Good bye tired, sore, and aching feet
Purchased my first pair of Ultra Raptor in June 2016. Put approximately 125 miles of trial hiking and backing on them. I am not a runner. They were the answer to years of tired feet, crunched toes, and hot spots. They perform great with a backpack from 2lbs to 35lbs. After a 50 mile Sierra hike my wife was convinced and made the switch from a traditional hiking boot to the women's Ultra Raptor and swears she will never go back. I did have an eyelet rip, but was lucky enough to have purchased through a highly reputable company that exchanged them with a new pair. I feel the rip was partly my fault for not properly tightening the laces. About the laces, they are awesome. I was so tired of my old boots coming untied. Not with La Sportiva laces. They are the best. Overall the shoe offers comfort, protection, traction and durability on and off the trail.

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR
I ran the 106Km VFT in Paranesti Greece and was totally pleased with the shoes. I had a second pair waiting in 60th Km. to change, but I decided to continue in my Raptors. They offered a perfect grip where needed and protected my toes. I had no blisters and no black toes. Very comfy too. However i felt i had a weak ankle support but that could be due to only wearing them very few times before the race.

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR
I reluctantly bought a pair of Ultra Raptors 4 days before my first 50k trail race because my other shoes tore apart. The Raptors have been incredible on and off the trail. I am currently looking for my second pair after about 450 miles on the first pair! Great shoe!

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR
I am currently on my third pair of Ultra Raptors and quite frankly nothing compares to these shoes for trail running. I average 200 miles per season through some of New England's toughest and most technical terrain, and these shoes give me the traction and confidence required for super difficult trail running. During several very technical trail races over wet and slippery rocks, I found other runners slipping and falling as I ran past them with total confidence. I absolutely love these trail runners and will keep buying them as long as LaSportiva makes them!!

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR
Finished a 10-mile road race (paved roads, no trails) in this shoe and plan on wearing it for future road races. This shoe gives me faster times than my New Balance, which are also great. However, the Ultra Raptor provides better overall support, cushioning, and traction - even for paved roads!
