LA SPORTIVA <br />VK <br />Summer 2018

VK is the trail running shoe created specifically for Vertical Kilometer racing, developed in collaboration with the world champion in this discipline, Urban Zemmer. Weight and volume are reduced to a minimum to ensure the athletes peak performance on the climbs.

The uppers are super snug fitting and feature the exclusive Sock-Like™ technology: that allows to obtain a single piece of knitted fabric with differentiated stretch panels with thermo adhesive stretch zones and stabilizers: eliminates the seams and fits like a sock. The asymmetrical Ghost-Stream Lace System™ is a structural part of the uppers: it provides 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 and an abrasion resistant, compressed EVA wedge at the rear designed for maximum lightweight and to enhance the vertical boost during the Vertical Races. A rear spoiler in antiskid microfiber facilitates and speeds up wearing and taking off the shoe. VK, zero compromise, sheer verticality.
