This is my second pair of these shoes. I only took these out of the box to insure fit, which was exactly as expected. They went back into the box, and into my closet, awaiting the day when the first pair wears out! I have had the first pair for about a year. I run about 20 miles a week generally... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by snelson from Carbondale, CO on Friday, November 7, 2014
    La Sportivas are usually too narrow for me ( I have a Medium Wide foot), but this shoe is totally fine. A little stretchy on the sides to allow for width, fairly light, great grippy traction, heel is really locked in, moderate cushion, a slightly lower ramp angle compared to a traditional shoe, and a bit of stability in the heel for some pronation control.

    The uppers finally split right at the junction of the grey toebox piece and the side of the foot, but that took a year or so to happen. Other than that they lasted quite a while.

    I did have to size up 1/2 size than my normal size to get a great fit. Great shoe, sad to see it go.

    I can't wait to run some peaks in these shoes. Like the lace covers to keep out scree and feel like the tread will provide good braking on steep descents. I had to return for 1/2 size up from what I wear in Brooks and Saucony. As durable as they seem, they do not feel heavy or clumsy like some shoes I have had. Great price and product from STP.

    lightweight , deep lugs and attractive appearance made these trail runners a great fit for me. Price was great. Seems to grip trail well. I am very pleased so far. Hopefully they will hold up over time .
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jeepin4Ever from Colorado Rockies on Thursday, October 9, 2014
    I bought these looking for a nice, comfortable trail shoe with potential for good grip and a bit of water resistance. I own other styles of Sportiva and love the look and fit so I figured these would be perfect for my needs. I was right! The fit is snug, which I like having a narrow foot, and the traction is incredible. I hike just about all terrain and so far in the couple months I've owned them I've been able to try them in mud, slick rock, scree, dirt and snow. They do not disappoint in any of those conditions. I Like them so much I bought 2 additional pair to have on hand so I'm not stuck without my to-date favorite trail shoe when they get discontinued.

    Sierra's sizing guide is right on with these, but do keep in mind they are a better fit for those of us with a foot on the narrow side.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pam from Anchorage, AK from Alaska on Tuesday, September 30, 2014
    I bought these shoes to test on the mountains of southcentral Alaska in anticipation of hiking the Sierra High Route. I used them all summer in Alaska and had no complaints. Because I liked them so much I ordered another 2 pair. I started the Sierra High Route with a brand new pair and they served me well. We covered about 115 miles of the route in about 12 days and I had no problems what-so-ever. They grip on rock like nobody's business and are very comfortable. I did end up sewing a loop of dental floss into the lace covering so I would have an anchor for my Dirty Girl gaitors as there is no access to the laces.

    I am female and generally wear a women's size 10. These shoes are sized for men and I ordered an 11.

    • Answer I am not familiar with the Wild Cat shoe, but you mention you have "a wide toe bed." The La Sportiva is fairly narrow, and I say this, as a woman wearing this shoe and my feet are medium (towards narrow).

    • Answer I have no idea. The last is different, I know that. I believe the Wild Cat 2.0 and the Ultra Raptor are built around the same last, but I think the C-Lite 2.0 uses a completely different last.

      As for width: I wear a Standard (D) width and found this to be in line with that. You might be able to size up a half-size and see if that gives you the lateral space your toes need.

    • Answer I love both the wildcats and these C-lite 2.0 I find them to be very similar in fit. Because of the soft-shell like "cover" they are a bit more to get on but not bad. Once on they are extremely comfortable and I love LaSportiva products. Only ice boots I would own as well.
      Hope this helps

    • Answer I am not familiar with the Wild Cat. However, I can say this... I bought the C-Lite 2.0 to replace the Crossleather (which I really liked). One of the differences is that the C-Lite 2.0 has a more spacious toe box, which does't work as well for me but might do the trick for you!?
      Answered on 10/22/2014 3:03:20 PM by Forest Gump from Montana
    • Answer I have these shoes and I am a medium width. That being said, I think they feel a little too roomy at the toes for my taste. I like my runners to be a little snug or "clingy." I feel like they hold my heel nicely and have decent cushioning. Because of the toe room, I use them for daily wear/light hiking.

      Hope this helps!

    • Answer This is the first La Sportiva shoe I have worn. I tried getting a shoe with a wide toe box as I have a neuroma. The neuroma was not affected by this shoe.
      Answered on 10/22/2014 11:10:10 PM by Pam from Anchorage, AK from Alaska
    • Answer I haven't used the Wild cat so cannot compare it with C-lite 2.0; one thing i can confirm though is the shoe has a narrow fit for toe bed.

      My feet have regular toe bed and a standard US 8 fits me great.
      I ordered half size larger as recommended but still it was too tight at the toe bed ; i had to remove the insole to make it a bit comfortable. ( Not in a position to return it back being so far)

      Also putting them on and getting them off is a task of patience.

      Hope this helps.

    • Answer This would be a good choice. The injection-molded, dual-density EVA midsoles provide ample cushion on high mileage days and help maintain a light, stable platform.
