Have taken these on a few winter hikes in NH and am impressed with their abilities. They’re light, grip well, and hug your feet beautifully. I bought them thinking they’d be versatile for a few seasons of hiking and they definitely are (but not feasible for mountaineering conditions). I’m usually a size 9 and 42 fit great. Definitely recommend these kick ass booties.

Very functional, but durability issues

Terrific grip, durable, lightweight, and a good bargain on sale. Primarily used for hikes and scrambles, with some short backpacks. These are very good in mixed alpine terrain, off-trail, scree and scrambling. Durability is very poor. After about 100 miles, the fabric upper is separating from the rubber lower at the same place on the instep side of both boots. Warranty request submitted to La Sportiva.

We bought a pair of these for my husband for a week of hiking in the White Mountains in NH. Without braking in, they carried my man through over 10 miles of intensive hiking on the first day without a single rub. Lightweight, comfortable, with superior grip on the bare rock (I was sliding in some places in my Asolo boots while he was like a mountain goat, which is understandable since this boot has a bit of a approach shoe feel and design). He said he could complain about a lot of things during that hike, but he did not once think about his feet or shoes. Very nice upgrade to his 10+ year old heavy hiking boots. They are also very pretty in person, the backcountry photo does not do justice to the look of the boot.
