Product description

If they were only allow one climbing shoe for all endeavors, then we're sure that several sport, alpine climbers and boulderers would make the Katana from La Sportiva their first choice. Simply put, it's a total all rounder, leading the pack in every event. Looking for a versatile shoe? Don't fancy splashing out on specialist footwear for bouldering, sport climbing and alpine rock climbing respectively? Then Katana is the one for you. It provides enough edge stability for narrow ledges and good grip on slippery surfaces. Rocks or indoors - the Katana can do both!
The gist: with the La Sportiva Katana you'll get a climbing shoe with a 4 mm thick Vibram EDGE rubber sole. A blend of Lorica and natural leather is used for the outer layer. The synthetic fabric won't stretch out of shape, offering a long-lasting fit, whilst the natural leather is kinder on the skin and ensures a more hygienic environment for the feet. The two pull on loops on the heel make the shoes much easier to put on, and can be threaded onto a carabiner - so you can carry your Katanas on your backpack or climbing harness.
The design of the hook-and-loop closures is another clever detail. The wide hook and loop pads allow the closures to be fit around the foot well. The hook-and-loop closures make the shoe quick and easy to get on and off between boulder attempts or at the bottom of a route. A true multitasker with a legendary design - it's no surprise that the Katana is a firm favorite amongst climbers.

Note: as the La Sportiva Katana comes up relatively large, it is recommended that you order the shoe one size smaller than usual to ensure comfort. Most users buy the shoe about two sizes smaller. If you're look to do very athletic touring, you might want to buy the Katana up to three sizes small.
