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 My new favorite hiking shoes I love these shoes. I could wear these on the trail all day with no problems at all. These shoes breathe so well that my feet could feel the breeze on occasion. If I had to give the shoe a con, it is that I wish they had a little more padding on the insole under the pad of my foot (right behind the toes). I can live without the extra padding because these shoes are so comfortable. They remind me of my La Sportiva ultra raptors fit and feel, but breathe a little better. They fit tight around the foot and do not slip on the back of your ankle whatsoever, and I am yet to get a "hot spot" on my foot anywhere. They dry quickly when you get them wet too. I am most pleased with the traction, and the room for your toes to wiggle up front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs I bought these for hiking and light backpacking and couldn't be happier. The fit is perfect, heel locked in yet plenty of room in the toe box. Most recently I did an 18 mile day hike with 4,000 ft of elevation gain and my feet fared splendidly. No hot spots or pain of any kind. I couldn't be happier. Note on sizing - I normally wear an 11.5 but this shoe fit me best in a 12.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wanted to like these I bought these yesterday and after a 4.5 mile hike today. They are going to be returned. They are great except that the ball of my left foot started to hurt after mile 3. Probably due to insufficient forefoot padding/ support. I am going to try the ultra raptor which looks to have more forefoot support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best trail shoe I've owned These shoes are excellent. Great cushioning and structural rigidity when loaded with a lightweight backpack. Lightweight with great stick. This is my second pair as I wore the first one out.

What is the difference between these and the previous (closeout) Wildcat model?

Asked by: Spike Walker
​The main difference in the two models is color.
