Last summer’s new sports trend, trail running, is still going strong in 2017 and is even taking on different shapes. A slight variation of it is the so-called “mountain running”, which not only features trails but also mountains. The additional climb challenges both the runner’s body and the equipment s/he uses, especially the shoes. This is why, this summer, our partner La Sportiva has launched a whole new shoe category for mountain running.
The La Sportiva Mountain Running shoe collection is particularly hardwearing, so the shoes withstand rough treatment time and again. Another aspect of La Sportiva mountain running shoes is their low weight, which, over longer distances, can make all the difference. Apart from that, these shoes come with a non-slip sole that guarantees a good grip on loose or even wet terrains. Our partner achieves this excellent grip with a La Sportiva Frixion® XT sole, whose double-rubber mix also provides damping with a good feel of the ground, as well as abrasion resistance. We now have the La Sportiva Mountain Running range in our selection - find it here.
