    What's the holdup?

    With the La Sportiva Women's Primer Low GTX hiking shoes on your feet, you may just find yourself waiting around quite a bit for your group to catch up. Gore-Tex surround technology provides your feet with 360-degrees of breathability for unmatched comfort on the trail. Their full synthetic upper uses both Airmesh and Nano-Cell technology to promote the overall comfort of the shoes, so sweaty, moist socks will be a thing of the past. When you need some extra bite to get you to the top, the durable Vibram sole digs in to yield the traction you need to power up steep climbs.

    Hiking shoes

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got these as a gift for my mom and this is what she said. Just tried out my new hiking shoes and I couldn’t be happier! They were
    comfortable from my very first steps. The generous width and supportive
    construction made my hike that much more enjoyable. We hiked for only
    about 7 miles, but my feet felt just as good on the first mile as it did
    on the last. I didn’t experience any “break-in” period. I would
    definitely recommend these.If you have any questions hit me at 801-523-4075 or email me at

    41.5 = 9.5+ (accurate in the chart)

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: EU 41.5 (US 9.5+)

    Just as the size chart suggests, the 41.5 is equivalent to a 9.5+.

    There was no 41 in stock (equal to regular 9.5) when I purchased so I tried the 41.5 since my feet are a touch wide anyway.

    I would say the sizing chart for this size was spot on. They were comfortable straight out of the box, and I wondered if I needed to size down. It seems I could go either way, and either wear a slightly thicker sock, or simply allow my foot to spread naturally, and these would also allow for a little feet swelling after long miles.

    I haven't decided if I will keep these yet as I am looking at a few other trail running style options for hiking as well, but these seem like a solid option, and I always appreciate a vibram sole.

    Comfortable and waterproof and cute!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 37

    I spent a long time looking for a good hiking shoe that was more supportive than my running shoes but not as heavy as my leather hiking boots. It was surprisingly hard to find a hiking shoe that was waterproof and also not super unattractive.
    These fit the bill perfectly - a bit chunkier than the low-profile running shoes I've gotten used to but still not clunky. There's a good amount of padding in the footbed and the first time I took them out on the trail my feet felt amazing.
    When I ordered these on sale, the smallest size available was a 37, and I got a different Sportiva style in a 36 and 36.5. I'm normally a US 6/European 36 and both the 36 and 36.5 were way too small, so these run at least a size smaller for me. the 37 is perfect!

    Best shoe purchase ever made

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    As an avid hiking boot lover for years, I stepped out and tried this shoe as an alternative this spring. I absolutely fell in love! The single most comfortable shoe I have ever put on my feet. Great traction, lightweight, breathable, and fantastic support. No break in required! Definite win here folks!

    Out of the box comfort...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5 W Med

    Put these shoes on, they felt good and I was on my way out the door. They are lightweight on your feet and feel very cushioned on your sole. In second week of ownership I took a risk and wore them on an all day outing, tromping around NYC - dawn to body was tired but my feet felt great. The friend I was with liked them so much she tried them at a store too, and purchased them online later that evening. They get a shining star in my book.
