Not very deep in heel. Could not use orthotics so am returning.

I ordered these in my normal size, and they were just a tad too small. Ordered 1/2 size up and they're perfect. We and played 36 holes of disc golf on first day of wearing these and they are awesone. Very comfy, good grip, and they look great.

I was looking for either a lightweight hiking shoe or a more serious trail runner for a 3 day trek on Vancouver Island, so I bought 12 different styles of Gore-Tex trail runners and light hikers to evaluate. I have la sportiva 4-season mountain boots, so I was really excited to try these...until I realized that I had a brain-fart and bought these non-Gore-Tex shoes! They are really comfy with a great sole, just like you'd expect from la sportiva. It's a stabilizing shoe, so they move and flex a little less than I would like in a trail runner (I wear adidas outdoor adizeros or the new balance minimus trail shoe here in florida), but I think for mountain running on slippery or loose surface they would be great. I have narrow feet though, so I still prefer the adidas outdoor line, which does run on the narrow side.

I was looking for either a lightweight hiking shoe or a more serious trail runner for a 3 day trek on Vancouver Island, so I bought 12 different styles of Gore-Tex trail runners and light hikers to evaluate. This is the pair that I ended up keeping. The Gore-Tex is breathable. The shoes have fantastic soles & traction, but are still relatively lightweight. If I want my ankle to be really mobile, I can loosen the top but still have protection from water all the way to my ankle. These can be tightened quite a bit to assist with stability when you want to really move quickly downhill with any kind of weight on your back. Hopefully the build quality is as good as it looks - I'll report back after my trek! I have a narrower foot and found these to be TTS - I'm a size 8 and kept the 8s.

These are TTS (I'm an 8 with a narrower foot, 8 fits perfectly). These are excellent shoes, lightweight, flexible, with a serious sole and serious traction. I liked these, but kept the la sportiva Core High GTX because I think the high tops will be better suited to our trek, but I would definitely consider this shoe if you're looking for a gore-tex mid or high top.

The shoes look cool and feel super comfortable, but the soles after two weeks of walking and running stared to wear out really badly. The same happened to my friend. I do not recommend this shoes.

Updating an earlier review - I have had no trouble with durability. I love these - have 2 pair in different colors and wear them often!

Great shoes! I love La Sportiva's, they are the only thing that fit my narrow feet. My only compliant is, I think theses rnu a little bit smaller than the other La Sportiva shoes I have run in, but not enough to exchange them.

The looks of this shoe - Very Cool, The quality of this shoe - very good, the fit of this shoe - horrible unless your foot is the size of a pencil! I gave this shoe 5 stars for style, 1 star for fit and overall 2 stars. After all, I didn't buy them to put on my mantle I bought them to run in. I ran about 1 mile and had to turn back for home because it felt like my feet were in a vice. I was running in my suburb and they hurt like hell, I cant imagine trying to run in the wilderness and thats what these shoes were designed for.

Fantastic shoes. I use them for work and casual wear. I am on my feet for ten hours at a time at work and I cover a lot of ground. These shoes are extremely comfortable and quite breathable. They also last much better than most other atheists shoes. Previously I would go through a pair of shoes every six months at the longest. These however have lasted 13 months and are just now starting to breakdown. Just for reference, I cover 8 to 10 miles a day in a 4 day workweek. Mine literally have hundreds of miles on them. I already have a backup pair I am going to put into service and I will buy another pair to wear casually.

$700+ for a boot?! Actually, it is worth the money. It is two boots- an inner quilted boot that is warm and can be custom fitted for comfort (and the thickness of socks you prefer) and an outer ski-boot like shell that also can be adjusted. It was a delight to find a boot that was warm, flexible, and wide enough for my feet- and much lighter than a ski boot.

Order 1/2 larger than your usual running shoe. Excellent cushion and breathability. Very supportive and stable. The middle of the shoe has a shank that provides lots of stability and arch support. Great style. Excellent for long runs. Super aggressive deep sole tread.

Buying a second pair because they are so comfortable and supportive! I have a narrow heel, wider forefoot, modest bunions, and a "low volume" foot over all - and my feet are in heaven in these. Really feel supported and ready for adventure. They fit a bit differently than some other la sportiva I tried on - in that they have more room or height in the toe area, so the top of the shoe does not press on the tops of the toes. Usually wear a 7 1/2 in shoes, and 8 or 8 1/2 in athletic shoes, and the size 8 or 39 1/2 fit perfectly. I read some review on another site that they have a flaw that makes them start to fall apart in wet conditions. I plan to keep these as dry as possible and keep my fingers crossed - I am so happy with them otherwise!

Most comfortable approach shoe I've worn thus far, and I've burned through a lot of La Sportiva's in the past.

Love these boots! They are lightweight, support my ankles, and have plenty of room in the toebox. I normally wear a US size 9 wide so I bought the 10.5 size of these boots and they fit perfectly. Highly recommend!

Initial feel is like a hug for your foot. Looks way cooler than the images. Unfortunately the inside seams are very obtrusive. After 3 months of wearing these every other day they were comfortable for a couple hours, 4 months before I could tolerate them for more than 6 hours. The internal seams cut into the widest point of the outside of your foot. If you have narrow feet I highly recommend these shoes.

Great approach shoes! Get you up to a climb and also my choice for hiking. Perfect for a day hike and even backpacking unless you require ankle support. The style is super cute. The soles are durable. Highly recommend these.

I LOVE these boots. I've had them for about 5 months now, and I've probably hiked upwards of 100 miles in them over varying conditions (snow, ice, rocks, dirt and pavement!), in addition to "around town" wear. I am prone to blisters, but I haven't gotten a single one since I put these on the first day--they just fit so well. They're super light, they've taken a beating and still look like new, and the treads are holding up very nicely. I have a wide foot box and higher arch, and these fit nicely--not too snug, and very adjustable. I've owned a LOT of boots over the years; my favorite mid/high lightweight boot for the past few years has been the Salomon X Ultra series boots, but the Contragrip treads in those boots wears away too quickly: these boots are just as light, even more comfortable, more waterproof, and have Vibram soles that will last forever. I highly recommend buying these boots (and I'm buying a 2nd pair today, just in case they sell out)!

Just got them and they fit in length and width but the height is short so they're pretty tight across the top of the foot. Never had this issue with a shoe before. Will see if they break in after a day or so. If they didn't look so good, I'd return them instantly.

This is my forth pair of these. My only complaint is that you have to double tie the laces or they come untied easily.
