Decades of experience led to the best climbing shoes around, motivating a group of American climbers to start bringing the shoes out of Italy to resell for profit. Recognizing the international demand, the company created a North American branch. Whether you're attempting climbing's "seven summits" ...

    My street shoe size is 6.5/7 and ordered a 38.5. It was overall too small...not just in the toe but all around. Wearing midweight Smartwool socks, there was pressure all around. Otherwise the boots are solid. The seem a bit heavy (4.2 lbs for the pair) but I think that's fine for the support and warmth.

    I was looking for a shoe to correct a situation going on with my left foot. I was intrigued by how the laces connects to straps that traverse the whole shoe so that when the laces tighten, the whole shoe tightens to conform to your foot. This shoe does just that its why its so unique.

    I wear a size 13 medium heal and am 235 lbs. Because of the way the shoes are laced, I strongly recommend loosening the laces completely all the way down before you attempt to put your foot in this shoe. Although they are tight even for narrow feet they can accommodate a wider D width foot but not E or EE.

    When put your foot in and tighten up carefully because the wrap around sole really hugs your feat along with the stretch material over the top of the shoe. What you will find is the most comfortable technical running shoe, especially in down hill gravel terrain. The shoe not only conforms to your foot better than any shoe I have put on, but it also conforms to the terrain better than any trail shoe.

    If you wear out the outsides of shoes rather quickly, I do not recommend these soft sole shoes, they will not last.

    If you are looking for a shoe to walk around in as a general everyday shoe, I do not recommend these shoes.

    But if you are looking for the best trail running shoe, and you have a heal that is on the small side of D-width shoe or narrower, I wholeheartedly highly recommend this shoe for that specific purpose. This shoe is very well built and if used only for exercise it will last.

    I recommend a half to whole size larger. When you shop for shoes where sometimes you can run into a brand thats a bit big than our normal size, then go up a half size with this one, but if you can't do that from one brand to the next, then go up a whole size with this one. But no matter what the length size, this shoe is narrow at first and going up a size will not change the width.

    It is wonderful shoes for running, light hiking and everyday walking. However, the size of this shoes is different from the usual EUR Sizes. EUR size 37 is the US size 6. If you follow the this instruction, then you don't have to go half size up.

    It is difficult for me to find hiking shoes with a wide box for toes but tight enough in the heel. These fit perfectly. The reason I picked Sportiva's is because the best known hiker in the Adirondacks raved about this particular Vibram sole for the high peaks. He felt this functioned well on muddy wet rock as well as dry rock (granite). I have not worn these yet on our hikes so can't address that but I take his word for it.
    My only complaint was the insole which had no cushioning. I needed to add a Dr. Scholl's gel insole and then it was fine.

    Haven't actually used them yet, but they look and feel great. Very cushioned. Seem to run a a 1/2 size small.

    One of the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever had. This is my second pair. I receive many compliments on the looks, and I tell everyone I got them from Sierra Trading Post.

    I was looking for some trail runners from La Sportiva - because an earlier pair were exactly what I wanted. These area little lighter -which may actually work out great for a hot rim to rim in the Grand Canyon. That's the plan anyway. The traction is great, the breath-ability is great - time will tell if they have enough support for real long days with a medium to light pack.

    from out of the box they are super comfortable with great arch support and very breathable. I would buy another pair if they still had my size.
