Do your feet yearn for rough mountain trails that demand focus and precision? Do your dream runs have seemingly endless obstacles? Well if so, you are on the right track here. La Sportiva has worked tirelessly to re-engineer the latest iteration of their beloved Bushido to be a downright tactical and protective piece of footwear. This burly mountain running shoe inspires confidence on mixed mountain terrain by including an innovative fit, cushioning midsole, and a sticky but durable tread. It is incredibly supportive, responsively aggressive, and protective - all without an appreciable weight penalty. The Bushido II is the perfect shoe for any demanding mountain runner requiring an exacting tool to get them there and back with ultimate support and precision.

SkyRun Fit Tip - Pick your typical European size. We advise sizing up one-half US size if you are unsure of your Euro shoe size.

  • The beloved Bushido got a refresh to include more cushion.
  • Responsive performance and protection keep you moving with a smile.
  • Highly breathable mesh inserts and a stretch air mesh tongue keep things cool.
  • Foot protection comes from La Sportiva’s dual mix compound Frixion Red sole that provides an outstanding combination of long-lasting, high-density rubber and an innovative lug placement that assists in both shock absorption and grip.
  • EVA Rock-Guard in the forefoot to keep toenails intact.
  • The supportive ripstop skeleton on the upper is cleverly engineered to wrap around the midsole and provide outstanding support for big days.

To be honest, I wasn't looking for "refresh to include more cushion." I like the original Bushido better. And the tongue. What's up with the tongue? The combination of a new tongue, more cushion, and some new materials feels sloppy. Bushido I >> Bushido II.

I have loved this shoe for high pace, rough, off trail scrambling/running. The Bushido has a super snug fit, good support and solid protection from rocks without making the shoe numb to what your stepping on. I loved the way it felt like an extension of your foot hopping from rock to rock. I did find that compared to other shoes I did not get the cushioning for all day runs that I got in some others. But for shorter (3-4 hours) runs it technical terrain it was one of the best I have used.

I've gone thru 5 pairs of these, absolute favorite shoes for runs of any length on rough terrain. Narrow, aggressive fit with a stiff heel pocket and narrow footbox. Great stability in rough terrain but not too clunky to go fast. The soles are not as grippy as more scrambling oriented shoes like the Mutant but they are more durable. My only complaint is that the uppers get torn up if you spend a lot of time off trail I usually get 400 miles out of a pair with 100-200 of the miles being off trail.
