      Comments about La Sportiva Fireblade Trail Running Shoe (Men's):

      I'm on my second pair of Fireblades and am very pleased. Low profile, wide forefoot, narrow and low heel, excellent rubber, durable, breathable..I could go on & on.
      I use these for UL backpacking (sub-10 lb baseweight), trail running, dayhikes and general use. Great trainers!

      Pure Trail shoes, not too use on the pavement. Do a great job with a very good traction despite the apparently small grips. Confortable and light weight. Very satisfied. Fit particularly well narrow feets.

        Comments about La Sportiva Fireblade Trail Running Shoe (Men's):

        On technical trail it's really important to have a responsive shoe (unless you enjoy face plants on jagged rocks). Besides helping to keep you off your face, a stiffer, lower profile shoe like the Fireblade, helps you run more efficiently, as you spend less time wobbling back and forth with a wide-legged gait. The minimalist tread seems to give enough traction and helps to really feel the trail, since it doesn't mess with the ankle's proprioception like many higher profile shoes. The first time I put on the shoe I felt that it begged to be run aggressively, but I was worried that the stiff sole and light weight might pound my body over the course of 50 or 100 miles. My fears were alleviated as my legs and feet still felt nimble 7 hours into a difficult 50 mile race and my recovery was very short as compared to past years. One improvement I could suggest is changing the lacing system so that it creates less pressure points on the top of the foot. All in all, I think that the Fireblade is a great shoe for technical courses of any distance, such as the Zane Grey or StumpJump, but that it might be a little stiff for long courses with less technical trail and lots of hardpacked roads or pavement like Leadville.

          Comments about La Sportiva Fireblade Trail Running Shoe (Men's):

          I wore these on a 47-mile Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim run across the Grand Canyon. I love these shoes, and they're currently the only thing I'll run with. I didn't have any blisters or anything after my run.

          They are an ultralight shoe with little by way of support or cushioning (which is perfect for me- I weigh 130 pounds and am in shape). If you're looking for more support or if you're a beefier guy, don't buy these- there are plenty of more supportive shoes out there.

          The toe box has plenty of room to let my feet swell, so they were as comfortable on mile 47 as they were on the first mile (although I will admit to falling asleep intermittently and not really remembering too much of the last mile or so).
