Dope! Wide toe box and lots of support. But order 1 whole size up if you plan on using them as intended. Not 1/2 like ppl are recommending!

I'd also recommend: Vasque, Keen, Adidas Terrex, Northface

I've worn the Ultra Raptor for years and while they run narrow and small, aside from the more rapid than usual sole wear, I'm mostly satisfied. Because of $15 off coupon, I decided to try the GTX which is essentially the same shoe style sans waterproofing and color. Ordered the same size I wear in the Ultra Raptor and noticed the GTX runs a bit narrower and found I needed a half size larger. Zappos immediately sent a return label and shipped the replacement pair overnight. Very satisfied overall but be warned to order at least a half to full size larger and be aware the GTX runs narrow.

Well constructed footwear. I would size up about a half, though. I wear a 10.5 and tried to match the European size and was short. Making it work though. Truly waterproof and pretty sharp to look at.

I'd also recommend: Gore-tex

This is 8th pair of La Sportivas, up to now I have never had any issues (except with one pair). My only gripe with these is that the size is not true to feel. I always take 11 (44,5)and have never had any issues. With these, after longer mountain runs, My big toes hurt, as they are hitting the front. Not sure if this is due to the rubber lip in from. I would personally go 1/2 size larger. Also seem a bit narrower in the frontal outside area (below my little toes)!

Probably the worst shoe I've ever owned. First, design issue, there sewn tongue/sleeve, so it's hard to get your foot in, and there is no heel tab to pull on. Pain in the butt to get on. Quality issue, The tread lugs started tearing off in the literally the first couple hours of wearing them. I contacted customer service and they said I could return them and have that credit be put towards something else. I choose to get a pair of TC Pros, I send it all in- I get another pair of Raptor's back. I contact customer service again, and they tell me they changed the regulations since I got the GMA to the time I returned the shoe, and now they can only replace with the same shoe. So I'm SOL. So in addition to getting a crappy shoe, I also had a crappy experience with their customer service and have resorted to selling the replacement raptor on ebay for pennies. Needless to say, la sportiva lost a customer for good. Oh, and I work at an outdoor shop that sells La Sportiva, so they also lost every customer I turn away from their brand. Way to go La Sportiva.
