When running long distances on trail, it’s a good idea to have a Jackal amount of cushion for your feet. Think about how many times per mile you step on rocks, roots, pebbles, sticks, and other hard uneven surfaces. Now multiply that number by a few dozen and you’re going to begin to understand why La Sportiva designed the Jackal this way. However, adding cushion with reckless abandon makes for a mushy, ineffective step. That’s why La Sportiva harnessed their brain power to create a shoe that gives you all the pros, and none of the cons. The genius concoction starts with a dual density rock guard outsole for security, adds an innovative compressed EVA midsole for stability, and tops it all off with their Infinitoo PU inserts for comfort. The Jackal conveniently accommodates wide-footed runners and the Frixion XT 2.0 rubber balances grip with durability and shock-absorbing power. Overall, the Jackal is a long distance power house!
