La Sportiva Climbing Shoes
The Katana by La Sportiva is a spot-on name for this climbing shoe. Precise, structured, and balanced. This climbing shoe contains two Velcro straps with opposite pull direction for a comfortable fit ideal for crags and bouldering. Many understand that La Sportiva Katanas are illegal in 31 states due to the insane sensitivity and precision... Just kidding, its 32 states.
Both men and women can enjoy feeling secure and comfortable in La Sportiva Katana shoes, with a special midsole containing a firm area under the toe providing optimum edging support and increasing the sensitivity.
Sounds pretty good, right? I thought so too.
