MacCrispwrote a review of La Sportiva Boulder X Approach Shoe - Men's on May 18, 2016
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
I own La Sportiva boots and climbing shoes and thus I thought I'd give the Boulder X's a try. Right out of the box you can tell that they are very well made. Stiff. Supportive. And thankfully NOT bright yellow :-). I believe they would likely be quite durable. Just like with my boots, I had to order a 46.5 even though I typically only wear an 11.5 US. La Sportiva's are known for running a bit small so make sure you at least consider 1/2 size larger than your normal, if not a full size like me. Obviously, for performance in climbing and scrambling, a smaller size might aid in edging and "feel". Sadly, I'm returning them because I just can't seem to get the right fit out of these. Still though, they are a sweet shoe.
