The La Sportiva Bushido is technical off-road running shoe specially designed for the world of skyrunning but equally adept at all manner of trail running events and training: super lightweight, sticky, aggressive.

Designed to guarantee perfect stability on all types of off-road terrain thanks to the “STB Control” construction, a new concept in the world of Mountain running shoes. The TPU frame at the side of the uppers reaches and embraces the midsole in the medial part of the boot. This creates a snug fitting shoe with greater stability thanks to the upper and midsole working together in synergy. It also makes the product even more lightweight by avoiding having to insert heavy stabilizers into the central part of the shoe. The dual mix sole has graded touchpoints. The rounded shape of the external lugs, which gradually rise laterally to touch the midsole, create a continuous contact with the ground, thus maintaining stability in the case of extreme foot torsion. This allows the user to run in safety, even over technical terrain or in the presence of roots, stones and branches. The maximum support and snug fit of the medial part of the foot does not compromise freedom of movement for the toe. The result is a shoe in true La Sportiva style, satisfying the innovative solutions requested by the most demanding runners; rewriting the rules of the game with a totally new construction, never seen before in the trail running category.

Bushido: the new way of the trail runner.

La Sportiva Bushido

My second pair after La Sportiva discontinued the fantastic Anakondas. La Sportivas generally fit me well, and I wanted minimal drop from heel to toe - this was the best they could offer. The Bushidos saw me around the tough 30km four passes event in Cumbria in October 2017.They dealt superbly with wet rock, mud, slick grass, and gravelly tracks. The last few weeks I've been fell and trail running in snow and ice - no problems. I'd been running in the last pair for 5 months, around 50-60k a week on mixed trail and fell with no issues - only reason to buy another pair so soon was so I could always have a dry pair ready to go! Complaints are few, but the laces need to be a few inches longer so they can be tied double - they're undoing themselves every five minutes otherwise. I ended up putting some others in. To complete the package some dedicated mini-gaiters would be a bonus to stop gravel or snow flicking in. Overall good value - if you have La Sportiva shaped feet and want to run mixed terrain these are worth a go.

La Sportiva Bushido

comfortable shoe and great on most surfaces apart from mud. Went up a size from normal to give more space at the toe.

Decent Skyrunning Shoes

Purchased for the Glencoe Skyline. Fit was good around the heel, a little narrow at the toe - I went for a half size larger to compensate. Grip was excellent on everything except slick smooth rocks, where few running shoes would grip anyway. Went for these after years of using Salomons. Pretty happy with the decision.

La Sportiva Bushido

Comfortable shoe, grippy on most surfaces. Had to order a larger size but no problem swapping with Rock and Run. The shoes are not the best in mud but great otherwise.
