Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Granite Slayer My preferred shoe for technical granite. Lace-ups provide a nice snug fit. It resoles better than the TC Pro. It maintains a mild downturn and some stiffness (even though a resole doesn't normally replace the whole sole). The narrow toe box performs well in finger cracks. The only drawbacks are poor heel hooking and no toe rubber for jamming/toe hooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe I bought these shoes for their reputation as a good edging shoe. I've tried Miuras, but they just don't fit my Fred Flintstone-shaped feet, and these do! I bought them in 35.5, which is the size I wear in TC Pros. (I fit my shoes tight), all of my other Sportivas are 35s. I am still breaking them in, but I think over time I might wish I got the 35s, but these will be great for long routes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I could want in a shoe Favorite shoe I have owned. I have a wide foot, so I was skeptical at first, I did not think they would fit as well as my TC pro's. I wanted a durable shoe for crack, but also a bit more edging power to push the grade a bit harder and stand on miniscule edges. Fits great: found that TC pro size and katana size run identical, runs about 1 full size down from your street shoe for a nice snug fit. Took about 4-5 sessions to break in, now they fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my Favorites to date! I bought this shoe a month ago and have climbed both indoors and outdoors and it has performed awesomely! True to size. Is now my go to shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Outdoor Climbing Shoe True to size, and great edging. Toe boot is perfect for my foot. Inside padded sock works well and reduces tension on the foot. Dual loops help in scrunching feet into shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Shoe does Everything I've worn all different kinds of climbing shoes, but the Katana is by far my favorite. It does an amazing job in cracks, but also has the sensitivity for slab and technical face. Even used them instead of my Solutions for all day projecting on V8-10 boulder problems at Stone Fort a couple weeks back. And hey, if you buy them from Moosejaw, you'll probably have them in a few days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stiff, comfortable and perform well This shoe runs about 1/2 size smaller than TC pros or muiras. My foot is size 10.5 street shoe and I wear 42.5 TC pros with liner socks for comfort and warmth. I got the Katana in 43 and the fit is similar. The katana climb really well while being comfortable. They take a little breaking in due to the deep heel cup but after 20 or so pitches they flatten out. Nice and stiff which makes them good for edging. They run wider and more roomy than all other La Sportivas I have used. I have a narrow foot with a really narrow heel and the heels are quite baggy, which is why I give them 4 stars, but the lacing system allows them to fit well enough that it's not a problem. If Sportiva made a lower volume womens version of these (in a gender neutral color like their old white muiras) it would be my go to for most climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite I lived in my La Sportiva TC Pro's and would occasionally switch to my So iLL Topo Collab shoes depending on what I was climbing. For a while I tolerated the very tiny air pockets around the bottom of my heel on both shoes (though my heel never slipped out)...until it actually affected my climbing. After slipping and/or falling off several attempts heel hooking in various positions on different routes, I thought it was time to look into some different shoes. After some research, the Katana Lace kept popping up as one of the best options for low volume heels. I've tried different Scarpa and 5.10 models before and I'd always end up with blisters on the back of my heel. I loved the overall fit of my TC Pro's so decided to stick with La Sportiva. I've been extremely happy with the Katana Laces since I put them on. Using the TC Pro's (and some online reviews) for sizing guidance, I did the same as my TC's and sized down from my street shoe size by 1 (38 street to 37 climbing shoe). The first day I slipped them on to climb, I wore them for 3 hours without a problem - they were surprisingly comfortable (relatively speaking for a climbing shoe) out of the box. I'm happy with its performance for edging and smearing, and the fact that I can get incrementally more precision and sensitivity from the Katana Laces which helps boost my confidence and comfort while climbing; and regarding the heels, I couldn't ask for a more perfect fit. It's a great all-around shoe!

So I wear a size 10.5 USA hicking shoe/boot. Curious if I should get this katana lace in a 43 or 42.5? Mostly climbing granite and mostly all alpine multi pitches. 

Asked by: Backcountry Boy
Hey there Backcountry Boy, great question! La Sportiva recommends sizing down at least one full size from your standard street shoe when sizing their climbing shoes. For this reason, I would highly recommend starting at 42.5 and going from there. I hope this helps!
