Weight and volume are reduced to a minimum to ensure peak performance on the uphill. The upper is super snug fitting and features La Sportiva's exclusive Sock-Like™ technology. Using a single piece of knitted fabric with thermo adhesive stretch zones and stabilizers, the VK eliminates seams and fits like a sock.
The asymmetrical Ghost-Stream Lace System™ is a structural part of the upper, providing a 360° snug fit and closes at the sides with concealed laces.
The super lightweight rubber sole is present only on the front part of the shoe with rock-guard on the forefoot. An abrasion resistant, compressed EVA wedge at the rear of the shoe is lightweight and designed to enhance the vertical boost during the Vertical Races.
VK: zero compromise, sheer verticality.
