Excellent product, glad I got them. One of the only brands to make this style of shoe without using ridiculous colors. my last pair of approach shoes were Asolo brand (very similar design), but their new line only comes in neon orange and green;I can't wear that. These La Sportiva shoes are stylin' and fully technically functional. My only complaint would be that they run a bit small. I ordered a 43.5 (US 10.5). that would normally be on the large size for me. for these, I probably should have gotten a 45 to compensate for the mis-sizing. However, I liked the shoes so much I decided to just stick with the smaller size and snug fit (more helpful on climbs anyway). Just be aware when ordering.

La Sportiva's Boulder X are great shoes for light hiking. They are rugged for outdoor terrain yet delicate on your feet. Zappos has one of the best customer services policies I have experienced. The shoes I ordered came very quickly. The size, however, was a bit tight. I went online ordered the correct size, printed the label and in a matter of two days had the correct size and had shipped the previous ones with no cost.

These are amazing boots. There's a break in period, but they're super sturdy and comfortable once they're broken in. My only complaint is that the laces come undone.

Ridiculously expensive and worth it. My third pair of La Sportiva, all are different type and same size. All fit from day one, all perform as described.

At first these shoes felt snug on my feet, but after loosening the strings and wearing them more, they felt very comfortable. Great support and good grip on the bottom for walking the trails. Overall I am very impressed with this brand. Never tried it before, but so glad I did. Great purchase.

Can't I just say...awesome! Fits like a glove. I wear a men's 10. I'm more on the narrow side. I would recommend bumping up a 1/2 size. Got the 10 1/2 or 43.5 euro. Seems stable. Looks great.

Great boot. Fit well, comfortable, very rugged and well made. True to size, not for someone who has very wide feet. I highly recommend this boot.

I got a half size down from my regular shoe size. I'm glad I did. They are tight, but not uncomfortable. They look good, feel good, and most importantly perform well.

Quite possibly the best bouldering/sport climbing shoe on the market. Fits true right out of the box. If you size them like a slipper, you will never have an issue with the closure system.

This shoe is hella sturdy! The toe box really is tight, I ordered a full size up and it's snug but not uncomfortable. Only criticism I have is that it can get hot sometimes so I have to wear thinner, moisture-wicking socks. I Have the Raptors, which sold me to the brand and it's amazing build quality.

Monster boots, as in excellent in every way. Fit perfectly out of the box, and have never had a blister. I've had the same pair now for almost seven years, and I've gone climbing in Bolivia, several treks in the Himalaya (Annapurna Circuit, Dolpo, Langtang, Manaslu), hiking and climbing in the Sierras, and now use them as daily boots during the winter in Central Asia, where it is routinely around minus 20 (F). Never cold except the latter (Central Asia) where after about 20-30 minutes of being outside they get a bit nippy, but so does the rest of me. Superb in every way - excellent with crampons, can wear them all day - this are the most comfortable of any of my shoes, save except for my La Sportiva guide shoes. Maybe my foot is just ideal for the way La Sportiva makes shoes and boots - size 45, medium width - but all of their shoes, rock shoes included, just fit perfectly and are super comfortable. Edging is good in these also. And riding public transportation here in Kazakhstan - which is a contact sport - the boots give you an edge, as I can grind the toes of those who mess with me into submission. Look great in the pool hall too.

Great boot! I was hoping to use it on the JMT this coming Summer. I found the boot to provide extremely poor cushioning and support. Horrible horrible arch support, but I might be a part of the problem. I'm 6-1 and about 235, and even with a good insole, these boots made my back hurt. I really wish they would work for me - but after testing my theory as to why my back was killing me after a couple of miles or so...I now am positive it's this boot. If you're looking for a cushioned support - I'd stay clear of this boot. It worked for me for an hour to hour and a half hike, then I had to stop. Sometimes a boot just isn't for you.

Love the style and functionality. I normally wear a size 9 in average widths. I had to get a 10 and they are still quite narrow through the toe box.

If your looking for a sharp looking,great fitting light weight boot,this definitely fits the order! I wear a 12 and my foot is narrow, that's what I ordered but had to return and get the 46.5 (12.5), so they are half size small. I love the boot! The cushioning could be better but Dr. Scholls can handle that.

I have wide forefoot and very narrow heel. These fit great. Really locked the heel down and gave toes enough room. I replaced the insoles with Superfeet green since arch support since I need better arch support. I don't like the to-the-toe lacing.

You cannot go wrong with this shoe. It will mold to your feet and you wont walk away hobbled. They are stiff enough to handle anything from super technical to all day multi-pitch. I have a dozen pairs of shoes and these are always the ones that don't let me down.

I ordered a size 9.5 from the sizing suggestions and should have ordered an 11. The boots are well made and look good but are not sized correctly.

This is an awesome boot. Received them recently and now training up for a trip to the Tetons. This is a very technical boot, combining hybrid elements of rock shoe (mythos-like), approach shoe, sturdy hiker, waterproof construct and snow-prepared. It's really a do everything, light boot directed toward the alpine environment. La Sportiva always runs a bit small. I wear a 10 and had to fit to the 44cm, 10.5+.

Just finished my 1st hike in these and really liked how you can adjust the fit with the lacing system. Nice, wide toe box, sturdy sole and supportive instep. Even though it's an 'Approach Shoe' these will work great for scrambling day hikes too.

Very well constructed shoe but it was too narrow for my wider feet. Other reviewers are correct, order 1/2 size larger than you normally wear and this might fit properly.

This is my second pair of La Sportiva's and they are still the best right out of the box. They are very comfortable from day one with no issues. So far longest day was 12 hours carrying a 40 lb pack in Alaska and they still were great. My other pair is the Napal EVO and they are much stiffer, but excellent.
