Wildcat Trail Running Shoe

The Women’s Wildcat Trail Running Shoe includes the same super-sticky FriXion rubber that you find on La Sportiva’s climbing shoes, so you know it’ll stay put on the slick stuff. La Sportiva also added aggressive lugs for increased traction on loose surfaces and an AirMesh upper for breatability on days when the trail is hot, hard, and dusty.

  • Trail shoes for conquering rough and rugged terrain
  • Durable mesh cage provides a secure, stable fit
  • Plenty of cushioning for rocky, technical trails
  • Super grip on outsole ready to conquer slick rock

Great for "low-volume" feet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I love these. They fit much more comfortably than most shoes and the arch isn't painful for my almost-flat feet.
One thing that's really important to know is that they run extremely small, and I do mean *extremely*. My normal street shoe size is a pretty solid 8, but 41.5 in these was too short. I sized up to a 42 because that was the largest size they had. They fit well, but if I went on a really long hike I think I would probably need to size up even more. I actually ordered mine from REI, but I see they have the next size up here.

I love it

    fits exactly how you would expect it to. I get extra discount from here:


    Best light weight, stability trail shoes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have purchased at least four pairs of La Sportiva’s Wildcat trail shoe, after not being able to find a shoe that offered the same comfort, support and ventilation. I have used these for long distance trail runs and hikes. Going to keep buying them. La Sportiva, do not change these! Except for prettier colors! ;)

    Comfortable fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are some of the most comfortable trail shoes I have purchased. They have the perfect amount of support for my high arches and tendency to over pronate.

    No breaking in required!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Love these right out of the box. I wore them on a long hike yesterday and they are super comfortable. This shoe runs true to size. I’m a 7.5 in Nike and purchased the 38.5 and they fit perfectly.

    Best trail shoes!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After not being able to find comfortable, light, stability trail shoes for distance trail running, I tried these. Awesome, comfortable, light, supportive and durable! Please do not change the design

      Where have you been all my life?

        Waterproof, great traction, sturdy and perfect fit. Makes me feel like the mountain goat I was born to be.

        Défi not waterproof !

        Great Shoe

          Bought a size 41 ---I wear a 9 1/2 in womens US. fit perfect

          Awesome Shoes

            I bought these as a gift and she loves them. Fit is true to size and super comfortable. Soles are also super grippy.

            the BEST

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            used these for 600 miles on the AT. highly breathable (they dry quick!), durable, and comfortable. they felt broken in from the moment i got them. no hot spots or blisters. my feet are narrow with high arches and they supported them just fine! no need for other insoles. the tread is superrr grippy, always felt safe on any surface. i normally wear 7.5 and got size 39.5 which is perfect for hiking.

            Best Trail Running Shoes

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: 37

            These were a gift for my girlfriend and she has been so stoked on them. They have awesome grip for trail running and excellent cushion for longer runs. She says they run pretty true to size.

            Great, Lightweight., Grippy Shoe!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size

            I bought these for those early morning icy runs with the dog. He seems to think that I have traction like he does. I've worn them a couple times and I love them! They are grippy! Super comfy and fit great. I bought my normal size.

            So pleased!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: Runs large
            • Size Bought: 36

            This is my 1st pair of wildcats. I seriously have never worn a shoe so comfortable. No rubbing, no blisters from the moment I put them on. I'm a size 6 shoe, but I decided to order a 36.5 due to reviews of them fitting slightly large. They fit like a glove with my running socks. I can't speak about their durability yet as I have only worn them for about 4 runs. They are so light and I got compliments about how cute they are @ the gym. Well worth the $$. My other running shoes are collecting dust!

            Hiking shoes

            • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
            • Fit: Runs large
            • Size Bought: 39

            Love this shoe! Great arch support. Took it on a four day backpacking trip, 51 miles in the Sierras and no blisters. Im queen of blisters so this is a good thing. They ran a bit big, originally I bought the next size up and too large. Even with these I wore liners and socks. Im glad I finally found a hiking shoe that fits my skinny,boney feet and feels good.

            Awesome shoe!

              I myself have had several pairs of Wildcats and love them. Just got a pair for my wife and she has nothing but great things to say. The shoes are really light and breath phenomenally well. Traction is best in class. This may be her fist pair but it won't be her last. She is a 6 and the 37 fits great. Only taking away one star due to durability. They seem to burn out pretty quick but then again weight and breath ability come at a price.

              Happy toes on mellow days.

              • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
              • Fit: True to size

              My sister loves how comfy these shoes are at the gym, walking down the street, and at light hikes, but she kind of wishes they were more durable for heavier activities. For example, she went on a rocky hike and stepped in some puddles, and at the end her feet were sore and damp. Great for light activities though!

              these are my jam!

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
              • Fit: True to size

              I am normally a size 7 and ordered a 37, they fit me perfect! These are probably my favorite pair of running kicks ever. I've used these all over the place and they never fail to deliver. I use these at the gym, trail running, light hiking, taking my dog for a run around the park. They really are a do it all. I love how breathable they are in the upper material. Great for those warmer temps but still not too breathable when it cools off. They are super durable as well.

              La Sportiva Wildcat Trail Running Shoe

                Love em!

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                I wear these almost daily to work and have a separate pair to run in. Nice traction and a wider toe box make it the perfect shoe for some trail running. They have a stable heel that is nice if you are wearing them at work, like I do. I typically wear an 8.5 and I ordered a sz 40 in these.
