Ultra Raptors for Ultra Marathons
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tom from Idaho on Monday, March 5, 2018
This is a lot of shoe and a heck of a deal at the STP price. Only have about 30 miles in them so far but they are breaking in nicely. The fit was initially more tight that I expected even after sizing a half size and getting what I normally wear in La Sportiva (bought online). I would have liked to try another half size up, but more than likely would have been too loose in the toe box as there is always a bit of stretch after the break in period. Great grip on every surface and a nice padded tongue. Seems like they breathe well and dry quick. The ride is a bit stiff and firm which is good on technical stuff, but the comfort also seems to be there for the long runs. I've never had an issue with the quality or durability of La Sportiva and I anticipate these will follow suit. Overall these are fantastic trail shoes and would even make a great light hiker.
