When it comes to crushing trails, don't settle for just any old shoe. Make sure your feet are properly ensconced within the La Sportiva Men's Ultra Raptor GTX Trail Running Shoe. When the trails are wet, the Gore Tex Extended Comfort lining helps keep your feet dry. A mesh upper with abrasion resistant microfiber gives excellent comfort and breathability for when the temperatures inevitably creep upward. You don't want to be worrying about slipping on roots and rocks along the way, so La Sportiva used Frixion XF rubber for an extremely grippy, high traction sole that won't leave you on your ass when things get slick. A nylon shank throughout the midsole gives you just enough stiffness to help avoid rolling ankles, without making these feel like you're running in clunky mountaineering boots.
