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.
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.
