A waterproof shoe with integrated gaiter ideal for winter running. The perfect choice for off-road, muddy, wet, snowy and icy trails, created for trail runners that require a product for winter training and racing.

The sticky sole offers excellent grip on slippery surfaces and scree or ice thanks to the deep lugs and is compatible with AT-Grip Spikes. The Sock-Shield Gaiter™ protects against stones and mud and the Quick-Lace system with lace pockets makes lacing fast and easy. The lacing system is integrated with the uppers: this solution allows for the regulation of volumes and fit to provide more precise and stable support on traverse routes. The seamless construction and the super flex membrane in waterproof, breathable Gore Tex make Uragano the perfect winter running shoe for off road-runners / winter trail running.

Centurion Review: The Uragano is built for the roughest British and international trail running that there is, without moving up into a boot. With the Gore Tex upper, the shoe is waterproof, keeping the worst of wet, muddy and boggy terrain out. The sock-shield gaiter is where it adds to the features La Sportiva Tempesta, keeping debris out and providing more warmth in the process. The lug is deep for mud and wet grass, but the sole sticky, to give hold on rock. This shoe would be most appropriate to those taking on anything in the UK mountains year round and winter trail events such as Arc of Attrition and the Spine but also shorter lighter trails with rougher sections too.

    FURTHER DETAIL

    MEMlex MIDSOLE: The midsole of the Uragano GORE-TEX Trail Running Shoes uses MEMlex, an injected EVA compound that provides unmatched comfort and durability. Injected Moulded EVA midsoles differ from the standard compression moulded EVA midsoles for a high degree of cushioning and better elasticity. These features assist the propulsion phase of the gait cycle, making these shoe ideal for use on offroad trails. Furthermore, EVA injected midsoles drastically reduce the squash effect of the EVA over time, allowing the compound to maintain the same characteristics and a high performance for its entire duration. Completing the midsole is an exclusive Ortholite Mountain Running Ergonomic insole system. This 4mm thick insole is performance-oriented, bringing an optimal compromise between comfort and reactivity. This insole offers outstanding breathability and moisture management due to its unique open cell structure, keeping your feet cool and fresh at all times. The footbed offers long-term cushioning and retains over 95% of its thickness over time and won't flatten out for complete comfort even after you rack up the miles.

    Outsole: Developed using FriXion XT technology, the Uragano GORE-TEX Trail Running Shoes provides outstanding grip on all terrain. Ensuring outstanding durability; it is a soft, long-lasting compound with good grip levels. This type of sole is ideal for running off-road, but can also be used on-roads and on-the-track. The rubber outsole perfectly balances grip, durability and shock absorption to deliver comfort, stability and support while you clock up the miles. The stable base will give you a good platform to help prevent the occurrence of injuries on unpredictable terrain. The outsole also features an innovative Impact Brake System, which absorbs negative ground impact and helps traction. It also offers the option of fitting hobnails for use on snowy and icy terrain. The Uragano is also compatible with AT grip spikes which provide added traction, they can also be removed and stored when not in use.
