Now my favorite jogging sneakers!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
Runs small
Size Bought
41.5
Height

After putting these on and test driving them, I have to say I love these more than my APL running sneakers! They have the same flexible fit material which I love as they bend and flex to the shape of your foot but the part I fell in love with the most is the bottom sole. The traction sole really helps to protect my feet and feels comfortable as well! Overall very, very happy! Note - Runs small and I’m normally a size 9, sometimes 9.5 and I went with the 41.5 and they fit perfectly!

It’s hard to buy la sportiva in the US since there’s not many places that carry them. They run an entire size small. I am a size 10 so in runners I’m a 10.5. I ordered these in 43 which is equivalent to size 11 and they fit snug. That said, I love the grip and the way they hug my narrow foot perfectly. I like that they have laces unlike most of the salomons I’ve used and they seem to be wider. You do need to break these in a bit but after a couple Weeks they were even better. I ordered some others but this model is by far the best for our terrain

Best all-around trail shoe!

After testing for a year, this baby is it. Wore wear for Western States, one pair, all 100-miles, zero issues. Wore the gore-tex version at a VERY wet Way Too Cool 50k this past spring and it completely dominated. Fast, but also has great traction. Lightweight. Feels like a road shoe, but performs like a competent trail shoe.
