. As usual, It is a limited edition, make sure to get yours now.

To summarize what’s new : 

We completely reworked the upper. The new knit pattern is a full booty knit design and is lighter and more breathable. It now achieves what we’ve always wanted in the Lapatet upper: a true sock-like feel. 

We’ve also changed the lacing system to an internal saddle that wraps the midfoot for a secure lockdown, without constraining the foot across the toe joints.

Finally, the midsole and outsole are just as you remember them from before. A soft pocket under the midfoot with firmer portions at heel and toe to reward the foot landing under the center of mass, rather than promoting overstriding with heel crashpads

It was Horace against the clock

Horace Austin at finish line
Sometimes it is seeing a family member catching up to you on a course, or friends cheering you on a race day. Other times, it's you, family and friends, and the Clock! 
This past weekend, Horace Austin just PRed at the Fletcher's Cove park run. Here is @slickq_lion wrapping up the 5K at the park run that's themed: It's you against the clock😃.

Enda elite, Joan at the finish line

Enda elite Joan Cherop Massah has been lighting up the streets of Iowa with podium finishes. This past weekend, Joan emerged second among female elites and eighth overall at the Bix 7 road race. The 7 -mile road race is always held on the last Saturday of July, but had a slight change from last year due to the pandemic.

Gutted but not down: Geoffrey Kamwaror

Geoffrey Kamworor, the world half marathon defending champion and world record holder, will be sitting it out and will not be headlining the team from Kenya. 

In an emotional post on his Instagram page, Kamwaror explains the tough decision he had to make citing it to an injury in his foot. This is somewhat the very feeling Geoffrey had in 2020 when he also withdrew from the World Half Marathon Championships held on 17 October in Gdynia, Poland.

It's a sad affair that he won't be gracing our screens in the coming days but all we can do is to wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him soon.

Athletics Kenya names Kamwaror’s replacement

In Geoffrey's absence, Rhonex Kipruto is the man to watch.

Rhonex Kipruto is set to replace Kamwaror in the 10,000m race. A 2019 World Bronze medalist and a brave runner for that matter. Rhonex is geared to cause some serious action in the coming days. You can watch here a bit of Rhonex's epic moments from his previous races just to give you a glimpse of what to expect. We wish him the very best.

A bigger motivation beyond the medal

British sprinter Dina Asher-Smith says she has more to show at the big stage.

As a brand that insists on fairness, justice, and equality in the world, we must say we really admire Asher Smith’s resolve. We all ought to grasp every moment to speak up, and always use every opportunity to address social issues. Always good to see
