State of the art technology and aesthetics: the Bushido II GORE-TEX® shoe by La Sportiva
Thanks to the STB Control construction, the TPU structure placed on the side of the upper reaches down and wraps the midsole in the middle area. This stabilizes the shoe. This solution allows for a tighter fit as well as better overall stability due to the synergistic work of the upper and midsole. Weight has also been reduced by eliminating the need for heavy stabilizer inserts in the midsection of the shoe.
The dual FriXion Red compound features differentiated set-up areas: The round shape of the external lugs, which extend laterally to the midsole, creates a progressive set-up angle with the terrain and maintains stability even when the foot is turned outward. Thus, this shoe allows you to run in complete safety even on highly technical terrain with roots, rocks and branches. Maximum support and envelopment in the mid-foot, freedom of movement and comfort on the toe. The result is a shoe in pure La Sportiva style that offers new solutions to meet the needs of the more demanding runners. The rules of the game are rewritten, with a construction that is an absolute novelty among trail running shoes.

Impact Brake System
Designed and developed in La Sportiva's Research and Development Center, it offers real advantages during running: the negative effect caused by impact with the ground is minimized. Due to the special arrangement of the pimples, some previously come into contact with the ground, thus softening the impact of the shoe profile.
