Product description
This model is ideal for use on hard and rocky terrain and is equipped with a climbing zone at the toe for use on first grade rock.  It has a shock absorbing heel to soften any impact with hard ground.  Technical features such as the asymmetrical lacing system have been extended to the toe.  The vintage look and the construction of the heel in rubber recall the traditional La Sportiva climbing shoes of the 80s, further enhanced by the use of the original 80s label “climbing on the moon”.Shoe volumes are wide for maximum comfort, and the use of the Ortholite footbed allows the shoe to be worn for many hours. The FriXion XF outsole is ultra sticky and provides an even greater hold on more technical passages. A vintage look, technical yet urban:  this is the new interpretation of approach by La Sportiva.

The worst pair of LaSportiva's I have ever bo

I have had many pairs of LaSportiva's over the years - from rigid mountaineering boots to approach shoes. All have fitted perfectly in 43.5.

These are 43.5 and seem to fit fine. However, walking any distance in them causes the heel to grab and cause a blister. It seems to start after only a few hundred metres, so they are really only of use for around the house or in the office. Even breaking them in slowly (something you shouldn't need to do with modern shoes/boots) or wearing blister plasters is no use.

Despite having barely used them as they are so uncomfortable, the liner at the heel has already started to wear away.

Looking at the shoe in more detail, it is very light and offers pretty much no support. The fit is snug and would be good for easy climbing, but these seem to be more of an urban hangout shoe.

I've had 2 pairs of LaSportiva Boulder X in the past, and would buy another pair. The Mix I will avoid.

Good value 3 season do most stuff shoes

I've used these for a 3 day hike in autumn and a rough wet week in Wester Ross.

They are light but sturdy so good for 75% of conditions from sunny hikes to rocky scrambles - excepting real mountain snows (need boots) or total muddy bog (need wellies).

So the sort of easy comfortable shoes you might use for most trips when trainers are too flimsy. The first thing I reach for...

They were good value at the discount given.

Sofort wieder!

Der schuh begleitet mich mittlerweile nun schon ein Jahr. Auch wenn wir anfangs unsere Differenzen hatten (hat nach ein paar hundert Metern schon angefangen gegen die Ferse zu drücken und zu reiben) hat es zu einer glücklichen Beziehung geführt. Nach ein zwei Wochen hatte sich meine Ferse an den festen Schuh gewöhnt (War bis dato leger gebundene Converse gewöhnt) und wir konnten unsere Abenteuer starten. Seitdem trage ich den Schuh täglich mehrere Stunden zu jeder x-beliebigen Aktivität. Sei es langes stehen im Labor, Trips durch die Stadt, Erdkunden neuer Trekkingwege und steinerner Gipferl oder Klettersteig gehen.
Durch den guten Halt des Schuhs und der Sohle ist stehen auf glatten Steinen und glitschigen Wurzeln kein Problem und er hat mich schon vor so manchem Maleur mit meinen lädierten Bändern bewahrt.
Mittlerweile ist jedoch schon ein Schnürsenkel gerissen und das Leder an der Ferse abgewetzt. Trotz allem ist er weiter in Gebrauch und angenehmer zu tragen denn je.
Sollte er jedoch wirklich irgendwann in die ewigen Jagdgründe übergleiten wird sein Nachfolger wieder ein LaSportiva sein.
