Great Shoe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lady Hiker from Vermont on Tuesday, June 6, 2017
This is my second pair of Raptors--I'm replacing my first after two great years of hikes and runs. Light enough to feel comfortable on a trail run, but sturdy enough for a long, tough day (their maiden voyage was the Great Range in the Adirondacks).

The soles are durable, but they do wear down a bit more quickly than traditional hiking boots. That being said, they're by far the most comfortable boots I've owned, and their flexibility is great.

It was recommended to me that I buy a size up, and I would definitely buy big. (I wear a size 7.5 / 38.5M, and I bought a size 8.5 / 40.) Especially if you're using these for hiking, or running on trails with a lot of descending, you'll want some extra room in the toe box.
