Scott B.wrote a review of La Sportiva Sandstone GTX-XCR Hiking Shoe - Men's on October 7, 2010
Seems to be an okay boot, but it is not for me.
It runs a bit narrow (which I like), but the fit was odd, especially over the arch. Plus I did not care for the thin laces.
It wanted a tough shoe, but this is instead a short boot. I would not want to run in these or wear them daily.
I am going to try the Vasque Mantra instead, or maybe the La Sportiva Raptor.
