For the mud-loving trail runner on the hunt for a minimalist shoe, the low-profile La Sportiva Men's Anakonda Trail Running shoe is a dream come true. This shoe is low to the ground, lightweight, and packs tons of traction. The AirMesh upper is breathable, it drains away water quickly, and a TPU overlay provides ample lateral support. Stable and neutral for efficient runners, this shoe omits thick cushioning in favor of its Impact Brake System, which features opposing, slanted lugs that deform to absorb shock and provide grip on steep terrain, going up or down. La Sportiva makes two other minimalist-style trail running shoes: the Vertical K and the Helios. Both shoes are lighter and offer more cushioning, but neither can hold a candle to the traction or control offered by the Anakonda. Something like a burly track flat, this shoes leaves little between your foot and the ground, but it doesn't punish you for it. A dedicated trail runner can easily tackle short or middle distances runs wearing this shoe, whether the terrain calls for rolling, loamy single track or steep trails in deep in a wet forest. Breathable Poly Grid and AirMesh upper aids temperature regulation and drains away moisture in a flash so your foot stays dry and comfort during long, wet runs. TPU heel stabilizer ensures exceptional sure-footedness and control at the back of the foot. EZ-in pocket secures heel; and EVA AirMesh lining wicks away moisture, so you don't stew in sweat or slop. Durable MEMlex midsole and UltraGuard EVA insert combine to counteract the forces of uneven terrain and create a stable, neutral platform underfoot. Low, 4mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) means that there's just a 4mm difference between the measured height of your heel and the measured height of your forefoot. This low drop creates a natural foot position inside the shoe, encourages proper biomechanical flex, and allows you to more easily utilize a mid or forefoot striking style. Rigid forefoot insert protects the ball of your foot and toes from impact with roots, rocks, and other hazards on the trail. Sticky, aggressive FriXion XF rubber outsole provides sure footing on slick, uneven terrain. Impact Brake System V-Groove absorbs shock to reduce body strain, and its opposing slanted lugs grip into steep terrain uphill and downhill. Upper Material: AirMesh, Poly Grid. Lining: EVA AirMesh.
