Bought about six weeks ago and wear everyday with shorts and tee shirt. Have discarded Asics and become firm believer in the "sock" approach taken by la Sportiva. Foot is held comfortably and firmly. Initially thought might be short on cushioning...after wearing for week or so, cushioning quite good. Lacing system very secure and easy to use. Takes a minute or two to get accustomed to black/yellow/red color scheme. I also bought another model (la Sportiva Wildcat Turtle), a good shoe as well, but not as comfortable or structured as the Ultra Raptor. Will buy ultra raptor again.

I just wore these shoes in a variety of conditions on a multi-day hiking trip in Scotland. They protected my feet adequately over uneven and rocky terrain, kept my toes from slamming into the front on downhills and have excellent friction rubber that does a good job of clinging to dry rocks. While I thought the claim to absorb 20% of the shock coming downhill might be marketing hype, they definitely seem to be better at descending than my other boots and hiking shoes. I would buy them again.

This model of Raptor is a good update compared to the last edition. The things Ive noticed from the last version is the type and amount of foam used in the forefoot has been changed and increased so that there is more cushion in the forefoot area. The new materials of the shoe used on the inside of the shoe is a welcome update as well. The new materials at the heel provides a solid hold on your foot. This is an all around great shoe! Ive ran in it three times now with the longest being a 100k run and had no issues what so ever. I will be definitely buying more of this shoe!

I'd also recommend: Salomon

I am a die hard Puma fan but I wanted to try something different that I can use for hiking. I usually wear a 9.5 so that's what I ordered. Once I put them on they felt like they were crushing my feet. I initially thought that they are new shoes and I have break them in. Well, after wearing them for a few days they didn't give. The shoes weren't nearly wide enough. Length wise the shoes were a perfect 9.5 but width wise they were way to tight on the lateral portions of my feet and I was forced to return them.

I've never had to throw a shoe away before it wore out but I will be glad to see these in the trash. I have about 100 miles on them total (a marathon and a 50 miler, plus some training runs) The shoes felt great when I first put them on but after running a few miles I started having problems with them. See below for a summary. Starting with the positives: Great traction, cool looking Cons: -Lugs on the soles started to tear off after the first run. -Strange high spots just above the insoles (right at the instep on the left, and on the heel on the right) rubbed my feet raw no matter my sock choice. -Metal eyelet on left shoe had a sharp edge and cut through the lace after 4th run. -No drains for water means you'll slosh around for awhile if your runs have any creek crossings. -Not much ankle support for a shoe with that much heel lift. This puts a lot of torque on the ankle. Coupled with a slippery insole material, I rolled my ankle (not badly) several times the first few times out.
