Akyra Trail Running Shoe

There are nice, easy, flat trails circling lakes that you could run for days on. The La Sportiva Women's Akyra Trail Running Shoe is not for those sorts of trails. Its Frixion sole's larger lugs grip off-trail—and even snowy sometimes—terrain with ease, and its Trail Rocker profile includes a springy 9mm drop to keep you speeding up steep trails like a gazelle. The origami-like upper sports breathable, cushy air mesh enveloped in a MicrolLite exoskeleton that enhances the shoe's supportive, secure fit. It also has Flex-Guard inserts to increase flexibility to the point you might feel like you were in road runners.

  • Stable trail runner suitable for aggressive terrain
  • Breathable air mesh upper wrapped in a supportive exoskeleton
  • 9mm drop initiates a powerful toe-off for a boost of speed
  • Shock absorbing midsole made of cushy, dual-layer EVA
  • Trail Rocker sole includes an Impact Brake System for increased traction

2nd pair, great shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 38.5

Unusually for LaSpo these fit my wide toe, narrow heel duck feet.
I've had a pair for a year - they provide great grip on ice, snow (with and without yaktracks) mud, rock, technical scrambling, yet aint too bad when you have to run on the road for a bit to get to the good stuff.
High drop might not be for everyone but I find them very confidence inspiring on steep slopes, and less fatiguing.
Lost count but probably done 500-1000 miles. Still going strong. Buying a new pair in a bigger size because I need more room in the toebox for particularly long, high altitude days.
These run SMALL compared to other brands so size up a half or full size, but they are wide compared to other la sportiva shoes.
