State-of-the-art technology and aesthetics: the Bushido II GORE-TEX® shoe by La Sportiva
Thanks to the STB Control construction, the TPU skeleton attached to the side of the upper extends down to enclose the midsole in the medial area and stabilize the shoe. This solution allows for a tighter fit and greater overall stability thanks to the synergistic action of the upper and midsole, as well as lowering the weight of the product by eliminating the need to use heavy stabilizers in the central part of the shoe.
The FriXion Red dual-component sole features various support surfaces: The rounded shape of the outer lugs, which rise laterally and touch the midsole, creates a gradual support angle to the ground, maintaining stability even during extreme foot twisting. This allows for safe running even on more technical terrain with roots, rocks and branches. Maximum support on the inside of the foot, freedom of movement and comfort in the toe area. The result is a shoe that, in true La Sportiva style, offers new solutions to the needs of the most demanding runners and redefines the rules of the game with a completely new construction never seen before in trail running shoes. Bushido II: the new way for trail runners.

Impact Brake System
Designed and developed in La Sportiva's Research and Development Centre, it offers real advantages during running: the negative effect caused by impact with the ground is minimised. Thanks to the special arrangement of the studs, some of them come into contact with the ground beforehand, thus softening the impact of the shoe profile.
