Gear Review: La Sportiva Ultra Raptor

The La Sportiva Ultra Raptor has been one of the most amazing hiking shoes I’ve ever worn from a performance standpoint. The combination of a grippy Frixion Green rubber outsole, and a cushy and protective La Sportiva midsole, make for the perfect combination. I’ve worn through two pair in the last two years, and now have a very intimate understanding of this shoe’s strong points and weak points. I’ve now had a chance to give the Ultra Raptor a test on a wide range of hiking trails, and am always amazed out how well they handle anything I can throw their way.
