La Sportiva Akasha II Womens

Colour: Topaz/Red Plum
Topaz/Red Plum
Size: EU 36

The La Sportiva Akasha II is the technical redesign of the popular Akasha running shoe - dedicated to endurance competitions, and prolonged use during training.

Perfect for long-distance routes, UltraMarathons, Ultra-Trails and just pounding out the miles during your training, the Cushion Platform Ortholite® footbed provides maximum comfort thanks for the anti-compression technology, while the large internal volume of the shoe avoids compression points during use. Eco-friendly and washable, the footbed also facilitates the wicking of sweat thus keeping the foot dry.

The uppers are made from soft and breathable air mesh, with ProTechTion™ on the toe and PU leather on the rear of the heel to protect the foot whilst still allowing it to move dynamically and without constriction. Sole wise, La Sportiva have used FriXion® Red dual-compound rubber - the perfect mix of shock absorption, grip and long-lasting wear, while the Trail Rocker® promotes natural external heel to toe internal movement of the foot.

All in all - the Akasha II encompasses everything a long-distance runner would need - comfortable, durable and versatile across all terrain.

They are great for mid to long distances. Good sticky compound which work well on wet rock, grass, gravel and glacier. I just find I have to trim the insoles to prevent blisters

Akasha II - why did they mess with the toe box

Love the original Akasha, but the Akasha II seem to be 6mm narrower in the toe box causing rubbing against the side of my big toe. I'm also not a fan of the appearance that the sole is narrower underneath than the shoe....makes me feel unstable. And the tongue fabric traps more dirt than the old style. But overall still a great quality shoe and I'm sure I'll be back for another pair next year (I just wish shoe manufacturers wouldn't ruin something that already works well)
