Sizing notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe.

For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from aggressive styling meets superb traction Bought this for a series of hikes in Oregon. Feels great when on, and did not need to break in. Thick toungue makes it a little warm, but adds cushioning against the laces on descents. Order a full size up. Great traction, relatively lightweight, and looks awesome. Decent stability. Easy to clean. I went through puddles of water and a lot of mud. It's not waterproof, but I had no issue with keeping my feet dry. I've been wearing Solomons for years, and La Sportiva is equally good and maybe even better than the speedcross. At $140, it's on the high end in this category. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for my feet I was initially impressed by the quality of the shoe, and was excited to try these out after great success using the La Sportiva Ultra Raptors in the past. After just 3 miles in to my hike; I realized that these shoes were not for me. The arch support felt off to me, and the shoe rubbed the back of both feet causing hot spots that made it very difficult to continue uphill. I am sure these shoes are excellent, but I ended up returning these after just one hike and now I'm trying the La Sportiva wildcats out. Make sure you walk around the store wearing these for a while before getting them (as you should with all shoes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cushioning and traction, durable Have used these on the trails in the hills around my house, along with an all day 40-mile run up and down (and up and down, again) Mount Diablo on some at time very tehcnical single track. Feet stayed comfortable, no hot spots, minimal slippage, my only bodily harm was poison oak. I am not huge, but prefer cushioning since running over small rocks at high velocity is at the very least uncomfortable, if not risky for causing injury. All around durable shoe (have put about 120 miles on them, minimal wear on the sole, uppers holding out well). I'm considering wearing them on my next 100-miler. If you own other La Sportiva models, consider a half (Euro) size smaller; alternatively you can use a slighter thicker sock. As with any shoe, best to come in and get fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank; Feel like a hiking boot Super cushioning. Very comfortable. HUGE lugs. Feels like shoes with clits. When they say it is "structured" it means build like a tank. Great support. Same feel as La Sportiva Wildcat or Ultra Raptors, but a little more flexible. True to size 44.5 = 11 US

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mountain trail shoes Wow, these are awesome shoes for technical mountain terrain. These are my first La Sportiva's and I've been a Hoka running for years. After moving to northern New Mexico from the east coast last year I struggled to find the kind of trail shoe for rugged and tactical terrain. I tried the Hoka speedgoat (1,2), saucony peregrine's and a few others but none gave the stability and agility over rocky trails that these do. They are on the heavy side but for the trade off your feet and ankles will get great protection. They run small and I needed to go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them! Spartan racer I bought these shoes a week prior to running a 16.5 mile Spartan race. These were the most comfortable OCR shoes I've ever worn. I usually run in Salmomen speedcross 3's and tried the speedcross 4. What I love about my La Sportiva's are the roomy toe box and heel cup. I have flat feet and use orthotics. The La Sportiva's were better able to accommodate my orthotics then the other shoes. The treads are wonderful and they drain really well. I combined the shoes with some wool socks and my feet felt great. Well, as great as one could expect after logging 16.5 miles over 9 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels like a brand new set of off road tires These are my first pair of trail running shoes. Usually running on semi rocky, muddy, dry, loose, and off-trail trails in Colorado. I havnt found a time where they slip, maybe on wet rock but then again when is that ever a good idea. Very comfy for being a little stiff which helps give some added confidence in placing the sole on uneven terrain. Responsive and to me $140 is a decent price for what you get. I wear a 10.5 Mens in all my shoes, this one didnt feel like it ran large but a little narrow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad tongue Fifty years ago it was common for tongues to slide off to the side of the foot, causing problems. Good shoe makers figured out how to make the tongues stay centered. Not these guys. You'll like these shoes if you like stopping your run or hike frequently to drag the tongue back to the center so it doesn't rub the side of your foot. If not, look elsewhere.

Questions & Answers

How is the width?  My U.S. street shoe size is 8.5 EE. 

Asked by: billf
​These shoes are a standard D width. If you wear an EE, these will most likely be too narrow for you.

Why does the Euro Market get 3 different color options Vs.  the American Market.  La Sportiva lost a fan today.
