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!

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!!

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!

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.
