Neil R.wrote a review of La Sportiva Sandstone GTX-XCR Hiking Shoe - Men's on July 8, 2008
Slight pressure point on the area where the foot and big toe meet (possibly from the stitching). I think/hope this will dissipate once the shoes are better broken in. Otherwise, they feel like a low-top boot, and I love that. Very stable, great support. The sole looks to be good quality (Vibram); hopefully, it wears long and well. Seems to run a bit big, as I needed a 1/2 size smaller. Good for a narrow foot (like mine), and it fits even better with my old Superfeet Greens stuck in there. Should be a great shoe!
