Product Description

Mountain running endurance shoe with great shock absorption, designed for long distance trails, Ultra-Marathons, Ultra-Trails and for use on long training session.

Akasha, a Sanskrit word that stays for “ether”, is the La Sportiva Mountain Running boot with the greatest shock absorption: dedicated to the world of endurance competitions, it is perfect on long distance runs, Ultra-Marathons, Ultra-Trails and for long training sessions. The Cushion Platform footbed provides excellent shock absorption and comfort together with the wide internal volume, the soft, breathable, and snug fitting uppers and a slip on construction that eliminates compression points during the race.

Special Features


The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.

First LaSportiva shoe. Really comfortable enveloping and light. Excellent for my weight (83kg). Tight sock for which an extra number is needed.

Prima scarpa LaSportiva. Veramente comoda avvolgente e leggera. Ottima per il mio peso (83kg). Calza stretto per cui è necessario un numero in più.

Correct cushioning even if I would have liked softer, resistant and flexible mesh, very good hanging, product with good finishes. This is my 2nd pair of akasha, I'm very happy with it.

Amorti correct même si j'aurai aimé plus doux, mesh résistant et souple, accroché très bonne, produit présentant de bonnes finitions. C'est ma 2eme paire d'akasha, j'en suis très content.

Is my first shoe from La Sportiva. Comfortable trail run shoe with good cushioning. Due to circumstances, I immediately did a 20k run, was no problem! Size larger is recommended, but are fine. Hill traction is also very good.

Is mijn eerste schoen van La Sportiva. Comfortabele trail run schoen met goede demping. Door omstandigheden de eerste keer direct een 20k run gedaan, was geen enkel probleem! Maat groter is aan te raden, maar zitten dan prima. Tractie op heuvels is ook erg goed.
