    Crossover and back.

    The new La Sportiva Men's Crossover 2.0 GTX Running Shoe really takes the guesswork out of your choice of footwear in the morning. An airmesh and microfiber upper helps to maintain breathability, while still retaining the durability you need from a trail runner. A Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining ensures that your feet stay comfortable all day, without getting all wet and clammy along the way. The Frixion AT rubber sole gives excellent traction in anything from snow, to mud, and everything in between. As if all this wasn't enough, La Sportiva turned these beasts into the ultimate winter-warriors by attaching a water-repellent gaiter, to ensure that nothing gets at your foot without your permission.

    Fully capable trail runner!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 45
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I bought these for road and trail running in snowy conditions here in SW CO at 7200ft. So far these have performed well. I ordered a size up since La Sportivas have always run small for me. These shoes keep out the muck and are very comfortable.

    Good Shoe for Winter

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 47
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    This is a great shoe for either hiking or running in winter. I have only used it a few times, but hope to get more use this winter.

    Running + Mountaineering Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 44.5
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I use this shoe for fast and light attacks in the Alpine, primarily the North Cascades of WA. I love this shoe because it is decently comfortable while running trail approaches, but then can switch to great grip and water resistance on snow and glaciers. I have universal strap crampons, so they work decently well with crampons. They're not meant for ice climbing, but I did end up booting down 65 degrees snow in the Enchantments with these bad boys one time! Grip on rock is also pretty solid, although the big treads can feel a little awkward.

    Tread is excellent, so running across mild (less than 25 degrees) snowslopes is a breeze. Water resistant with the integrated gaiter, not waterproof totally. but you don't need gaiters with these. Warmth is moderate, but still not too hot for summer use.

    If you want to be able to transition seamlessly from fast trail approaches to high scrambling and snow, these are your shoes. I've been able to slam 20+ mile 10k gain day climbs with these shoes now because I can jog the approaches and still perform in technical terrain. One of the best purchases I've ever made. They fill the gap between running shoes and mountaineering boots perfectly.

    Incredible for snowy conditions

    I wear a 13(47) in all La Sportiva shoes, and these were no different. The Crossover has the same midsole and outsole design as the LS Mutant. The only difference being that the Crossover outsole is made of Frixion Blue whereas the Mutant is Frixion Green. Green is a little more sticky and soft, but the Blue is perfect for cold snowy conditions. The widely spaced lug design sheds snow with ease, and I never had any trouble with balling around the lugs. These shoes are compatible with the La Sportiva ice screws, but I didn't add them to mine. I wore microspikes, which fit and felt fine on the Crossover. I wore these on snow, ice, and slush, and almost never had any trouble with footing.

    The upper on the Crossover 2.0 is incredible. It does a great job of keeping the foot free from snow and debris, while maintaining breathability. These are definitely not insulated or warm, which is something I like. The only time my feet felt wet was after long days in deeper snow with my microspikes on. I think it might be from snow balling on the top of my foot alongside the zipper. I think it's also due to the fact that the GTX doesn't line with the entire outershell. Still, for a lightweight and comfortable trail runner/hiker, these are tough to beat.

    Incredible for snowy conditions

    thanks for the detailed description and photos - really helps! re: sizing, I wear a 45.5 in the Akasha but 45 in the Mutant. you mentioned being comparable to the Mutant so thinking 45 in the Crossover... or account for thicker winter socks and size up a half size? looks like you've put a lotta miles on them so I'd appreciate your .02 and TIA

    Love/hate

      20+ miles and 20+ hrs in the high Wasatch in these in the week since getting them. Sole rubber and tread pattern provide solid grip on wet/loose/steep ground. Fit is narrow in the forefoot, which is uncomfortable. Waterproofness is debatable; okay for quick splashes thru streams and post-holing in snow, but doesn't hold up to sustained exposure, e.g. Standing in water while refilling a water bottle.

      Love these babies!!

      These shoes are THE bomb! I have limited my winter trail running in the past due to not having a good pair of shoes that would deal with the snow. I've had these a week now with two long runs (10 miles each) in them so far. I'll push them on a tough 14 mile trail tomorrow. I couldn't be more pleased with them. With temps at 10 degrees and 4 inches of snow on the trail I just put on a pair of medium thick wool socks and went for it. I didn't have to worry at all about my feet getting cold or wet or slipping around with these shoes whether on a packed trail or loose snow. The tread is grippy, the gaiter keeps the snow out and they breathe well. I wear a 8.5 street shoe size, but I get a 43 (US 10) in La Sportiva's trail shoes. I've had several of their models and find that their sizes run small and narrow plus I like a little toe room to protect from rocks and downhills better plus my feet expand a little too by the end of a long run. Although the price is a little high I think that they're a good investment and will keep me and my feet happy for a long time based the quality of these and other shoes I've worn from La Sportiva.

      Amazing shoe!

      Great for winter running/hiking. I have been wearing these every time it snows. My feet have never been wet, and they are VERY warm. Combined with a pair of wool socks, they are warmer than my Sorel boots. They also breathe extremely well and have excellent traction in the snow. I can not be more pleased with a pair of running shoes.

      Is sizing consistent across all La Sportiva running shoes? I have a 45.5 (12) in the Akasha, full size bigger than what I wear in other brands. Wanting to purchase the Crossover but can't find in stores to try on first. Thanks

      Hey, I cannot speak for the Crossover specifically (its on my list of shoes to get), as for the 5 other pairs of running shoes from la sportiva the sizing is consistent.

      I have (had) the Wildcat, Anakonda, Quantum, Electron and Helios. All 43.5.

      The sizing even goes on to mountain boots, I wear the Spantik and Karakoram in 43.5 also.

      Cheers
