Review for ULTRA RAPTOR WOMEN'S
I adore La Sportiva. Honestly the only shoe in which these quasi runner's feet are happy. I tried Brooks and felt they were too squishy. I found another shoe at Big Peach and bought it but ending up returning the shoes after a couple of weeks. Just felt off and created some pain in the shins. It was like it threw my cadence and stride off. I have a second pair of shoes I keep in the car in case of emergencies, like a pick up run. They are Solomon's Masochists. I like them but really prefer La Sportiva. I mean I always try and grab them when I know it is a run day. I want to be like all the cool kids who are trying the shoes of the moment. Not sure what works for me with these or why. I know I like the rock guard and it fits higher up on the foot/ankle and so feel there is more stability. I have stubbed my toe while wearing the ultra raptors I got and stubbed it but hard. Toe comes out unscathed. Those darn roots! I re-adjust the fit and keep going. Toe doesnt get bruised. The tread on these gives an excellent grip and I feel secure when wet comes up, except for bridges and even then dont sweat it that much. Strikes a perfect balance for me.

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR WOMEN'S
After trying on about 15 pairs of different brands, these were the most comfortable by far. I have narrow feet so these didn't come out until the third wave but I'm so glad we threw caution to the wind and tried them anyway! Lacing is snug, good stable platform and the drop that I was looking for. No need for the usual innersole to take up slack. And did I mention comfort?

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR WOMEN'S
I love these shoes! They have the right amount of rigidity in the sole for trail running but also good cushion in the foot bed. Like a previous reviewer, I do not need to add or swap the insert. I like this shoe so much that I'm considering purchasing another pair that are exactly the same for when my current pair wears out.

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR WOMEN'S
Great shoes! I have narrow, slightly flat feet, I over pronate...AND have bunions (ouch!) so it's tough to find a shoe that works well with all three of my "traits". These fit the bill on every aspect. Excellent technical trail running and long distance hiking shoe. Never any discomfort even after a 12 mile, mountain hike/jog. La Sportiva is now my favorite!

Review for ULTRA RAPTOR WOMEN'S
This is the best All Terrain shoe that I've bought since 1994. It is comfortable out of the box. The ultra sticky rubber outsole gives me the best traction on all terrains - wet rock, wet tree roots, mud, ice and steep snow covered terrain. I have never had a blister. The toe guard does it job. It's hard to explain but my foot can start to roll and the shoe adjusts and keeps me stable. It's remarkable. It breathes and dries quickly. I have small feet but one foot is just a bit bigger than the other. The quarter sizes finally solved that problem. The half sizes always leave one foot sloshy and the other tight. The quarter size is perfect for my not so perfect feet. This she is also excellent for my high arches. Please do not change this shoe. I use it to end all of my Vlogs on YouTube. I use a summer shot and a winter shot. Thank you La Sportiva!
