I have a pair of ultra raptor trail running shoes which are really comfortable, I am looking for a new pair of hiking boots and would like to know if the TX5 boot has a similar fit to the ultra raptors
The Ultra Raptor trail running shoes generally have a wider fit in the toe and forefoot sections and are a lightweight and versatile shoe. The TX5 has many similarities to the Ultra Raptor in regards to versatility and has a wide toebox, albeit not quite as wide as the width the Ultra Raptors offer. They are certainly comparable and as La Sportiva's are designed for comfort and versatility, however a more comparable model to the Ultra Raptor trail running shoes is the Ultra Raptor mid wide GTX - the hiking boot model of the Ultra Raptors. It is the direct equivalent but with all the qualities your looking for in a hiking boot.
