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 Thank God for La Sportiva Hiking Boots! I purchased these boots a couple of months prior to a strenuous hike to the summit of Mt. LeConte in the Smokie Mountains. I'm an inexperienced hiker and was advised to purchase good hiking boots. They were worth EVERY penny! The climb and return were over 15 miles of rocks, roots, and slippery surfaces. I did not have any blisters or sore places. I wore wool socks. Toe box had ample room and I did not suffer like some of my friends. Just ordered a pair of La Sportiva running shoes hoping I will enjoy them as much while walking in the neighborhood. Thanks for helping my feet to have a wonderful "bucket list" experience while hiking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots, so comfortable! I bought these boots after a disastrous climb to summit mount Whitney. The boots I wore tore my feet up, heels and toes and i had broken them in plenty. I went to my local REI and told them what I was looking for ( day hikes and overnight backpacking trips with packs up to 60 lbs, cold and warm weather, and ankle support). A plus was that it only takes 3 miles to break them in, which was great because I didn't have much time until my next trip. I hiked rim to rim to rim in the Grand Canyon in December, which means temperatures around 5 at the rim with snow and ice and around 50 in the canyon. We covered around 50 miles and my feet felt great! No blisters, not cold, not hot...perfect! Definitely a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have held up! I have a pair of these that I bought in 2010 and have had heavy use hiking and light use (one or two trips a year) of backpacking. They have held up incredibly well and are just now starting to come apart at the sole, where they bend at the toe. Even though they are starting to come apart, I will continue to use for hikes close to home and will replace them with a new pair for backpacking on trails far from any replacement if they have a total blow out. Both the quality and the comfort are excellent - I have never had a blister from them - even hiking high miles with a heavy pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING These are by far the best hiking boots I have ever owned, EVER! Super comfortable and definitely worth the price. I stood in glacier run off and could barely feel the cold but certainly couldn't feel any of the water. These are extremely resilient and very comfortable. Definitely try these on with the type of socks you plan on wearing most as these fit me best with the thicker mountaineering socks with medium level padding. I own a pair of HOKA running shoes that had extra inserts and put those in these shoes for extra comfort but they weren't needed, just an added luxury! I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone. I barely broke them in before a huge back country hiking/camping journey and had no issues at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 Miles in 2 Days in Colorado (Rocky Mountain NP) I guess the title says it all, '20 Miles in 2 Days in Colorado (Rocky Mountain NP'). These shoes were comfortable the moment I took them out of the box at REI, no break in time required for me. Simple as at that, love at first fit and style! Even better when my feet where dry and comfortable after a long day of hitting the trails in 40-70 weather with snow and stream filled trails. These held up in areas where I could have used snow shoes! Can pair with gators and work great, fit great and provide even more weather protection. Really a fantastic shoe and not to mention the style, the style is really great- I got compliments on the trail. No cold feet here, paired with REI wool socks. Good to go! Love at first fitting, hope they work for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this boot! I have been through at least 5 other boots looking for the perfect one. This is the best of the bunch for me. Soft around the ankle when snugging it up. Footbed is cushioning while giving enough rigid sole. Traction is perfect. Creek or low river crossings are not given a second thought due to water proofing. I hiked 19 miles in these right out of the box and my feet had no issues. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because for me, I would like just a little bit more rigid sole. When it comes time, i will get these resoled with just a little more rigid sole. The boot is very light weight which is nice on those long hikes. Nice good looking boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, roomy toe, but developed hot spot after 4 mi I tried on every boot sold in the REI store. I liked that this boot felt light and had a roomy toe box. They were comfortable out of the box, but my feet started to get sore and tired on my first 4 mile with pack hike. My husband has a more expensive pair of boots but said his feet didn't hurt at all. These were better than another brand of hiking shoes I alternated with, but I wasn't that impressed when pushed into real use (the little toy mountain in the store is not helpful). In the end, I wish they didn't make my feel so sore. I also wish they had another hook at the top to give you more lacing options. I'll keep these since I need a boot, but I wouldn't recommend them to serious mountain hikers. Also, it did slip a bit on wet rocks and the tread seems shallow. All in all, okay for short hikes, but if I were doing a multi day camp to camp hike, I'd be really unhappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed I purchased this boot before a trip to Alaska not knowing what kind of weather or conditions I would get into. They were great. I used them in the snow, on rocky climbs, wet and dry trails and even the city streets! Lots of support for a flat land Floridian.

my feet are 24 cm long and 10 cm wide from the outside edge just below the little toe to the inside edge below the big toe. I bought a size 39. They pinch some after wearing for an hour, in the area just below the toes. Should I return them? stretch ?

Asked by: wildcherryacres
​If the boots pinch after an hour, they will not be very comfortable after logging many miles on the trail. We suggest returning and purchasing a boot with a wider toe box.

What is the best way to improve the waterproofing on these boots? I wore them on an 8 mile hike in the rain, and they were soaked through by halfway. Then I wore them on a short 3 mile hike in the snow, and my socks were damp at the end.
