    La Sportiva FC ECO 3.2 GTX Hiking Boots - Women's is rated 4.7826 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THESE BOOTS Four weeks before leaving on a trip to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, the top eyelet/hook on my Merril Moabs ripped out of the boot when tightening the laces. The Merrils had started stretching out with all the hiking I was doing to get ready and were giving me blisters anyway. In a panic I researched every boot I could get fast and would have a short break-in period. Probably tried close to 10 kinds as I have wide feet and issues with a bunion and previous foot surgery. I read the reviews for these boots and was able to find them in one of the REIs in my area. Was a bit skeptical when the salesman recommended what I thought was a smaller size than I take but he "had a chart". He was right. Longer story short, I took home a few different brands and wore them around the house first. The La Sportiva felt the best and were the only boots that would keep my heel locked down. I can't comment on the arch support since I use a Superfeet insert. Gave them a limited test of about a 7 mile hike on a moderate trail that first weekend and was amazed how comfortable they were. Continued to hike in them the next few weekends with increased difficulty and not one single blister. Hiked the 26 miles of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu plus other shorter hikes in Peru in both dry and rainy weather. Sore feet from hiking over rocks and stones yes, but not one blister and my feet stayed dry. These are truly the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I may have them bronzed when they wear out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my low volume feet! At last, I have returned from a backpacking trip with my toenails intact! For me, these boots have the perfect combination of a wide-enough and tall-enough toebox with a low profile forefoot. The area from the toebox back to the arch of the foot is not tall, and THAT (along with good lacing technique) helps keep my feet from sliding forward and bumping my toes on the fronts of the boots on downslopes. If you look at the boots from the side, you'll see that they have almost a clown-shoe look, as they're very flat and then rise up at the toes. Hurray for a VERY patient REI bootfitter who spent an hour with me until she found the right pair. Beyond the thrill with the fit, I have been pleased with all other aspects of these boots: they are not hot, they're wonderfully lightweight, very flexible yet somehow also supportive, and nearly waterproof. I say nearly because after 4 miles of slogging through unavoidable puddles on a trail my wool socks were damper than just sweat would account for, yet much drier than the feet of my companions who were wearing other GoreTex boots. The boots dried quickly when it stopped raining 30 hours later. Having just put 65 miles on the boots, in the mountains of Montana, I can't think of a single complaint. The boots are a delight to wear around town too, as comfortable as my Nikes. The earlier reviewer who noted, with a bit of embarrassment, that these boots stay laced was right: they DO. I don't know why some laces easily come undone, but I've had the same problem she mentions with other boots continually unlacing, and that little annoyance is gone with these. I marked these boots as good for light loads, but I'm not sure what "light" is: I carried 30 pounds comfortably on my 130 pound frame and felt supported, but I use the green SmartFeet in my boots so I'm not sure whether that was due to the SmartFeet or the boots. If you're looking for a boot for low volume feet, a boot that is flexible and lightweight and performs well in wet conditions, this may be your boot. Please don't decide based ONLY on reviews, though: work with a boot fitter. I wish I'd done so 4 toenails and a number of years earlier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Feet! If my feet could smile... they would! I finally found a pair of boots that work! I have hammer-toes... really bad. In fact the REI specialist who helped me had the same problem; she calls them Frankentoes. I got a good laugh and a perfectly fit pair of boots. There was zero break in period. I went out and did 7 miles on a hard/rocky/slippery/muddy/stream ridden trail my first outing. No toe-bang (which about crippled me in my Trekstas). The ankle support is great and the laces stay tied no matter what I'm doing. At the end of the hike I don't feel the need to peel out of my boots immediately. These are wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Kinda Boot I own two pairs of these boots. I plan on hiking the Camino de Santiago later this year and have been using these lightweight, comfortable boots to train in. Very easy break-in, plenty of toe room, nice snug fit in the heel area and lots of support. These are waterproof without making my feet hot. Excellent ankle support for rocky trails. I have every confidence that these boots will take me all the way to Compostela! Buen Camino!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Bought these boots for hike to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon in late spring. Am wearing them for regular hikes on various trails now. The boots are comfortable, sturdy, light weight and easy to clean. A good tip -- take the insoles out after each hike to let them dry. And, it may sound silly, but unlike every other pair of boots I have ever owned, these have laces that stay tied. Love not having to stop to tie them all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous boot I had a trip planned to hike the very rugged and varied terrain of the Camino de Santiago. A wonderful pair of comfortable hiking boots I had worn for years, developed a hole in the heel just days before my trip. Not knowing what to buy to replace them, with no time for break in, I searched the reviews on REI's website, then went to the store to try some styles that were recommended. This boot fit my foot the best and felt good from the start. There was honestly no breaking in and they were comfortable all 90 miles of my journey in all kinds of weather. We walked 15 miles a day for six days and I never had a blister or sore feet. Since returning, I wear them on my daily 3 mile walks. With the great support and comfort, couldn't think of wearing anything else. I also think socks are very important in regard to blisters. So many on the hike got blisters and some felt it was because of the poor fitting socks they were wearing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HIKING SHOE EVER I just returned from a 5-day trip hiking Salkantay mountain in Peru. Several times I thought, I can't wait to write a review on these boots when I get back. They were by far the best purchase I've made. We hiked through all different types of terrain including steep rocky riverbeds, through 3 days of mud and pouring rain - and my feet never once got wet or sore. I had tons of ankle and foot support and the laces stayed tight and never came untied. I was deciding between these and a pair of Keens... so happy I stayed with the La Sportivas because my husband's Keens soaked through. You will LOVE these boots...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. After a couple of short walks around town, I took these out last weekend for their first "real" hike (6 miles). Being spring in the Pacific NW, it rained non-stop the entire time, and I crossed several small streams. My feet stayed dry, warm, and comfortable the entire time. This is my first pair of La Sportiva boots, but so long as they hold up, they probably won't be my last.
