The La Sportiva Kaptiva Womens is a trail running shoe dedicated to medium and long distance races such as skyraces and mountain running tracks.

With an innovative knit fabric and SLIP-ON construction, the La Sportiva Kaptiva Womens has minimised volumes of each individual piece of the shoe, optimising the overall dimensions and the layers of material for wraparound, to provide a super clean structure that is dedicated to the runner’s performance. The fit is snug and comfortable, free of empty, destabilising volumes. The stretch, mono-layer cuff sticks to the heel like a sock avoiding overlapping layers and preventing external agents from entering the shoe, facilitating at the same time the entry of the foot and the operation of fit. The sole/midsole package aims at providing the perfect balance between fluidity, stability, flexibility and traction thanks to the longitudinal cuts in the tread of the super grippy and extremely durable FriXion White compound with Impact Brake System lugs of different angle inclinations. Kaptiva: unleash your run.

Features

  •  Comfortable, snug fit, without empty, destabilising volumes.
  • New “Trust-Fit”shape, wraparound comfort designed for athletes who take part in medium/long-distance technical competitions.
  • SLIP-ON construction in knit fabric: reduces the volume of each single piece of the shoe to a minimum, optimising the overall dimensions and the layers of material for a wraparound, super clean and performance oriented structure.
  • The stretch, mono-layer cuff sticks to the ankle like a sock avoiding overlapping layers and preventing external agents from entering the shoe, while facilitating the entry of the foot and the fitting operations.
  • The sole/midsole package aims at providing the perfect balance between fluidity, stability, flexibility and traction.
  • The sole is fitted with Impact Brake System lugs of different angle inclinations.

    Second time around with the Akashas!

    I've had these shoes in the past and remembered them fondly so when I needed to replace my latest trail shoes and couldn't be bothered to shop around I just got these again! Rock+Run were very helpful when I needed to change up a size! (I've done a lot of running since I last had akashas and my feet have 'splayed'!) Incidentally I have a couple of friends who have loved this shoe too. I think it's quite versatile in that it's a good mountain/technical trail shoe but I'm happy on long hardpacked bridleways too, on account of the lovely cushioned insole. The only issue - and I had this with my previous pair too - was that the cushion on the achilles seems quite bulky. I haven't had a blister from it but it does feel slightly odd when I first put them on. Not enough to put me off the shoe though.

    Got me round Lakeland 100

    I still got trench foot and blisters at Lakeland 100 (2018) but I finished, and that was an achievement for a back of pack runner like me when 49% didn’t. These shoes have great grip and are comfy. Sometimes the conditions are just too rubbish for even the best.

    Excellent Shoe/ service

    This is my second pair of the Ashaka. The first pair got me though UTMB 2017. Great grip and comfort. Service great, arrived quickly as as expected. First time buyer from Rock & Run so pleased.
