Why We Like The Karacal Trail Running Shoe

When we're deep into our ultra training plan, we lace into the Karacal to give our feet a touch of luxury in their journey. The high-volume fit accommodates that inevitable distance swell, while the plush foam and full-length rock guard soften our landings.


  • Cushy shoe for going the distance on technical trails
  • Seamless mesh upper delivers breathability, flexibility, and comfort
  • Wider fit gives room for your foot to swell on those long runs
  • 7mm drop encourages a natural gait without over-fatiguing the calves
  • Lightweight foam gives an ultra-plush ride
  • Integrated rock guard protects against bruising
  • Grippy, hardwearing sole with biting lugs gives reliable traction
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Excellent, strong outer sole

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I bruised my foot on a rock with my last pair of trail shoes so I purchase this pair with hopes of more protection and they really are great on rocks and roots. On the downside they are just a bit narrow for my foot and the elastic straps in the midsole doesn't help. I have put about 40 miles on them and the narrowness and strap haven't caused issues so may be OK and I just need to get used to this style.

It’s name is LA SPORTIVA

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I’ve only worn them 3 times so far. I only use these if I’m hiking in dirt. Most times I’m walking in town on asphalt. Would wear them more but it’s turkey season again and I don’t want to get shot. At the end of the day they’re La Sportivas, so they’re going to be awesome!

Runs small is understatement

I returned this product before using it

Sized up .5 size and was still not enough. Recommend full size. And its narrow, which I like as I have narrow heels... if only the length was even close.

Too Small

Size Bought:
42.5 EU
5' 10"

I ordered a half size up and needed a wide shoe. Description says the shoe has a wide toe box. The shoe was too short and too narrow. Don't believe the writeups - if you need a wide, only buy shoes listed as EE. I feel like Backcountry wasted my time and my return shipping money - disappointed. I plan to stick with their competitor in the future which has great return policy.
