The La Sportive Wildcat 2.0 GTX is very attractively design but runs about a size smaller and too narrow.

I really like the look and the sticky-aggressive sole on these boots, but as one reviewer mentioned, the toe box especially near the ball of the foot is much narrower than expected. I had to return these because of this. I ordered a size 13 and they felt like a "narrower-than-D-width" size 12 while using my normal mid-weight wool socks. Total bummer man!

I usually wear a size 5, but got a 5.5 because that was the size that was available. I'm glad I did! The 5.5 fit well (5 would've been way too small). I might've been able to go up to a 6, but I was going on vacation and didn't have time to order another pair. These worked out great, though. I spent 5 days hiking the mountains of Colorado and didn't get a single blister and had no hot spots! There was no break-in time needed; they were comfy out of the box. The best part is how grippy the sole was. I felt secure going over rocks/trees/etc. Would definitely get another pair of La Sportiva!

These were recommended to me by running friends, so I got them while they were on sale. Definitely narrow and had to go with a half size larger than I normally wear. I have to wait for the snow to fall in a few months before I can really test them out, but they felt ok wearing them around the house.

I have bought maybe 10 pairs, if not more, of this shoe for my boss from different companies because he loves them so much and is afraid they will be discontinued, but when he received the shoes from your company, he said they looked used (the tag was torn off and just thrown in the box with the shoes). This is why we are returning them.

I believe these are awesome trail running shoes, but they did not work for me. I'm writing this review to help others figure out if the shoe will work before it’s too late. I was replacing my Sportiva Wildcats, which have served me pretty well, but rubbed in the heels so much that I always had to tape up before wearing. I wanted to dispense with this. The Bushidos seemed like the perfect replacement, and felt great in the store and around the house, but once I started up the trail they tore my heels to pieces. I was able to mitigate this by taping up and by removing my aftermarket insoles (using the shoes with nothing inside). But the cruel irony is that they were much worse in the heel department than the shoes they replaced. Over the course of this ill-fated hike, I learned that in every other way the shoes rocked. They fit my forefoot and midfoot like a glove … snug and controlled, but soft. They have decent arch support. They are low-slung and exceptionally stable and precise. And the outsole grabs aggressively both on smooth rock and on loose dusty gravelly choss. And they’re light! What’s not to love? Besides the huge welts on my heels? I tried really hard to fix the heel issue. I tried the original thin insoles, a thinner version of my Sole insoles, extremely thin socks, mutliple lacing arrangements, and finally, another pair of Bushidos sized up a size. Nothing fixed it entirely. I figured out that a big part of the problem is a low heel pocket. If this fits your heel, it’s evidently great. If it doesn’t, look out. What’s insidious is that if you’re taking the kinds of small strides that you probably take when walking around the house or the store, you may not notice this. I recommend taking to the gym, and giving them a workout at many speeds and inclines on the treadmill. You’ll keep the shoes in new condition so they’ll be returnable, and you’ll really figure out if they work for you.

The shoes were true to sizing (I'm an 8M), comfortable, and felt like they would provide great support. They were light and flexible with adequate arch support, but I was looking for a softer inner sole--- something on the order of Sketchers memory foam. So, unfortunately, I had to return this pair, but would honestly recommend this shoe for most people.

Owned these shoes for 6 months now and I’ve got compliments on how they look! Wore them today in the pouring rain and came home with dry socks after 27 holes on the golf course! Took a week to break them in.

I ordered these boots after wearing the Synthesis for a few years. The Synthesis didn't have a good sole for rockier hikes so I stepped up to these. I just got back from a 10 mile hike and they did great! The gortex held up in river crossings, they gripped as well as my companion's shoes (also new Sportivias), I had absolutely not hot spots or blisters forming, and not once did I have to adjust my laces! My feet are sore from the rocks, but to be fair I think you will be sore no matter what after walking on first size rocks 2+ hours. I can say my feet are nowhere as beat up as they were in my other boots and the top of my foot was much better protected. Without going upgrading to a full boot I think these did their job. I will likely try out an insert as the arch support/cushioning wasn't as good as I like. I sized up .5 size from my typical shoe size as I thought my actual size was a tad narrow in the toebox (EX: 39.5 in other Sportivias (8) and got a 40 in these). WARNING - the light color will get dirty. Overall great shoe!

Was wanting a more rugged shoe for light off-road use in potential wet areas, but wasn't wanting a heavy hiking shoe. These fit the bill perfectly. Only been using them for two weeks, but so far I really like them. We'll see how they hold up. Definitely listen to the reviews about sizing up with this shoe. I have a narrow foot and usually wear a 9-9.5. Tried a 9 in this and didn't stand a chance in it. A 9.5 was better, but still too tight. Got the 10 and it fits perfectly. I'm not sure I've ever worn a size 10, but definitely needed it with this shoe.

I really like the look of this shoe, and would have kept it if I hadn't tried the La Sportiva Nucleo as well. I really wanted a hiking shoe that was more cushioned than the Merrell Moabs I have been using for years, especially under the ball of my foot, which I think may be more wimpy than most people's. This shoe is definitely more cushioned, it looks great, but the Nucleo was even more cushioned than this one, so that's the shoe I went with. Almost kept this one too, because it's pretty darn comfy, but I would have added some cushy inserts of my own anyway and don't need to do that at all with the Nucleo.

I really really liked these shoes, but they were just a little too narrow for my wide feet at the back half of the toe box. So sad. They're comfy and good looking. Wish they came in a wide.

Really cute and comfy. You can run in them, walk, and they are nice enough to wear with jeans for a casual, yet elegant look. The quality is excellent, with great support for your feet.

These are excellent hiking and walking shoes. I walked through streams in Montana, and my feet stayed dry. They are stylish enough to wear around the city too— I will order another pair. In love with these shoes!

Love the way these look and feel but I needed to order a half size up from my regular shoes. Fit more like my running shoes which are always a half size up.

I bought them for my trail training for spartan and they are great except that they run small. I should have bought at least half a size bigger. I like that they are light and the grip is really nice. I think if I would have gotten the proper size I would have loved them, but I noticed how bad it was when I was breaking them in, so I couldn't return them or exchange them.
