Felt good at first

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'
    Weight: 180 lbs

There was very little break in time..boot fit well and felt good during my first time out in them. Traction was good. After a few uses, hard bumps began to develop in the footbed..was actually coming up from the sole. Made for very uncomfortable footwear and caused soreness in my back after using them while the bumps were in. Unfortunately, the return process seems to have changed and I could not get any help with replacing them. Stopped wearing them after 2 months. Sucks to save money for some new boots then have the rug pulled out from under you. Wouldn't recommend them to anyone who plans to actually use them as hiking boots. Unless it is for one hike.


Comfy but not hardwearing

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

They are great to wear right out of the box, and they stay functional for a decent period of time, but they look scruffy quite fast. Good enough that I bought a second pair, but the rubber toe cap peels after a few trips, and the finish on the leather means they looks well-used very fast and aren't really wearable around town after a few walks. I should say I go off-track a fair bit.


women or men?

    I want to buy this model and the men's is cheaper, is there any difference really. I don't know if I should buy mens you know save 10 bucks


    Great fit

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I wore these out of the box on a 17 mile hike in all mixed conditions. .. fantastic fit and feel. Best of all no blisters!

    Great fit

    sweet boots

    the vibram sole looks great. not too beefy but also not puny either


    Love these boots

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    Bought these boots a week ago and have worn them everyday. I love them. whether in the mountains or in the city they are incredibly comfortable, light and water proof. They provide enough flexibility throughout the boot to wear everyday like I have been. A great boot!

    i have worn them on some long hikes, and i continue to wear every day. super comfortable everywhere!!


    great first impressions

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I have had a blister problem in my last two pairs of boot. I have narrow feet in a 11.5. these boots seem to be a very great fit like a hiking shoe should... theyre not too tough feeling but seem to be a sturdy hiker. quality seems to be good- ive never had La sportive shoes or boots before.


    Loved them...just a tad narrow

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:True to size

    I ordered these boots in a 46.5 (12.5 US) because I would normally wear a 12 in regular shoes and a 13 in boots. They appeared to be really well made and looked sweet too. They fit true to size, but were a little narrow in the mid foot. The toe box and heel fit very nicely. However, I have a slightly wide foot, and after wearing them inside for a little bit, they made my mid foot ache. I returned them, but if you have a normal to narrow foot then you will love these!

    I have narrow feet.. do you?

    Just ordered these because I have read they run narrow. Any in put on the toe box considering??

    these seem to fit ok so far. just tried them on and the toe box is big enough for my large toes.. the uppers, I have to lace tight to get the fit right. boots seem to be very comfortable


    Good boot for the price

      Nice boots! Excellent for me and my narrowish feet! They held up well after much casual as well as actual trail use. I wore them alone in warm seasons as well as with crampons during winter time. They also kept my feet warm and dry when paired with another favorite backcountry product, Darn Tough socks.


      Chinese Version < Indonesia Version

        When these debut years ago, I bought a pair at Paragon Sports in NYC. Wore them literally every day with exceptions here and there. Hiked Appalachian, Rocky Mountain National Park, Extensive S. Utah. Great boots for a narrow foot, eyelits are very durable (allow for a runner's knot to boot) I beat the shit out of these boots and they lasted me just under 2 years. They are easy to clean, flex well, have a good brake and good overall padding on the tongue/ankles/heel. However, if your heavy I would assume the ball area of the shoe might be a weak point. Orthotics fit well. These were manufactured in Indonesia. The current ones selling at are made in China (at least in the size I bought). There is a difference; padding on the tongue is less generous, shoe in general feels looser, little build quality differences that are noticeable when you go from one to the other. Unfortunate. Typical manufacturing cost dilemma. The shoe is not what it once was. But, it is still a very well made shoe. Worth 175.., probably not if they continue making it over in China... Hint, hint LA SPORTIVA.

        Where are the American made sport shoes??



          I walked the Inka Trail with these boots and found them to be generally comfortable with minimum break-in. Two things however: one, the midsole needs to be replaced as it is too thin in the forefoot area. It felt like nothing and I replaced them when I got back. Two, it is easy to over tighten and experience pain on the crown of the foot. I solved this with a modified lace track.


          Wicked Boots

            These boots are awesome. Very waterproof, super light, ultra comfy, and great flex.


            Great Boot?s

              Super light and comfortable boots, its been raining like crazy by these days in south america and these boot´s have been the perfect choice to wear, they have keep my feet dry in all moments.

              the boots are very light and the flex system makes them super comfortable to wear.

              I wore them straight out of the box on a looong day. totally agree with you
