The waterproof Kaptiva GTX are light and efficient trail running shoes from La Sportiva. Like a second skin, the upper shoe with its TRUST-FIT shape sits on the foot and stabilises as well as allowing plenty of freedom of movement. In the forefoot area, non-deformable mesh with TPU reinforcements was used to provide more safety. All ideal conditions for medium and long distances!
The Slip-On construction not only reduces the volume, it also makes it easier to put on and take off and protects against penetrating stones, earth and sand. The grippy and durable FirXion-White rubber outsole comes with lateral grooves and offers perfect grip. And when things go downhill, the differentiated shoe nubs of the Impact Brakes System show their skills.

The neutral shoe or cushioning shoe is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). It is therefore particularly suitable for runners who have a regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not bend inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used in competitions, fast training or long endurance sessions. The cushioning can vary depending on the intended use. In order to achieve a more direct ground contact in competition, it is advisable to use a slightly damped shoe. In training on hard surfaces or with long units, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
