La Sportiva Wildcat 2.0 GTX
- Fit: True to size
I've used this shoe more as a lightweight hiking shoe opposed to a running shoe. I'm on my 2nd pair, first pair last 3 years.
Pros: lightweight, breathable, GTX works great, moderately flexible, grip, comfortable for my wider toe base.
Cons: support (which is a trade-off for the lightweight and flexibility), cushioning, laces - they don't stay tight.
The sole has an amazing amount of grip and lasts a very respectable amount of time. Granted, most of my uses was done on softer surfaces. The sole really protects against rock as well, you're feet won't be bruised unlike some of the minimalist shoes. I've also used them in snow; my feet were cold, but they stayed dry. Overall, these shoes are really versatile. I wouldn't say they do everything outstandingly great, but they do everything well.
Have they fixed the problem with the heel...
Have they fixed the problem with the heel stitching coming apart quickly in this version?
They have put a large pull on the back edge of the problem area. Also, the problem seam appears to be a little higher than previous models. Those two things + loosening the laces a bit open up the entry much better.
