Trail shoe review La Sportiva Crosslite 4

When I think of all the trail shoes I ‘ve used over the years there are two models that really made an impact on trail running. Remember the Nike Terra Torre? Killer trail shoe from the early 90’s and of coarse the One Sport which became the Montrail Vitesse.

Well now there’s the La Sportiva Crosslite, this shoe is by far the best trail shoe I have ever run in, keep in mind this shoe works well in the rugged Wasatch Mountain Range. The Crosslite has a beefy sole with lugs that provide super traction and support to bomb down the nastiest scree field you can find. The shoe fits so well your foot doesn’t slide around and give you toe bang like the floaty boaty Montrail Vitesse. The upper portion of the shoe has a real light breathable material that allows water to drain  quickly after crossing those creeks. Looking forward to trying the Crosslites at the Pocatello 50, Bighorn 100, Wasatch 100, Oil City 100.
