Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Jakal is the bomb. I have been running in La Sportiva since the Fireblade. I loved the crosslite, Ultra Raptor ( although heavy) and many others like the Mutant , Kaptiva , Akasha etc. before the Jakal came out , I would have said the Akasha was the best for a 100 miler. The Jakal is a slightly beefed up Kaptiva . Coming from someone who has prchased 30 La Sportiva shoes ( surely more) in the last 5 years, trust me if you are a La Sportiva fan, this goes in the LS hall of game nestled somewhere in the Dolomites . I will be running or at least attempting 3 100 milers in them this year staring with Zion next month. Love the shoe .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer I am a seasoned runner of 35 years who is always searching for the perfect trail running shoe. I think I found it with the Jackal. This shoe is engineered and built better than any shoe I have run in. It excels on rough terrain and cruises on mild terrain. I find myself running faster over rough terrain because of the confidence I have in the Jackal. I have run in shoes that fall apart at 100 miles. This shoe is definitly built to last. The more miles I run in this shoe the more comfortable it gets. This was my first shoe from La Sportiva and won't be my last. I did have to size up one full size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking on Clouds Hi all, more of a climber than runner, but this shoe runs slightly wide for the brand, and has superb cushion!! I also suggest about 1/2 size up compared to a normal La Sportiva size, if running for extended distances. It approaches nicely for moderate crag hikes, and has great traction on everything but pure rock slabs/domes. The upper materials *do break in slightly,* and the foam underfoot molds nicely to the contours of a person's foot - eliciting a custom feeling sole. TBH, I mostly use this as a city shoe/mild hiker - I like the muted colors and cushion, and this way I'm not wasting sticky rubber from my approach TX2's :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cushioned and Protective and Fun! I run a lot of technical trails with lots of sharp rocks and bulbous routes. This is the best foot protection La Sportiva has offered in a light trail running shoe ever! I found myself aiming for the sharpest objects I could find. The dual material midsole really protects the foot and has A LOT of cushion without any of the instability that comes from other shoes that it compares with. The fit is really wide and high volume for a Sportiva product which is a welcome change. This is one of those shoes you put on and you just want to keep running and running and running. The fit runs a bit small so size up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blisters walking the dog Just got these a few days ago. Have never experienced blisters in a running shoe. Figured I’d break them in a little walking the dog on a 3 mile loop around the neighborhood. What a mistake. By the time I got back I had blisters on both heels. As other reviewers note right at the Achilles. Decided to try again tonight. This time had to take them off and walk home barefoot. Blisters on blisters. Not sweet Sportiva. I am ALWAYS a 45 in Sportiva shoes. These definitely run small. Feet touch the front of the shoe just on the flat and going downhill is terrible. Would try to size up but the rest of the fit doesn’t feel like it would work in a bigger size and the heel blister situation is a total non starter. Glad I didn’t actually try going off road in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIALED FIT WITH FLUFFY PILLOW CUSHION I've been running in the Jackal for about a month now (100ish miles logged). Like all La Sportiva's, the quality/durability is there! Hardly any wear on the outsole and upper is holding together very well. The fit is solid. No movement, even when bombing downhills. Which I like compared with max cushion shoes from other brands. Sloppy toe box room no Bueno! This is a wider toe box for La Sportiva, but I still wear 44.5 across the board in almost all mountain running footwear (I have a B/C width foot). I'll say I did wear these around my house for two days to allow a proper beak in period. Once broken in they feel amazing! I've tested this shoe on flat gravel roads and very techincal rocky/rooty terrain. This is the go to shoe for long trail days of training, race day ultra, recovery days, or for someone who likes more cushion under their feet.. Great product that I will continue to use for my long loved trail days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On my 2nd pair, new favorite [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These shoes put some fun back in my run after switching from Bushido to Akasha a few years ago because my almost-50 year old back was begging for more cushioning. Akashas got the job done, but were bulky and clunky for my usual 6-8 mile runs. Enter the Jackal: light, springy, snug fitting, and cushioned. Uppers, heel cup/collar and sole are all way more durable than previous La Sportiva runners and still have some life left after ~450 miles. Could be my perfect shoe. Note: my foot is wide and had to size up a full size instead of the usual half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cushioned but nimble I have run over 200 miles in the Jackal. There was little to no break-in period required and it felt great right out of the box. The Jackal has proven to be highly durable as one would expect from Sportiva; after many miles on a variety of terrain there is little wear on the outsole or the upper. I have used them on smooth, buffed trails and rugged, rooty, and rocky terrain, all with good success and enjoyment. Unlike some other cushioned shoes, the Jackal provides the plush cushioning but not at the expense of being nimble and light on technical terrain. I am a size 42.5 in all Sportiva mountain running footwear and 42.5 worked for me as well in the Jackal. I look forward to riding the Jackal on long summer days in the mountains!
