Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Size Purchased: 46 and 46.5

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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Supportive, durable, comfortable. Just watch the sizing... Scarpa isn't kidding around when they note that they offer TWO half sizes. Technically, they offer two 1/3 sizes. So between each full size (US), you'll see, say 11 1/3 and 11 2/3. I typically wear a US 11.5. I tried the 45 which says its a 11.5 US, but it was really a 11 1/3 so I returned them and ordered the 45.5 (11 2/3). Of course, many will order their climbing and approach shoes a bit smaller than normal for peformance, so it's up to you. As always, try them on and walk around in the store wearing the socks, orthotics, etc that you would normally wear to see which fit you better.
