After wearing Keen Utility shoes to work for many years, I’ve started to need a little more cushioning in my older age. These are so comfortable! My knees appreciate extra bounce and the feeling of walking on air. The only downside is that they’re not as slip resistant as I hoped. On our wet tile floor, I’m ice skating!

The size recommended by Zappos turned out to be perfect. A bit on the roomy side allowing me to wear thicker socks. The shoe seems sort of cumbersome but is surprisingly flexible to move in. My foot is wide in the toe area and has a skinny heel - no problem with this shoe.

These ran a bit small and didn't have as much arch support as my son needs. They also have a fairly thick heel that he didn't like the feel of.

These are really good technical running shoes. Grips rocky surfaces like a goat. Definitely go at least a full size up. I wear American 8 1/2 - 9 and ended up ordering 10s.

tech shoes have come a long way in the past 10 years and these are a perfect example: light, versatile, comfortable at a decent price. Most comfortable shoe i own (tried a couple of other La Sportiva approach shoes). cheers!

Fit was one size too small. Volume of shoe is smallish-normal. Not the most comfortable shoe I've owned but I haven't owned or found many shoes that are very comfortable.

Only those with narrow feet need apply. I prefer a wide shoe but can often wear a medium. It depends on the manufacturer. But these shoes, no. They are billed as medium, but they are not. I tried going up yet another half size (they run small as well) but that did not help at all with the width issue. So, can't wear them -- but I sure would have loved to because they are well made and have a sole made out of a material that I think would have been great on slippery surfaces, rocks, etc. Nice looking too. The cushioning seemed very good as well. Oh well, back to my search. Hey La Sportiva, how about making shoes that fit the rest of us?

Spire GTX

These are very sturdy shoes, which offer excellent support with regards to pronation. Arch support is fine - but that is mostly a matter of which insole you select. The tread is excellent for hiking, and they are also fine to wear around the city. The reason I'm giving them a low rating is due to the width of the toe box. They are simply too narrow to wear for long periods of time, and result in squished toes and hurting feet. They are fine for a few miles, but anything longer is not comfortable for me. I tried going a 1/2 size up, but the larger size was simply longer and no wider in the toe box. Note I've never had this issue with any other shoe in the past, and I consider myself to have narrow feet.

My usual shoe size is a medium with a narrow heel and length 7.5 US. I ordered one pair of my usual shoe size and one pair of a size 8. The size 8 was a little too big. The 7.5 was perfect, comfortable right out of the box, and has performed perfectly with daily use. I had another pair of the same shoe for years and am so glad they have kept the size and quality the same.

La Sportiva has become my new favorite trail run & hiking shoe. Well made, supports your foot and is comfortable to my sensitive feet. Sizing is different in that I wear a 5 or 5.5, but with La Sportiva, I wear a 6.

Akyra GTX

  • Overall5Rated 5 stars

  • Style 5Rated 5 stars

I have a slightly wide foot (across my toes) and a slightly narrow heel. This shoe laces well, so that I can get a snug fit on my heel, and the mesh in the foot box is giving enough to make this a perfect fit for my foot. I do usually take a medium width, but sometimes a M width is too narrow - this was perfect. What's excellent about this shoe is that is light and cool, while keeping my pronation-prone foot. Arch support is very good. I sometimes use orthotics (and could, with this shoe's removable insole) but don't need to. I also need a neutral-appearing shoe that looks okay for work. I spend a lot of hours on my feet (teacher) and then want to do brisk walks/jobs - this shoe is perfect. All aspects of this shoe support stability. I have three pair of the Bushido shoes - love them, but they are a bit more stiff in the ankle, and a bit heavier. I also have some problems with balance, especially if jogging/running and need a shoe to keep my ankles stable, these are great. First day, they felt a bit tight, I worked with the lacing, it took a couple of days until I had it right and now they are really well-fitting. I feel confident running in them and have had no need to add in my knee brace. I didn't think a shoe could compete with the La Sportiva Bushido, but for warmer weather and more flexibility in the sole and toe box, this is by far my favorite. And it's pretty.

I really wanted these shoes to work for me because they look great and likely would be comfortable hikers. But I have a really wide forefoot due to a bunion and the material on that area of my foot was rubbing. I normally wear an 8.5 but the 9 was the best length. I had to return these.

(Review from my wife) To be fair, I do have a slightly narrow foot, but this pair was probably one of the widest pairs of hiking boots that I've tried. In order to get the shoe to fit snuggly (and even then my foot was slipping quite a bit), I had to tie the laces very tightly and I could feel the tightness of the laces digging into the tops of my feet.

I have an average size 7 foot and these sneakers were unbearablely narrow. I could barely get them on and they actually hurt. The lace system was was also problematic. Great looking sneaker though.

BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL shoes!! They are waterproof! Wore them on a stream trail, and was able to walk straight through (shallow) streams without wet socks! They're beautiful-- you can even wear them around with leggings for fashion. Highly recommend.

I bought my regular running shoe size and a size up. I'm keeping the bigger one so my toes don't hit the end of the shoe when I go downhill. They are comfortable for me right out of the box. I haven't worn them hiking or running yet, but the sole seems like it will be grippy so I won't have to worry about slipping on wet or muddy ground. The toe box is roomy enough but not such that my foot moves around too much. I like some support in a trail shoe and these have it. Cushioning is great.

La Sportiva makes a great product. These look even better in person than in photos. They have a sticky sole but still feel like the rubber will last a while. The toe box shape is more of a true approach/light climbing shoe but without the toe box feeling cramped. The tread is quite aggressive and could definitely be used for more rugged terrain (unloaded). Also the design is mellow enough that they can be worn as casual shoes with a pair of jeans if you are so inclined.
