The La Sportiva Akasha are an ultra-trail running shoe that offer great shock absorption, and are designed for long distance trails, Ultra-Marathons, Ultra-Trails and for use on long training sessions. Akasha, a Sanskrit word that stays for ‘ether’, is the La Sportiva Mountain Running shoe with the greatest shock absorption: dedicated to the world of endurance competitions. The Cushion Platform footbed provides excellent shock absorption and comfort together with the wide internal volume, the soft, breathable, and snug fitting uppers and a slip on construction that eliminates compression points during the race. The innovative front active inserts, Dynamic ProTechTion, provide protection and structure following the foot in a dynamic way and without constrictions. The dual mix FriXion XT grippy sole is equipped with the exclusive Trail Rocker solution to promote the natural movement ‘external heel internal toe’ of the foot during running. La Sportiva Akasha running shoes use EVA injected midsoles which differ from the standard compression molded EVA midsoles for a high degree of cushioning and a better elasticity of the fabric. These features assist ‘push off’ during the propulsion phase while running, making these models ideal for use on offroad trails. Furthermore, EVA injected midsoles drastically reduce the ‘squash’ effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to maintain the same characteristics and high performance for its entire duration.

The world of trail running is characterised by a series of very different approaches to off-road running.
Depending on the type of ground, the length of the track, the climatic conditions and the fitness of the runner, there are many different ways to interpret off-road running. It is therefore important to choose the boot that meets your demands and the shape of your foot.
La Sportiva has created 3 segments in the field of off-road running based on the distance of the track and thus the type of use intended. La Sportiva Akasha is designed to provide grip and stability in all ground conditions. The La Sportiva Akasha is ideal for long distance, ultra trail and ultra marathon competitions or demanding training sessions. An extremely protective and shock absorbing boot.
