Here's what other sites are saying:
La Sportiva's Skylite Featherweight Racing Shoe weighs so little that it almost defies gravity. Put these carefully crafted wings on your feet and you'll have trouble convincing yourself that you're not Karl Meltzer. This shoe features a simple mesh upper with an integrated scree gaiter to keep out the pebbles. La Sportiva also added a low-profile outsole that ensures sticky traction on all surfaces. A MEMlex midsole offers amazing cushioning for the weight. Fly over those mountain trails with a level of confidence you never thought possible.
