Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great entry to performance shoes After spending the time to size these carefully, my Katanas are a great step up from my beginner shoes. These are NOT P3 like the laceups, so do not consider them an equal alternative for crack climbing or rigitity. Think of them as high performance beginner shoes, really. Better rubber, narrower fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shoe for serious climbers Recommended by my instructor. The shoes have a nice edge for toeing foot chips. The picture makes them look more aggressive than they actually are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great semi aggressive shoe They seem to have improved the old women's katana a bit (yes, I had been climbing with the women's katana) with this new men's version. Same great shoe except I believe they added a softer lining. Its a pretty stiff shoe overall but softens over time. It only stretches a tiny bit length wise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving them now! I bought these a while back, and really struggled with them at first. When I put them on at home, they felt fine on my feet. Despite this the break in period was brutal. Loving them now. The way the velcro is designed makes it really easy to get a good tight fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing all around shoe I've had these for about 3 weeks and they have been absolutely incredible. Great balance of comfort and aggressive shoe. Great edging, smearing, and hooking ability. The velcro system is perfect and the look is solid too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Delaminated Rubber After a few weeks of wearing this shoe 3-4 times a week, the toe rubber started to separate from the rest of the shoe. It was as if the bottom of the shoe was just coming off. I do not think this was any kind of user error because I have never had a shoe do this. Other that that major issue, the shoe is awesome. I have heard other issues of La Sportiva rubber delaminating like this, so hopefully there was just a bad batch and they solved the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around shoe! I am no professional climber, but these shoes make me feel like one. I wear a 9.5R street shoe and I ordered a 41.5 (8.5+) shoe. They fit snug, but not too snug. The heel cup is perfect, and the toes are curled just right. These shoes grip really nice.,,,,I have much more confidence climbing with these shoes. ,,,,If you are looking for an all around climbing shoe, look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all purpose shoe out there! The Katanas are the best all around shoe. You can wear them for a couple of hours at the gym and feel good afterwards. They can handle gym friction and the polish of the outdoors. They won't hold you back as you push your limits.,,,,Love the Velcro - so easy! I have owned multiple pairs and when they wear out I get them resoled! Some pairs 3 (maybe 4) times before they finally waive their white flag.,,,,Heels fit very well, better than others that rhyme with Lad Lock where the heel is too big and sloppy!,,,,You will not be disappointed.

La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.

La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.

La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.

Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.

Lined shoes stretch about a half size.

PERFORMANCE FIT - Offers a high performance fit and a downturned last.

TECH FIT - A more technical fit and a last with neutral profile.

COMFORT FIT - A comfortable fit and a last with more volume and a neutral profile.
