Catherine Greenwaldwrote a review of La Sportiva Ultra Raptor Trail Running Shoe - Women's on December 9, 2016
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
These run way smaller than expected -- usually size 9 is a bit on the large size (I'm pretty squarely between 8.5 and 9) so it seemed like going with a 40.5 would be a safe bet. Nope! Toes were crowded both on the sides and touching up front. Admittedly, I have a fairly wide forefoot, but was somehow expecting these to be wider. Otherwise, though, they felt pretty good -- supportive and firm, like they'd be great for high-mileage types.
