Best trail running shoe!Reviewed by Mountain girl from Estes Park, CO on Thursday, June 21, 2018My daughters favorite trail running shoe! This is her 2nd pair, and she won't consider wearing anything else!
Run smallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Trailwalker from Maine on Tuesday, June 12, 2018I usually take an 8.5 in running shoes- ( Saucony, ASICS) and ordered a 40.5 in these- they were pretty snug, with no room in the toe box, and less cushion under the forefoot. I returned, sad. Seemed like toe protection was minimal at best.
Perfect FitVerified Buyer Reviewed by kellyb from washington on Friday, June 8, 2018Have used for trail running and hiking. No break in period, serious tread, comfortable. Great buy, highly recommend!
Satisfied, but disappointedVerified Buyer Reviewed by Runner from Rural Alaska on Tuesday, May 15, 2018I like these shoes a lot, but I have not been able to run in them yet due to the muddy season still being here, Hopefully I will in a week. I am disappointed that my left shoe seems to have a manufacturing issue where the padding that is supposed to be at the rim of the shoe in the back was somehow pushed down to the middle of the shoe. when I wear them, I notice the difference, but it doesn't seem to bother me too much. Hopefully after using them the padding will get pushed into the right location. This is basically a production error and should not be found normally on these shoes, but they do need to inspect the shoes they are selling for defects before they send them.
NIce trail shoeReviewed by Reinerrider from Arizona on Saturday, April 21, 2018I ordered these as and the Akyra. These went back. Well made but I did not feel the support I needed in the Akasha. I have mild pronation, almost neutral, and these did not feel they would suit my foot needs. Perhaps they are designed for someone with supinaiton. They are the quality you expect fro La Sportiva, just not for my foot type.
Nice but runs smallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Orchidsister from California coast on Saturday, March 17, 2018This size 10 runs small. Loved the La Sportive color and styling, and its grippy outer sole. It has a good snug heel. Unfortunately it's short and tight in the ball of the foot, so I am returning it.
Quality appearanceVerified Buyer Reviewed by Dog mom from Wisconsin on Saturday, February 10, 2018I over pronate and these shoes just don't work for me. If you are neutral in your foot position, I think you will like them. They seemed to made from very sturdy material.
This is my second pair!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Carrie from CO on Monday, January 29, 2018I love these shoes - I spend a lot of time hiking and running on trails and these are comfortable and have great traction. I sized up half a size, because my feet swell a bit on long hikes. I even backpacked 20 miles/day in Portugal and only got one blister... which seems miraculous. Just bought a second pair because my first pair is about to wear out, since I wear these all the time.
Low volume toe boxVerified Buyer Reviewed by runsalot from CO on Thursday, January 25, 2018I generally like La Sportiva shoes, however, these fit narrow and have a very low volume toe box. The length was fine but my toes would soon have blisters from the tops of the shoes crowding them. They were returned.
