La Sportiva Wildcat 2.0 GTX Shoe -

Put on a pair of The La Sportiva Wildcat and you'll be instantly transformed into a cat-person. Not like the crazy cat lady who just really likes cats kind of cat person, but like a person with all of the great qualities of a cat. A Wildcat, even. Like nimbleness, stealth powers, and total emotional detachment. The FriXion X-axis rubber outsole not only gives you awesome traction on all kinds of terrain, but also the added cushion to have confidence in every footfall. With its single density midsole and neutral platform, you'll stay balanced and stable no matter what the trail throws at you. If Marty Stauffer were still making movies about wildcats, this is definitely the shoe he would wear.

La Sportiva Wildcat 2.0 GTX Shoe Reviews:


So far, so good.

These shoes feel very light weight. I have noticed the traction is pretty good even in snow/ice conditions. They will slip a little bit in slushy ice and black ice, but I have yet to use a rubber soled shoe that doesn't. So far the Gore-tex has kept my feet dry. I alternate between using the insoles with thinner socks and not using the insoles with thicker, wool socks. I have wide feet and normally wear size EE. My big toes just very slightly push over the edge of the toe box, but so slightly that I just had to give these shoes a go. Given that, they accommodate my wide feet surprisingly well. I am worried they will wear out quicker than previous trail-runners I have purchased because they are so light, but we'll see. Enjoying them greatly right now!

excellent for muddy & wet trails

I used these half of last winter, and they held up great. Despite the high grip tread pattern, it has barely worn down (I estimate I put over 200 miles on them). Note that I only run with these on trails during the winter, not roads. Might wear faster if I ran roads of dry, hard packed trail, but the point of getting these is to wear them in wet weather.) I also took them to Tahoe a couple of times as my shoes to walk around when out of ski or snowboarding boots. I don't really mind getting my feet wet, but not if I am running for more than a couple of hours, and it's nice to not have to rinse out my socks a gazillion times to get the mud out of them.

Great backpacking shoe!

I used to be a diehard Solomon fan but their latest shoes just did not fit right. Figured I'd spring for a lased shoe this time around. Not disappointed. Living in the Pacific Northwest I need a waterproof shoe for just about every hike I'm on. These are perfect. Lightweight, grippy sole and waterproof all the way up to the top of the shoe. Filling water bottles from the lakes, walking in marshy lands or crossing the occasional river, my last worry is getting my feet wet. These shoes are very lightweight and make hiking a breeze. They are sized just about where I'd expect them to be. Slipped in a custom insole and took off. No blisters, even right out of the box.

after 4 years still going strong

bought these from REI when they were first introduced In 2010. I have the older colors blue and grey but still holding up. I wear them mainly to the gym and around town as they got quite comfortable like slippers. It took about 3 weeks to break them in. They are gore tex so if you step in a puddle your sock won't get wet but your Nike's will! I get complements on the style of them, and the traction is good for trail running, lightweight in the summer. I wear them year round, tread is still holding up after everyday use! Laces are good too!

Great trail running shoes

I purchased these shoes, as I use trail runners for both day hikes and multi-day backpack trips in the Sierra's. Just got back from a three-day trip along the Whitney trail using these shoes. They are quite comfortable and offer the needed support when carrying a 45 pound backpack. Whitney has lots of granite and uneven areas to walk over, and the shoes gave great traction, even through the snow. I will be purchasing another pair of these shoes for a walking tour of Sicily that I will be doing this fall with my wife.
