La Sportiva Crosslite
Price Paid: $89.95
I tried a lot of trail shoes in a short time trying to find something that just feels perfect.
Well I got my first pair of Crosslites for Fathers Day. I put them on right out of the box and hit the trails. They were like getting 4 wheel drive for your feet. I like something light and minimal and I feel these really fit the bill.
When you were a kid and got a new pair of shoes did anyone ever tell you you will be able to run faster? Well I feel that way every time I put these on and they feel good no matter whether I am running 5 miles or 50.
So as of right now I am sold.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Crosslite Trail Running Shoe by La Sportiva is a super burly yet lightweight trail racing shoe made for the most extreme conditions. Wide spaced lugs help to shed mud and grass, keeping more traction with your stride. A simple mesh upper that helps your foot to breathe while protecting you with an integral scree guard. The outsole is made with FriXion, a rubber that draws on La Sportiva's mountaineering hertiage. FriXion is extremely sticky, designed to give you superior grip on rock surfaces that are wet, dry, loose or consolidated. The Crosslite is featherweight and made for racing, giving you support with its Impact Brake System V-Groove cushioning that keeps you from fatiguing and allows you to finish the race.
