La Sportiva Mutant Trail Running Shoes - SS16 The La Sportiva Mutant is an aggressive, durable and neutral mountain running shoe which is ideal for trail running and off-road trials on different types of terrain. The Mutant has quick fit shoe just like traditional shoes, with thanks to the spiral opening of the gaiter, these shoes are easy to get on and off. These versatile shoes have been created for number of off-road runs such as mountain running and city park running as they have high stability, shock absorption and comfort. Upper The upper and the lining of the Mutant trail running shoe is made with airmesh nylon fabric woven into breathable mesh pattern that is extremely durable. Also made with TPU, which is highly abrasion resistant and is extremely strong in cold temperatures. An integrated lacing system with FusionGateTM technology and high frequency reinforcements allowing for volume regulation and foot adherence. Also added to the Mutant is SpyralTongueTM technology which is an integrated gaiter that hugs the lower part of the ankle while keeping the cuff tight and avoiding coming into contact with external elements. Midsole The Mutant uses EVA injected midsoles which differ from the compression molded EVA midsoles for high degree of cushioning and better elasticity of the fabric. These feature assist "push off" during the propulsion phase while running, making these models ideal for use on off-road trials. Also EVA injected midsoles reduce the "squash" effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to maintain the same characteristics and high performance for its entire duration. An anti-torsion "stabilizer" insert is also included in the midsole. Outsole The Mutant sole is made from FriXion® XF, which is very sticky, versatile rubber compound which will give extreme grip while out running. The soles are particularly suited to racing on soft and muddy ground thanks to the width of the shoe and the distance of the lugs that make u
