Pleasantly Surprised

I was going to purchase The Ultra Raptor II GTX, but it was never available in my size. I was looking at these as a backup and finally my size became available in these Wildcats. I was looking for a good Gortex trail runner to keep my feet dry. These felt great right out of the box. Ten minutes into my run they felt like butter on my feet. Stable, well cushioned, good traction, responsive and kept my feet nice and dry. They pretty much check all the boxes. I only do shorter runs, 3-6 miles, but I do go out almost everyday and I've only had them for a couple weeks, so we'll see how durable they are. Some people have complained about the traction, but I've had them on wet roots and rocks without any issues. The only negative I can think of is availability, but that has nothing to do with the shoes. Everything has supply chain issues right now, so I can't really fault La Sportiva for that. Bottom line is, these are great shoes.

Really Like these Shoes, But...

Over the past years I have bought at least ten pairs of this shoe. When new they are great performers. The soles last a long time, they have great support, are actually waterproof, and are stiff enough to give great edging in off trail side-hill scrambling. They are not perfect however, and they consistently have had 3 problems. 1. For waterproof shoes they do not grip well at all on wet rocks or wood. 2. Invariably, well before the shoes show any wear anywhere else, the linings of the heels get worn through. 3. Several pairs have had lace loops break through and are irreparable, which is odd because the simple woven nylon lace loops on my several pairs of non GTX version never wear out here. But in the end I like these shoes well enough to keep buying them. Though I do wish these problem areas would be fixed.

My favorite light hiking shoe

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 1"

This show is probably mis-cast as a trail-runner, but is absolutely fantastic as a light hiker. Insole has good structure to it to keep you steady on uneven ground, but also has great cushion/bounce. The outsole is grippy and does well on gravely downhills. I have read it?s slippery on wet smooth surfaces like concrete, but I live in a dry climate and only use it on trails. The waterproofing is excellent and keeps me totally dry on stream crossings (though it?s got a low ankle so watch your depth). PS size up

Problem with shoe

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 1"

I have had two pairs of these home and while they are super comfortable they have a major issue. Both pairs have had a loud clicking noise as you walk, almost like something is not glued correctly in the soles. The first pair was only the right shoe, the second pair were both shoes. So loud that even people walking with you can hear it.

Awesome Shoes

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

First few times wearing were pretty uncomfortable but I could tell the shoes just needed broken in. Once they were broken in they became extremely comfortable and I now love these shoes. I trail run in wetter conditions and also use these shoes for hiking when I will be going through a wet zone and want something light and waterproof. The waterproofing works well so far. Worn shoes about ten times and for about 30 miles or so total. Normally wear EU size 42.5 and I chose that and they fit snug with a little room in the toe box for spreading out toes for stress relief during wear.

Outsole does not last.

I have a had a few pairs of the GTX and non GTX Wildcats. They are super comfortable out of the box, the GTX naturally takes a little more time to soften up. They are such a comfortable shoe but the outsoles wear down so quickly (super soft). I love everything about these shoes except that the outsoles are done when the rest of the shoe barely has miles on them.

comfy show that's like walking on ice

I actually have both the GTX and non-GTX version of this show. I bought the non-GTX version first for a hike through Scotland that was a bit unwise. But the shoe was comfortable. So I bought the GTX version for a recent section hike of the PCT in Washington. I knew that the soles were slick, but they turned out to be dangerously so. I'm fairly use to the slipperiness of rocks in streams. Still, I was pretty shocked at how slick these shoes were while trying to balance on a rock during a recent stream crossing. I made it across to a large, flat rock, turned slightly and it was like I was standing on ice. My feet went out from under me, landed in freezing cold water, soaking my lower body, lost a trekking pole and very easily could have broken a wrist or something. If you ONLY, ONLY, ONLY plan on hiking or running in dry environments, I guess this shoe would be good for you. I've seriously almost slipped in city when it was raining. The soles are THAT BAD. Which is too bad. I really want to like this show.

Used for gravel runs and hiking

No complaints. Owned my Wildcats for 2 years now and only an occasional runner. I used them mostly for hiking and they are fantastic. I’m about to order my second set; it’s time for a fresh pair.

Great shoe

I purchased these shoes about a year ago and have put them through all kinds of different terrain and soggy conditions. The shoe at first did take a little getting used to because of how snug they fit my feet. I have not had and traction issues as of yet or complaints. 100% pleased with them.
