Do these run true to size?

Responded on

From my experience with La Sportiva, yes. Great trail runner by the way. Also, if you order and it does'nt fit...just exchange them. Backcountry is great about that.

I went my usual size (i.e., same as on the Crosslite 2.0). After ditching the removable insoles (another 1.1 ounces of saved weight, per pair), the tight was still very snug, but since the uppers are almost more like socks (which also probably eliminates the chance of blisters), I think that’s the best kind of fit for these shoes.

No, they definitely don't. I don't know why Sterling Watson's response was marked as a "best answer." You need to go at least 1/2 a size to one full size up on these. 1/2 size up works fine for less technical running but steep descents will require a full size up.

Definitely not true to size. I went through 2 pairs before I found the right size. I wear a 9 street shoe and 10 in most running shoes. Ordered these in a 42.5 (roughly 9.5 equivalent as I wanted a snug fit) and had to jump to a 43.5 for them to even be manageable. I wish I had a 44 or 44.5 even though now that I have put some miles on them.

Nope. Mine are a 47.5 and I'm normally a 46.5/47. Luckily I had the Quantum's already so I knew to upsize. I'd say they're supposed to be tight but there was no way I was fitting in a 47 in these.
