The updated model of La Sportiva Jackal II maintains all the best aspects of the original now with new eco-friendly upper materials, a new heel/tongue construction and enhanced breathability - all in a lighter weight design.
In the making of the La Sportiva Jackal II running shoe, every detail counts. From the upper to the sole, everything is designed to promote foot comfort over long distances: a comfortable, loose fit designed for ultra-marathons, a soft, wraparound comfort fit elastic tongue for maximum freedom of movement, and an inner gusset construction to protect against rocks or mud. The lacing has loops incorporated directly into the side panels of the upper: a solution that facilitates volume adjustment during long runs when the foot tends to swell. The Net-Mesh side panels promote ventilation and climatic comfort. The heart of Jackal, however, lies in the innovative EVA sole/intersole package with high energy return polyurethane cushioning pads Infinitoo ™ Technology . The front element increases cushioning, the rear insert helps stabilize the run. The midsole also includes a high-density EVA Rock-Shield insert for a more stable run and rock-guard effect. The sole is made of Frixion Red compound with differentiated Impact Brake System lugs and longitudinal FLEX grooves that help the sole bend along the bend lines.
