Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

The amount of padding on the posterior heel near the achilles insertion is about as much as 1 ply toilet paper. Horrible blisters resulted when hiking uphill. Not sure what sportiva was thinking with that. I had to put some sticky felt padding in there to prevent blisters. Also extremely narrow. If you have a wide foot these are not shoes for you. I went a whole size up from my regular la sportiva size in order to try to get some extra width in the toebox but I still found my toes going numb on the uphill. Great technical shoe however if it fits your foot. Very responsive and sticky. I normally wear a 42 in sportiva wildcats and the former awesome fireblades, and even a 43 gave me no relief. I was hoping these would be similar to those shoes for Wasatch peakbagging, talus fields, climbing approaches, and technical singletrack, but I ended up returning them due to the issues mentioned. Guess my foot just wasn't made for these babies.
