Product Description

La Sportiva added the P3® technology to one of our most successful climbing shoes to produce a veritable edging machine! This is the first tubular construction climbing shoe that gives you the performance of a lined shoe with the comfort of an unlined shoe. Coupled with the new Vibram® XS Edge™ compound, this powerful, slightly asymmetric, slightly downtuned all around shoe excels in every type of climbing scenario.

Vibram® XS Edge
The best possible rubber formula for technical edging. XS Edge was developed specifically for La Sportiva and the production of the TC Pro climbing shoe. This rubber compound is exceptionally resistant to deformation on razor sharp edges and it will not creep when smearing.

    After trying several different types/brands of climbing shoes, I decided to give the Katana lace a try. It has a very comfortable fit for a lace shoe and locks in great. Once the shoe is broken in, the smearing is no problem. Edging with this shoe is amazing. There is enough rubber on the sole that when you stick your foot down, there is no doubt that you aren't going anywhere. I am sold on this shoe and don't plan on venturing to a different type/brand anytime soon.

    This is the second pair of Katana lace I own.
    I wanted a more "aggressive" shoe that still fits like a beginner shoe comfort wise. this is it.
    It has a narrow fit, which is perfect for my foot.
    The "turn-down" angle is pretty good and lasts for a while thanks to some nice technology La Sportiva put in there.
    the tip is pretty pointy which allows you to fit in small pockets or cracks.

    The laces are a bit less comfortable than Velcro for quick on/off action and the heel is a bit lose but that's probably due to the shape of my foot. These are pretty much the only cons I have for this shoe, highly recommended.

    Highly recommend it. Sportiva makes great shoes and this is great all around for all types of climbing. The slight downturn is great for bouldering and overhangs on sport, edging is like a dream, toe box is made shallow enough for crack climbing. Solid all around shoe.

    I was fit for this shoe prior to ordering it online so I knew the exact size to get which I recommend doing prior to ordering. Overall it's a great shoe, good quality, quick lace setup with a comfortable tongue. Definitely satisfied!
