Nice trail runners

Reviewed by MTtrailrunner from MT on Friday, December 14, 2012
These are my first LaSportiva shoes, and so far so good. Weight is right around what my Cascadias weigh, so not light but a decent tradeoff in grip and security. The aggressive tread on these is nice when things get a little more gnarly or wet or loose. The fit is good. These lock the heel area very well, yet still allow wiggle room for the toes. I did have to size up as others mentioned. According to the STP conversion, I should be 43, but I had to send back and ended up with a 44. I think that gave me the best balance between foot feeling secure but still room for some foot swell. Haven't had any long runs in these but I hope will handle those fine. The flexibility seems good, the sole cushioned but not crazy so, and fit seems to lean ever so slightly toward the running side of the hiking shoe spectrum, so I have high hopes.
