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.
