A Gore-Tex, waterproof shoe ideal for winter running. A structured and protective shoe, ideal for Ultra Trails, Ultra Marathons and winter training sessions. Akyra GTX is a particularly snug fitting, comfortable and breathable shoe. It uses a mesh,waterproof upper that is extremely snug fitting and a 3 layer construction that provides: comfort, thanks to the seamless construction; flexibility and structure thanks to the innovative MicroLite Skeleton that follows the natural movement of the foot when running; protection thanks to the Flex-Guard inserts that offer a lightweight barrier against abrasion during rocks and roots while running.
Exceptional stability is provided thanks to the TrailCage System which is placed between the two layers of the uppers to give structure and a snug fit, and is fully integrated with the lacing system. The outsole has been developed by the La Sportiva R&D department and uses the grippy FriXion XT with Impact Brake System and an exclusive design with Trail Rocker technology to facilitate “external heel –internal toe” motion while running. Shock absorbing, protection and comfort, 3 layers in perfect geometry: origami inspires the overall design of the boot. With Akyra, winter running is an art.
Mid long distance
Versatile shoes created for a number of off-road runs such as skyraces, mountain running and city park running. High level of stability, shock absorption and comfort.
Gore-Tex Extended Comfort
This membrane is designed for indoor and outdoor use in temperate and warmer conditions or for a higher level of activity. Shoes with Gore-Tex Extended Comfort Technology are durably waterproof with optimized breathability. Thanks to their non-insulated construction, they are the ideal solution for people who appreciate excellent climate comfort and heat dissipation.
Versatile soles, ideal for all types of terrain including stone, scree, grass, moss and mud. Ideal for running either in high humidity or on dry ground. Incorporates the Impact Brake System.
Dual Mix Compound - The perfect combination of grip, long lasting wear and shock absorption. Used on versatile, dual density soles.
EVA - Injected
Higher degree of cushoning and high elasticity of the fabric. These features assist “push off” during the propulsion phase while running, making these models who use injected midsoles, ideal for use on off-road trails. Furthermore, EVA Injected midsole drastically reduce the “squash” effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to mantain the same features for its entire duration.
Impact Brake System
Innovative sole-mounted system that cushions impact, helps ascend and prevents forward slipping when descending. Designed and developed at the La Sportiva Research and Development Centre in collaboration with Vibram, it offers the user real benefits by reducing the negative impact with the ground thanks to the particularly inclined position of the shoe studs on the profile.
