Updates to La Sportiva Uragano GTX

  • The La Sportiva Uragano GTX is a running shoe that’s made for those who want sturdy apparel to help them tackle the great outdoors. It features an aggressive design to highlight its purpose as a companion for the trails.  Moreover, its façade has protective layers to act as shields against debris, rough surfaces, and water.
  • The midsole has a full-length foam that’s meant to carry the foot throughout the running session. It’s also intended to protect against potentially harmful elements on the trails. The gripping lugs on the outer pad are patterned in such a way that a lot of them would always be in contact with the ground, no matter the structure of the topography.

La Sportiva Uragano GTX size and fit

The La Sportiva Uragano GTX has a standard running shoe length. It adheres to the usual choices of consumers when it comes to size. The available width is D – Medium. It’s designed using men’s measurements, but it’s marketed as a unisex shoe. Female purchasers are encouraged to try on the shoe first to get a more pleasant in-shoe experience.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the La Sportiva Uragano GTX makes use of the FriXion® AT V-Groove™ which is a rubber compound that’s tough on the trails. It has V-shaped gripping lugs with shallow grooves to heighten grip on the surfaces.

The Impact Brake System™ involves the strategic placement of the gripping lugs to make the most out of the traction capacity of the outsole. This design is also meant for uneven or jagged surfaces, as well as upward and downward paths.

Midsole

Injection Molded EVA is the main midsole component of the La Sportiva Uragano GTX. Its purpose is to mitigate the impact forces during the landing phase and encourage a springy liftoff.

A thermoplastic polyurethane unit is placed in the heel section to stabilize the foot and provide additional impact protection. It also bolsters the integrity of the foam midsole, making it more robust.

Upper

Air Mesh is a soft and porous material that offers breathable support for the foot of the wearer. It has micro ventilation pores that allow air into the foot-chamber while also preventing debris infiltration.

The Gore-Tex® lining staves off the water completely. It makes the runner more confident when tackling extremely wet conditions.

The 4-Way Stretch Scree Guard Gaiter is an integrated sleeve that extends to the lower part of the leg. It’s made of a durable material that acts as a barrier against abrasive foliage, rocks, and irregular surfaces.

Responsible for adjusting the fit is the fast lacing system, which is comprised of round laces and fabric eyelets that work in conjunction with each other. There’s no need to do any of the customary tying; instead, tugging on these strands would tighten the coverage.

Pull tabs on the back and front of the gaiter help the runner when it comes to wearing and removing the La Sportiva Uragano GTX.
