    Best Uses

      Comments about LA SPORTIVA Men's Boulder X Hiking Shoes:

      Look at the picture. See how the lacing system works, with all the laces going through itself, and those two lacing lines running up and down through loops made of the soft supple gray leather the upper is made of? Yeah, well turns out those loops blow out. Big time. Great show otherwise, love the rubber toe cap and everything else. But when those soft little bits of leather wear down, like mine did in 2 weeks, you're out of luck and the shoes are rendered unusable. Go check it out in store. You'll see what I mean. Pass.

        Comments about LA SPORTIVA Men's Boulder X Hiking Shoes:

        Don't get drawn in by some flashy shoe that only looks good. These LaSportiva's will handle anything you throw at them and more. OK, maybe not climbing the cliff face, but getting there, wherever it is. Takes a little time to break in to your specific foot, but then you'll want nothing else.

          Just got back from hiking and climbing in the Caribbean, these were great shoes for day hikes. Stable, comfortable, grippy, and my feet didn't sweat like they had in other day hikers.

          These shoes have excellent support, stability, and performance in all the conditions I have found in the White Mountains of NH. One of the leather lace loops popped when tightening after just over a year of use (outside of warranty) I called up La Sportiva and they replaced them. Looking forward to another pair!
