I love this shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Considering the abuse I put these shoes through, they hold up marvelously. I do a lot of of off-trail hiking in the desert and the sharp limestone that I come across on some desert peaks takes a toll on the shoes I wear. Shoes I've used in the past seem to wear out on the sides well before the tread is worn. These FC ECO 2.0 GTX shoes have held up quite well - the current pair I have worn to the point of wearing the soles almost smooth. They have always provided great grip/traction and been very comfortable. This has been the case on all types of terrain. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide sturdier shoelaces. The ones that come with the shoes don't last well at all. The replacement laces I purchased at R.E.I. hold up much better/longer.

Great All-Around Shoe!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I searched for a pretty long time to find the perfect pair of all-around hiking, approach, work, comfort shoes. I had five ten guide tennies, some Zamberlan shoes, Merrells, and none of them seemed to match up to the FC Eco shoes. La sportiva uses some premium quality Vibram rubber, Gortex lining, and supportive construction to make a shoe that can tackle pretty much anything. I have done ten day back packing trips with these babies, long single day approaches, some construction work, and even a little mountain biking. My go to shoe. I will definitely be buying another pair when my current ones blow out. If your into more ankle support, I imagine that the FC eco boot is an equally great option!

Very comfortable shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for a 2 day hike, and started out wearing them just to break them in. I have now made these my "go-to" shoes. They are very comfortable, and look pretty casual. My feet felt great after the 2 day hike, and they barely looked like they had been worn.

Light weight robust shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I was relatively new to hiking in the desert 2 months ago when it was well over 100 degrees everyday here in AZ. I looked through many options for a shoe that would be light weight while keeping my feet dry and free of bruising. This shoe fit the bill, and after two months of non-stop abuse in the mountains their still going strong.

Great fit and comfort

I have narrow heels and trouble finding hiking shoes which secure the heels. These are the best. Also, light and comfortable. Wore them on overnight with full pack plus a daypack peak of Mt. Wilson (LA area). After the hike, no pain or tiredness in the foot, either going up or down. Not only that, since I use gaiters, I didn't even notice that one side laces had come loose. Now that's a good fit to be able to hike up without any slippage.

I purchased these shoes from backcounty over a year ago in size 13. I imagine they are closing out this item due to the new 3.0 being for sale.

Us guys with larger feet would like to buy La Sportiva shoes too. I ware size 13 La Sportiva. La Sportiva FC ECO 2.0 GTX is made in size 13 but you are only offering 12.5. Why not offer size 13?

Anyone use these for backpacking?

Best Answer Responded on

I have not used these particular Sportivas for backpacking but I have used many of their light hikers and trail runners for backpacking and found that the tread designs and rubber compounds give me a lot of support and confidence even with heavier loads. The place where you may find them lacking is if you are backpacking over a lot of sharp talus or rocky terrain where there are sharp rocks and roots because you will start to feel those poking the bottom of your feet due to the minimal amount of material in the shoe. Overall I would say that depending on how much weight you carrying and where, you'll find them comfortable and durable enough for your needs.

Responded on

I've used these while carrying a large pack full of heavy climbing gear. They worked well on snow, talus and everything else. The sole is actually fairly thick and the lug pattern gives you an amazing amount of stability and control.

Better than Merrells.

Fit well, flex well, and look good doing both. GoreTex is a nice touch as well. These shoes also help you get off the beaten path of the typical low toppers you see everywhere.

Best

best low top hiking shoes ever. they are strong and sturdy, but they do not take much time to break in, get a half size bigger than you are used to.

Just didn't fit

The shoes seem sturdy enough, and nicely made. I didn't test the waterproof abilities because the fit was just off. I have narrow, low-volume feet, and while Sportivas usually fit me well, these did not work. hese were a recommendation by the Backcountry chat guy; ordinarily a good bet, but not these. Too bad..

Awesome

I go through shoes very fast and needed something I can wear everyday and still go hiking in. I've had these for a 4 months now and they have yet to show any wear on the treads. They are quite an aggressive tread pattern and have yet to let me down. Great buy

Good sturdy shoe

These shoes are a little wider than La Sportiva's typical footwear and fit my foot great. Very comfortable and feel very durable. The sole is very sturdy and I don't think it will wear down like other trail shoes I have had in the past. My only complaint is that the gore-tex lining in the toe box area does not stay adhered to the shoe interior construction and fells more like an internal sock resting on your feet rather than part of the shoe construction. I would have given this shoe 5 stars if the lining would stay adhered to the shoe construction.

Multi-Purpose

The shoes are perfect for trail walking, path or everyday use. The Gore-Tex insert has kept my feet dry and comfortable. The shoes breathe really well and help keep my feet cool on those hot days. Vibram soles grip most surfaces well.

I have pounded trails for over a year in these shoes and they have held up very well.

Excellent Versatile Outdoor Shoe

Well designed very comfortable all weather shoe good in wet conditions. It is the type of shoe that you can wear as an urban walker or trekking along a trail. The grippy sole flexes well which is easy on your feet at the end of the day. I wear size 11 in street shoes and found the 45.5 eur size right for me.

I know that a US size 11.5 is roughly a size 45 but anybody know if La Sportiva runs bigger or smaller than that. Almost every pair of shoes I own are 11.5 but almost all say something different in Euro sizes from 44-46. My Vasque boots are 11.5 if that helps figure out what that is equivalent to in La Sportiva. Thanks.

Responded on

I don't know how La Sportiva's shoes compare to their boots, but I wear a 44.5 in their Trango Alp boot, while I wear a 44 in Kayland, and Five Ten.

Responded on

I wear 11.5 in almost all of my shoes and in the La Sportiva's I wear a 44.5 in the trekking style shoes and a 45 in the mountaineering boots.

Responded on

Write your answer here...I own this shoe in the higher boot format. 44.5 equals a size 11 US.

Responded on

I first bought the La Sportiva brand because they offer a size 12.5 - U.S. (46.5) that most other footwear manufacturers don't offer. I've never been disappointed with the fit and over the years I've purchased at least half a dozen pairs La Sportiva shoes and/or boots including the FC Eco 2.0 GTX
