        Comments about Wildcat Trail Running Shoe - Men's:

        This is the 2nd pair of Wildcats that I purchased. I bought the first pair for section hiking the AT in October. I love the shoe so much that I kept wearing them after my 70 mile hike. Not wanting to wear them out before my next hike I bought another pair of Wildcats. One is for daily wear the other for the trail. I by them 1 size bigger than normal to compensate for any swelling that might occur during hiking. I wear then with Superfeet for added support. Since the Wildcats do not have Gortex they try fairly quickly. The sole grips well and there is an impact plate at the midsole that comes in handy when rock hopping. I haven't put on enough miles to comment on durability. I recommend the Wildcat.

        Just bought my second pair - the first pair became my go-to shoe for urban and nature adventures, including hiking trips in Vietnam and Ecuador. Great shoe for day hikes, trail runs, scrambling.

        Comments about Wildcat Trail Running Shoe - Men's:

        I love the shoes so far. I switched from another trail runner to these because the other shoes were aggravating my pre-existing plantar fasciitis problems.

        So far I have only taken these shoes on one backpacking trip.
        I took them to the grand canyon and linked tanner to the escalante route to grandview (about 35 miles). The shoes made the trip much more enjoyable and provided great traction on what many consider a seriously exposed and 'dangerous' route.

        They also allowed me to comfortably complete the trip in 2.5 days. Something I would not be able to do in a pair of heavy boots.

        My only concern is that they might be wearing faster than expected.

        TL;DR:
        The shoes are light but strong enough for backpacking in varied conditions. Might be wearing fast.

        FITTING YOUR ROCK SHOES

        Did Mallory and Irvine really reach the summit way back when? Who has the best kung fu? What is up with these Pokémon things? These are questions with easier answers than that of how to size your rock shoes. The V15-climbing gym rat will tell you that if your toes feel anything but searing pain, the shoes are too big. But what does he know — he's probably only 12 years old anyway. The veteran trad will insist that you need to leave room for three pairs of wool socks. Should you completely trust someone who might suffer from altitude-induced brain damage?

        While it isn’t a black or white issue, a general rule dictates that soft shoes require a tighter fit, two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. A thick midsole creates a platform on which you stand, while a slip-lasted slipper-type shoe relies on your crammed toes to create an edging platform.

        Once you determine your needs, try on several boots in that genre. Different last types fit different feet -- that's why we make lots of lasts. If it feels good, it probably is. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes -- about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe.

        La Sportiva's diverse last families have been specifically designed to conform to the widest possible range of both foot shape and climbing use. We constantly strive to revolutionize climbing shoe development and to provide every individual absolute freedom of choice in finding a shoe that is perfect for both their foot AND their climbing style.

        SIZING YOUR HIKING/BACKPACKING & MOUNTAIN BOOTS

        And you thought buying a new car was tough... Getting the perfect fit in a pair of hiking boots is rarely as simple as relaying your size. Most good boot fitters will measure your foot on a Brannock device. Overall length is actually a minor element of boot fitting. In the ideal world, our left foot would be a mirror image of our right, while the ball of our foot would line up exactly with the last-makers idea of the perfect foot. This is almost never the case because other factors such as heel to ball length, volume, and width are critical in gaining a perfect fit. A good salesperson will address each of these issues.

        To use our size chart to fit mountain boots, find your American size then go across to your European size, and then add one half size. When trying on boots make sure to bring the socks you would normally wear and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use. Another note: our shoes are handmade, and you can experience minor variations in sizing from pair to pair in a given size. What you’re looking for is the size that 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. To check the length, you should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. The fit across the top of your arch is the single most important factor. If the lacing system here does not hold your foot in place, the boot will not be stable on your foot while you walk. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking down hill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters. Be patient, ask questions and make sure you’ve got the right size and the right fit and the right boot before you hit the trail.
