These run small

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sente from Oklahoma on Monday, April 23, 2018
I'm a La Sportiva fan and based on the reviews was excited to try these. Unfortunately, these run really small. I'm typically an 11.5, but wanted to go an extra half size bigger since my use case is long trail hikes/runs and mountain approaches and I wanted extra space in the toes for downhills and extra socks (e.g. planning the grand canyon rim to rim to rim 45 miler this fall). I started with a 45.5 pair that's supposed to be a size 12 US, but they were too small. I then went to the 46 (12.5) and still too small. The lace pattern for me didn't secure my foot in the back of the shoe enough unless I REALLY tied them tight to keep my foot from sliding forward, and with the rubber toe box you feel it when they hit the end. Unfortunately, Sierra didn't have a size bigger. I'd order at least a full size if not a size and a half bigger if you want to try these out.
