Summary

Excellent high-performance shoe. Very comfortable with a glove-like fit

Pros

  • Fit
  • Rubber

Cons

  • Price

I've used these shoes extensively outdoors for about 12 months. Although these aren't a shoe for every occasion, they are my go-to-shoe. The no-edge takes some getting used to, but now I like it. 

As for sizing, I don't know how I'm able to downsize so much more than others, but I wear these in a 40, and I'm SIZE 11.5 STREET! These shoes do stretch, but now they are perfect, and I can comfortably wear them standing without any pain. 

The Futuras are much easier to put on than the Solutions, which are very restrictive for a high-arch, high-volume foot like mine.

What can one write about the La Sportiva Futura? Cute; ''the Futura is here.'' Obvious; ''La Sportiva's latest rock shoe,the Futura, is aptly named.'' Abused metaphor; ''with the Futura, La Sportiva has hit another home run.'' That last one is really dumb, it is a rock shoe after all, not a cleated shoe. OK, just know this- 1) La Sportiva dominates the rock shoe world with the number of cutting edge designs, and 2) the Futura is their newest model. 'nuff said.
