PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS

The Lapatet is a daily trainer, built for the bulk of your weekly milage. It's the perfect choice for easy runs, recovery runs, and long runs. 

Built for midfoot

 There's a soft pocket of high-rebound foam under the midfoot of the Lapatet, with firmer wedges of foam at the heel and toe. Rewarding a natural midfoot strike.

Cushioned

Not as soft as your sofa, but dang the Lapatet is comfortable. Total stack height of 24mm under the forefoot.

Light weight

At 9.2oz (260 grams) in a size 41, the Lapatet is astonishingly light for such a cushioned and robust shoe. 

Cultural Elements

More than just a great running shoe, the Lapatet is covered with little bits of the Kenyan culture.

Flag Eyelets

3 of the 4 colors of Kenya's flag encircle the top lace eyelets. Black for the people, red for the blood spilled for independence, and green for the plant life of Kenya.

Great Rift Valley

Kenya's Great Rift Valley creates the perfect altitude and climate for training . We pay tribute to it with a topographical map down the center of the Lapatet.

Kanga & Kikoi

We took patterns from two traditional Swahili fabrics and brought them to the tongue tag and pull tab.

The Name: Lapatet

Lapatet means running in some Kalenjin languages, a tribe in Kenya from which most of Kenya’s great runners come from. It’s how most Kenyan athletes say running.

The Waves

Inspiration for the Lapatet came from Kenya's natural features. Specifically, the waves we see when the wind blows over the Indian Ocean, the grasses of the savanna, and the clouds in the sky.

The Colors

The launch colorways were Angani Grey for the sky just before a storm, Watamu Blue for the Indian Ocean from the little town of Watamu, and Mara Gold for the rich yellow of the grass on the savannah.

Better For the world

Social impact

As we celebrate Kenya’s athletic excellence with runners across the globe, we deliver economic empowerment in Kenya. Both in production and by giving back to the community. Learn more.

Climate neutral

We measure our carbon footprint, reduce it, and then offset what we can’t eliminate. Plus all our packaging is reused or reusable. Nothing to the waste bin. 

Vegan Friendly

Lapatets and Itens are made free of animal byproducts or materials and are not tested on animals. Though sometimes they seem eager to check them out.

Best gift ever

Bought a pair of Enda Lapatet’s for my brother-in-law for his birthday. He was delighted! This can be a go-to gift purchase for special family members.

Love it

At first, my lapatets felt a bit too firm and too tight to my feet (I'm definitely going a 1/2 up in my next purchase). It took few km in them to break in and for me to enjoy the promised ride. It feels cushioned, but just what you need it to be; while providing enough support to eat mile after mile. I have now reached 650km in mine and I am still having a great time in them (long runs and easy runs).

Enda in Eire

My beautiful Lapatet running shoes arrived to me in their unique carry bag.
They felt so light and comfortable from the get go!
I’d suffered from shin splints for a long time now but with these shoes the improvement is amazing.
A lot of curious friends in Ireland here who I think will want their own piece of Kenya soon too!
Keep up the good work guys!
