As dawn crests over mountaintops, the sun illuminates a smooth and tacky single track trail that winds its way out of sight towards what you can only assume to be burly terrain. That’s okay though - you’re ready to attack the trails with confidence no matter what it leads to, thanks to La Sportiva’s Ultra Raptor shoe. It’s go time and you’re off exploring the terrain like a vicious bird of prey on the hunt. The Ultra Raptor is a top pick for endurance off-road runners looking for a diverse shoe that offers the absolute best combination of comfort and confidence. With its accommodating last, secure heel, and a leather lining for ease of fit, the Ultra Raptor is very comfortable and adaptable as your foot swells miles into your run. To add to that comfort, La Sportiva’s injected shock-absorbing EVA foam provides a great cushion for real rough trails. The super sticky Frixion XF White sole keeps you right side up, regardless of what you step on. Get out there and don’t come back until you’ve finished the hunt.

  • All-terrain shoe that can handle everything you throw at it.
  • La Sportiva’s super sticky Frixion XF 2.0 is purposely formulated to be long lasting and incredibly grippy, no matter the terrain.
  • Full-length rock guard prevents injury from stepping on sharp objects.
  • AirMesh uppers enable heat to escape while giving it your all.

*For proper fit, we suggest sizing up one half US size.

By far the best shoes I have ever used for rocky trails and scrambles. Whether you are out for a few hours or all day, these shoes have you covered. They grip like none other on rock, even when wet. They offer so much stability and foot protection while not losing too much sensitivity. I cannot recommend them enough.

Love these shoes. Ive been through a few pairs at this point. A little on the heavy side but super versatile for these days your not trying to fly down single track these things are the perfect shoe to throw in when you dont know what the conditions will be, maybe icy/snowy, maybe a day when your hiking, running and biking etc. always a great choice!

I’m on my third pair in three years. I have nerve damage and plantar faciatis, and I went through lots of shoes trying to accommodate the old injuries, while striking a balance of light weight and durability. Despite liking the zero drop shoes, none of them lasted very long and most didn’t have adequate protection on rocky trails, and also weren’t very good on occasional scrambles or off trail travel.
I decided to try Ultra Raptors based on recommendations from a friend. I’ve found them to be moderately wide, enough to work well with my nerve damage. The sole is plenty grippy, and the midsole has enough cushioning for my needs. They claim a full length rock plate, but the reality there so far as I can tell, is a very compressed layer of EVA in the midsole, not actual plastic. I’d prefer that they were a bit more protective and sacrifice a little trail feel, but if I watch my mileage closely they are adequate.
The uppers are also pretty good, with a fully gusseted tongue to reduce stuff getting in around the tongue. The mesh on the forefoot is the weak point, and I have begun to put a bit of liquid urethane like shoe goo on there to prevent blowouts.
I’d agree with the other reviewer that they’re good enough for fastpacking, peak bagging etc as well, and when they are too used for running, I use them for all those other things until they are fully worn out.
They may not be the lightest or newest design, but a great sturdy trail shoe!

I have had this shoe for a year now and have had really good life out of it. The out sole is grippy on all surfaces. The shoe has not collapsed or broken down at all. I have had other shoes where the foam breaks down or collapses and then the shoe ends up affecting my stride. The upper holds my foot very snug to keep it from sliding around on off camber terrain. The shoe also has a really nice toe bumper that has saved my toes a few times. Fit has been wider to accommodate my feet. Overall this shoe has been a great beefy running shoe that has doubled as a fast packing off trail shoe as well. Definitely would recommend!
