Bushido is the name of a moral code of conduct for Japanese Samurais. We’re not sure what that has to do with La Sportiva’s Bushido II shoe, unless, of course, the Samurais were trail runners that appreciated responsive, durable and protective shoes. If that’s the case, they’re not alone. They’ve been immensely popular with the skyrunning crowd for those exact reasons. Somehow thou..

When running long distances on trail, it’s a good idea to have a Jackal amount of cushion for your feet.
