Features

With performance driven design, the Bushido is perfect for technical terrain and provides added stability over stones, roots and branches on the trail. The "STB Control" construction utilizes a TPU frame that wraps under foot to provide maximum stability, responsiveness, and reduce overall weight.

 

• Internal slip-on construction fits the foot like a sock without causing excessive pressure

• Outsole lugs have rounded edges and wrap over the midsole to provide added traction and enhance stability on off-camber terrain

Very pleased!
Great trail runner. Very responsive with great traction and good room up front in the toe box. I have a thinner foot and high arches. I usually wear a US 11.5. I bought the 45.5 size which fits great. Therefore, it seems like these might run a little small since a 45.5 equates to a US 12.
Hope his was helpful. Happy trails.

Best Trail Runner for Technical Terrain
The Bushido is a great trail-running shoe. I am on my second pair, running the first into the ground across a series of trail races from 10K-to-50K. My first pair continued in good service around town and in the garden until the holes in the fabric were too large. My second pair is in the Flame color and I really like the way they look.

La Sportiva has a history of making solid trail running shoes and this model combines features that are necessary for success on the rocky, root-laden trails of the trap-rock ridges in the Hartford Basin. Durable material on the outside of the sole, a sturdy toe-cap, and sticky rubber for excellent traction all work together to provide confidence running up and down the technical slopes here in Connecticut.

I've run in most brands, from Inov-8 and Montrail to Brooks and Saucony, and I have learned that the shoes designed by La Sportiva are simply the best. These Bushido trail runners lock my heel into place and provide plenty of room up front without becoming sloppy. The low profile and heel-drop give me that float-across-the-obstacles feel as I dance about the angular blocks of basalt and diabase riddling most trails here in the valley.

I highly recommend these shoes and hope that La Sportiva will continue produce the same or similar trail-running shoes in the years ahead - my two boys are now running in La Sportivas as well.

Review for Bushido
Extremely pleased with my Bushidos. These shoes have great fit, are very comfortable, light and good looking. I am not a competitive trail runner, but according to my Garmin GPS I ran in Bushidos this summer about 250 miles on mixed terrain. The shoes are very stable on rocky trails. Some extra sole cushioning could be beneficial to have, but I understand that it might add more weight to the shoes. My shoes are still holding on well, but have already nearly lost their grip due to excessive wear of lugs in the front part of the sole and under the heel. I have to mention that I also used these shoes for climbing Mt. Whitney with nearly 30 lb backpack, which was not a problem at all. I have already purchased my second pair of Bushidos for the next season. My wife also has got Bushidos and she loves them! Great product! I would not hesitate to recommend Bushidos to anyone shopping for a pair of good and comfortable trail runners.

Review for BUSHIDO
I am on my third pair of the Bushido, most recent version was updated under the arch and seems to hold up better in very rocky destructive terrain then the previous version. Have raced five 50k, three fifty milers and Idaho 100 in them and had great experience, although would like a bit more cushion in the longest distances. Looking forward to the Akasha, might be the perfect ultra shoe. Bushido's best feature for me is the fit, my foot holds well and has no hot spots, only one lace adjustment in 100 miles was a testament to the perfect fit.

Review for BUSHIDO
Wow! You guys nailed it. I've only done a handful of runs in the Bushido so far, but I am fairly confident that it is the shoe I've always been waiting for. It has the perfect mix of low weight, reduced drop, aggressive tread, AND finally some rock protection in the forefoot, something I've wanted for years. Please pass along my thanks to the design team for this one. I'll happily talk this shoe up at every opportunity.

Review for BUSHIDO
Hands down I have to say this is the best trail running shoe I have ever own. La Sportiva continues to make amazing products. I love the shoe feels and its super comfortable. It works great from the 5k to the marathon distance and I recommend this shoe to anyone.
