hiking shoe

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 11"

This shoe is way more a hiking shoe than a running shoe. The sole is heavy and very stiff. The toes are a little narrow and it is a half size long. There is no arch support but there is room to change out the insole. It seems well made and should live up to the great reviews as a hiking shoe.

Love these

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

They are well made and strong. Soles are Vibram. I am going to order a second pair just in case they get discontinued. Sizing. I take an 8.5 to a 9.0. I ordered a 40 they fit perfect. Great on the trails my ankles feel secure.

Perfect for All Terrain

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

Spent the last 2 weeks in these incredibly reliable, super lightweight, yet durable hikers. We encountered snow, mud, rain, and every type of terrain while hiking National Parks. Great looking, comfortable, and kept my feet dry. Could not be happier. Purchased for my Daughters as well and we are all thrilled with this shoe. Highly recommend.

Great Shoe!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 10"

These shoes are great. I found it runs pretty true to size for me. I like how comfortable it is right out of the box and there is plenty of room for your foot and toes for ascent and descent. I would highly recommend these, they also look very stylish which is a big plus too!

Oddly runs big

I returned this product before using it

i bought Euro 39 for women in both the La Sportiva Spire GTX and the Trail Ridge Low. Whereas the Trail Ridge Low in Euro 39 women fit perfectly, the Spire GTX was too big...I would say half size too big. Bushido II trail running shoe I wear women's 39.5. So, La Sportiva's sizing is all over the place for some reason, which makes relying on the sizing chart, whether here or on La Sportiva, impossible and perplexing.

Runs Big!

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 3"

NOTE: my review is based on just a few steps in the house, as this shoe runs big! (I'm normally a very true US Women's 9.5 / EU 41 (which is what I ordered) and there was way too much length and even some extra width to spare. By contrast, La Sportiva's TX4 fit me perfectly in a US Women's 9.5 / EU 41... while in La Sportiva's TX Guides, (a horrifically stiff shoe that I WON'T wear for that reason alone), I had NO ROOM to spare in an EU 41.5. At best though, I do NOT need to take this shoe outside to determine: NO 5 STARS, no matter how awesome those sweet lugs are on the loose footing, as there is a severe lack of protection. Sadly, Scarpa, La Sportiva, and MOST other companies can't make a shoe worth a you know what that has BOTH decent lugs AND superior protection. The lugs on these are incredible and no doubt will perform amazing in terms of traction on loose footing but the protection factor is FAR INFERIOR... obviously this may seem like a crazy protective shoe to those heading away from super light weight / mesh... but for those wanting to do off-trail (or even rugged ROCKY trails), WATCH OUT! Yes, while these ARE a step above the mesh crap, even the toe guard is inferior to shoes that use a rubber toe guard. Backs of the shoes are okay (and MOST TIMES are) but holy heck... the SIDES of these shoe SEVERELY lack protection. If you DO NOT need decent/deep lugs, then I recommend Scarpa, as they have a whole line up of shoes that are SUPERIOR (some even to my Camp 4's!) in terms of BOTH the protection AND the overall comfort/fit factor. In terms of design/fit aspects, there were some mild pressure points in an area that is fairly common (right over where one ties the laces)... BUT given that these were clearly too big, I'd think/hope that could be eliminated/greatly minimized if I decide to size down. Very decently fitting tongue/lacing system without pressure points elsewhere, so that was a HUGE plus; and very decent job in terms of a shoe that HAS deep lugs BUT WITHOUT a horrible 'high heel effect' (such as in the Salewa Moutain Trainers) where you may feel more prone to rolling an ankle... that said, (whether due to the deeper lugs OR a slightly stiffer shoe than some of my other top candidates or perhaps a bit of both), this shoe, in my opinion, has less "precision" (in terms of being able to better feel the contour of the ground underfoot, like say the footing (which have excellent precision): TX4 (La Sportiva), Camp 4's (Five Ten) or Salewa's Wildfire Edges (which would be an EPIC shoe if not for the horrific lacing system that caused crazy pressure points along the entire top of my foot on the top-inside). With the incredible lugs on this shoe and decent overall fit, I could *live with slightly less precision as long as it climbs/edge decently... *so long as my shoe repairmen could slap on a quality rubber toe guard + some rubber on the sides, that is! Hoping that the Garmont Dragontails will bridge the gap where this shoe falls short, as I'm nearly out of options.

Very heavy shoes

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I did a lot of research on hiking shoes before settling on La Sportiva. They got great ratings as a stable shoe for those with fallen arches or flat feet and did not require breaking in. I was able to find a coupon for $30 off, making these worth the price at ~$160, but I would not have paid full price. To begin, I appreciate the sturdy, rugged sole and expect that they will hold up for a long time to come, but they are SUPER heavy, stiff and clunky. The arch support is kind of a joke - I usually replace the insoles anyway. They do fit true to size and are nice and roomy in the forefoot. Those will fallen arches will appreciate that this is a hot spot area for bunions. Unfortunately, the heel is also super roomy, which isn't great for a hiking shoe and caused a blister. I wore them on a 7 mile mountain hike in 100-degree Arizona heat and can attest that they are breathable - but MAN, are they HEAVY!

Perfect for PNW

I've used it several times

Love wearing these hiking around the PNW, sturdy and comfortable. Sizing chart on here is weird I just went by my birkenstock size and they fit great with my wool socks.

Too stiff and uncomfortable.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I hate to leave an unfavorable review, but I found these shoes terribly stiff. They probably would have loosened up with use, but the shoe rode high on the inner ankle causing it to rub and become uncomfortable. I attempted to correct the problem by using arch supports inside the shoe, but that didn't work. I ended up returning them.

I've put it through the wringer

I can?t say enough good things about this shoe. I frequently hike with my toddler in my pack and these lightweight shoes give me the comfort and traction I need for extended use. They?re fantastic.
