Justin Culpepperwrote a review of La Sportiva Boulder X Approach Shoe - Men's on November 20, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I have an older pair of these (exact same, different colors) that I have been wearing since 2012. These shoes are the antithesis of what I normally buy; they are heavy, stiff, and feel a bit bulky when you're wearing them. But I'll be damned if they haven't outlasted evey other pair of shoes I've owned and have become my favorite shoe to wear on a daily basis. It's also worth mentioning that I got them at a closeout sale for [I believe] $35 but they are a full-size too small for me because that's all the store had left. Because of that, I don't normally wear these on long hikes (10+ miles) because my toes, although perfectly matching the grooves they've formed inside, do start to hurt.
I recommend them if you want something totally bomber and dont mind a stiffer shoe. I also recommend getting them in the correct size.
