La Sportiva Katana Lace Climbing Shoe - Women's

Size Chart

Balancing Comfort with Performance

The La Sportiva Katana Lace Climbing Shoe is more aggressive than your typical trad shoe and comfier than your standard sport climbing shoe, making it ideal for both practices. If you need more oomph on a day-long multipitch’s crux pitch, or you’re enjoying a day at the crag, the Katana Lace’s comfortable asymmetry and moderate downturn provide a versatile performance for all-round climbers. P3 randing maintains the downturn and asymmetry for the shoe’s life. La Sportiva updated the heel with a narrower fit and a snug feel for bagless heel hooking. Underfoot, the shoe features a Vibram XS Edge rubber sole at the toe for durable friction, and the heel only has a rand around it for better flexibility and moderate support.
