Another winner from La Sportiva

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jonathan from Washington on Friday, June 16, 2017
I've long been a fan of La Sportiva, and these shoes don't disappoint. I bought them as a pair of go anywhere do anything shoes for traveling light on an outdoor adventure I'm planning to New Zealand later this year: I think they'll be perfect. They're lightweight, waterproof, highly breathable, and have fantastic traction.

These are replacing/upgrading a beloved pair of La Sportiva Raptors. Comparing the two, I find these Primer Lows to feel more cushy but no less rugged. I'm typically a size 12/46 Euro. My Raptors are a 46.5, these are a 46/12.5 and they fit perfectly, They feel noticeably roomier in the toe box compared to the Raptors, as well as a tiny bit longer despite the slightly smaller size.

The Vibram sole is extremely sticky with an aggressive tread pattern. Sole support is good. The arch feels slightly low, not that that's a bad thing, just something to note.
