    Jackal Trail Running Shoe

    Designed to meet the demands of ultra-runners, this shoe has both the cushioning you need to go the distance and the traction and stability required for rugged terrain. In addition to a beefier midsole that attenuates shock and delivers comfort for all-day races, this shoe's got several stabilizing features for the trail, including an inner rock plate and PU inserts in the midsole. Meanwhile, high-traction rubber on the outsole keeps your footing secure on steep mountain trails.

    • Well-cushioned trail shoes designed for ultramarathon runners
    • Dual-compound midsole provides soft cushioning and stability
    • Lugged rubber outsole ensures steady traction on changing terrain
    • Upper was designed to adapt to the changing movement of your foot
    • Breathable mesh allows for cooling airflow on hot midday runs
    • Integrated rock plate guards against sharp rocks and sticks
    • Near-seamless upper was designed to reduce hotspots and discomfort

    The Jackal Runs!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 44 and 44.5

    Great lightweight rugged trail running shoe. Fits like a glove, although it runs small; order at least a half size up, maybe a full. I love them so much I bought a second pair. So I'm usually a solid 10.5 and I bought them in size 44 and then another pair in 44.5 so I can wear a thicker sock. Awesome shoe plus they look fast!

    Achilles tendon misery

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I've run in Bushido and Bushido II, both great. I've run in the Akasha, best running shoe ever. Got the Jackal's thinking all the reviews citing the "Achilles bump" were probably wrong. They weren't. Walking around the house the heel areas felt...weird. Twenty minutes into my run, rubbing got bad. Thirty minutes in I had to take a short cut back to the car. Blister through the skin in forty-five minutes. Other than the heel design, the shoe is fine. These are so uncomfortable that I can't even turn them into work shoes. I just threw them in the garbage. Now I'm on ebay trying to find a pair of Akashas for sale. So bummed. (I train about 15 hrs/week. 60% running/40% riding. My long trail runs are around 5hrs)

    I had the same issue. I tried to break them in several times, but eventually surrendered and bought some Mutants. I also didn't care for the sole design. They felt lifted and narrow like a platform shoe. I kept rolling my ankles to the point where I was spending all of my focus on my steps.

    Awesome long distance trail shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 43.5

    I bought my Jackal for longer distance runs on technical trails and when I want something wider and cushioned for banging out training miles. I upsized a 1/2 size from my standard EU size (43.5 from a 43.0) and that worked well for me. The Jackal is noticeably wider and higher volume in the forefoot and midfoot than my Bushido but still snug in the heel with noticeably more cushioning and protection under foot. Longer runs on rocky trails in Colorado are great for this shoe. I recommend the Jackal to anyone who wants La Sportiva traction and performance in a wider fit for long days on the dirt. Perfect for ultra distance races (next year).
