LA SPORTIVA FIT GUIDE and INFO

La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

Please review La Sportiva's size conversion chart above to help determine your ideal size. Below you will find additional information about how to fit and break in the different styles of La Sportiva footwear, which will also help guide you to the correct size.

ROCK CLIMBING SHOES:
• As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.
• Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.
• Lined shoes stretch about a half size.

ROCK CLIMBING SHOE FIT SYSTEMS:
• PERFORMANCE FIT - offers a high performance fit and a downturned last.
• TECH FIT - a more technical fit and a last with neutral profile.
• COMFORT FIT - a comfortable fit and a last with more volume and a neutral profile.

HIKING, BACKPACKING and MOUNTAINEERING BOOTS:
• Find your US Size in the guide above, then find the Euro Size conversion and add one half size.
• The ideal size holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch.
• If you can try to boots on beforehand, make sure you wear the same size and weight socks you would typically wear with the boots, and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use.
• It is ideal to fit boots later in the day since feet are prone to swell slightly as a day progresses.
• Wear your boots indoors only until you are confident about the fit.
• Your foot should feel snug (not tight) from the arch back into the heel pocket with just a minimum lift as you walk. If your heel lifts make sure the lacing is snug and not too loose.
• Your toes should NOT touch the front of the boot, but when you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes.
• If your toes or sides of your feet feel squished, most likely the width is too narrow and the boot will not work for you.
• If your toes touch the front of the boot, most likely it is too short and you need the next half size up.
• Make sure to keep all original packaging that came with your boots until you are sure that you are happy with your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely comfortable light-weight hiker I used La Sportiva's top of the line heavy boot for years, and bought this light-weight hiker for the Gortex surround. These boots are clearly the same quality for which La Sportiva is famous, sized identical to their top of the line leather boot, the Gortex breathes exceptionally well through the mesh, and they are extremely comfortable. Do not expect the same support as a heavy-weight leather boot and you'll be extremely satisfied. Dealing with Moosejaw has ALWAYS been an absolute delight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The good, the bad, and the fugly I walked about ten miles today in the pouring rain, new / straight out da box. I noticed a difference between the boots I use to wear (Danner RAT GTX), and the Synthesis: the difference is the RAT (more comfortable) is Gore-Tex (ultra sweaty feet after a long wakl), and the Synthesis is this new Gore-Tex Surround (feet didn't sweat). I wear my footwear with Darn Tough socks. Honestly, I would have purchased another pair of RAT boots, but I think they are called RAT (really means Rugged All Terrain) because every time I need a new pair, I say, rats, they are out of stock at the factory in my size. So, I tried many many pairs of boots and shoes. The Synthesis has Ortholite, which I'm personally not fond of. I wish the lacing system was just a regular lacing system rather than a fancy one with a pull cord and a speed lace on one side of each shoe at the top. Unless you have kid feet, I don't think your laces will reach the elastic piece made to hold the laces in place near the toe box. If you want to replace the factory laces, you would have to cut the laces off. My foot is a 9.5, but like with Danners, I wear a 10 in the Synthesis. I wish they were a bit wider around the toe area. The toe box has decent room up and down. The gigantic La Sportiva text on the sides stands out. The Synthesis is decent, but the real selling point is the Gore-Tex Surround. It's da bomb.
