The La Sportiva Ultra Raptor is made for all-day pursuits. Have you guys seen Jurassic Park? The raptors are more terrifying than the T-Rex and can run forever, so just image what an ULTRA raptor would be like. I know, right? Since it's built on a neutral platform with a sticky rubber outsole, this shoe provides an awesome base for long distance moving. The forefoot rock guard makes sure that you won't bruise your precious metatarsals and the deluxe heel pocket cushioning and reinforcement will for sure keep you cozy. This shoe is pretty much designed to make it feel like you're running on a perfectly flat surface, even if you are fleeing over the squalor of an island filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs.

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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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 Mountain Beast This shoe is a burly mountain beast. I'm on my second pair. I grab these when I head out to CO for mountain trail running, hiking, and because of the sticky climbing rubber La Sportiva uses on the outsole, climbing approach. It's not a minimalist shoe unless you use it as a light backpacking shoe (it's totally capable), however the protection is outstanding. Rock plate and rubber toecap are great for downhill trail bombing. I've motored these over rock, cactus, and post holed them through snow. When I'm running on easy trails I grab a lighter shoe but when I go to the mountains these shoes always go. Love 'em. Sizing is small. I had to size up two Euro Sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around trail runner ever! It's not an ultralight trail runner and its not a beefy hiking shoe. What is it? It's hands down the best trail runner ever made. No other tread pattern or material will grip better on rock, mud, scree, dirt, loose gravel and wet rocks/roots. I have been everywhere in these shoes and they have never let me down. I am now on my 5th pair.They have ample ankle support, protected toe box, great shanks for those sharp rocks, the ventilation is good, not great. Never any blisters under 12 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ultra shoe for ultras (or just running hours on trails) great improvement on the regular Raptor, which already had great traction and cushioning. reinforced upper (especially in the heal) prevents early upper deterioration. I've run several 50 and 100 miler trail races on one pair and still quite usable. love these shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prefer the La Sportiva Wildcat Bought these hoping to wear them on a 92 mile/7 day hike on the Ozark Trail. Took them on a 3 day shake down hike and decided to stick with the Wildcats; much more comfortable and less foot fatigue.
