Comments about LA SPORTIVA Men's Ultra Raptor Trail Running Shoes, Black/Yellow:

This is my second pair. I got 250 miles from the first pair hiking southbound along the Appalachian Trail in Maine and all of NH. I was section hiking so I wasn't too disappointed with the short lifespan from these shoes.
The tread is very aggressive and the rubber is sticky. The downside to the rubber slivers on the sole is that they tear off pretty easily.
The reason I said they wore out is because one of the fabric lace loops wore through. I wish they used metal grommets because it would be pretty hard to repair the tiny piece of torn fabric. I noticed significant wear on other lace loops.
These shoes have a disposable feel (typical of sneakers) to them which also makes them light and makes you fast on the trail. It's a trade-off versus more rugged, heavier hiking footwear.
I added Superfeet insoles to these shoes for even better support. Combined with hiking poles, I had no foot or knee discomfort.
With a 30 pound pack on my 170 frame, these shoes were the most comfortable I've used on a week-long hike.
Having used only boots previously, I felt empowered splashing across streams without worrying about waterlogged boots. These shoes will actually dry and they aren't as hot as boots, which tend to get wet from sweat even if you manage to rock-hop your way across the water.
I don't miss the feeling of waking up in the morning and sliding on cold, wet boots!

    This may be the best hiking shoe I have ever owned--- period.
    I have worn them to climb ten mountains so far this summer and they really are perfect.
    Many thanks to the knowledgeable young man in your North Conway, NH EMS store for recommending them!
