With carefully chosen materials and a sock-like fit, the Men's La Sportiva VK Trail Running Shoe delivers low-volume, super grippy performance on short, steep trails. Designed for high altitude running (specifically straight up 1000 meters of high-angle terrain), this techy shoe weighs in at a mere 7 ounces, and uses a super lightweight rubber sole that focuses most of its grip at the forefoot for assistance climbing the steeps. The upper is snug-fitting and incorporates the footbed into its design for a sock-like fit and feel as you power your way to the top, with asymmetrical laces providing a precise 360 fit. A compressed EVA wedge at the back of the sole keeps the ounces down while enhancing your vertical boost. With rock protection and lightweight design, the only way left is up.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
