La Sportiva Akasha II Running Shoe

Size Chart

Turning Trails Into Clouds

The La Sportiva Men’s Akasha II Trail Running is ideal for difficult trails and long-distance training. It has an airy mesh upper that retains its structure with an Exo-Skeleton, and La Sportiva reinforced the upper this season for longer lasting durability. The Akasha II has a softer flex than most trail running shoes for extra shock absorption. TPU inserts add stability and support for trickier parts of the trail. The rocked rubber sole encourages a natural gait, and La Sportiva’s Impact Brake System enhances control when your swift stride’s interrupted by a stick.
