Nate Blouinwrote a review of La Sportiva Anakonda Trail Running Shoe - Men's on April 4, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
just got these out for the first time today... love 'em. nice and light, low to the ground feel, excellent grip on loose dirt, all sorts of rock and easily the best downhill feel i've ever experienced. similar shoes i've used and like are the keen a86 tr and the new balance MT110s, these are definitely more similar to the MT110 in terms of having a nice, stiff/hard sole for rock protection with light weight and low drop, but the downhill hold on these is superior. maybe slightly higher volume than i'd like, could have sized down a half, but i think true to size will work out too. the main thing i noticed right off the bat in these is a nice high arch. testing ground was mt. olympus here in SLC if you're familiar, very steep and rocky, just what these are built for. i'm going to get them on a more typical trail tomorrow.
