    These boots have a wonderful tactile "feel for the ground" while significantly protecting feet and ankles. They are lightweight in comparison to other brands, and the fit is tremendously better on medium width feet compared to my pair of Asolo's (same size, but significantly too narrow). These are comfortable to wear all day and they breath much better than my previous Asolo full leather boot.

    The boot is rugged, relatively stiff, and offers great support on rocky terrain. The tongue is pliable and supple so that the boot fits well without clamping your foot excessively. The footbed provides good support and stability for my feet; they lock in and do not rub anywhere inside the boot. This keeps them comfortable for hours. I have hiked on snow covered trails at temperatures from ~10F to 28F. The rubber sole gets a little stiff and does not retain as much traction on the rocks at the colder temperatures. The boot is plenty warm at these modestly cool ranges. At temperatures above freezing, the rubber has a better grip on rocky terrain and provides excellent agility on climbs. The tread clears snow, sandy mud, and dirt well on the trails at the bottom of canyons.

    These are my new favorites for workout, training, and photography hikes over rugged terrain in the desert southwest canyons. They offer ample support and protection (better than expected) for carrying daypacks and moderately heavy photographic gear to remote locations.

    This is a very nice boot system.

    They are extremely light weight and built well. I did return these before using because they just didn't have the ankle support that I was looking for. I ended up going with the Salomon Quest 4D's because of the higher and stiffer ankle support. However, these were FAR more comfortable.

    I was really sad to have to send them back. This would be a great boot for moderate to average hikes. I would not recommend long hikes with heavy loads as they just don't have the support IMO for long heavy trips. I'd say 25lb pack tops. If you've got ankles built of steel and aren't prone to sprains then these would be an excellent choice for longer hikes. The sole is moderately flexible and I wouldn't suggest any serious mountaineering in them but then again that's not what they were built for.

    They appear to be built very well and should last many seasons. The tread pattern is very aggressive and will work well in any environment. Interestingly the fit is attributed to a "moccasin" or neoprene glove type system. I really enjoyed it and it was extremely comfortable! I will definitely own a pair of La Sportiva's in the future!

    Size was true to fit for me. A bounus is that you can get them in european sizing which means a 12.5 for me... yea!!!

    I would not recommend for people with "really" wide feet. However, a co-worker has wider than average feet and he raves about his boots which are a different La Sportiva model.

    I normaly wear 10.5 size
    Ok, I was bought 10.5 - they were very small!

    Ok, I was bought 11 size, try it, but my thumb was under pressure!
    I did a test ride and I liked the shoes.

    But now I think - what I wll do?
    Change brand or buy 11.5 size?
