Akasha

These are another legacy product from La Sportiva. They along with the Mythos, TC Pro, and the Nepal Mtn boots simply define the category. For single track mountain trail running I’ve not found a better shoe. I will continue to buy them as long as they are available. It is a comfortable stable shoe. The midsole density is dense enough to help with trail feedback when you misstep on a down hill allowing you to correct your foot placement. A mega cushion shoe hampers this in my experience. The toe bumper is perfect. I wore Ultra Raptors and the toe bumper blistered my feet on a backpack trip. No blisters with these as it doesn’t lay over onto the top of my toes. Well padded tongue. They just work. No need for gimmicks. I’m surprised La Sportiva no longer imports them to North American markets. For mountain running for my needs there simply is no better shoe.

Perfect trail shoe

Grip is so good. Great fit, even for my feet which are wide. Had to go a whole size up though. Ran 2 10 milers before heading into a 25 mile trail run in Yorkshire and they were great. Definitely recommend

As the ground is harding up, I wanted some cushioning compared to my Altras. Recommended by a friend who swears by these ( he’s ran several ultras) who am I to argue? Wider than other sportivas I’ve worn, super comfy when walking the cliff paths, good traction, comfy with no foot roll when running & I felt in control in any descents. I run on a mix of terrain, woodland, coastal, moor & these handle all. I went a full size up in shoe size
