  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Its my perfect shoe! Light, durable, just the right amount of support and best toe protection EVER! I absolutely LOVE this shoe and am so very very disappointed that they are no longer being sold. None of the other Sportiva models comes close to this in my opinion! I've tried the C-Lites and the toe box is way to narrow compared to this! Please bring the Fireblades BACK!!!

I TOTALLY agree! I have been trying different models and I just wish I had ordered extra. Trying one more in the hopes this one is my new favorite.


Favorite new trail/canyoneering shoes -

    I wore these for the first time on a Canyoneering trip to Zion and fell in love with these shoes. Good stability. Fantastic traction on the slick wet/sandy rock. No hot spots or blisters after 5 long days in and our of water, sand, and with tough climbs. Better than amphibious shoes imo because they don't let sand or small debris in. And, better still - it's a great looking shoe! Bring on the complements. Sizing seems a little big - I wear an 8/8.5 and ordered a 39.5 (could have sized up 1/2 size to fit bulkier socks).

    My right foot measures size 5, left foot 5 1/2. Do these shoes run slightly large or small?

    What size La Sportiva do I need to order?


    Great hybrid road/trail shoes

      I've been a runner for 26 years now and these are great running shoes. They are great on pavement and good on trails with a heel that's a bit lower to the ground. I've run in Montrail Hurricaine Ridge for years now, and though I like the support those have for roots and rocks on trails, these are an improvement over those because they are super light and fit like a glove. The soles are a bit thinner than the Montrails, though, so I do feel rocks and roots through them.

      Definitely no rubbing, because the fit is comfy and great. Nice Job, La Sportiva.

      What size do i order for a women's shoe...

      What size do i order for a women's shoe in size 7 regular width and do you have it in stock?


      Good shoe

        I like the shape, more room by the toes but snug around the heal so it doesn't slide around. I've had no problems with rubbing. As it is a light weight shoe, there is little padding. Good for keeping feet cool, but tougher for long days of wearing them.


        Great approach shoes

          Great approach shoes. Sizing is a little big, but I run in them so they should be a bit bigger.


          super shoes!

            Great trail running shoes, not good for long distances on pavement since there isn't much cushion. Extremely light weight and like most Sportivas they have a wider toe box and a narrow heel to fit a woman's foot shape. To me these run a bit big, as did my last pair of La Sportivas but that just might be me.


            Light weight

              I bought these to replace my old sportivas I've used for two years hiking daily on moderate terrain. These are much lighter and very good for warmer climates, excellent traction on wet rocks and muddy slopes. Unlike my other pair, these are not waterproof but for the price, you can't beat these treads. Great looking, especially with black pants and they dry quickly when you need to remove mud from soles. Highly recommend!


              La Sportiva Fireblade Sizing

                I have not used these yet (they just arrived) but wanted to comment on the sizing - I read they ran small, so I ordered a half size larger than I wear. That said, they seem to run true to size (mine are about a half size too big) and are great for my wide feet. I cannot wait to get our and use them once the thaw begins.


                Get em!

                  So dope! These shoes are awesome! Super breathable and comfortable. They even look good.

                  I wear a womens 9.5 shoe, what does that...

                  I wear a womens 9.5 shoe, what does that convert to in euro sizing? like the sportivia running shoe?

                  Snooky, technically it is a size 41 but it seems most La Sportiva's run almost a half size small. I would order the 41.5 to make sure you have enough room.


                  AWESOME shoe

                    I have a very narrow heel so finding a shoe that fits is hard. I hike a ton but never jog because it always makes my joints hurt. I've been jogging pain free! These shoes are awesome and fit me true to size. Have been on a dirt road and blacktop - no trails yet. Not sure if they'll have the lateral support in the forefoot for clambering around in sagebrush. I'm ordering another pair to have when the first wears out.


                    Favorite Hiking Shoe

                      I first bought these for trail running but found I liked them best for hiking. Not enough cushion for me for trail running. But they're amazing for hiking. I've done several week long backpacking trips in them, used them as approach shoes for mountaineering, and for normal day or weekend hikes. Just bought my second pair. Here's a picture of my last pair before throwing them out after three years.

                      I run on a sand trail and are looking for a shoe that isn't mess on top. The sand gets in the shoe.

                      Jayne, you might want to look at a model with the tongue convered. If you do the majority of your running in sand it will eventually get into this shoe. Another option is a lightweight and short gaiter.


                      Awesome shoe, right out of the box!

                        This is my new favorite shoe. I refer to them as my Karl Meltzer shoes. Due to other reviews, I ordered 2 in my "normal" trail shoe sizes (men's 7.5/women's 9). Both usually read 40.5. But the men's 7.5 came in 40 eu, while the women's 9 came as a 40.5 eu. The larger size fit awesome. I wore them on the next 3 consecutive day's runs: an 8, a 5 and an 11 miler, all trail, all with loads of up & down hill. The shoe was awesome. Lighter but just as sturdy as my prior trail shoe (Vasque mindbender & Mercury). I'm ordering several more pair. I have a wider metatarsal/forefoot and a normal height arch & heel.


                        Such an amazing shoe!

                          Such an amazing shoe! I had to order a 1/2 size up. I wear a 9 1/2, 42 fit perfect. The support and tread is GREAT and I can't wait to continue tearing these shoes up this season!
