Optimal protection on any terrain: the Ultra Raptor II GORE-TEX® Trekking Shoe from La Sportiva
The GORE-TEX membrane lining allows the transport of sweat but prevents water penetration, making this shoe ideal for winter running. The rear stabilizing heel insert allows a perfect control on cross passages. The lacing system is integrated with the upper, through eyelets sewn on the inner elastic fabrics and reinforcements in hard plastic on the outer mesh: this system allows the distribution of the tension of the lacing on the whole upper for maximum comfort. The result is a lightweight, technical shoe that can be worn for several hours, perfectly suited for off-road running on any terrain.
Features - Ultra Raptor II GTX
- Upper made of highly breathable air mesh fabric
- Mesh lining with friction resistant microfiber insert
- Stabilizing heel insert at the rear for stabilization and for perfect control on cross passages

Comfortable shoe, ideal for training and long distance running.
EVA - INJECTED
The injected sole has high cushioning properties and elasticity of the material. These features supported the forward imprint during running and therefore these models are particularly suitable for off-road trails. Injected midsoles made of EVA reduce compression phenomena of the midsole, which can appear as the life of the shoe progresses, allowing the material to maintain the same performance characteristics.
Optimal fit, comfortable to wear. Guaranteed waterproof. Get the most out of every single mile. Whether you're jogging every now and then, training for a marathon, or just like to wear athletic shoes, La Sportiva makes sure the weather can't hurt you. GORE-TEX Invisible Fit shoes give you the perfect fit, feel and style the way you like it, and also deliver on the GORE-TEX GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise - this is especially true for sneakers with knitted uppers.
Impact Brake System
Designed and developed at La Sportiva's R&D center, it offers real benefits during running: the negative effect created by impact with the ground is minimized. Due to the special arrangement of the pimples, some come into contact with the ground before, thus softening the impact of the shoe profile.
