The La Sportiva VK is a specific footwear for running the Vertical Kilometer. Performed in collaboration with the record-man of the discipline, Urban Zemmer. Weight and volume reduced to the minimum to have the maximum benefits. Super-wraparound upper area made of Sock-Like technology that allows you to obtain a single piece of knitted fabric with differentiated elasticity and thermosetting stabilizer panels, eliminates seams and wraps like a sock. Built-in asymmetric locking Ghost-Stream Lace System: The upper structure of the footwear wraps 360º and closes with the cords laterally. Every detail is designed for maximum weight savings and to meet the demands of the La Sportiva Mountain Running Team. Super-lightweight rubber-reinforced sole at the front, rock-guard at the toe for added protection and a high abrasion-resistant EVA midsole at the back: designed for maximum lightness and optimized thrust vertically during races verticals.
