Steven G.wrote a review of La Sportiva Boulder X Mid GTX Approach Shoe - Men's on May 9, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
These boots fit like a glove. That is great for climbing easyish stuff, but can be uncomfortable on long walks. I was getting some blisters on the top of my toes. The length is perfect for me, but the toe box is so narrow that it was crunching up my toes leading to hotspots. I remedied this by just taking out the insole. They work fine now with no blisters, but I can definitely feel a difference without the insole. I walk pretty lightly without much of a heel strike, so this isn't much of a problem and have taken them on a multi day backpack like this without issues. Great support, nice and stiff and super waterproof. I forded a stream and my ankles were soaked but toes were dry. I've had gore Tex boots before, but have never been so secure from seepage as I have been in these, probably because of how they seal to my feet. The rubber is sticky enough for easy climbs and because of the close fit in the toes, you can edge pretty good. I did a short free solo in Slovenia (picture) and felt really secure. If you're looking for a comfy shoe primarily for hiking, these probably won't be your best bet, but for hiking/scrambling/mild climbing, these are it.
