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 Lightweight Runner I purchased these shoes in Spring 2015 for hopes of trail running and day hiking (I don't like heavy hiking boots when day hiking). These shoes are great!!! They're lightweight, breathe easy, dry quickly after they have gotten wet, and have great support. I personally love the tough arch support piece that is in these shoes. It really helps with rocky terrain. They do run a tiny bit small - I am usually a 6.5, which is what I ordered, but I wish I would have ordered a 7. After a year of some serious hiking they have started to wear out, which is longer than normal for me, but I will be purchasing these shoes again because I love them so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My very first pair of hiking shoes I am so happy that I picked the right shoe, the first time! I got these a few days ago...and today I climbed to Hanging Lake for the first time, easy as pie. I have normal width feet with somewhat narrow heels, and I hover between 7 and 7.5. I got these in 7 - they fit like a dream. (I wear thin to medium socks, never thick ones.) Lots of room in the toe, flexible soles that NEVER slipped once, and hugged my heels like a comfy glove. Not one moment of pain or friction. I practically ran down the trail on the way back, that's how confident I felt in these shoes. Next goal: my friends are taking me to do my first 14er. I am much less anxious now that I have these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I bought these shoes as my day hike shoes for several planned hikes during a summer road trip with my friends. We did Hanging Lake in Glenwood Springs, CO where I broke these in. It's a tough, rocky hike of 1.2 miles each way to the beautiful hanging lake and these shoes were excellent. I later wore them at Arches National Park in Moab, UT and again during some hikes and walks in Page, AZ at Horseshoe Bend, Hanging Gardens, and Antelope Canyon. These shoes held up, had great grip, and were really comfortable. I tried on several pairs of shoes at REI before I settled on these and I am very pleased with them and can't wait to take them on more day hikes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable shoe These were a must after my road-running shoes kept disintegrating on the trails. I've worn these for a few months now, and they seem to hold up well. About as good as you can hope for in handling slippery rocks and mud. My only issue is that they seem a little narrow in the toe-box. I'm typically a 7 or 7.5 in running shoes. Went with a 7 in these and they fit in all respects except that my pinky toes are a bit cramped. For that reason, you might considering ordering on the upper end of your shoe size spectrum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trail runner! Both my husband and I bought these (he of course bought the men's version). That day, we took them out on a 6-7 mile trail run followed by another 4 mile hike. The shoes were light, sturdy and snug on our feet - they didn't feel sloppy with more room than necessary. My tendons don't like motion control shoes - normally I road run in minimalist shoes. I was really impressed that I had no problems! They have the feel of a semi-minimalist shoe but built for the trail. I am looking forward to my weekly trail runs with these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to like these... I have been fighting plantar fasciitis for more than 10 years. Hoka One One Stinson and Bondi have been my salvation. After a year and a half with them and consistent stretching I'm running on a regular basis. Feeling so good, thought I might try a shoe that might have more longevity in the tread. These felt great in the store and I love the lugs. After 2.5 miles in the park/trail of just light walking my forefoot was in pain. There isn't enough support in the front of this shoe. Arch and heel are great, but I just couldn't risk any further foot issues. Returned for my Stinson ATR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I was looking for! Context: my old hiking boots needed to be replaced and I was debating between a hiking boot or a lightweight shoe that I could use for approach and easy hikes (10 miles and under). Based on what I was looking for, the REI staff recommended this shoe. I have an old sprain on my ankle so I was worried about ankle support. The first outing with these shoes was on long muddy hike along a creek The shoe delivered on grip and comfort. My ankle was a bit sore, but I think it was more from the distance than the shoe. Since, I've been on more muddy trails, short approaches (Pinnacles), and steep hikes. I don't think the shoes are waterproof, but my socks have stayed dry on all the muddy hikes. Lastly, compared to my old boots the Bushido doesn't even feel like they're there. Super comfortable, super grippy, snug fit, lightweight, great colors - exactly what I was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! I'd been running and hiking in the wrong shoes and my feet, and in particular my arches, were really feeling the pain. I was new to trail runners and tried on several pairs ... When I tried on these La Sportiva, they fit like a glove and like they were made for my feet. Because of the price point, I didn't buy right away, but went home to think about it and do some research. I ultimately bought them (a half size larger, because they were quite snug across the toe when I first tried them on) and I have never looked back. It may sound crazy, but my feet and arches felt a hundred times better the very first run and have really not bothered me since. I wear them to hike as well. Today I wore them on run/hike that included very rocky and bouldered terrain ... The grippy soles and flexibility of a shoe were perfect and ideal. I've only had them a few weeks now, but so far I've worn them about 8 times and I could not be happier with this purchase.
