I have run in La Sportiva Crosslites (original, not 2.0) for about five years, and expected this shoe to fit similarly (snug). It does not. It feels very roomy in the toe box, so much so that I needed to come up with some creative lacing. I have a normal to slightly wide forefoot. On straight ahead and straight up running this shoe is super - light, cool, dries quickly etc. Very sticky on rock after the rubber is worn in a bit (about 5-10 miles). But sidehills, truly rocky alpine terrain and technical toe sequences are NOT this shoe's strength. You can really feel the flatter last of the shoe NOT cradling the forefoot. You slide around a bit in the toes - not as much as if you were running in some street shoes, but still noticeable enough to be hesitant on that kind of terrain. If I buy another pair I might size down. I wear a 9.5-10, and bought the 43 (which is very snug in the Crosslites). Next time I might go down to the 42.5 in the Anakonda. I wish there was consistency between La Sportiva Shoes. The only other comment is that the minimal drop (3mm) was enough of a transition from the Crosslites (9mm) that my calves were extra tight after the first several runs - normal minimalist adjustment I hear...

I'd also recommend: None!

I like the shoe, although they were a bit stiff out of the box, rubbing a blister on the back of my Achilles. After a few short runs and playing with the back of the shoe before wearing it, it feels great. I like the support, the tread, and the grip on tough trails. I was a big fan of the X-Country (had 2 pairs), but this seems like a worthy successor.

Hands down the worst trail runner I've ever purchased. The high heel back put a wound on my Achilles just from walking around the house, it's no wonder I couldn't find this shoe in any running store in town. They are on their way back to rot in a warehouse somewhere right now.
