Come race day, these La Sportiva Vertical K trail-running shoes will offer you featherweight, responsive performance that rides close to the ground without compromising cushioning.

  • Nylon mesh uppers reduce weight, enhance breathability; built-in 4-way stretch nylon gaiters keep trail debris out, minimize seams and offer a great fit
  • Polyurethane toe caps protect feet and uppers; sturdy, reinforced heel loops double as a clip-in point for easy transport
  • Mesh nylon linings wick moisture to help keep feet comfortable
  • Dynamic midsoles are made of 2 layers of different materials—just under the foot, an ergnomically shaped, firm EVA layer offers light stability and extra cushioning
  • Below the EVA layer is a soft, lightweight layer of foam that delivers excellent cushioning, helps dissipate impact shocks and conforms to uneven terrain
  • Wrapping the layer, the shaped FriXion® XF rubber outsoles of the La Sportiva Vertical K shoes offer increased surface area contact for great feel and responsiveness
