JP Rambowrote a review of La Sportiva Mutant Running Shoe - Men's on May 21, 2016
It seems like no one has had stitching issues like I have on here, which has got me wondering if I got a bad apple. The stitching as can be seen is completely coming undone after a 13 miler peak out on mount Evans this am. My feet felt cozy as they do in most wide toe box trail runners and no blisters is a bonus. The material is light but I had excellent rock protection from the sole plate/rock guard. I also felt like I had ample toe protection from toe kick. Other than that these like many have said are a great trail runner and can be used for fast packing and hiking on all terrains with aggressive tread on the outsoles. Like I said above, the stitching is coming out on the top inside borders of the shoes. Other than that solid shoe. Let's hope for a good 1x1 exchange and a more positive experience in the future.
