Koobi Fora Overview
Our first ever trail shoe the Koobi Fora, is meant for taking on dirt and rock trails, but still comfortable enough if you end up doing part of your run on the tarmac.
Unfortunately, we discovered aesthetic issues with some of the shoes with creasing in the toe and some visible glue around the sole. We know from spot checks that we still have some stock that has this issue, and have decided to offer all remaining shoes with a final sale discount.
Creasing & Glue
We used a new material (Ariaprene) that has great performance capabilities but acts differently than our previous knit uppers.
The fabric needs a special steaming and cool down process as we attach it to the sole where we need to be extremely precise with glue to avoid issues.
Since the creases and glue are not immediately apparent for several hours or days, some of the models arrived with issues.
We want to reinforce that the creasing and slight signs of glue at sole are aesthetic only, and does not hinder the performance. Customers are loving the performance so far.
5/5- Comfortable, very good feel and attractive shoe. The colours are awesome!
5/5- So happy for my new Enda trail shoes. They are very comfy and nice to wear. Love to use them for hiking in all terrain.
Creasing and glue issues vary by colour and shoe but the performance of the shoe is still strong.
All of our existing stock are sold at 40% off the initial price regardless of severity of each shoe. All shoes will be final sale. You may receive a shoe with minimal or no issues, or it could have some aesthetic problems. Our goal is to put the shoes to use, and avoid landfills while we improve future pairs.
