Christopher B.wrote a review of La Sportiva Boulder X Approach Shoe - Men's on April 12, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
My Chacos handle 90 percent of my approaches here in Arizona, but I needed something to get me there on that 10 percent. These fit the bill. They get used more often than not taking the dog for a hike, and they are perfect for that as well. I have sensitive feet and these fit snug and nice, without being too soft. The tread is excellent, and the inner sock/liner is a nice touch. I sized them as if for normal boots originally, and found I had to go up a half-size to get the right fit, as they fit closer to a climbing shoe than a hiking boot. Recommended.
