Lightweight and aggressive, yet extremely stable, the La Sportiva Women’s Bushido mountain running shoes are ideal for trail-running, but also offer great support and stickiness for day hiking and fast-packing.
Unique "STB Control" construction in the Women’s Bushido features a TPU frame on the side of the upper that extends over the midsole to help stabilize the shoe’s fit by allowing the upper and midsole to work together synergistically. This construction also reduces weight since heavy stabilizers in the central part of the shoe are unnecessary and have been eliminated. Air Mesh in the upper offers excellent breathability, and a 1.5mm dual-density compressed EVA rock-guard is featured in the forefoot.
Weighing roughly 8.04 ounces per shoe, the Women’s Bushido has a gender-specific fit and a 6mm drop (14.5mm heel, 8.5mm toe). The compression-molded EVA foam midsole provides cushioned comfort and highly breathable lateral mesh insoles increase underfoot cushioning.
Aggressive outsole lugs have a rounded edge and rise laterally around the midsole to deliver excellent traction in mud, gravel and other loose trail surfaces. La Sportiva’s Impact Brake System technology is employed to increase braking power by an average of 20% and decrease impact forces by an average of 20% in the Women’s Bushido.
Sold in pairs, the La Sportiva Women’s Bushido mountain running shoe is available in a broad range of sizes (consult sizing chart for European conversions).
