Carter Purviswrote a review of La Sportiva Kaptiva Trail Running Shoe - Men's on September 2, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
The Kaptiva strikes the perfect balance between weight, comfort, and protection. The sock like liner allows the shoes to slip on with ease and feel secure even when not laced tight. The rubber is very sticky, so you still get decent traction even on wet stone. The tread wears slightly quicker than the bushido, but that is the trade off for better grip. The shell of the shoe is very tough and holds up well to scrapes and abrasions. The laces are also the best I have ever used. I'm not sure what they did, but these laces have an incredible amount of friction. The shoes have never come un-laced on me, even with just a single knot. As for sizing, I purchased the exact same size as I wear in the bushido and the fit is perfect.
I use these shoes for everything right now. I wear them around town, on road and trail runs, and they have even become my go to approach shoe for bouldering. No matter what I'm doing, I know I can trust the Kaptiva to perform.
If you order these, I promise you won't be disappointed. I just ordered my second pair!
