Chris Taylorwrote a review of La Sportiva Fireblade Trail Running Shoe - Men's on August 3, 2009
La Sportiva makes great stuff. The materials in these shoes are nice. The shoe is well constructed, and will last mile after mile. The toe box has a nice "run free" feel to it and the heel cup is stable. The shoe is low to the ground and has a clear feeling of the trail as you run. I took this shoe on a very rocky 13 miler and my feet (bottoms) were getting hot the last 2 miles. I took them out again the next day on a trail a bit less rocky and I could feel the soreness from the day before. I am 6'3" and 175 lbs. As a bigger runner they were not great for me but I could see them working quite well for all the skinny fast boys who beat me to the finish line. I still like the Crosslites and Wildcats more.
