La Sportiva Uragano GTX

Dec 22, 2016

Category: Gear

For as simple and pure as running is, each different type has its own peculiarities that require both a different approach from the runner, and a slightly different set of gear. For 5k runs, we have our regular runners, for the track, our spiked shoes, and for the trail? If you are lucky, you’ll b wearinge La Sportiva’s newly announced Uragano GTX.

It is honestly hard to know where to start with this shoe. Just about every part of it – from the FriXion V-Groove outsole to the 4-way stretch dynamic gaiter – is perfectly designed for the trail runner. Built to be quickly slipped on, it features a fast-lacing system that tightens with a simple yank. Once pulled tight, the AirMesh upper made with a Waterproof Gore-Tex lining and Gore-Flex technology hugs close to the runners foot, both protecting it from wet weather and muck, while also remaining breathable. For a solid balance even on the rockiest and uneven trails, the midsole is made from an injection molded EVA and features a TPU stabilizer in the heel. The only real downside to this shoe is that it isn’t going to be released until Fall 2017. When it hits retail stores, expect it to go for around $180. [Purchase]
