Jamie I.wrote a review of La Sportiva Bushido II Trail Running Shoe - Men's on May 3, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Good shoe but not my favorite. Ok for hiking but not great for running (for me). My favorite thing about them is, like all La Sportiva’s they have amazing traction and grip. I have pretty low volume feet but they don’t seem to hold my foot as well as the mutant or Akasha, which seems weird since the bushido’s are supposed to be lower volume, maybe it’s a more specific fit thing. For reference Salomon S-Lab shoes seem to fit me the best (sense rides are a little too wide for me). The old version of the bushido fit me a little better and felt more supportive/stable.
They run small but are consistent with the other LS trail shoes I’ve tried. I’m a 10.5 in most brands (Salomon, Nike, brooks, Hoka) and wear a 45 in La Sportiva which is supposed to be 11.5 I think (it’s only a half size difference or less in euro sizes though, Salomon says 10.5 is 44 2/3).
I recently had the chance to try on the La Sportiva Kaptiva and kind of wish I had gotten those instead. They fit my feet really well, very secure lockdown, like almost like high end Salomons.
