A number of La Sportiva Mountain Running® shoes use EVA injected midsoles which differ from the standard compression molded EVA midsoles for a high degree of cushioning and a better elasticity o fthe fabric.


These features assist “push off” during the propulsion phase while running, making these models ideal for use on offroad trails. Furthermore, EVA injected midsoles drastically reduce the“squash” effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to maintain the same characteristics and high performance for its entire duration.


Some La Sportiva models use standard compression molded EVA midsoles for the durability and reactivity on soft ground where the need for shock absorption is reduced.
